Hello stranger-friends/friend-strangers/others,

So I am at one of those points in life where: 1) the world is your oyster, and 2) you need to find a job. This means I will continue to be (mostly) MIA from dA. As usual, I do read messages. Please link anything you would like me to read. 

I have not been writing--in the creative sense, but in the work/academic sense it is constant--though I do have a few decent story ideas I hope to put into words over the next few months. I would also like to edit a couple pieces to send out for publication, but I am not sure where to go with them at the moment. This also means no NaNoWriMo for me; let me know if you are plugging along at your novel! My nascent novel idea still sits in my head, but it is rather stale when it comes to fitting into a market that is supersaturated with similar works within the genre. 

I will leave you with a quote from one of my favourite writers (and books), just to brighten things up:

"Om began to feel the acute depression that steals over every realist in the presence of an optimist." --Terry Pratchett, Small Gods.

Hope you are well, and things are good or interesting or both.

Yes, well...I am living the life right now. Work is what it is. Hope you are happy and well. And older, I suppose. Congrats.

I demand you submit something to this: [link]

That is, if you have not already done so. :love:

Well, I don't know. I mean, without a theme or genre, I don't have much to go by as far as what "best work" entails. And I am not a member.

I just submitted the two pieces I feel are actually finished. :P

What??? You're not famous yet???

Figures. This whole Internet magic and we can find the very BEST our species has to offer and even translate it (well...sort of) into something we can understand and YET?

People are still more interested in reading about Kim Kardashian's divorce.


Which reminds me. I never did find out what the 'M' stands for.
