Still Here, Still Writing

August 08, 2011 | 1 Minute Read

I could give you a ton of reasons why I haven’t written here in over a month. I could tell you my real life issues–new job, looking for new housing–but that isn’t really it. I could’ve told you I stopped writing–a bald-faced lie if there ever was one. Only slightly less bald-faced than saying I entered a long-term, committed relationship. I could also blame technology issues, which is, actually, one reason. But not the major one.

No, the real reason is what to write. I’ve been thinking alot, recently, about the debt debate and US politics, and so I’ve been blogging at United Liberty where I can. In terms of fiction, I’ve been debatingwhich of my favorite ideas I want to tackle. Derelict spacecraft? Spacesteading libertarians beset by socialist stormtroopers? Giant robots? (“Janzer” is in limbo, unfortunately.) What about when you think you see something out the corner of your eye but there isn’t anything there? Or what about crazy dreams that make no sense: do they have their own little village they live in?

Naturally, not all of these ideas are novel. (Har har. I kill myself.) But these are ideas I’ve had in my head and just never gotten out. Maybe now I should. At the very least, if I printed them and then burned them, I could have both fantastic art and lower heating bills at the same time! Stay tuned.
