And so...

Another one is away. A short story that is. Cross yer fingers, kids.

Working on two new shorts and a longer short? That make sense? Old West kinda horror adventure deal. The latter is comin' slow and the clock is ticking for ideas to flow but we'll see.

Threw down some roughs for some art this week too. One needs the OK before I dig into the next phase. The other is just a doodle of a character. Need to figure out my scanner issues or get one or something. Don't want to have to travel to scan my work then send it from home. Still, I need the work and the dough.

What can ya do?

Keep at the Great Work that's what!

Dewa mata,

Back in the Saddle

Writer's may write by themselves but it certainly isn't a solitary endeavor. We need other writer's POV between first and final drafts. I do. I get way too close to the work of the moment. Some stuff that I would have tossed to the wind I gave new life to on the advice of another writer.

Thankfully so.

I'm knocking the dust off and retooling two past projects that I have a lot of fun writing but discarded thinking they were worthless.

Two separate worlds, different genre but works I am proud of none the less. Write what you love.

Workin on something fun with Wild Bill as well. Research on this particularly weird piece has lead me to Alchemy and the bizarre revelation (maybe) that Isaac Newton studied a fair share of that chemical-philosopher's art. Weird and worth digging deeper about.

I'm finding more story ideas than I have time to write.

Such is the road of the writer.

The Return

Life and computer woes have made this blog rather sluggish but I should be back for a spell.

Watched the new Green Lantern toon last night and enjoyed it quite a bit. If DC maintains this level of quality they might get back in the game versus Marvel.

Gotten a bunch of rejection letters for some shorts. Workin on more.

And Wild Bill Hickok shares his birth day with my wife. How cool is that? I am very jealous.

Too early to blog here. More later.
