Habitually Mandated Blog Update? "Not So Fast My Friend!"
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 6:43 PM
Yes, with the immortal words of Lee Corso, I tell you I intend to impart several points of interest.

First and most importantly, I got published again! HUZZAH! I got the acceptance letter today for another one of my scifi flash pieces. It will be featured on Every Day Fiction either next month or the month after. I will definitely keep everyone updated on this. I'm very excited to have another one of my pieces on their highly successful web-zine. The last one I had with them sparked a torrent of comments from their readers.

The second bit of news is that I am almost done with the second draft of my novel. I know, better news, real news, would have been that I am done with the second draft, but that's just not the case. With the new job and the onset of football season (Go Bucs! FREEMAN FREEMAN. C'mon Seminoles, don't do me like that....) I'm just a very busy man. I'm a very happy busy man, but writing is very much on the side for the moment. Not that not I'm not making some progress. I am. Only four more chapters to go. Ish. I finished one just the other night. I'm way behind schedule, I know. The chapter a week thing is just out the window at this point, but I am getting one day every two weeks and I'm trying to pick up the pace. I'd to have it done by Halloween so I can spend November and December on some short stories, but I can't make any promises. Not to my readers or myself. It'll happen in its own time. It's just nice to know that I'm still making some progress elsewhere. I definitely need to write some more flash stories, because I'm pretty much out-of-stock. Now that's a good feeling.

Until next time, I'm Eric and I'm an unpublished author.
