Funny that I haven’t been posting. I’ve often thought that having an author blog when you are an unpublished author is a bit like being a stage actor who is expected to keep the audience entertained by standing in front of the curtain doing whatever comes to mind until the play is written. In other words, a bit absurd.
So, I actually have some news, I’ve known about it for a while and I’m only just now here. Yesterday I deposited a small check from Stupefying Stories for a story currently posted on their blog. I have a piece coming out in the Spring edition of New Myths. I’ve laid out a chart to keep awareness of the work I have out right in front of me. I’ve recognized a grammatical flaw to which I am prone and am correcting it. Things are coming right along.
Like a lot of people, I spent more of the past year compulsively reading the news and unable to focus on much of anything else than I would have preferred. I guess the shock is subsiding to manageable proportions.
Let’s hope it stays that way.
