I'm in a sharing mood tonight, so here's three pages from chapter six or seven in my perpetually unfinished novel. It's a bit of a silly excerpt, but I'm in a bit of a silly mood. It won't make much sense, but enjoy. And, of course, this material is (C) by me, so don't steal or I'll sue...

So yeah, one of the best things I've read over the past couple of years was Grant Morrison's 12-issue comic series All-Star Superman. It captured everything I loved about the medium of comics and everything I love about writing--Grant Morrison's writing and just the art of writing in general. Morrison just completed an in depth interview on the series, and once again...

So much for October. I think I held my breath for too long and it just flew by me. It's November and I've had to buy a new winter coat.
The new job is so odd, but still fascinating, and sufficiently mind-numbing enough that I hopefully won't find it too stressful. I wonder how long I'll be able to stick with...

Back to school jitters in reverse.
Tomorrow marks my the first day of my last week at my job. I'm hoping it'll breeze by while also expecting the worst.
And so I'll do my best to hold my breath and plow through it all. Just have to keep in mind how great the following week will be; a vacation at home (refuse...

Despite being unsure who I was inviting me, I accepted the invitation and made...

Meanwhile, as news spreads through of my company of my impending...

The only thing more difficult than writing a story I hope to one day share with the world is writing a story that will never exist. As I delve deeper in my novel, I continue to explore the narrative within the narrative--a fictional story within the world of the characters that I write. And for my characters to be believable, then the characters they read...

Obsessing of PKD lately. Been jumping back and forth between reading his Valis books and Grant Morrison's run on the Invisibles.
From Valis:
"the modern-day masochist does not enjoy pain; he simply can't stand being helpless."

52 was sooo darn fulfilling.

Had a break(down)through with the novel tonight. Might be able to get it back into shape after all.

self satisfaction.

So I need to milk as many connections as I can in the publishing biz.
An agent needed to have a look at some sample pages of a book we were doing today. Her email was down, so I tried faxing them to her. But she couldn't read the fax. So I ventured up to the Upper East Side to deliver them...

What kinda stuff do you write? I'm writing my first novel right now, but am still too shy to look for an agent. blush
