Not Enough Time in the Day

Wow, has it really been a month since my last post? Oh, how time flies. For those of you who wonder what it's like to be a fledgling writer, here's an exercise you can do at home:

1. Check mail.
2. Check e-mail.
3. Repeat.

That pretty much covers it. Well, that and the writing. And the worst part of the whole process is not knowing whether you're rooting for a response or not. Talk about an optimism/pessimism litmus test.

In other news, I'm working on a new short story, tentatively titled The World Behind. It's a little longer than my previous attempts, and I can't seem to find enough alone-time in front of the computer to get it done. Which sucks, because it just might be the best thing I've ever written. I'm psyched to get it out.

Of course, it could be crap.

Stay tuned, folks. I have a feeling things are just starting to get interesting.
