Yes, there seems to be a lot of it right now.
I posted yesterday’s blog and then got asked when I was going to continue with the blog about my driving lessons. Oops! I was supposed to be doing an entry per lesson and it just kinda, sorta dropped off as I got distracted by other things. Not ideal.
Oh and then I thought about The Ice Wolf Tavern and realised that I haven’t done any writing there for a long time either. Most definitely not good since its RP which is where it all started in the first place. Its a shame to let something like that slip. Especially since so many of my favourite characters were created there. Characters like Michael Garran, Diavian Hatara, Taithin Shatar and Keladora deserve to be free. Hell, that’s where Trya Fenwyn came from before I nicked her for LARPing with, so I need to get back into that.
THEN I spent a portion of this evening (the last three or so hours I believe) working on finishing up The First Time. A short piece (currently 5,099 words) about the meeting of two bodies who discover that they love each other dearly. But they happen to be women. Call it erotica if you like; I’ve been hinting about it for long enough that I figured I’d better just get on and finish it. I started the piece in September 2009 for goodness sake! I’m asking people if they want to do a read through of it for me, offer opinions and the like before I put it on the site in the Excerpts section. I’m quite pleased with it, though I’m worried that the tone and feel of the piece might have slipped slightly from where it began. I’ll have to see what people think when they read it. When I’m satisfied that I’ve done enough work on it, with feedback, it will go up here too; in full.
>Yes… writing, writing everywhere! I’ve been reading through some of my old work too; not SORB or Clash, or anything I’ve talked about in blogs in much detail, but things that are really old. I’ve been using it as research to show me how much my writing style and choice of genre has changed over the years. I always tend to do it around the time of my birthday. o.O Go figure. Anyway that has brought back a lot of memories of stories that never quite made it off the ground and things that I really want to try again. Crickey and I want to write something for Shortfuse, though I have no idea what their next theme is yet. I have to try to stay open and free to that when I do know they type of thing they want, I can dive right on in.
As you can see… busy, busy, busy!
But don’t get me wrong… I LOVE IT!
Though tomorrow I will be taking something of a break to go to Birmingham so I can see a dear friend of mine for lunch. I’m very looking forward to that.
Oh yes, and I haven’t forgotten about the gallery either. I’ve got permission from all but one of the fabulous photographers who have snapped me over the years to use their images and, from it, its quite likely that there will be affiliate links going up to. I can’t pay these kind people – I’m not making any money from this site 😦 – but the least I can do is link back to them through here to show off more of their work. If that’s what they’d like.
