Well, Happy Pride Month! Yeah, it’s 1 June and LGBTQ+ Pride month is upon us. I can’t say if I’ll have a good time of this month or now, but I’ll do my best.
Last night was good for me. Getting out of derby jail means I can once again attend league functions and that’s what I did. I was out at River Bend Brewery in Newport, PA, about 45 minutes northwest of The Burg, and it was a great time.
Coming home was a different story, as I spent part of the night driving home in a downpour so great that at times I couldn’t see the road. Add to that driving down dark, hilly, winding country roads, and it was an event in of itself. But I made it home safe and sound, which is why I’m writing this now.
And speaking of writing, I finished my mermaid story last night as well. So with the exception of one day, I managed a part of the story every day in May, though last night was a close one: I posted the last part of the story about four minutes before midnight. But that was still May, so there.
And speaking of that story, I’ve been busy with something today:
Yeah, I’m working on the possibility of taking my little mermaid novella–about 26,300 words little–and putting it up on Amazon for sale. Nothing big, just $.99, which I believe is the minimum you can charge for a Kindle book, but that’s not bad. I may even have someone lined up to do a cover, for which I’ll cut them in for a whole 10% of whatever money I make. It may not make a lot of money–which means the story won’t make much of a splash, get it?–but it’ll be something I published. And, why not? I spent the month writing the story and I’m proud of it.
And if I have some success with this, who knows what’s next?
I’m supposed to do my shot right now, but the truth is I’m craving some ice cream bad and after that I’ll likely do my shot. And after that I may settle in for the evening and start binge watching Babylon 5, which is on Amazon Prime this month. If you haven’t seen this and you have Amazon Prime, watch it. It’s probably the best science fiction series ever, at least where space opera is involved, and while it doesn’t have the wide base that Star Trek or Star Wars has, it’s so much better in so many ways…
As for any other writing that needs getting done–yeah, I’m working on it. I do what to write, but I’m thinking about what I want to write next. I’m strange that way, you know? But the writing is coming.
I just have to coax it out.
These muses are stubborn things…
