Well, summer here in the northern hemisphere is fading fast. After a kind of frustrating season where it seemed I spun my wheels more than usual, some things are starting to come together.
Last week I attended my yearly ‘Con in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was a lot of fun and I met some pretty cool people. As a bonus, I sold some paperbacks and generally kicked back and did the whole literary thing.
Right now I’m working a new writing project. I’m spending a lot of time at the computer banging away on the keys of my Apple. When this project comes to fruition, it’s going to be pretty flippin’ cool. I’m excited about it, and I think that helps with the writing, a lot. It’s science fiction, of course, and it takes place in a whole new universe.
As far as I am concerned, Paul Thompson’s tale is completed for now. As interesting as it was to write, it’s time to move on to other stuff, cool stuff.
I’m busy executing that as we speak.
Wow, this whole writing thing has been a complete surprise. A pleasant surprise. If you would have asked me six years ago at my lousy firebase in nowheresville what my opinion was in regard to a retirement spent writing, I would have laughed in your face while cleaning my weapon. I didn’t think I’d make it home, let alone author three books and counting.
Well, I guess the joke’s on me, and I’m glad to laugh along.
I’ve got fresh batteries in my keyboard, and a head full of dangerous ideas.
Stay tuned. Jason.
