Things are looking up again, at least as far as writing goes, in the real world, not so much, but I won’t burden you with that here.   The Parable of the Shadow joins the ranks of shorts with an expected publication date in March.  I am still working steadily on rewrites and/or minor edits of my stories that are still homeless.  Last night, in the shower, it occurred to me that “Too Much Love” was just too silly and pretentious, Simon Cowell might even say self-indulgent.  In its place, a much more heart-felt and beautiful love story “Like a Desert Summer Rain” has emerged and has commanded my attention for at least the next few days.

I was going to do a Movie Review of Ramona and Beezus, which was by far the best movie I’ve seen in the last few weeks, but I will wait for next weekend and see if I’m in the mood to write properly then.  A number of my good friends from the writing community have announcements and I will start sharing them over the course of the next few posts.

It appears that my stories grow longer with every edit.  I don’t know whether that means I am becoming a better writer or simply more full of myself.  At any rate, hopefully it means I will have a quality novel to share with you shortly.  Thank you to those who encourage me every day and those inspire me by their own writing.  Keep writing my friends!
