This is a ‘now page’, as described here. It’s a whole movement kinda thing.
I don’t update it very often, do I?
Since early February 2022, I’ve been working for Civica, a British company that provides software and services to local and central government entities, and increasingly to private-sector companies too. I’m on a project for a client in the payment card industry.
I’m developing software in Java again, after an almost year-long stint doing CI/CD (that’s continuous integration/continuous delivery) using a language called Terraform.
I finished my MA — my thesis was a 15,00 word extract from my novel-in-progress plus a 3000 word preface — in September of 2021. I passed with a merit, and graduated in May 2022.
I finished the first draft of the novel sometime in 2023. Right now, as autumn slips into winter, I should be seeking beta readers and/or agents and/or investigating self-publishing.
I am constantly shying away from those things.
But I wrote a little bit of a space opera that I started years ago and parked. And just recently (as of 2023-10-20) I’ve started a new novel, set in Edinburgh around 1983. I started NaNoWriMo this year. I soon knew I wasn’t going to get close to 50,000 words, but I did write steadily all through November, and the new project stands at nearly 19,000 words as of the start of December.
