I’m a bit of a monomaniac when it comes to writing. When I go into writing mode, I go all the way in and don’t really have a mind to do anything else. Once the draft is done, I come up for air and find I have to mend all the fences damaged due to my neglect.
By the way, until I looked it up just now, I always believed “monomaniac” was the word for an obsessive masturbator, but it turns out it’s just someone who focuses on one thing to the exclusion of all else. I suppose I could have said Otaku instead.
Normally, I will only drop off for three or four weeks, but I have two manuscripts in the last stages of their final drafts right now and I basically went from one to the other without taking a break. My podcast, “Arriving Late”, all about 1990s TV SciFi from the POV of someone who’s never seen it, will start up again on January 10th. And posts here on my lonely blog will also start coming again at the usual irregular intervals.
Things I’m looking forward to in the new year:
- Future Man Season 2
- Killing Eve Season 1
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 1
- Into the Spiderverse
- Mission Impossible: Guy On A Plane or Cliff or Something
Yes, I am behind on my genre consumption because, as I mentioned before, I was TRAPPED IN A WELL FOR SIX WEEKS.
Love to you all and wishes for a better year.
