I would like to begin with what is happening all of 3 feet away from me: A couple, an awkward one at that, arguing.
The male- gawky and gangly. The female- a terribly attractive, Americanized Asian girl.
They can’t seem to agree on a thing.
They stand in a corner, looking at hosiery and “couple’s boardgames” until she walks briskly away. Confused, he follows her like a puppy until she reaches for a corset and suddenly raises her voice: “Thanks for callng me fat!”
He whispers a disagreement that I cannot hear. He obviously doesn’t think he has said what she seems to have heard.
“In so many words, yeah. You did.”
In so many words.
Sometimes it’s the spaces between words that tell us more.
So, maybe my not writing what I ought to be, says more than my writing?
In fact, it has been brought to my attention that I have let time slip by a bit rapidly with out working on much of anything at all. For shame.
I have about half of the problem with my lap top fixed, so I am actually planning to go home this evening and work on compiling and completing my would-be novella.
I have one final story to write, and then on to word count and submission!
I am also still accepting donations to fun my trip to Portland, OR in November to attend BizarroCon 2010.
But wouldn’t it be nice to get something in return for your kindness?
Yes, yes it would.
What if you were to receive a handy little chapbook/zine filled with some of my “Creeps” short stories, a few doodles, and more words?
Would you all be interested in that?
I’ll bet you would!
So… I’ll be working on making that little bit of magic happen for y’all.
From a place of love, I’ll create things just for you!
BizarroCon is going to be absolutely amazing!
Is it November yet?!!?
