Last week was a good writing week, so of course this week was not. But actually this was not unexpected. In fact, I’d anticipated being busy this week. That’s why I gave myself 14 weeks off this year, more than I had expected to use last year (though less than what I actually used). What’s more, thus is the same reason I haven’t been able to reply to comments on last week’s post. Don’t worry, I’ll get to those soon.

I’m very eager to be writing right now. As I mentioned last week I’m itching to dive back into “Book of M”. Plus there’s the 3 “Book of M” short stories I’ve been thinking about. I’d like to write a little explore the ideas I have for those, even if I don’t dive into writing the stories themselves. But life has other immediate plans for me, and it’s a doozy.

So, while a part of me wants to be writing I don’t really mind the break. I’ve got enough to keep me occupied for now. Still, I do hope I can get back into it soon enough.

In other completely unrelated-to-writing news, I’ve joined the twenty-first century… I recently got a new smart phone. I have to say I love my new phone. Most of this post was composed on it, parts of it even taken by dictation. It’s like something out of classic sci-fi.

The future is awesome.  I’m glad I live there, now.

So, how about you? How was your week, in writing, in life, or whatever?

  1. Oooh shiny new smartphone! 🙂 My writing has been going slowly. I’m still in the story incubation phase. I’ve got the general shape of a story in mind, but there are still a lot of holes. Kind of hesitant to just jump in and write. This story’s going to be different, for sure.

  2. I got my first smart phone, on which I’m writing this, after Hurricane Sandy knocked out my Internet for 10 days. I have the cheapest voice plan and the most expensive data plan. I get unnerved when the phone rings because I forget it even does that. 🙂

    • Well I hardly use my phone at all either, mostly because I have very few people to call… Except Dear Wife, whom I probably call nearly every day. We were able to get smartphones thanks to a fortuitous set of family circumstances that made it almost as cheap to have a data plan as it was to have voice and text alone. Score one for us! Still, we’re trying to be very judicious with our data use.
