Well, there hasn’t been an update in a while… and there hasn’t been much in the way of production in a while. I’ve been positively bristling with ideas, but the ideas have not really fleshed themselves out into actual stories. The seem to lack ‘handles’ as I have red Stephen King describe them in the introduction to one of his short stories in the anthology “Bazaar of Bad Dreams” which I’m reading on my kindle these days.
I’ve finished Andy McDermott’s “The Tomb of Hercules“. I had a good experience with that and “The Hunt for Atlantis“, so I’ve ordered his “The Secret of Excalibur“. In the meantime I’ll catch up on my Clive Cussler backlog, starting with “The Pharaoh’s Secret“.
And I’ve been catching up on some other reading… namely the Writer’s Digest magazine from March /April. There’s an article on writing better flash fiction, and that may be a good solution for some of these ideas that may not have a short story length plot, but still may be a good tale to tell and to read.
Ah, I’ll file that under #MakeItSo; lets see what comes of it this week!
