What's Up?

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.

It was ok.


I'm going to be here for now, as you may have seen. FB is just too much of a time suck.

Marguerite, day before Thanksgiving visit to see my dad was less-than-good. Put a damper on my mood, to be sure.

Did notice re: FB and here.

I'll be here as well. I probably should post an update, but this Thanksgiving has been all about figuring some things about as I embark on another course correction.

I hope the change works out for you.

It is getting quieter in here, but...yeah, there's always FB. :)

Good to see you in here though!

Good to be seen, and I'm glad that the writing and editing and everything else are going swimmingly for you.
