Hey! How are ya?! I haven’t blogged in a while, have I?
I got my first rejection today for my fantasy short story Oberon’s Paradise, bringing the rejection count of ’08 to … 1. Kinda got a late start. Anyway, I’ve got plenty of other publishers to submit it to and collect rejections from.
I finished writing another story called No One Was Abendsen, but it has a sort of ambiguous tragic ending, which I don’t feel I should change, but I’m not sure anyone else would like it, so I’m reluctant to do anything with it. Maybe I’ll search for some critiques on the writing style itself, but not try to get it published.
I’m planning out another story now… I don’t know enough about it yet to say much, but the premise excites me.
In other news, do you like my sketch of Sweeney Todd? Not bad for me, says I.
In other news, I started reading Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series with Wizard’s First Rule. I think the story is quite engaging, but the style of writing is bland for my tastes. Makes for easy reading though. And… whew… it’s a long book! 820 pages.
Music wise, I’m working on an album, which is about 1/6th complete. Probably won’t be finished for a while, but I’m very pleased with what I have so far. 🙂
