It has been some time everyone. The last time I wrote one of these journals 2dcon was coming up and I was afraid that I might not be able to write as much during that time. OH boy did I underestimate that bugbear. I think I only had one poem put up on this blog that week. And I really was only expecting to miss one.
To give everyone an idea of whats been happening, work got crazy, really crazy. The upshot is I did get a promotion at work, but the adjustment period has been rough. I can’t really go into details but for awhile the uncertainty was stressful to say the least. But the good news is we’re getting things worked out now and everything is settling down.
Less Poems Per week, for now
I’ve going to be publishing poems two days a week instead of four days a week. The days will usually be Tuesday and Wednesday. I hope to start writing more poems soon, but stress, believe it or not, is not conducive to being creative. I’m also running low on my bank of unpublished poems and I would like more time to build those up again just in case. If things go well I might go back to the four a week schedule, or even go to a three day a week schedule to split the difference.
End of Hidden Sanctuary, Start of something new.
I no longer have the will to keep working on Hidden Sanctuary. And those stories get almost no views, so I don’t feel very guilty about it. Since that was part of an ongoing story and since I might still use some of those ideas latter for different writing projects I will delete those stories at the end of the week.
I do have something else I’m going to be working on I’m it’s place–well two things actually. I’ve finally decided to work on writing a book again. After finishing my first book and failing to get it published I wasn’t feeling very motivated. But now I feel a little more willing to try to write something else. But of course I will not be posting anything related to my book on here since I might still hold onto the dream of getting it published.
All that being said I am going to be working on some short stories on here. The stories you will be seeing here will be individual short stories with a lose connection in that they all take place inside the same multiverse. Some may even star reoccurring characters.
What I’ve been playing and doing this week.
2dcon was fun and I played a while ton of old games. I finally got to try Battle Toads after years of hearing roamers about it. I also got to play some arcade games and pinball which I haven’t gotten a chance to do in years. It was really nice. I’ve also been playing the mobile game Pokemon Masters which is a total cash grab I admit but I’m having fun with it. Still have not had a whole lot of time for reading but I hope that changes soon. I’ve been listening to the Daily Podcast from the New York Times this week for a lot of my news and reading AP articles about the damage done by hurricane Dorien.
That’s all from me this week.
