One of the few negative side effects of my new journey into the PhD program is that I will have to place my fiction writing on hold. I generally don’t think about it, but every once in a while I get a little stabbing pain of longing when I receive a message like this:
I just finished [Pleroma] tonight and went right to your website and happily downloaded the first 5 Chapters of book Two. Although I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it, Pleroma really ended up holding my interest and kept me wanting more. After reading the first portion of Amo, I am irritated I cannot continue reading until this fall. Looking forward to it, sir!
For anyone who may share those same feelings about Amo I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I have completed the story and it exists in a semi rough draft state. The bad news is that I lack the funds and the time to do the finish edit on it and get it published. If you would like a copy of the rough draft, I would be happy to send it to you and get your feedback.
OK, now back to reading my book about Critical Social Theory, studying for my German proficiency exam, studying for four entrance exams, and packing for the Missions trip to Atlanta (we leave tomorrow!!!)
