And I do mean "dear." I appreciate all of you ( i.e., all three of you) who have sent me encouraging words. I imagine there are a silent few more of you reading, too.
Anyway, this experiment has been a fascinating experience. And it is at that point that all writing experiences reach--that is, the frustrating point. This is also an exciting point, because it means things are breaking open, the way is becoming clear. However, as concerns you, it is not so exciting, because as I get into the writing of this thing I call The Toy Box, I don't have much energy, mental or otherwise, to package it all in a way that makes it interesting to read.
I have learned that I like posting fiction online, but that the kind of work writing a long story (i.e., a novel) requires (of this writer at least) does not lend itself to regular posts that build upon one another. I edit as I go and I don't really look back. So again, how to make this interesting to a reader, I don't know.
Here is what is interesting: I'm also working on some other short fiction pieces, and as those reach readable draft phase, I will post them.
Here's something else: I've started an email list, the better to update you when something mildly entertaining occurs in these parts. If you'd like to be notified about such excitement, please sign up.
Again, thank you for your interest in my writing.
