I’ve been asleep at the wheel again around here, and I wish I could say that’s going to change, but that is not a promise I can easily keep. Instead, I vow to keep coming back, to stop talking about plans and what I can do better, and to simply do when, where, and how I can and report on my findings. Why list here what I have to do? I know what I have to do and chances are you don’t care. At the very least you don’t care when it’s not done but rather when it is.
I ramble in these posts sometimes. Okay, all the time, but that’s what my first stories were like and sometimes I still write like that. Sometimes I still write stories without an end or a story arc. A premise is the easy part, and I don’t even really have one of those for this post. Don’t forgive me. I love excuses, procrastination, and avoidance. These are my biggest curses, and I’m sure most can relate to that. Which makes it mostly uninteresting.
Here’s what I did accomplish. I finished proofing and tagging. I’ll write a post about tagging and what it will mean going forward later (more promises). I also updated my published works page to include “Words for Home.” I hope you enjoyed reading it over at the Bronzeville Bee. Full disclosure, my Dad gave me the premise for that story years ago. Though the premise has been thrown around in Sci-Fi a lot in one form or another, I hope you will agree that I provided an interesting take on it.
Oh, also I’d like to start including quotes from what I’m reading here from time to time. I said I would do instead of promise so here is my first, though in this case, it’s from something I recently finished. Enjoy!
