Yeah, I got 2.5 days left in this year, so I figured I’d better do a bit of a round up.Â Other writers might have a better wrap up, as they won’t be so Nate-centric, but I wanted to put this up anyway.Â
So here goes.
Writing-wise, 2006 was my best year so far.Â The years started off right, with stories appearing at Aoife’s Kiss, Wicked Karnival, and The Late Late Show.Â I place a short in an anthology for the first time: Gods and Monsters, which is still available, by the way!Â If you haven’t picked up a copy, then move your ass!
Through my travels to the Borderlands Press Boot Camp, World Horror Con, and Horrorfind, I met a lot of great people, both writers and fans, who I now consider friends.Â You all know who you are.Â Oliveri, it would greatly help if you would show up to one of these things so I can buy you a shot or two.Â Â
I finished my first novel and started my second.Â I wrote two novellas.Â Worked on three more novellas with other writers.Â I have no idea how many new short stories I wrote.Â More than a few.
I had my first public reading, and I sold a short because of it.Â More news on that once it inches closer to publication.Â I will say it’s a new Rundberg story.
I had a great year with Shawna, as we’ve now been together more than six years.
I lost more hair and gained a few inches around the belly.Â I did, however, lose some of the beer weight around my face.Â That was nice.
