2016 was a pretty productive year for me creatively. Some of the largest projects I did are either still in-progress or forthcoming, so I can’t talk about them here yet unfortunately. On the other hand, lots of my older work was translated or anthologised this year, so in the end things just about break even.
My fiction wordcount was just over 260,000 words, which is about half of what I wanted to achieve. I guess there’s always next year to try again!
Anyway, here’s what I did in 2016.
