Sweet Progress

The title of this post would have been so ridiculously appropriate if I had worked on “Creme Brulee: A Love Story.” I did not, although I’ve been planning on it for days.


HOWEVER!!! Happily, I managed to write a substantial chunk of the Helen story today – that is, a substantial chunk compared to what I usually get done, not in terms of the entire story. I wrote around two pages, which is more than I usually write in a week, these days…

As a result, I have enough to post the next section of Chapter 2, as soon as I’ve read it over. As I seem to be noting continuously, i.e. annoyingly, I’m only doing bare minimum editing, if that, at this time, so if things are far from perfect in these blog posts, that’s how I intend it to be.

I probably could have just posted the pages of the story, without this separate lead-in post, but I hope you appreciate the sense of anticipation when waiting for a promised story or part of a story. Look for another part of Chapter 2 before the end of the week!

What to Expect

I haven’t been doing much writing lately, although I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about numerous ideas for stories and microfiction pieces. Things have been rather crazy the past few weeks, but they should be far more settled now – so I should be getting more onto the page, instead of having to settle for writing in my head. Once I’ve had a chance to do so, perhaps I will be able to post things like:

A “collection” of microfictions, the title having something to do with Garden.

A story in fantastic imagery from the point of view of a young homeless woman.

More about the Helen of Troy novel.

And, I’m sure, quite a bit more.
