Writing Update: July/August

Still working on tne twelve short stories target for the year.
Either finished or in a late-stage draft:
– “The Tape”
– “Buckets”
– “Babel”
– “The Twelve Times I Drank Too Much”
– “Lift Story”
– “The Apotheosis of Melvin Rameka”
Notes ‘n’ scratchings ‘n’ failed drafts:
– “Walking story”
– “Confession”
– “The Big Drive”
In other words, got a long ways to go yet. But I’m learning a lot about short stories, so that’s good.
“The Beast” comic keeps on keeping on, looking handsome. Re-writing dialogue to best fit a drawn page is a whole new writing skill. Awesome though.
“Affair of the Diamond Necklace” was performed and went well. Sweet.
I’m going to be recording some decade-old short fiction soon, for Dan’s podcast version of “Urban Driftwood“. Some of it will be tricky…
A couple other small Sekret Projects too but nothing particularly dramatic. No movement on Ron the Body.

    I count that as at least 9 attempts in 8 months… which seems like quite an achievement to me… I can’t wait to read some of them!!!

    For someone who keeps himself so busy in so many fields, I admire the hell out of your writing discipline and ability. Nice work!
