Back in the saddle (again)

So after a semi-long radio silence again, I'm back before this blog craving for your pardon. There's something to be said about my current work schedule in that I can only accommodate one or two things in-between work, life and sleep.

In this case, the past couple of weeks has been filled with trying to finish a story of (post) apocalyptic lengths as well as George R.R. Martin's equally lengthy A Dance of Dragons. Mind, I rushed reading Martin's book as a planned review that I aim to submit somewhere else as well. Ironic isn't it, that a writer's work is an act of submission? Somewhere, the gods of language must be laughing.

That doesn't mean the rest of my life is at a standstill. Work on the much-delayed SF online anthology (though not in the same vein as Harlan Ellison's The Last Dangerous Visions, I hope) is moving apace with a website that I hope will be as good as the last one thematically. I foresee a launch soon. Please, God, make it so.

For this week, I'll still loaded with freelance work and rushing a viewing of the complete season 1 of HBO's Game of Thrones. If I skip sleep for one or two days, maybe I'll also get to write a couple of book reviews for this blog. Heaven knows it's been a long time since I wrote one.

So how has 2011 been for you people?
