This is the first time I’ve been on my blog in a while. There haven’t been any Chuck Wendig prompts the last few weeks so I haven’t written anything new. Real life has been rearing its head as well. With the end of a job, a move to a new state and all the attendant hoopla, and the beginning of an ongoing job search, I just haven’t had time to write. Besides which, the hard drive in my laptop died about six weeks ago, and I only just last week replaced it. which is an adventure worthy of a post in itself.
I just finished writing a new story, for The First Line. Today was the deadline for their summer submission. I had decided not to do it, because I didn’t want to rush it, but decided at the last minute to go ahead and rush it. I haven’t missed a single prompt all year between TFL and Wendig, and I didn’t want to start now. So it’s all good and my record is still perfect.
If the story is not picked up by TFL I will publish it when I receive notice. If they decide to publish it I will let you know as well, and you can buy the issue and see my wordy magnificence in real print for the first time ever. I’m not particularly optimistic–it was a rush job, after all–but we shall see.
When Chuck gets back to prompts I will be writing again. I may start trying to write more anyway, and at some point I want to actually revise Everlasting Tunes. I KNOW!!! We shall see, Hoping, wishing, crossing fingers. Til then, please keep checking back and supporting your local blogger.
