Hello everyone. I just wanted to take a moment to update my readers as to how things are going for me after my month of writing. First and foremost I’ve been taking a break for a few days, just letting everything sort of settle down and recharge. Work has been getting even more hectic these last few days, so it’s nice to be able to get home and just fall asleep if I’m tired, or relax and watch a movie, maybe play some video games, if I’m not.
I guess the biggest thing to note is that I’m still writing. I started a new story today, one that I will hopefully continue tomorrow. I was inspired by trying to go to the pharmacy today after work, an experience that I hope not to have to relive in the near future. So I thought I’d use that as a jumping off point for the next story. I’ll let you know if it’s coming along, and if I decide to post it or sit on it for a while.
And another thing. I am thinking of writing and polishing a story and submitting it to a lit mag or e-zine of some kind. Obviously I’m going to wait until I think I have an piece that’s good enough, but I know that the folks over at Weird Tales have recently re-opened submissions for their quarterly mag. They have a themed issue coming up that I might try to shoot for. It’s theme is “ice”. So, ice, cold, winter, desolation, those sort of themes. Arctic tundra, depths of space, meat locker in Chicago (all their examples), all are fair game. Anyone have any suggestions? Obviously I have my own, but I’m not above looking for inspiration wherever it might be found. Just curious to see what ideas someone else might have that I’d never even considered before.
Anyway, that’s a brief update from me. I’ll try to post some more fiction soon-ish, but no promises. I may also start doing some revisions of older works soon, so I’ll definitely post those when they’re done. Thanks all.
