Been too long, but the holidays have me catching up on sleep/rest and family time along with reading and writing time. So, I finally began reading As I Lay Dying and am steadily re-admiring Faulkner's use of rolling POV's. After that, I've got Absalom, Abasalom! on deck and am awaiting some light/fun fare in John Ringo's Under a Graveyard Sky.
Although the writing is up and down as I tool around on the novels and short stories and poetry, I'm still *writing*. And it's been nice the people who've supported the dropping of Old Souls and the Grammar of Their Wanderings. While I'm waiting for suggested revisions/edits from my agent re: the Southern Arthuriana novel, the building of the character-centric playlists began in earnest a few days ago. Fun stuff for getting my head and heart back in those gears. Still got some decisions to make on major cuts and major re-introductions of issues/characters in Footpaths of Small Town Gods, the other Fogle County novel, but that's what the darling-killing is for anyhow.
The short story, "Let Baser Things Devise," swings back in an earlier direction in terms of its being a love story, but now between the uplifted chimp protag and . . . a robot. Just go with it.
From the lurking I've been doing on LJ lately, things seem quieter as the halls of this social media site grow thinner, but virtually everyone here I follow on FB anyhow although every now and then I find some gems of information or reviews of X, Y, or Z here.
Hope your Thanksgiving was anywhere between okay to better than average.
