In 2012, JosephK wrote a story about paper objects coming to life. The objects were relentlessly tormented by aptly named pets; Bark the Dog and Claws the Cat. In the end, the paper crafts managed to trick Bark and Claws into falling into thorn bushes, and the pets never bothered them again.
JosephK did not write a novel in 2013. He simply "didn't feel like it".
