Fashionably Late

I know people have been blogging for a long time.  I've read blogs that have been going for the better part of a dcade, so I thought maybe it's my time to try my hand at this blogging thing.  After all, I do consider myself a writer and what should a writer do besides write?  Tell readers (I hope I have readers) what he's writing, where to find said writing and to ask readers to pester him until he writes some more.

I am procratinator when it comes to my writing.  Maybe it's partly due to my day job or that I edit Bete Noire Magazine and run Dark Opus Press, but I think it stems from the fact that I'm my own worst critic.  Everytime I try to write, I sit here and look at the text on the screen and Mort Rainey (the movie version from Secret Window) and says to me "No bad writing."   I know, I know, I need to get past that and just write and I'm told that my work is pretty good.  So, now that I'm on the downward side of the hill of life, I ask you, dear reader, to keep pestering me.  Ask if I've written anything lately.  Ask if anything new is coming out and where you can find it.

Ask, ask, ask.  I won't get mad.


I want to write, I need to write.  I just need some help to stay motivated.

Will you help me?

I'll see you in Oz, Folks.
