…and I’m back

March 30, 2011

Miss me?

Hmmm, I thought as much…

Anyway, I’ve been a bad blogger of late and haven’t done much in the way of actually posting varied or interesting things. I’m a busy and important man, damn it! Okay, so I’m rarely either of those things. However, I have been keeping rather productive away from the blog these past few weeks – at least for the most part.

I’ve been working on an essay for MadMike’sAmerica that I hope to have up tomorrow. It’s rather political in nature, though I think that’s turned out to be my bread and butter over there. So much that I’ve decided not to do posts about politics on this site any more (not that I did many). This, I think, should be a place for polite company (usually). In fact, from this point forward I won’t even be linking from the blog to the majority of the posts I do over on MadMike’s. I’ll still be adding certain essays as I see fit to my Non-Fiction page link, so you can check in there for new stuff once in a while. To get it all right away though you’ll have to either subscribe to that site, “like” the MadMike’s Facebook page (which I really encourage), or follow me on Twitter. It’s a good group they have, and I’d consider it a favor for you guys to give everybody else who writes there some exposure too.

On the fiction writing front I’ve begun to write a story which I have high hopes for. It will likely be rather short, though as a minor spoiler I’ll give you the first line that my character says:

I got into a fight with a retarded person today.

I really do feel like it will only go downhill for the poor guy from there – which, oddly, I think will be awesome. I’ll say no more for now.

Finally, in the last week or two I’ve been trying to get serious about my fundraising efforts for a 1/2 marathon I’ll be running at the end of June in Seattle. Some of you may have seen my Facebook posts about it, others may have gotten a letter in the mail. A few have contributed already, so thank you all very much; but I’ve still got a long way to go. My goal is to get to $3,800 by May 16th, all of which (after paying my way to Seattle) will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. However, I’m hoping by Sunday I can get to at least 10% of my goal. I only need $205 to get there. So any money that anyone can give, even a little, would be a huge help. Just head over to my fundraising website to donate.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. I’ll be writing more here soon though, so stay tuned.
