Nanowrimo Success!

Yesterday brought an end to another year of Nanowrimo, and while I was not working on a single specific work, I did manage to get more than 50,000 words over my daily writing. In fact, I ended up with 52,678 words.

They can all be read under the November 2023 heading here.

New website!

I've spent longer than I anticipated on this, but it's here now, my handcrafted brand new website

All of the short form fiction is uploaded and it should all be formatted correctly, if you find anything untoward or inconsistent, feed me some back at (my name) at (this website) and I will fix any errors, or dead links etc.

Weekly updates of the short form fiction will restart in early November.

Long form fiction is currently on hiatus - both in a writing sense and a publishing sense. You can read why on that page.

Fanfiction should be good to go; I've only written two stories for that and they should be available right now. If they aren't, then you can read them over at AO3 - same account.

The Other Projects page will be finished in early November
