I sincerely hope the world doesn't end this year. I don't think I have time to fit that in. Things to do in 2012... Firstly we'll be moving into our new house - finally! - in beautiful Wollongong. After that, I'll be writing a 'how to' article to appear in WQ (the Qld Writers' Centre magazine) all about podcasting and what you need to do to get a top quality podcast together and on the net. [My previous article for WQ on small press publishing is here.] Then in September, I'll be a guest of honour at Conflux 8, so between now and then I'll be mulling over my GoH speech. It's not so much, 'what should I talk about?' as 'what should I leave out?' as I'll only have an hour and there's so much that I could talk about, including small press publishing, what is good editing, good writing, how do the editor and writer work to make a story the best it can be, what are the pitfalls and dangers? Anyway it'll all be sorted by September. At the same con, we'll be launching Adam Browne's debut novel Pyrotechnicon, and there's lots to do on that between now and then. And then of course there's continuing work on the Kresh novel. It's going well. Really well, but I don't think it will be ready for a publisher before 2013, so those Mayans had better be wrong!
