Hey everybody! It's been a long time since I've updated anything and I was tired of the old journal being long and stuff. So here's a new one.
Is anyone planning on doing NaPoWriMo? My attempt last year was pretty pathetic, but I'm thinking about giving it a shot again. I'm not all that good at writing poetry that doesn't like, ask me to be written, you know?
I'm still working on "Chaos Children" (my current novel project, and the subject of these
works of flash fiction). It's about 100,000 words in and will go a while yet, I think. On a similar note, I have been toying with the idea of starting a mailing list or something similar that would involve like, sending out my novels chapter by chapter for reading/comment? I don't know if there's any kind of interest in that, but I wouldn't mind getting some eyes on some of the works if anyone was.
Things happening in my life: I am graduating from college in May, have not found a job, and am generally an even greater giant ball of anxiety than I usually am. I assume that comes across in my poetry. I don't know. I'm getting by, anyway, and school at the very least seems very very routine and un-challenging. I have a presentation to give on my capstone project ("Writing About Art: Making the Unseen Seen") on April 26. That's exciting.
At any rate, it all has very little to do with my existence here, and I usually don't bore you guys with the details of my uninteresting and so very irrelevant life. How is everyone out there? Still ticking and waiting for spring, or happily in the bliss of a place that is already warm? Stressed out? Not stressed out? Tell me all the things, guys.
Your science-fiction afflicted friend,
(P.S. - I think the deviantart April fool's thing, thoughtArt or whatever, is a fun little thing, if perhaps not as dramatic as some of the tricks they've played before.)
