Status Update #1
Olá. Hola. Bonjour. Jambo. こんにちは (Kon'nichiwa). 你好 (Nǐ hǎo). Hello.
Sorry folks. It has been a few weeks since I made my last blog post. I know, of course, that all twelve of you have been on pins and needles wondering what I am up to. Well, other than being stressed as hell about money, shocked (as a father and a human being) by the VMA performance by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus (WTF is up with your tongue, Miley? And Robin, seriously your song is a date rape song. If you don't agree, go take a look at the lyrics), and of course bewildered by the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman (I know this isn't the end of the world).
I'm being cheeky. Yes, I am stressed, but for the rest, there are a lot of real issues in the world. Healthcare, poverty, political corruption, Syria, chemical warfare, human trafficking........The list goes on, and on.
But, otherwise things are progressing well. I have been writing fiction every day. In the last 20 days I have written over 6,000 words. I finished a short story I was working on. I gave it two editing passes, sent it out to beta readers, and started a new story.
I want to thank "The Magic Spreadsheet" for my progress, MightyMur Lafferty for telling me about it, and both Tony Pisculli and Mark Lindberg for helping keep it running (Tony is the creator of the spreadsheet by the way) (I tried to find links for both Tony and Mark, but I could not be sure that the websites I found were the correct individuals, however you can find them on FaceBook. If anyone needs extra incentive to write every day give it a try.
My second short story is coming along well. I am thinking about posting either excerpts of this story, or the whole story on my blog. If I do it will most likely be temporary, and put up for sale on Amazon at a later date.
You should expect to see more consistent blog posts in the future. As stated before, my goal is to post weekly. I think Sunday is a good day to set aside for blog writing, so Monday would be the day to expect new content posted.
Thanks for stopping by. Ciao!
