I meant to have a blog posted yesterday, but arrrgh this week has been a hell of family emergencies and sleepless nights. However, I am here now and fully intend to blog about... something.
This happened. Actually, it happens a lot, but they do not like digital proof so they tend to scatter when the phone comes out. If I meet an untimely end, it may be because I posted this image.
I have been trying to be a more active social networker lately. Mostly it comes in the form of tweets, because I can totally eat up thirty seconds of your time with nonsense and not feel guilty. Any longer than that and I feel like anything I put out into the public's eye needs to be cut and edited several times just to make sure that every moment a stranger gives me might be worth it. So, if you're not following me on the Twitter, and you don't mind me trying to be funny or overly-cynical or even talking about books once in awhile, you can follow me here. I will do my best to never waste more than thirty seconds of your time, per tweet, but I'm not making any promises.
If you like audiobooks, I am currently listening to The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (who is actually J.K. Rowling). I like it so far, quite a lot actually. It's a crime/thriller novel and I absolutely love the voice Rowling has found in this genre.
In old-school paper form, I'm currently reading 20th Century Ghosts, a collection of short stories by Joe Hill. The book is filled with ghost stories and non-ghost stories which are equally well-written, and the collection is beautifully dark, scary, and sometimes sad. I urge you to read it if you haven't already.
Unfortunately, my daily writing faltered a bit this week with all the craziness around me, but it was a temporary bump in the road. I am already back, with my ass at the desk, trying to catch a few decent scenes on the page.
I think I'll leave you now. I need coffee and there is work to be done. Also, I need to edit this a few times to make sure I'm using the precious time you're giving me in a wise manner. Have a good week, thanks for reading.
