Six months ago I wrote a post about coming back to the blog to write like a mad man and then I dropped off the face of the Earth. So what happened you ask? I decided to go back to school for the fall semester. So, sorry about that. I’m glad I did, though. The fall semester turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life.
However, life has a weird way of spinning you about and I’m unable to go back this spring, so I will be getting to the blog now.
I’ve got some good blog posts outlined that I’m going to start writing this week. I want to refocus the site and get to the core of writing and why I’m passionate about it. I’m going to try and look at more things critically including comics, video games, film, and television, and evaluate the writing in the face of my tastes and what I think can be done to improve stories overall. I want to bring something useful and constructive to the table rather than glance over those facets like I have in the past.
I also have a large project that I’m working on that will be a website that delivers short story fiction on a regular basis, hopefully weekly depending on my schedule. This site will combine a lot of my hobbies and some of my new found artistic pursuits. I’m excited about the prospects for it. I just hope I have enough time to keep up with the demands.
The new site will focus on the hobby aspects and will be the main gallery and repository for the final works of art and fiction that will go into the project. Occasionally, I will use this site, Scientific Romance, as a behind the scenes tool to give you some thoughts and experiences during the creative process.
I hope to have a regular post up by Friday… Tuesday at the latest.
