Back to the Writing

…And I’m back. Just wanted to do a little something before the old blog gets too rickety. Well, I’ve had some good cider, completed a massive road trip from the East coast out to New Mexico (with a pit stop in Memphis!) and now I’m back. barton-fink-6

….And I’m feeling a bit like Barton Fink  in this scene. A bit worn and stretched thin. After all, we’re entering one of the busiest times of the year.

But here’s the good thing: I’m off this weekend to write. I’ll be working on the 3rd draft of my new story, “The Number Thief.” I’ve been reading through the printouts of the manuscript and the story looks solid: tight plotting, compelling characters (in the two leads, at least) and some great moments along the way. So, it looks like I should have a third draft done in no time…Then it’s onto finalizing it and starting to submit the piece.

Other than that, I have a few other works done and I’m submitting those. No word yet on whether the editors like them, but I’m out there playing the game of submission and rejection.

Alright, that’s all for now. Life—and writing—call. See you next time.
