i have been really bad at updating this blog. but that in itself is telling, since i have not been writing very regularly either. add to that that i have very sudenly and unexpectedly rendered UNemployed. ok, so now i have no excuse. i have the time to write, but i didn't necessarily want to give up the day job to get it. does anyone care to sponsor an aspiring novelist for say...the next year or two?

the BN course over at Forward Motion is hanging over my head. i haven't been able to keep up, although i am still trying.to get there. i am finally realizing that my initial idea was not well thought out, nor will it make a 'breakout novel'. i am considering going back and redoing what (little) i've already worked on and start over with my new idea. this one is much more firmly realized in my head.
