The Plans at Hand…

Posted by Les Becker on June 5, 2007 in School, Short Fiction, Writing |

… so far, anyway, but I’ll be the first to admit that any “plan” I ever made in my entire life just turned around and bit me in the ass.

I’ve begun writing again, as My Landlady Story can attest, and I was pleased to discover that not only CAN I still write (which I had honestly begun to despair of), but that the story excites me, which is how it ended up into a To Be Continued state of being. There is very little of Ruby’s original yarn left in it. Part II is now complete (with another To Be Continued thrown in, yes, just to piss you all off), and is set to publish on Sunday, June 10th at 7 AM (because everybody ought to be out of bed and on the internet reading my blog on any given Sunday at 7 AM).

I must admit, that I’ve been a little disappointed with the reaction to Part I… being that the reaction has, for the most part, been, well, not much of anything. Even the lurkers that I have retained haven’t bothered to actually read the thing, according to my stats. This place has got pretty lonely of late, but I’m almost getting used to that.

Enough whining. It’s my blog, and it’s a comfort to me to post here, so I will continue regardless. There are five parts to The Waitress, the Whiskey, and the Handcuffs and I will string them along in weekly intervals, only because I also have three new cartoon panels to publish, and would like to mix it up a little. I should also admit that I have to actually draw the cartoon panels, and then upload them before they can be published, and this is probably where that will all fall apart, but then again, that seems to be my life in a nutshell, and like I say, I’m getting used to it.

On the school front, things are beginning to smooth out, when I can actually get there, but that’s another story. I never was much for “showing up” where school was concerned, as my mother would be the first to tell you if asked, and I guess that’s one bad habit that I may never break. Along with smoking, which I am back doing, to the point that I can’t afford beer, which really sucks.

But, I’m beginning to enjoy my own company again, now that I’m writing, and I even have a little idea that “The Waitress” may just make a decent screenplay eventually, which would maybe not be such a smart move. I’ll have to think that one over a little longer.

So, to those interested (and those that aren’t, but for some reason continue to click over here), those are the plans, posted for the sake of posting, which is always a stupid reason to post, but there you have it.

As you were.
