i think it's good
I wrote another short story today. (short, hell... it's 28 pages long) It's about a young man in high school who is scared shitless to ask a girl out for the Junior Prom. Yeah, it's semi-autobiographical, because wimmen once scared the shit out of ME, but I had a good time writing that story. I remembered a lot of my youth in the process.
I was proud of the story when I finished it. It's funny, but it's altogether TRUE, too. I believe that it may sell. Maybe I'll publish an excerpt or two here on my page. Or maybe not. That story really needs to be read from start to finish to appreciate it correctly.
I've been doing a lot of writing off the blog lately. I can't afford to make any more money this year, but I've got plenty of stuff to send off next year. Five short stories, seven magazine articles and an almost-finished novel. I've ALWAYS wanted to write for a living and now I have the chance to do it. So, I write every day.
Not everything I write shows up here.
