It's been 2015 for more than two weeks now, but I think I'm only now starting to realize it. Fifteen years since 2000 - I still remember being nine years old and going into my dad's office in 2000 to make sure the computers weren't all about to fail miserably. 10 years since a slew of my favorite bands released some of their first albums - albums that would end up defining high school for me. Wild.
Anyway, I've been employed (at a Charity Agency) for a few months now, and things are going well. Helping people and doing fundraisers is a lot of work, but fairly rewarding. I've decided to read all of Shakespeare's plays this year (or reread). You can follow that adventure on goodreads
if you'd like. Friend me and I'll friend you back.
I am seriously so close to finishing the novel I'm writing (my seventh) that I can taste it. It's a matter of getting into the right emotional space I think. I'm maybe twenty pages from the finale, and it's killing me a little bit. My next novel (the finale to a quartet of stories) is pushing for space in my head these days. The trials of being a writer, I swear.
Also! I changed that picture of my suit to an actual picture of me as my profile picture. I was never exactly hiding my face, (there are like four links on my page that would have led you to pictures of me) but now it's even easier to see my dumb face!
Finally, I'd like to thank all of you for supporting me and reading my writing. I'd like to thank Nullibicity
, and beltminer
for saying some truly nice things to me about my writing recently (which I appreciate more than almost anything, guys!) and chromeantennae
for being just in general awesome (also, congrats on the DD, man! You rock.)
I think I am planning to put my Weekly Standout feature back into functioning as well after a few months of hiatus. I'm slowly working on another project that I'm kinda excited about too, and I'll update you if it starts moving forward.
Thanks again guys. I hope your 2015 is off to a decent start!
