I'm a slacker! Woo!

As if any of you didn't know that already.

I haven't done any more revising on the stolen story since Sunday. I know what I want to do to it, though, I just haven't actually sat down and done it. Maybe I'll get to it tonight. If not, well, there's always the weekend. I will feel confident that I've acheived my goal because the story is done, and it's only the very last section that still needs some work. But I did finish it.

I've started on the new story, too. Well, the new/old story. It's something that I started writing years and years ago, and never did finish it. When I decided I wanted to write something dark fantasy/horrorish set in ABQ, I remembered that story (which is about a demon), and how it was never completed. I've decided to totally rewrite it and set it here. I think it will work well. I've already started with a new beginning, it just sprang out of nowhere (at work, even), so I wrote it down. I think I like where it's going. It needs a name, though. For now, I'll just call it the demon story.

I found a new author's website/blog from a link that was posted in Neil Gaiman's journal. It was the link to Will Shetterly's blog. He's just started it recently, but it looks promising. His website has author stuff. On the page "Pithy Advice for Writers" there are two great lines:

Dare to fail; that's why God made revisions.

Write to please yourself first and others second, and you'll never fail.

And with that, I think I'll go get ready for work.
