I’m working on something that I think will be interesting and fun. What I have so far is a sort of preview for the whole work, which will be an Arthurian tale when it is completed, giving my personal take on Arthur’s final battle. It’s probably too long to post here in its entirety, so I am going to post a link to my Wattpad page. Please go there and check it out.
There is also a new flash fiction challenge from http://terribleminds.com/ramble/. It’s a little bit different from the last two. I want to do it, but I need to spend some time generating a worthy idea.
Anyway, off to bed.
I just finished submitting my first query for writing a magazine article. I would be writing for escapistmagazine.com, and the article would be about digital piracy. If accepted, it would be my first piece of professional writing, also the first piece of writing I would actually get paid for. I have no idea how likely it is that I will be accepted, but I think my idea was good. I should hear back soon, and I will update with the news. I would really like this to work out. I write academic papers all of the time, so I have plenty of experience, and it would be nice to get paid for one.
In which I very briefly relate how the blogging / writing process is going so far, and talk a bit about what my goals and plans are. I also give thanks to the people who have been helping and supporting me so far.
A response to a “flash fiction” challenge from over at http://terribleminds.com/ramble/. The challenge this time was to write a story, of 1000 words or less, about making a sandwich.
I didn’t think that a story actually about making a sandwich would be readable, so I settled for a story that takes place while someone is making a sandwich. That’s close enough, right?

What’s The Poop, Wendig?.
This article is amazing, not because of what it means in terms of Chuck Wendig’s life and work – even though what it means for him is a great thing – but in terms of what it means for all creative people. Another very interesting and thrilling example of the same thing is the business of Tim Schafer and Doublefine raising over two million dollars on kickstarter to develop a game.
25 Reasons That Writers Are Bug-Fuck Nuts.
For the 2 or 3 people who have visited this blog that did not come directly from Terribleminds, this is a blog by Chuck Wendig, a particularly foul mouthed and humorous author who writes advice for writers and observations about the writing life. It’s pretty good, you should check it out (Adam!), but easily offended people should keep clear.
