Thank you. And a question.

Thank you guys who keep checking in despite each lengthy hiatus.

The Doritos ad fell through because flu, or some other bug, swept over my Knoxville babes and prevented the filming.

But.

Writing that ad unlocked something in my head that hasn’t been out in years.  Over the past week or so I have been obsessively writing a Young Adult novel.  I’m talking 20,000 words or more.  It’s crazy.  I probably have an overdue bill or two by now and can’t even care.  Ideas are still building up faster than I can note them.

I call it a YA novel, and it is, but for a very select young audience (cue Spinal Tap joke).  I’m writing it to the thirteen-year-old female version of myself.  Currently it would be a bit challenging for the average adult reader.

Of course, you guys are anything but average.

Since I’m ignoring day-to-day necessities, it’s unlikely I’ll be blogging about the ever-rapidly-increasing destruction of Western society.  As you know, I’ve given up on that mess.  The only surprise left is how insanely rapid is the collapse.  Like this month’s utterly stupid, weak, and immoral students at U. of Missouri and  freakin’ Yale.  As Bill Paxton observed:

“Game over, man!”

But some of you still drop by here.  So…would you like me to start posting material from the project?  Because that’s where my head will be for the next few months.

Current title:  “Every Somewhere:  the Adventures of Kristin Cross”.

I’m not threatening you with rough drafts.  Anything I post here would be relatively polished.  Maybe not a gleaming glossy “sell it on Kindle now!” polish, but it will have passed through at least one edit cycle.

And of course critiques and comments, should you choose to make any, would be warmly appreciated.

Let me know below.  God bless.

    Good luck. I look forward to your literary debut.

    Remember, respond to all criticisms with “Peasants! What do you know of ART!!”

    Maybe a monocle of some sort with a sneer for added dramatic affect. (pun intended)

    I totally welcome the chance to look at your stuff! But am concerned by what you might lose by “giving it away” all public and all.
