Still Alive…?

July 8, 2013

(Because even though I’ve never played Portal, I frickin’ love that song…)

The answer to the titular question is: Yes.

In the month since my last non-writing update, we’ve had Father’s Day (a huge success).  And Independence Day (aka the Fourth of July, the national patriotic holiday of my nation of birth, which is traditionally accompanied by both barbecue and pyrotechnics but this year not, for many good reasons, namely several metric tonnes of inconvenient, inconsiderate, and ill-timed precipitation… so… yeah, actually not that hard to overstate my satisfaction, but still we had a good holiday in spite of the rain).

What I haven’t done in the intervening space of time: any fiction writing whatsoever.

What I have done: read a book, pretty much from start to finish.  (I finished one behemoth of a book on June 19th.  Finished the next book in my queue on July 5th, roughly half of which I read during the holiday.)

I could say a lot more about any of the above-mentioned things, but… I don’t actually have enough time to say it.  Point of fact, I’ve got several half-finished or barely-outlined drafts of blog posts sitting around here that I just don’t have the time to finish and post.  So you get this instead.

Hope your writing time is more productive than mine!

    Glad to know you’re still okay! I really need to start reading more too. That is not a negligible accomplishment. 🙂

      Thanks! Yeah, reading has been good, mainly because (unlike writing, for me) I can do out in 15 minute bursts.

    When I saw the title of your post in my RSS reader, the song immediately came to mind, not knowing you WERE actually referencing it. Awesome!

    Oh, and do play Portal. 🙂

      I want to. A lot. I hope to get to eventually. But I need two other things first: a gaming rig, and enough free time to comfortably sleep and write and still have some left over for gaming…

        Haha! Don’t worry, I know the feeling. 🙂 Mind you, Portal 1 does not require that much hardware, unless your computer is older than 5 years,

        Good luck with everything!

        Which, sadly, it is… (a new one is nowhere near the horizon either)
