After a long sojourn… doing nothing out of the ordinary, just not posting on this blog, I am back.
A few things have happened since last I posted, so maybe I have been doing things out of the ordinary. What is ordinary anyway? I digress. Anyway, I originally made this blog to chronicle the creation of my first independent publication, the Attic, which I have released as of the end of October! So, there’s been a bit of a time lapse, I apologise.
So the Attic went swimmingly, we got some excellent talent involved, including the cover artwork from Ann Upton, art student. I can’t thank everyone who contributed enough. I honestly could not ask for more. I love how it turned out. It is my baby. My own wee child. I learned a lot from the experience. Sure, I made a lot of mistakes (which nobody seems to have noticed yet so shush) but I am v. happy with the outcome, and the feedback.
But the Attic has come and gone (and may return, in Issue 2, who knows?), and now I must move on to other things. In particular, I must move on to putting together publications for my university writing society, of which I am the illustrious position of Publisher. Very grand. Our first publication of the academic year, my first publication as publisher, comes out this week. Wow that’s a lot of pubs. I’ll see how it goes and keep you posted… I think it came out wonderfully, but you’ll have to wait and see. I also upkeep the society blog (just as haphazardly as this one, but I’m trying to be good) so you will be able to see the publication in full there!
I should be back soon with more ramblings about writing and such. For now, here’s some pics from the Attic. I’ll be writing poetry and college assignments, and releasing the new pub (see how I abbreviated, that’s a technique right there, take it down if you wish) in the interim. Good day.
