Another, "oh yeah I have a profile here, huh!" update.
Book has now sold copies and gotten good reviews. Author now, not just 'writer'. -go me! :-)
For those who wonder why I've been on here so long, I'm not "hunting". This is more a "can't win the lotto if I'm not buying a ticket" deal than anything else. I don't make any first contacts, here or elsewhere. I'm happily single, but realize the wonderful side of being in a relationship as well. Now back to your regularly scheduled surfing. :-)
Long while since I updated here. Book is published. It's up on smashwords as "After the Burning: Princess", and can be found via goodreads, sony, kobo and other places. Now back to working on the next one. :-)
Surfing profiles the last couple days. A lotta folks on here would NOT survive a zombie apocalypse. Just sayin'.
So I'm still smoke free since I wrote the bit below this back in July. Yes e-cigs work. Took a writing break for awhile, but ramping that back up again. I guess I'm a winter writer. The world is pretty much the same as the other stuff in here from my perspective at this point. Still driving people from one place to another in the taxi...which has turned out to be a very good fit for me. Still an objectivist.
Micro tiny update to this: I'm FINALLY completely smoke free thanks to e-cigarettes. (not the cheezy kind in the malls, rather the good kits you have to get online. altsmoke.com would be a good place to check out the gear). It was so easy to switch I almost feel guilty about it. -heh heh.)
It continually boggles my mind how this site matches folks up. So to be perfectly clear:
I'm a libertarian / Objectivist. Don't know what that means? It means that I think the republican party is only slightly less manky than the socialist libtard democratic party. .
So if you think that poppa government should take care of everybody... if you think global warming is actual science and not a political grab for yet more control over YOUR life... if you think capitalism is bad...I am soooo not your guy. Now back to our regularly scheduled profile
Time to update this thing a bit.
Sometimes writing takes longer than the writer happily guesses at. Such is the way of the evil muse who lives in my closet and drinks all my booze. sigh.
1-24-10 - Finished the first draft. Now to drag out the red pen and the editing hat!
For the last two months I've gone and tossed the IT career in the bucket. My focus is on my writing, so I decided to do something I enjoyed that did NOT involve brain melt downs each day. So out came a piece of paper and I jotted down the things I like to do best that don't involve computers. Driving and talking to folks came to the top....so I went out, took the tests, filled out the paperwork (tons of it) and got my limo license. More paperwork and such and now I'm driving a taxi for Metro here in Denver. Not only a good decision for the writing, it is an actual pleasure (most of the time) driving folks about. (So see the new pic I uploaded for my new "keep the roof over the head whilst I create" job.) --it also is about as "gone Galt" as it gets. :-D
Finished the 2nd revision pass of the novel. 1824 pages of corrections/red penning and headaches. Gawds I love it! :-D
Now if only my test readers agree...
Other than that, an it geek, tech, and all that goes along with that. (That's not ALL of what/who I am, but better up front with what jazzes me, eh?)
I am outgoing, intelligent, and single and not unhappy about life at this point. :-)
