Late again. But better than yesterday’s nothing, I suppose. Yeah, sorry about that. It was much too late to get anything done by the time I started. My own fault, really. I should really look in kicking the Siren in the face again next time. Several of them actually… But, what’s done is done.
Most of the writing these days has been on my thesis, if you can even call it writing anymore. I’m in the process of cutting down the word count until it reaches one that is within the allowed limits. It’s not fun, breaking down carefully written work like that, but what needs to be done needs to be done. And as a writer, it probably won’t be the last time I’ll have to do such a thing. At least the end really comes closer and closer.
But yeah, I suppose a better description would probably be that most of the work and time these days is going into the thesis. Aside from that I’ve of course working on The Artist’s Tale, which is a lot of fun and will be continued shortly, as well as some other poetic projects in the background. I’ve also been gathering some ideas for The Book. Aside from Strange Little Girls, the tyrant story and some already existing works and ideas I have another (probably short) story in mind (currently) called Silent Knight. It’s more serious than the obvious semi-intentional pun might make it seem. And that’s all I’m going to say about it for now. ^_~ Let’s hope it’ll go beyond the mind and won’t suffer the fate of countless other story ideas…
I’m also going to start my second biggest poetic challenge soon: I’ll be taking on the Shakespearean sonnet. Yep, I’m going there! Its contents, currently in mental making, and subject are big and important enough to me I figured I’d go all out for this one. It’s really out of my comfort zone, but I think that’s part of the thrill. Should be interesting.
And that’s it for today. There’s no series to watch tomorrow and I’m on my guard against the Sirenical temptations that seek to keep me from writing, so hopefully I’ll actually be able to put out some actual content again then. For now, good night and sweet dreams!
