(cough, cough) “What’s with all the dust and cobwebs around here?”

Yes, it’s been awhile since I last posted. The last few years have been crazy from a professional software engineer perspective, and even though I had the bandwidth to do more here during 2020, COVID really left me feeling….well, you know.

But today I started writing my second novel–I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo throughout April–and I thought it might be a good idea to crank this baby up for the occasional update on progress (although mostly I’m planning on doing updates via Twitter).

This novel is called Perisher and it’s about the Commanding Officer’s Qualification Course for Royal Navy submarine commanders during WW2. It’s fictional, and based on the January 1943 course. I originally considered this as a TV series, but eventually came around to it making a pretty good novel idea too.

So yea, I’m back–no fooling. (looks around) Might need to spruce this place up a bit.
