So I’ve been using this site as a pretty sporadic blog for a bit now, but there was a time several years back where I actually wrote regularly and this site was pretty much the hub for that. It’s about to swing that way again. I’ve struggled, as so many have, with the tumult of the last several years and what’s happened within them, and the result has been a substantial diminution of my creativity. This last week just about put me over the edge. But. That sort of means they win, right? If we all cover our heads and wail we’re not actively participating in the very type of world the malcontents are so terrified of. And I do like to terrorize them. So I got back to work, partly out of spite and partly out of curiosity to see if I still had anything in me to say. I dusted off about 10 stories in progress and made some choices.
Tonight, less than an hour before Pride fades for another year, I published my first piece of short fiction in about 5 years. It takes place several months after the events of Tessellations, another of my San Keros short pieces that slowly is introducing my city and cast to the world. Bomb(pop) is fun and flirty, sarcastic and unabashedly gay. Like, the gayest thing I’ve ever let eyes other than my own ever read…and it felt good. It’s a beach read of a short story, but it’s also a new beginning.
Expect to hear more from me, here on the blog as well as on Welcome to San Keros. Not every week, not even every month, but I’m finding my voice again and I’m not going to stay quiet anymore. So enjoy some summer sun with Bomb(pop), and I’ll see you again soon!
