To those who have enquired - yes (OH YES!) I am about to embark on a lovely luscious month-long glut of writing another first draft of a novel. This year's venue is the strange world of computer programmers - and all their bizarrely profitable poetry in binary code - also including fantasias on geodesic domes and dancing laser lights and New Mexican Medusa-hair.
Currently I am setting up this coming month's posts to encourage me along (and possibly entertain/ interest you?). I'll be letting you into it more than last year which seems appropriate with a techno-topic like this one because I'm going to be posting my outlined writing prompt of the day - so feel free to comment whatever off-topic, tangential, whimsical or contentious first thought comes to mind, I'll be looking to you for random bits of inspiration.
As for last year's novel - I have in fact been doing some revising/ rewriting/ reworking and y'know, it's not so lame as I had feared.
Even, maybe, a heartbeat there?
Maybe something perhaps living? (OH, the JOY!)
Meanwhile, and in the spirit of all things writerly: I do love Brevity this week. Would we were all so able to undercut nastiness so sweetly. And laugh at the very idea of rejection. And just laugh - you really don't want to miss this one.
And that's all in addition to Brevity's clearinghouse of calls for submissions - a few of which for whom (what? where? which?) I am readying mss as well.
