250

Blog No. 250

surprise-bags-9Hey, look at that number right above this sentence. That’s 250 weekly blog posts and all but about ten of those have been in a row. When I first started this page, I had no idea what I was going to do, where I was going, or what my writing future would be. I wanted it to be something big, but it was all wishful thinking. It wasn’t until a few years later that I actually decided to take writing seriously and the blog had been ignored. Part of the reason I initially stopped was because I had gotten sick (and that lasted a year) but mostly it was because I didn’t have a vision. Now that the focus is on writing and the routine has been built, the weekly posts seem natural. Really this is about 240 in a row, but those original posts are still way at the bottom (if you ever want to read them). For now, I think  the rest of this post is going to be a grab-bag because I have a few things to talk about, but none of them are big (or really well thought out). Here we go. Continue reading “250”

To refresh your memory, this may end up being the last ChiSeries Windsor reading, or maybe the last for a while, since their normal funding hasn’t come through. I say they because there is a dedicated group of people from ChiZine Publications who started and support the series (at the moment from their own pockets) but I suppose I’m part of that now. Even thought I said it last time, I think it’s really important to stress how big a deal this is and what a great thing it can be for Windsor. Continue reading “Now’s Your Chance”

Interview with Me

Blog no. 218

cur0zshLast week was pretty busy. I’ve had some busy times in the past, but that last run was just the start of something that someone terrible might try to add ‘mageddon to the end to make a ridiculous portmanteau. January was hectic, February is going to be crazy sauce. Even taking away my increased weekly word count, I’ve had to stay on my toes, planning, re-planning, and ultra-scheduling to get it all to fit. Now, I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. It’s the busy times that will lead to my writing as a job dream to become a reality. It’s just busy enough to worth mentioning. Strangely, this week is pretty straight forward. Perhaps the eye of the storm? Continue reading “Interview with Me”
