El oh el. Ha ha ha.
I’m not going to beat around the bush this week: I still have not finished that Scientology book. I like it; I’m just not done. I had a problem this week; said problem prohibited me from reading. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a pretty good problem to have.
I started my first novel. All the work I spent on Presidents’ Day led to the first few pages of my baby. I have high hopes of finishing this one, although it could very easily wind up novella-length. I have yet to know exactly where it’s going, but I’ll make sure to keep you all posted. I’m pretty pumped.
As for the short story that I said I’d have done: It kind of is. It’s nothing new, but I think it’s probably publishable. I wrote it for a Writer’s Digest contest sometime last year. I didn’t win anything, but I’m still pretty proud of it…the only reason I hesitate to put it on the web is because it is rather vulgar and I have family members that don’t really approve of that stuff, so trying to convince them to read something that says “fuck” a few times wouldn’t be the easiest thing in the world. I’m going to ask my writer-friend to look it over and see what he thinks… I may end up rewriting the damn thing all together, but the story will find its way on the interwebs one day soon.
On a more personal note, I’ve narrowed my college choices down to two. Originally, I was trying to get into Columbia University to pursue my BA in English. I’m no longer doing that,(I’ll never know if I would have actually been admitted or not) and instead I’m going to study at either Butler University or IU. I have yet to decide, but I’m sure I’ll be able to develop anywhere I go.
I know this wasn’t a book review, (and if you followed me strictly for those I apologize; they will be back!) but it was all stuff I needed to say. You might have been able to do without the college details, but this is my website and I like to talk about what’s going on in my life. It beats talking to my dog, anyway.
PS- The whole reading thing will continue…but, it’s going to have to take a backseat to my novel and other writing projects. I may just cut the list down to what I have now. It all depends.
