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.
- I’ve finished the draft of “Lord Fluffy Bottom Destroys the World” and tossed that on the to-edit pile.
- 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.
- 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.
