It’s been quiet here lately. You know what that means:

I’m editing. and editing some more.

The last part of Maybe True, Mostly Metaphor is done, but, here’s the deal:

It wasn’t all that good.

No, I’m not being self-deprecating and humble in the hopes of gaining complements. The past two years of on again off again writing Maybe True Mostly Metaphor have been an exercise in getting as many of my thoughts down on paper (paper? when’s the last time I used paper?) before I lose them again. The final product of my overall story will likely look very different.

What will happen when I’m done editing? no idea. Statistically, I’ll spend the rest of my life getting rejection letters until the story is no longer culturally relatable but that’s okay. I had fun writing it. And it was a great way to sort my problems out in life and clear my head. Luckily, life is full of new problems things that need sorting so my mind is full of new ideas that need to be written just for the sake of keeping me sane. but first, editing.

Thanks again, reader. I’ll be around.
