2016: in review

There will be a lot of blog posts titled this, I assume, over the next several days.

All in all, its been a pretty rough year for the world. Trump, Brexit, all the celebrity deaths. Its been a pretty rough year for me too, on several personal levels.

My epilepsy is worse than its ever been, and I’m trialing my last chance of meds before we get on to the really sucky side effect ones. Depression is a bitch that just won’t quit. Uni is a special type of hell. My computer has developed some rather interesting quirks, one of which that it refuses to save documents.

On the downside this has crippled my writing pace. I’m still about a third of the way through the first draft of Magewar. I did get several chapters, almost another third of the way in before my computer decided that no it would not save to the cloud, nor would it give me my draft. I lost a large chunk.

I’m still plodding along but I can not make any promises that it will be done by such a date. It’s not fair to you and it’s not fair to me.

I’m going into 2017 with hope though. I have good people around me. I achieved a 2;1 in this year’s result for my degree, despite being a mass of issues, and hardly attending. Things are slowly calming, and looking up. Oh, and I managed to publish the paperback. Yes, the cover did not work so well on that format, so I will be looking into getting a better one. I don’t recommend buying it unless you feel you must have a physical copy. Its here for those that just have to have it.

I wish you all the best for your own 2017,

P. Tempest

Author page

I was discussing things with some other authors and they pointed out the a more focused author’s page would be better than the amalgamated horror that I have here.

I have to fill it with content yet, but it is functional. Decided that it was best to get it going and see how things go.
