Long day out, spent most of it at the coffee shop, forcing myself to write the dialog needed to get the rewrite of the second novel done. I didn’t realize that rewriting all that destroyed copy, would sour my motivation to write this series. Shoot me.
It’s very hard dealing with people who want to know if
- A) I’m still writing comics/BL
- B) why aren’t you writing comics/BL
- C) where’s Caroline, Laura, etc and are they still drawing
- D) you never blog anymore about BL, do you hate it now?
I’m writing prose-fiction, working on my first series of novels, and despite the computer set-back (which lost me my 47 North contract) it’s slow going. Comics is out of the question for me, because as a writer of comics, I can’t afford to produce a title on my own. I can’t speak for Caroline, only that I blew it with her for being a raving egotistical asshole that crossed too many personal lines. As for Laura, I got her into that mess that was Drama Queen, so we won’t go there. I don’t know if they’re still drawing—you’ll have to find out on your own. I don’t hate BL, I read it quite often—particularly SuBLime’s digital offerings—but no, I won’t be reviewing it because…I’m just not that invested anymore.
Do I sound bitter? Absolutely. I made my pyre and I laid on it—and while not all the kindling was of my own doing, I’m smart enough to know when to throw in the towel and accept my faults and limitations. ^_-
In better news, the publisher that issued me the settlement over the plagiarism incident, sent me a notice today that my check will be mailed out on September 23rd. This was good to know, because I was wondering where it was, as its buying my spouse a new kitchen and a hefty down payment on an RV.
