Good Day fellow wanderers.. welcome to the junk drawer.
As I am not as big a fan as most, on this day, the 4th of May, I will say only this. May the Schwartz be with you. Okay, now that I have had my Brooksian Moment and chuckled for the past few minutes, let us run down the past month in ye olde blog.
The techno-tyke had a blast doing the egg hunt, and has been busy planting his garden and painting his rocket ship bird houses. We have been having a bunch o' fun playing with trains and cars and the like. Month two into the layoff and we are still having fun, playing.
Speaking of which, I have been trying my hand at baking, with mixed results so far. Oh it is all edible and what not, just this latest project of making a cake look like a castle has been.. challenging. Oh yeah, why just make a pan of brownies when I can tackle a castle shaped cake? We'll have to do some investigating and a few posts on cooking. The quest continues.
I read a lot of good short fiction, all purchased via Amazon or Smashwords and did a bunch of reviews. Man there was some good stuff there, I look forward to more. I also got to read a good murder mystery, find another new author I can follow around and pester for more good stories. Good news is, there are I believe seven more novels to consume, and I believe more on the way.
I also collected a few rejection slips and found some new markets to explore. I have two anthologies squarely in my sights and I am looking forward to both. I am also debating selling my own stuff, self publish some stuff. I am still submitting, but I am intrigued by the idea of doing my own thing. I think I will, I just have decide what and when. I think I'll do both, submit and self publish.
Last but not least, I joined The Creative Alliance. It has been a blast so far and a real opportunity to connect with like minded individuals on a creative level. I have met some new folks and have had the opportunity to experience some really great, new stuff. All good, and I am looking forward to even more cool things, coming out of TCA.
All and all, a busy month in the blog and in my own little writing corner. I am sure this month will be more of the same, maybe more so. Have towel, will wander.
