Just so I can get some writing in before work today (I didn’t end up having time to get to SAGE at all), I want to let you know how things are going to change around here a little bit. The posts you read from here on out (outside of the posting of short stories and re-prints of professional work when I have some some day), are going to be first run work. The only editing I’ll be doing is as I type, and I’ll rarely be going back to make changes unless I think: a. It unfairly involves someone else, or b. could cause trouble for someone else. Spelling and punctuation changes are going to be still covered, though. You don’t have to worry, I won’t be making this entirely unreadable from a content standpoint.
I’m going to try and be as open as I can on here without putting myself in trouble in one way or another. I may express opinions you don’t like, or use language you find offensive (though I will never use a slur). I may say some painful things, I may say some private things. I may just write about the boring things that happened to me last week. I’m trying to be better about being so much of an editor that nothing gets done, and that there’s no personality left of my writing outside of the characters or people I write about. So, that’s just what’s going to be happening. I hope you’ll stick with it now with the change. I can’t guarantee constant updates. I can’t say there won’t be more long breaks. But I will write, at least from time to time, and I’ll do it to the best of my ability. That’s all I can ask of myself, and I hope you’re willing to go along with me for the ride. Now, it’s off to work with me before I end up being too late to be early. Yes, that’s a joke. I don’t care if it makes you laugh or not.
See, I told you things would be different.
