Things going on right now…
It turns out I’m writing a book, and it’s not associated with any of the projects I’ve already discussed here. That blue notebook? The five subjects? Yes. That.
The notebook and I had a little heart-to-heart, and here is what it said:
You have wanted to write a book for a long time. You have a particular subject in which you are immensely interested. You have a reasonable level of knowledge to start with and lots of people who would be happy to help you with their information and guidance. This is your project. Run with it. In the event that you find you don’t know what you’re doing, just take a deep breath and let the subject guide you. You will get there.
You can’t argue with a notebook, mostly because it looks crazy as shit. So, I am writing a book now. However, that doesn’t negate all the pre-existing projects, including one that has completely taken me by surprise.
Apparently, I’m going to help write a game. A flash game. It’s early in the project, yet, and I don’t like to reveal too much to start, but this is the most interesting way I’ve stumbled into a project to date. Basically, a guy who creates flash games was Googling his name (a reasonable thing to do), and he came across my site because we happen to have the same last name. On discovering that I’m interested in games and writing, he decided to contact me and see if we could work together. My response? Basically: This is bizarre and surreal. Let’s do it!
In addition, I’ve got some web writing to do for Blackstar Group, something you’ll all learn more about in the near future. And to balance all the tech-related stuff, I’ve got this incredible artistic project going on with my sister (the amazing artist). Think “Exquisite Corpse.” And finally, I’ve got my two beloved blogs.
Suffice it to say, I’m extremely busy lately but also incredibly happy. In addition, I’m leaving for Chautauqua in two days. I’m not sure what the internet situation will be like when I’m out there, nor am I sure if I’ll have any energy to spare for blogging. But rest assured, I am well and happy.
Sending you all much love!
