It seems I’ve been missing in action almost forever with this site and words in my word processor. Let’s just say it’s been a hectic personal summer with losing my mother – and the resulting professional wasteland of writing and sorting out stories – amidst all the stuff that accompanies a death (mostly emotions but toss in the requisite paperwork etc as well.) I’m sure many of you have experienced it so it won’t come as a surprise.
One of the other problems is summed up nicely in a “bit of education can be a dangerous thing.” 🙂 I took some courses, did a ton of reading about the future and predicting it, and then sat back and did the unexpected. I actually put some of the things I’d learned into practice. (Who knew that’s what you were supposed to do with education? Right!)
That produced some interesting story ideas and project notes.
I’ve put all the short fiction up on Medium right here. I’ll continue putting the short stories there and on my website sporadically as I write them.
Note that you can read a small number of posts/stories a month at medium without joining the site.
I’ve been totally remiss in not sharing some of the articles I find interesting across the Net. I’ve made a note to myself to do that in the future so (hopefully) you’ll see those coming semi-regularly.
Well, yes and no.
The yes part is I’m maintaining and developing a file of book and series ideas so it’s possible I’ll launch into one of those in the near future. (The summer is mostly over and my big writing and productivity season is almost here.)
Hey – I’m of an age where my contemporaries are all out on the golf course so if I slow down and take some time – I don’t feel at all guilty about it.
The no part is because I’m in the middle of a rather large writing project in another genre that’s taking up an incredible amount of time and learning. I’m several hundred thousand words into that one with no end in sight.
All The News That’s Fit To Print
And that’s the honest truth folks.
I’m involved deeply in another writing project and I’m learning a ton of stuff about writing large series. This will/should make it easier to write something interesting here in another few months.
So now you know what’s happening and why you haven’t heard from me here.
Thanks for reading.
