I’m working on a non-fiction book, finishing up my final project for Music Theory, and noodling with songs, but that’s about it. I find myself with no short story in the works, and no novel that I’m really making any progress on. And I haven’t edited any video in weeks, although I have a fair amount of raw footage.
I hope that will change soon after the boys are back in school. My wife has a vacation that week, and we’re planning a couple of inspiration trips, to inspire her painting and my writing. With luck, I’ll be able to put my head down in the second week of September and make some real progress.
I’m trying not to make excuses, though; I am still doing my best to sit at the keyboard and write (or do it on my phone while boys are at the beach), and I’ve been at the piano daily playing around with chord progressions (between head-spinning sessions of analysis of the score that the Music Theory class gave me to work on). So even while I am not making much in the way of word counts, I am cooking up a few things, letting them simmer—or ferment as the case may be—so that I can turn them into something delicious when the time comes.
You’ll have to let me know if they are to your taste. Don’t forget to check out my existing work and comment, rate, review, and email me with feedback. Positive or negative, I want to hear from you!
