I didn't design the puzzle, I'm just putting the pieces back together.

The rewrites for my upcoming short story collection have gone slower than preferred. However, I am happy to be making any progress. This project is not something sitting on the shelf and collecting dust, which is more than what some can say about their own work. I devote what time I have, making sure to write each day, and am letting it ripen naturally. There are other things in my life that need attention too though. Fun things, responsible adult things, etc. So much to do, so little time, as they say. Ultimately, I am pleased with how the collection is shaping up. I only hope there is an audience for it once the collection is published and available.
I really have not taken time out to do a “DJ” set for Stardazer Avenue in quite some time. Too long, probably. Those were nothing more than sessions of me playing music for fun and relaxation. But, fun and relaxation are important uses of one’s time. There has though actually been movement on my synthwave project, Space Opera. By the time it’s done, who knows if it could be considered synthwave or just a mess. I have also been in the early stages with a new Chicago post-punk, gothy band. Stay tuned.
I got engaged! That has nothing to do with my art, but exciting still. As that’s a private matter, I’ll probably be more reserved about that information as we make progress towards the BIG DAY. Suffice to say, I feel positive about this change in my life. People have already asked if I’m nervous or whatnot. I really don’t see what there is to be nervous about, as far as the subject of my soon-to-be wife. Something always goes wrong the day of a wedding, and sure I’m nervous about factors like that. But, those are all out of our control, and the best thing to do is roll with the punches.
Work, real life work that is, needs to go away; far away. We could all say that, I suppose.
I’m going to try and post a blog every week now. I’ve made that claim before though. Oh well. Let’s see how this goes – Which is what they should carve on my tombstone.
