'09

i hope all of my non-existant readers had a great year. and a wonderful new year's eve full of drinks n laughs n kisses after midnight.

'08 was a great year, and '09 looks to be at least as good, if not better.

i have figured out which of the story ideas i have had trundling around in my head is going to be my second book. i won't delineate the particulars here, because i truly feel that not everything i write should predominantly begin its existence here, else why bother getting the books published in the first place? i mean, The Unfinished Work is at least 70% culled straight from this blog. that really makes it a bit like a "best of" cd that is 18 songs you already have on other albums with two or three new (usually shitty) songs you won't get anywhere else to try and convince you you need this album as well.

i will say, this one is going to be a work of fiction. not that memoirists aren't true writers, or not even extremely talented; they are, but i feel that if i really want to call myself a writer, i need to actually develop some characters, create a plotline that is more involved than a point a. to point b., think about what the characters i have created would actually do in the situations they find themselves in as a result of the plot line i have created, and still be able to make the reader laugh and cry, love and hate, feel great joy and deep agony the same way i might when i am pouring out my own personal feelings in a memoir.

and i think i have the plot and a batch of characters that will do this in spades.

just hope i can do them justice.

Happy New Year Darth and family.

If anything I've read here is an indicator, I'm sure the second book will be very good.

Besides, fiction is the best. :)
