Life can get so busy when you’re not expecting it. Those times you are expecting it, it tends to be even busier. I had hoped to have at least one of the three short stories I’ve started, finished by last weekend. No luck.
I’ve gotten far with one though. I might try to finish it tonight. It’s a little darker than I feel right at the moment, so I might need to put it off for a day or two. Then again, who knows what my mood will be like by this evening. Another of the three ideas I know I’m going to shelf for a while. At the time I thought of it, I knew it would be a great story. I still think it is a great story, but I can’t get myself into it. So it goes back into the idea file for some later consideration. The third idea stems directly from my current job and a previous world I created. “Fantasy Farce” I call it. The first story is called Ogreman Industries. The gist of it was a job interview gone awry. I’m considering revising it and posting it here. Check back for updates. The new story, as yet untitled, will have to do with a certain job within Ogreman Industries. I laugh to myself whenever I think about it, which doesn’t necessarily mean it would be funny to anyone else.
So there you have it. A list of things to write. A novel to revise. So little time to get them all done. Whatever I do manage to complete, I will be sure to let you know.
