Plugging Away

It’s been a month since my last post, and things have happened. I’ll number them, though the number doesn’t matter so much. 

  1. I’ve finished the draft of “Lord Fluffy Bottom Destroys the World” and tossed that on the to-edit pile.
  2. Likewise with another story with the working title “But Daddy, I Love You.” That one’s a horror story I never intended to write. But I did write it, so there it is. That’s also on the to-edit pile. 
  3. I’ve joined a writer’s group, and that’s what most of this blog post will be about.

I submitted “Million Dollar Idea,” and got some really good feedback. Overall, the response was positive though you can’t please everyone. Though I knew I was writing a dystopian story with that one, a few of the people suggested I read Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 when they found out I hadn’t — I know! I don’t have any clue how I passed high school English. First of all, F451 is a fantastic book. If you haven’t read it, go read it. Right now. It’s short. Stop complaining and go do it. I’ll wait. 

Anyway, I read it, like I said, and I can see some valid comparisons there. So that one’s going on the to-edit pile as well. 

And lastly, I’ve sold a story! Well, actually, I did that a month ago, but I didn’t announce it here. More details to come.
