Moving On

So last night I did something I thought I wasn't going to do: I started writing Deadliest Cachalot again. Yes, I was supremely bummed by my recent computer woes, but continual whining isn't going to accomplish a damn thing, so I decided to move on. It's either that or stew in self pity for weeks as an excuse to not write anything. I don't think so. I am determined to write that story again and make it better than it was the first time. The same with The Transcendental Man.

I did get a bit of good news last night. The Other Half looked through the files on her computer and found unrevised versions of The Madness in Their Eyes, Pruritus Maximus, On Thin Ice and the execrable The Architects of Entropy. So I'll probably re-revise a couple of those and get them subbed again.

Proving that I am a shameless copycat at times, I added a submission tracker gadget to the right column, the idea provided by Jamie Eyberg.

Best to be back in the proverbial saddle again. Glad The Other Half found some bits and pieces.

Not real original. I saw it on someone else's website and now I can't remember who. Glad you found some bits on the better half's computer. Always good news to have something to go off of.

Best attitude to have, man. Keep going, no matter what.

After my last computer died I started to send my stories to my hotmail account for safekeeping.

Oh, good! The rewritten stories will undoubtedly be better than their originals. Think of this as a positive outcome!
