1- NOTHING! well, that one short thing... 

2- the greatest book anyone has ever written. almost done.

3- ooo, good question. Dystopian story inspired by a Sam Harris Ted talk. New twist on the whole thing. Exciting prospects, at least in my mind.

helpfulsnowman from Colorado is reading But What If We're Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman January 13, 2017 - 3:13pm

1. What is something you've recently finished?

Section of a long-ass book that's never totally finished, but brick by brick...

2. What are you working on now?

Stories that are 200 words or less. I get too wordy, so this has been good practice. I just did one about a time my brother puked on Xmas eve.

3. What are you going to work on afterward?

I wanted to write something about a person who does banner ads pulled behind an airplane. Someone who starts promo-ing the business to do stuff like break up with someone they're dating, hurting feelings, etc.

  1. Short stuff. Did some longer work last year.
  2. I haven't been writing much so far this calendar year. I'm working on the question of whether or not I actually want to submit any of the stuff I've had lying around. I have bad submission habits, basically the opposite of the advice you read concerning good submission habits. But, when I wrote most of this stuff, there was within me the supposition that I might at some point submit the stuff I wrote and that might've served as a vague motivator. I think I might just submit stuff for a while, hoping that will clear headspace or inspire a batch of new work.
  3. I might make a music record for February.
