& the fire
& the fire
Sometimes I think this is my favorite song
and other times I think it’s this
but I’m pretty sure it’s neither.
I’m just sad.
Starting a new graphic novel soon. Writing one, I mean. I’ll introduce you to the artist later. This time it’s one who speaks english, so it should be easier to make contact.
for my part, i prefer my heart to be broken
it is so lovely, dawn-kaleidoscopic within the crack
and all you knew was ash
and your sorrow was your cage
Back from AWP with a lot of big news. Got accepted to the MFA at Boulder, sold a novel to a publisher [though this is a secret], and met and hungout with all kinds of awesome people who were much more interested in my writing than I ever would’ve guessed.
Anyrate, too much to post so I’ll keep it simple. I’m giving away copies of Ash Cinema and my graphic novel, the curious girl floating there. All you need to do is share the Ash Cinema page on your facebook wall to get Ash Cinema and then review it for a copy of the curious girl floating there.
Anyrate, giving about twenty or so away and over half are already claimed, so get on it!
I’ll post about other interesting things on a later date, including new stories, since I’m three stories behind at this moment and heading towards four.
Also: the cover of the graphic novel:
About to get on a plane to go to Boston to hangout with people I primarily know through the internet, friends brought together from worlds apart by the fact that we all stare into computer screens for way too many hours every day. AWP for the second year in a row. I’ll be at the Mudluscious/Dzanc table intermittently as well as wandering as a member of the horde through the book fair.
As you’ve likely noticed, no new stories for the last two weeks and there won’t be one this week either. As predicted, I’ve fallen behind, but I’ll be sure to catch up later.
Got a new job, quit my old one, Chelsea comes in a little over a week, maybe writing a novel in between.
I’ve mostly just taken time off to read, catch up on the books I need to review, and just hangout. I have a lot I need to post in here, a lot of thinking of thoughts, but, for now, just going to tell you that I’ve had important thoughts and interesting things to say but haven’t had the time to say or do most of it.
Anyrate, I’ll see a lot of you at AWP [like anyone reads this, ha], and I’ll see the rest when I return, or something.
Still waiting on graduate schools, too. Probably not getting in anywhere, which actually doesn’t bother me. Another year in asia is what that probably means.
I’ve not washed my hair with soap in over a month but no one seems to’ve noticed so I think I’m done washing my hair.
Anycase: au revoir, mes enfants.
