I haven't written much recently, though I've still been pretty productive. I go through phases; I'm either writing, or musicing (that's definitely a word). I'm in a music phase at the moment. I've been jamming on and off with my good friend Shey over the past few months, and finally it feels like things are coming together. We've got a couple of songs written, pending vocals, and hopefully we'll at least manage to put out an EP and get some gigs under out belt.
The problem with the music phases is that they make me want to spend money; mainly on additions to my crappy little home studio, but also on bits for my drums and occasionally (very occasionally) effects pedals for my guitar. Luckily my birthday is coming up, so I'm using that the feed the urges instead of splashing out with money I'm meant to be saving. Hopefully I'll have some tunes to share here before too long.
In other news, I continue to collect rejections from many fine publications. I've had a few near-misses, but they count for exactly nothing. Still, I'll keep plugging away. I'm also hoping to start having somewhat-regular story battles with my friend Charlie; coming up with ridiculous prompts, each writing a story and then swapping and critting. It can only be a good thing, and it will definitely be fun.
That's all for now. Do something awesome this weekend.
