Well, I had this great idea for my 200th post, but between the technical difficulty in my present surroundings and the vain, self-image (I’m too fat right now to video tape consciously) concerns, I had to put that on hold.
But it has been a few months since there has been much substance on here, which I hope to change and wanted to get started on that.
- My Screen Burn column over at InveterateMediaJunkies.com is doing well. I have been working on a massive one recently that will be split up into weekly installments. I also started a Twitter account for it so that my instant reactions and opinions on TV and related news is separate from my regular Twitter feed. Please follow if you are enjoying the column.
- I’m getting geared up to go back to Seton Hill in June. I’ve been working on notes for the three projects I talked about before. I stayed up Thursday night trying to get a draft of “Witches’ Brooms” ready to send out for the critique session during the Residency. I went backed an looked at all the notes people have given me during its life time. It was hard since there have been three versions of it. I’m not expecting this to be the last one. This is the first story I’ve written that has a female protagonist. I’ve always been hesitant to write women, but that is also why I want this story scrutinized as much as I can.
- In that last post, I talked about doing a Mass Effect storyline post. I had planned on it, but was asked to write something for IMJ. But since that hasn’t gone up, I’m going to post it here later in the month. Granted, it’s been out a while and most people have talked about it. but with the “ending explanation” DLC coming out this summer, I’m sure the discussion will pick back up. In fact, I might wait till that comes out before I post.
- Recently, I have returned to art. I really haven’t had a lot of time for it since high school, but I finally have time to play around with Procreate for traditional art and Bryce 7 for 3D abstract art. I’ll start posting my creations here and on my new Pinterest account. Now, these are not masterpieces, just some fun I that is different from writing or music. Here are two examples:
And there will be more returning features coming back over the months including: Monthly Music, Book Journey, and Vulgar Argot. Also, I have changed the background and header here, these are just temporary. I want freshen up the site, but haven’t had the time to sit down and make new designs. That is on my plate as well. It may even feature some the art work I’ll be posting here.
It’s kinda crazy that I’m at 200 posts in just under 4 years. Thank you all for coming by! And feel free to send suggestions of what you want to see. Who knows, a good one may result in a prize!
