so, today is my 25th birthday.
today is also 'R U OK?' Day.
these two facts would be mutually exclusive, except one of my friends inboxed everyone on my Facebook account and told them to ask me 'R U OK?' instead of wishing me a happy birthday.
so now I have 95 wall posts (and counting), all asking if I'm ok.
I also had the following interaction with my mother this morning:
it was somewhat amusing.
anyway, on the writing front, I can happily say that I sat down and plotted A Shot of Clarity in its entirety last night. frame-by-frame, scene-by-scene. there'll be seven parts to the story (plus Prologue and Epilogue), and they should all be written in pretty quick order.
in terms of its marketability... I'm not sure. I have this dream of completing a longer story and seriously workshopping it within the local writing community, but I feel that the final product will be a weird, in-between length. 10-15k sorta range. too long to be a short story, not long enough to be a novella.
I'll figure it out, though.
after all, if it's really, really good, who's going to care about its length?
I feel like there's a that's what she said joke in that somewhere.
maybe another time.
