Good News, Everyone: I’m Employed.

It’s not a writing job and not a permanent position, but I will be working until the summer of 2014 on something semi-related to my degree. The Research Council of Norway has hired me for their Tax Incentive Scheme and their Core Competence and Value Creation in ICT program. So far, it’s both challenging and fun.

In addition to professional life, I’m doing two parallel training programs, participating in a relay race and a Norwegian Spartan race, and trying to keep my morning writing routine going. I’m slipping a little, but I’m sure I just need to get used to my new work load. I’m working on a new novel, and once I get my scheduling down, I should be writing that in the mornings, and editing the other one in the afternoons.

I repeat: the most important thing is to keep writing. Just keep writing.



  1. So you are running Holmenkollstafetten with your new colleagues?

  2. Nice. Congrats!
    Seems you’ve become quite a badass since I last saw you. I like it. Keep up the good work. I’m sure you’ll make it!

  3. Life is a complex quagmire, but we have the advantage of a focused, singular imperative.

    Keep. Writing.
