I’ve been away. Maybe you’ve noticed. Maybe you haven’t. Maybe you cared. Maybe you didn’t. Maybe I know that I should have written something on here since MY last blog, but then again, maybe I don’t. Maybe I haven’t had anything to say.
Maybe I should stop this maybe train of retardation and write something worth reading.
I’ll be in NYC for events on June 22nd and 23rd. I’ll post the event details here and on MY Anointed Facebook Fan Page in the next day or so. I’d be more specific, but I’m a bit smidgy right now, and I’m not even sure what that means. Once I figure that out, then I can move on to the details of MY events. I know they are both at the Tank, in the Theater District, off 45th street, and that they are pretty cool pairings. I also know that I’m geeked about getting back to New York, and that I’ll be there on MY birthday, which may not really enhance the moment, but is still cool all the same.
I’ve been working steadily on both the follow up to Anointed (working title of Angelic Malcontents), and also the first book in a young adult fantasy series, the title of which is The Storyteller, though I’ve yet to subtitle it. There will be 5 books in that series, each with The Storyteller title, followed by a book-specific subtitle. I’m very happy with the progress on it (I scrapped 50ish pages and have rewritten almost all of them, now), and I look forward to blitzing through to the end, and then finding a home for it. Which I will. I think it’s an appealing story, to be honest. At some point, I’ll post some more info on it, but well…truly, right now I’m blitzed. Or smidgy. One of them. I’m something that isn’t totally coherent. I’ve been helping MY good friend, Jim Mundy, this week at a chess camp he puts on each year. 20+ kids, 5 days, 6-7 hours a day. Exhausting, and I didn’t even do the bulk of the work. Been hard, squeezing in writing on a tenth of the brain power.
Oh, and if you happen to be interested in the timeline of Anointed, we reach an important date on Tuesday, June 9th. That would be the day, within the world of the book, in which Billy Christ anoints Timothy Webb as his successor. Despite the fact that it hasn’t developed the way I had hoped, or planned, I will still be following through with the Twitter switch over. Billy will announce his retirement on Monday, spend the day reflecting on that, and then Timmy Christ will come in a few days later. He’ll assume control of Billy’s twitter account, and I’ll be working to gain him a true following. I plan on using his account more than I did for Billy–though in fairness to Billy, he has never truly embraced the technology at his disposal–and also hopping back on the TCC website and revisiting the blog, with Timmy in control. Then we’ll all go for a six-week ride, as Timothy’s story unfolds. I think, of all the things I have looked forward to with this project, these next six weeks may be at the top of the list. Now, more than ever, the time to ruffle feathers has come. I shall let (Timmy) Christ lead the way.
So, make sure to check in. I’ll be tying all the sites and tools together in order to innundate everyone with what I’m doing.
But now I’m a bit smidgy and blitzed. I shall sleep.
Here’s a video to entertain you, and make sure that this visit wasn’t entirely in vain. Go. Watch it. Enjoy. You’ll love it.
