I’m still working on this novel, the second draft to be exact. I should finish that by the end of the month. This is some kind of update I guess. A friend of mine actually got on me about not updating my blog enough. I thought it was funny. Not sure if he was really kidding or not. I’m listening to some good music right now, so I’ll tell you about her briefly. Kendra Morris is her name. Check her out. She’s from Florida too.
So, I’m hoping to have this novel done by the end of this year, or before the end of the year sounds better. I’ve been working on these ideas for years, technically. It’s been a journey, but I feel like James Baldwin when he said he needed to write Go Tell It On The Mountain before he wrote anything else. I feel that way, and that strongly about this one. After this, I’m pushing that collection of short fiction and poetry I may have mentioned before. I love the way that’s coming along, and I think that’s the only reason I wanted to write this very post. I’m working on a new way of writing some of my short fiction, and if I can develop the ideas correctly, I think it could be big, and change my writing forever.
