My solemn pledge

Not sure how many of you know that along with publishing Lorraine and James I am also a writer; novels, short stories and the like. Except, I haven't been doing very much writing (read: any) because I have been doing, well....this. That is causing no small dilemma with my artist self. She is getting antsy and acting out in some very strange ways, the least of which is causing her to burst into wild screaming fits in the night (by the way, do say a short prayer for her frightened family)

And so, I am going to make a public pledge to write something. Something good (this is sure to be subjective, I know) and publish it. Okay there I said it. I am going to write something and publish it and not be afraid to turn my face to the sky for fear that hot stones will rain on me. Or, I might be afraid but that won't stop me.

Anyway, thanks for listening.

Thinking out loud

I know I said I would stop by more often but jeesh! who knew this publishing-a-journal-thingie would be so much work? (I'm sure some clever corn nut is out there waving his hands over his head like a wild bat shouting “me! me! I knew!”) Well, I didn’t. Nonetheless here I am. I actually stopped by to drop off some important info:

1) Lorraine and James rocks! (If you don’t know, now you know)

2) Vol. 2 Issue 1 is going to be a themed issue. The theme is PLACE. Take us there. Wherever it is; and do not disappoint.

3) Lorraine and James will run its first contest in Vol. 2 Issue 2. The prize will be hefty, the judges will be brutal and the final product will be one for the ages. More details will follow. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.

4) I’m tired.


Good night.
