something completely different...

i haven't been blogging much 'round here lately. perhaps some of you think that's a good thing. you may just be right, i dunno -- given what i think about the sick culture i live in; the inanity of politicians campaigning for an election that is still nineteen months away; my acute case of liberal outrage fatigue in the face of one awol administration scandal after another that, had bill clinton been this mendacious, would have ushered in the guillotine as an appropriate method of execution; a deep suspicion of the technology known as youtube that i have unwillingly developed; and that skippy and i disagree about american idol (though, thank goodness, neither of us have any use for phil spector, if for radically different reasons), me shutting up for a while seems pretty sensible.

so i've turned my blogging attention elsewhere. there's this fictional story, novel, novella, oh hell if i know exactly what it is, that i've been tinkering with off and on for several years. this slippery, shapeshifting mother is titled "ward of the earth, prisoner of the sun." i've finally dried my hands down enough to try and get a grip on it, since i'm close to fed up with everything else. chapter one is rather short. but for the first time, i've settled on a chapter one variation that i think suits this story.

i think i want to be a writer when i grow up, but i don't really know. i'm only 36...

You're an old man. I won't be 36 for more than a month.
