Little things

A quick update. Some little things. A few pictures I did with the kids recently. Word count update – about 850 words – I got a little enthusiastic, so went past my 350 goal.

The pictures are interesting, as they came out ok (I’m satisfied anyway), were fun to do (the kids were drawing too), and they forcibly reminded me of my mortality. I realised while drawing that I couldn’t see the pictures while they were close – an optometrist confirmed I need multi-focal lenses in my glasses. So I am indeed old.

Not much to say about the writing. It’s a weird, ugly, and quite possibly offensive idea I’ve been carrying for a while; one I suspect would be deeply unpublishable even if written by a skilled and experienced writer. Still, I can’t get it out of my head, and I guess its better to get it out and down, than let it fester in the back of my mind for any longer. At least if I abandon this one I wont feel bad about it.



*quick upate – total words is now 1,420.

Expect short stories, articles, essays and other brain dumps. My opinions are my own, and whilst I take care to be at least moderately informed about any topic I speak or write about, these opinions are subject to rapid change in the face of passionate arguments and greater evidence.
