Seriously.  I've been here and there, around town and downtown, but I've still been slowly writing away.  I'm working on a few things for TheDrydenExperiment, including a few stories that are appearing in an upcoming horror collection.  My novel writing has slowed down again, but that mostly has to do with having too many ideas and not being able to organize them.  Who Killed The Giants? is my passion project still, the one I want to finish, but I honestly need a week to sit down and plan the entire novel without getting distracted.  Is that possible?  Probably not, but I always seem to get things done on time.

I'm halfway through my three-year program now, and spending too much money on textbooks and groceries.  My hope for the summer is to stay in the city with a co-op job, but there are so many unknowns with everything, I won't know what I'm doing with myself until it's too late.

I have a lot of reading to catch up on here too.  Yikes :o 

I want to publish more stories here this year.  That's my goal.  I may be writing now, but I want to write more.

So...........what's new with you guys?

PS - The DD Suggestion Drive is coming again in February!  LiliWrites is wonderful and has put a lot of work into it, so if you'd like to participate, you can find a group for the event at DDSuggestionDrive along with a FAQ and Prize Drive 

FAQs1. What is a Drive?
For the purposes of DDSuggestionDrive, a "drive" is a period of time (usually a calendar month) in which the group is actively encouraging all of DeviantArt's members to suggest Daily Deviations. Much like a blood donation drive, the idea is to get as many people suggesting as many pieces as possible within the drive's time-frame.
2. What do I get for participating?
Aside from the warm-fuzzy feeling when one of your suggestions gets accepted, all participants are put into a prize drawing. The chances of winning a prize goes up the more suggestions you make. The three people who suggest the most deviations will also win CMs/Points/Prints based on funds available to the group during that drive.
3. What do you mean "when a drive is active"?
That simply refers to whether or not the group is currently encouraging DD suggestions. When a drive is active, the group posts a blog that is u

Is that the end of the world, or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a 23 year old civil engineering student puttering around somewhere in Canada. I just finished my BA in Geography and that's probably the direction I'm headed in, but there's something I'd rather be doing. I love writing about dark, gritty things, and you would never guess it from seeing me in person. My favorite topics to tackle are: the apocalypse and zombies, space travel and slice-of-life pieces. I got the gift of writing and love of the strange and obscure from my dad's dad; born in 1911 Russia and who believed aliens walked the Earth.

I don't publish on Deviantart as much as I used to, and part of it is due to the fact that I don't write short stories at much. I work on projects with TheDrydenExperiment and am busy with school, but short stories appear here whenever something amazing comes to mind.

My first book, published with TheDrydenExperiment with illustrations by Miyori999 can be found here, and is also available on Amazon Canada

My second book, solo and full length, can be found Here
