Untitled Post

Yesterday I finished a story that will appear here on the blog at a later date, and today I'm starting a book that I hope will be published elsewhere. (By book I mean a novella that will see light as an ebook so let's not get excited.) I've got a dozen short stories that need attention and a novel that's lain fallow for ten months but that I think about every day.

So I'm lousy at juggling things. Those stories should have been done and sent out to retrieve rejection slips from publishers. I could list excuses like  a day job and a family that require my attention and any number of other distractions that have kept me from writing. I've even written about this here before but I won't point you to those posts because it's time the excuses were done.

I'm here, I'm there, I'm not really everywhere but it certainly feels like it. The blog is going to be more about process and progress rather than some random thinking things that will only pop up every so often. I'm not promising three times a week updates, but I'll be here once a week (usually on Sundays I think) with some thoughts about storytelling, my writing process, where my ideas come from, what tools I use and when we get to November NaNoWriMo.

There may be extra posts about music, movies, books and even politics. You can certainly disagree with me about anything I write here, in fact I hope to write some things that would entice interaction in the comment section.

If you need an invitation to come along for the ride, consider yourself invited. No need to RSVP.

If there's a subject you'd like to see me write about, let me know in the comments. See you next week.
