Hello April. We meet again!
My short story No One Was Abendsen has now been critiqued quite a good many times and I’ve gotten a lot of good and helpful feedback, so hopefully this weekend I’ll be working on a final draft, and on Monday or Tuesday I’ll send it out to a publisher. Wish me luck!
Then I need to work on another draft of my novelette Dreamgiver and hopefully try to get some more critiques of that before working on a final draft.
Currently, what moments I can spare for fiction writing I’ve been putting into my novel on textnovel called Sorcerer, which somebody recently commented on saying:
fantastic! Waiting for the rest, let’s keep ’em coming
Why thank you! 🙂 It’s an exciting story to write so far. It’s mostly dialog; I’m keeping descriptions to a bare minimum. If I ever finish it, I might go back and embellish it a bit, but maybe not… the lack of descriptions and details really keeps it fast paced I think, but perhaps at the expense of the readers’ immersion. Oh well, I’m keeping details and descriptions really light for now.
On textnovel I use a penname: Fineas Blinn. The Fineas comes from the last syllable of my last name and mixed letters from my first name. Blinn I just made up out of nowhere because I think it sort of goes with the rhythm and sound of Fineas. Then I got to thinkin’, hmmm, Fineas Blinn sounds a bit more catchy and memorable than Sean Patrick Hannifin, doesn’t it? Maybe I’ll try using Fineas Blinn as a penname when I submit No One Was Abendsen to publishers. Not sure yet, but it’s tempting…
There is nothing else I really have to say right now… I need to get back to doing some musical things here soon…
