Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. That’s mainly because life has been very, very busy.
I’ve had little time to write over the summer — certainly not as much time as I’d like to have had. But I did get the NIS story finished, and folks have been emailing me to say they like it. So if you haven’t had a chance to give it a try, but still want some of the Avatar characters, try it on for size.
I’m of two minds about continuing the main Avatar book once I’ve posted all if the NIS story. I’m trying to do some more main stream writing, and I just don’t have the time to devote to it right now. Plus, I was recently contacted by someone to do some custom writing, and while that’s fun, and I do make money on it, it takes up a lot of time. Plus, I’m being paid, so I can’t blow it off 🙂
Anyway, in a diametrically opposed set of thoughts and feelings, posting once every two weeks is too slow! But I don’t want to end up running out of prepared material, and certainly, since NIS is finished (although not edited) once I get it all edited, perhaps I can go to once a week. For the NIS story, any way.
But back to Avatar, the main thread. There’s just so much to write that it sometimes seems overwhelming. Especially when combined with a full time job that has a tendency to eat my brain *and* trying to get something mainstream together for the “masses” (hey, don’t laugh, they pay better than YOU do — provided anything ever gets published (grin).)
Also, there’s a pay site that might be interested in my BDSM work. Naturally, they don’t pay as well as “real” writing, but I might give that a try as well. I often wonder, why people would pay for this stuff when you can get it for free. Plus there’s always the uninvited thought: What if I write something for pay, and no one buys it?
Ah well, the joys of being insecure.
And finally, I like your emails. They’re sort of the inspiration to continue to write some of this stuff. So send ’em if ya feel like writing. I do try to write back, and if I’ve missed anyone, I apologize.
And REALLY finally, tomorrow night Serenity opens. If you’ve never watched Firefly (and you’re running out of time, since there’s about 15 hours of the show to watch), GO SEE THE MOVIE ANYWAY. It’s a fun romp with some hot chicks (no sex though…) and really great characters. So it’s a good movie to watch even if you haven’t fallen in love with Firefly.
Oh, and I’ll be posting the next NIS tonight, so keep an eye out for it.
