Sweet Mother Of Elvis, has it really been exactly eighteen months since I updated here?

News, schmews. Just letting you know that Shear Exhaustion, a shorty-short for the wonderful FlashShot is on its way to an inbox near you sometime in the near-ish future.

Back to doing nothing for another few months. BTW, you can now find me on FaceBook if you have a terminal social life. Just look for Ian Banks in Australia.

Catch you on the flipside.

Nope, I'm not dead yet. Letting you know that FlashShot no. 1625, featuring my shorty-short story, Family monster, showed up in my inbox tonight, cheering me up re writing immensely.

Welcome to 2007, folks. I'm sorry that this has come a little later than most of my New Year's welcomes, but sometimes life does that to you.

So let's start with a quick review of the writing life in 2006...

On the plus side, I had 7 new stories printed and 3 old stories reprinted. Plus I had my first non-job interview in ten years. I have one story marked for future publication.

On the negative side...

... I have one story marked for future publication. My first novel came off the market. I wrote very little. A very good friend passed away (I didn't note it here because I was upset and because any words I could add wouldn't do justice to his passing. One of my favourite writers died.

Negatives win, I'm afraid.

No resolution this year: just a wish that I can put bum on seat and tap away at a few stories. I've got a completed novel I want to sell and a half-done novel (sequel to A Stranger In The Realm, for what it's worth) that I aim to finish, plus a slew of short stories that I want to sell.

From time to time I may even post news on this website.

So until then...
