Getting busy with my life...

There comes a time I think, that you have to seize your life by the short ones and pull it kicking and screaming into a better place, consequences be damned. Unfortunately, when you're an aspiring writer, that time tends to always be now.

I haven't posted in the past few days because of this phenomenon.

Those of you that know me know that I am a big believer in the "Hemmingway" school of writing... that you should never pass up life experience, because it's the life you lead that will make the lives you write all the more richer for your experiences. For the past few days, I think Ernest would be proud of me. I'm starting to realize that the older I get, the less I want to lead a conventional life anyway... I know there are those of you out there that want the suburban 2.5 kids, job and life security thing out of life, but that life just ain't me and i doubt it ever will be.

Let's see... right now, I imagine there are equal amounts of head scratching and knowing nods going on on the other side of the monitor... so, maybe I should elaborate. I blew off work for the weekend and went for a little ride. The ride involved shipwrecks, hurricanes, movies, comic books, girls, slave auctions, and Klingons. Amid this chaos, I could glimpse the life I really want strecthed out in front of me... just waiting for me to step up to the plate.

And that is just the very tip of the iceberg, so to speak.

On the bad side, paying the phone bill this month may be tricky. On the good side, I have blog and cartoon material for months.

*knowing nod* from NY.

You know how I feel about the 2.5 kids/house/security thing. :)

Working on stepping up to my own plate.

Spoken from the heart! Well done. I empathize completely. You are not alone.

Go to CoastCon, did you?

By the way, our first 1.0 children is going to be a boy.

that's what most people say when they realise all hope is lost, and by the way sucked in about the phone bill lol
