I know, I know I started off going great guns, one some times even two posts in a day, and then for the last 5 days or so I think I have managed one or two posts total. Not the best way to run things. I hate to say, “hey I was busy” but, hey I was busy. The worst part, my day job is about to spiral out of control for the next week, and I don’t know when I will have any time to post. But we will see.
So what have I managed to do:
Well, on a note of things that I didn’t expect, I got a reply for the Bishops office. It was quite positive. So I was pretty happy about that. I don’t suspect that anything will really change but hey I can hope.
As you can see by my last post, I have managed to get some stories read. I will have a few more reviews going up in the next few days, of stories that I have read and have dragging my feet on getting reviewed. Not that the reviews or the stories were or will be bad, just that I never quite know what to say in a review. With that said look for a few more reviews in the near future.
As I said at the opening, I have been busy. My time at the keyboard is limited so it is a balancing act to get everything that I want in. Lately my story writing time has been suffering a bit, some from too much to do and some from a lack of confidence in what I was able to do. But on that note yesterday I started a new story, and by the end of the day I was able to crank out 2300 words. Not legendary or anything but still not bad. The current working title of the story I think is a lot of fun, “The Lump That ate Marcia from New York.” I am thinking that the story will go for another thousand words or so, and I hope to have it ready for publication in a week or so.
I have made a little progress on two other stories that I am working on but not enough to really talk about. I am afraid one of them is going to have to go on the back burner for a while so that I can develop the ideas behind it, but I have not closed the door on it.
Last, but not least. Last night I got to interview Sarah Reinhard of Snoring Scholar as a part of the Galley Table from Flying Island press. I hope to have the audio from that interview up later today, and I will link to it from here. I will also post a review of her new book, “Catholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative, or Clueless” up here soon.
So as you can see I have had a lot going on, but I hope that things will start to calm down in the near future.
