I hate first entries on blogs. Mostly I hate writing them. That's because they always turn out really bad. I tend to just go on because I think the social networking is the worst aspect of this new project I'm working on.
New Project: Meet Real People. Network. Become a Writer.
A friend of mine (who actually is probably not a friend of mine anymore, I think he decided I was a loser) laid it all out for me. "You can't just write and send it out and be this guy nobody knows," he said. "You gotta network. Get out to some cons. Hand out some cards. Have a blog."
"Why not?" I said.
Well, anyway, here's the project. I've got a bunch of half-finished projects, two mostly-finished 'novellas' that are somewhere around 60-70k words, a Fake Name (so I don't mess up my Real Job), some business cards, and a plan to hit Hypericon weekend after next. So let's go.
So if you're wondering if this is a blog you want to follow, just skip to the next post. I just had to burn one and get it out of the way.
