It’s funny how quickly a month can pass when you’re really busy. Delusions of grandeur aside, plans for keeping up with the blog disappeared down a gravity well of books, papers, family commitments, and furniture building. It hasn’t been so bad to be away, really. I think deep down I’ve known for a while that I needed to begin supplementing some of the blogging for writing down some of the numerous fiction stories that swirl around in my head almost constantly. It was a break that had to be forced on me. I would probably have never taken it on my own. The monkey had gotten too big to handle on my own.
Having said that, I’ve not gone away forever. In fact, when I’m done boring you about what I’ve been doing for the past month I’m going to publish a small piece of fiction that I’ve been writing off and on since I went away. And that’ll probably be the blog’s modus operandi for the indefinite future: quick update posts about what’s happening here, peppered with short fits of fiction that loop endlessly in the maelstrom that is my brain.
(EDIT: Okay, that sounded braggy.) Suffice it to say that I am doing really well in school. I waited a long time to go back to school, and now that I have I am of a serious mind when it comes to learning and grade point average.
I’ll join my writing team in mid May to begin contributing to the screenplay for the movie that I told you all about a few months ago. I’m super excited about that, because it means experience actually working on a film!
I’m so behind when it comes to movie news, I couldn’t begin to tell you what’s happening out in the world of celluloid. Sucker Punch and Battle: Los Angeles have both come out to underwhelming reviews that haven’t made me all that excited to get out to the cinema.
I have been reading a lot more, and that is definitely a good thing. I finished Gibson’s Count Zero and couldn’t recommend it highly enough. I’m now working on Mona Lisa Overdrive with designs on a few other cyberpunk pieces to round out my experience in that genre.
And that’s about it, folks. Please, do chime in and let me know how things are going out there in cyberspace and in your own worlds. I wish you all the best, and I’ll see you on the flip side.
