hope you are having a nice time on the internet, whoever you are.
thank you for looking at my blog.
i just looked at it too, at old posts from about 2 or 3 years ago and felt strange in a way that you probably wouldn't do unless you were me or knew me very well or had just been looking at old posts on your own blog. you know what i mean. hi. hope you're having a nice time.
i was thinking about updating this more. i was thinking about doing a video diary in January, too, maybe, like every day, possibly, just sitting there, talking to camera about my hobbies/hopes/dreams/psoriasis/etc. does that seem like a good thing or a weird thing? if [anyone] comments saying 'good thing' i guess i'll do it. if this post just sits here for a week collecting comments from spambots about cheap handbags, etc, i probably won't do it.
(i don't have psoriasis btw (yet (p.s. am i spelling 'psoriasis' correctly?)))
here is another idea i had while riding home on my bike this evening from a shop i was working in, too: [idea typed and then deleted due to feeling weird about even asking whoever's reading my blog if it's a good idea or not. it was something to do with doing a free ebook version of things i've already published online/in magazines/etc. i don't know.]
basically what i am saying is: hi, thank you for reading this, hope you're okay (whoever you are).
p.s. feel free to photoshop your head on top of mine in this picture or something if you want to use it as an e-card next Xmas:

here are some things i have been doing which are not updating this blog.
i have a new website now: chriskillen.com
i was involved in making a film called Wizard's Way (with Socrates Adams and Joe Stretch) and it is going to be coming out in 2013. you can find out more info and updates and watch the trailer and things here: savewizardsway.com
i have finished writing a draft of a second novel that doesn't make me feel completely weird or sick or embarassed (it still needs a lot of work though) and sent it to Canongate and have had word back that it is going to be published at the start of 2014 (year after next). it is called 'In Real Life' and when people ask me what it is about i have been saying, 'it's about people who use the internet a lot when they're not on the internet.'
i started a band which is just me so far: dogsmusic.bandcamp.com
i seem to be doing a lot of shit jokes/etc on twitter at the moment too, so if you are a person on twitter who likes reading someone make 6-9 frantic/somewhat-shit jokes in quick succession and then go silent again for 2-3 days and then the cycle to repeat again (tweets mostly occur during UK daytime hours) you can find me at @chriskillen
i've also decided to maybe start blogging again, a bit, maybe (we'll see). but check back. if you want. i guess. to 'herald' this decision, i've changed font too. please leave feedback re: new font size, etc. (am willing to change font back again if everyone's unhappy with it.)
