Trying in desperation to turn some aspects of life around. Some of you know what we’ve been going through at home, and you know it isn’t easy. I’m overcommitted at the basics of life, and have a fe too many people dependent on me for a few too many things. This leaves me with very little ability to actually live a full and rewarding life.
I’m gaining traction on writing again, and think I’ve learned a lot of lessons that will push me over the top in some of the doubts I’ve had on my main projects. These doubts were at the granular level of the projects, which really aren’t the levels to get stuck on, but in the end, the granular level decisions I’ve made have really helped me push forward and make what I feel is a much better end result.
I’m up on etsy with some little things, resin cast trilobite and ammonite pins, a robotic crawling trilobite, and more soon. Some bigger build projects as well. I’m helping on props and set for Dr. Seussical the musical over the summer (which is going to be tremendous fun), and helping on Lichtenberg runs. May even work on some guitars…
I’m also redoing my scale book for bass and will have it up at amazon and iTunes in electronic format pretty soon.
And so there’s a few things I’m pondering. I’d like to start a spec lit and geekery web site like io9 or think geek, and many other things in that line. I’d need writers and editors, though, to help kick it off. I’d also really like to do a weird fiction podcast, and would love a few collaborators to get it moving.
Other than that, I’ll break out of this misery soon. Almost there.
