My drug of choice is writing--writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Question: Will You Post More of Your Fiction? (FAQ)

Short answer: Yes, but.....

Long answer:

I will. However, blogging takes a LOT of time and I have two other jobs that take about twenty hours a week before I even sit down to write. And I'm armpits deep in a book that is long overdue. So my fiction hits this site slowly when I have the extra time to do it.  It isn't fire-and-forget the way some of my articles are or easy like cutting and pasting a bunch of memes.  I really try to polish fiction and think about it carefully and even run it past some peer review before publishing it. And then I have to go and want to have time to relax and be with my family and shit. It's chaos I tell you.

So what that means is that I put in about ten fold as much time and effort on a page of fiction as I do on a page of a regular article with the same word count.  If I published a lot more fiction, I would have a lot less time for the rest of the blog.  So I will keep posting fiction, but it will probably continue to trickle in until/unless I'm making enough money to forgo a lot more of my day jobs.

I'm also currently working on a novel that will drop here in serial format (in addition to being available in e-format and through print on demand).

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy what I have posted over at the Reliquary menu: "And Occasionally Some Writing."
