I know that not much has been going on with my writing as of late. For this I want to apologise to everyone. I have been busy and moody, dealing with a host of Life's problems. The biggest one had centered on my situation at the radio station I worked at for 13 years. I was not sure what would happen after the sale actually happened. The winds are shifting my sailboat as I now know my last night onair at 90.5 WDUQ is going to be the 28th into the 29th of June. I am trying to find a radio gig somewhere in the area now. I hope I hear something soon.
In the last 45 days I also managed to totally trash my computer. I lost everything, including all my stories. It is taking some work, but things are getting recovered, so I will have all my current writing back. I thought some of it would be lost to the echoes of time, but happily that is not the case.
I have been struggling through a rewrite as well. A story I have high hopes for has been frustrating me beyond the capacity to reason. People gave me a variety of responses on it, all of them questioning my sanity and sentence structure. Finally, I called on the ultimate authority in help: My old English teacher. I think he has set me right, it is just taking time.
In short I am still here. The factory of my imagination has been offline for a bit. But with the wind changing directions and things finally resolving, I will be back to my usual. New writing will appear soon. I do have a story, 'One Last Day' due for publication in July, both online and in print.
Now, to avoid those clowns in the clean white coats...
