Tonight Has Finished Me Off Again

There is much rejoicing because the WIP is done!! The novella blossomed and grew into something much bigger and better than I thought it would be, and I'm pleased to be done with it. Now, for the edits and then hitting send! But, first I need a break.

What better way to unwind, than with a little Man Candy. Aussie Rules season is upon us, so I've picked out some extra special Candy this week. It's a classic. Go Cats!!

I won't be around much this week. Tuesday, we are heading to NYC for a taping of the Daily Show! It will be another case of trying to keep myself from humping someone. This time, instead of Henry Rollins, it will be Jon Stewart. The things I go through for entertainment!

Not On Strike, But I'm About to Bowl One

I'm about waist deep in my new work in progress, and I think it is going well. It's been going a bit slower than I would like, but I'm trying. I have to get back to it, but I would be remiss if I didn't stop by and post some Man Candy. You know, I'm not a soccer fan, but I may have to rethink that policy.

I Got Truth In Times of Fiction

I got some good news today, Best Lesbian Erotica 2011 is a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award!! I am so proud to be a part of this collection and have my fingers crossed that it is honored with the award. The best part, the event is being hosted by Lea DeLaria, who was the guest judge for the book and also wrote the introduction. Sounds like fate to me!

I did something fairly scary recently, well I should say scary for me. I let some deadlines pass me by. For the last year or so, I've been trying to hit as many deadlines as I can for various collections and anthologies. It has served me well, keeping me busy and letting me write a variety of different stories with an amazing array of themes. But, I've felt the need for a long time to 'do my own thing', for lack of a better way to say it. It's a scary prospect in some ways, not having a set goal, a set theme or a deadline pushing me to keep writing. But, I have to do it. In a lot of ways, I feel like I have no choice. I have to take the leap, and if I fall, well, so be it.

Tonight, we are going to see Henry Rollins at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg. This will be the sixth time I've seen him do a spoken word show. It will take all of my strength to not hurl myself on stage and hump him silly. If that does happen to occur, at least I can go to jail happy! I'll be back tomorrow with a recap!

And, For No Good Reason Here You Are, Inside My Head Again

Not much to say right now. It's just not the right time. I'll be back soon with more. Until then, Man Candy will have to do. Hope you all have a great start to the week.

And Time Stacks Up in Piles Like Winter Snow

How do the weekends always go by so damn fast? I swear it was just Friday a second ago. It was nice to actually get something accomplished this weekend, although it never seems to be as much as I want. But, such is life.

I'm ready to tackle yet another week of words, some how. Damn me and my procrastination. Just when you think you have it beat, it rears its ugly head again. One day at a time, I guess. The trick seems to be instead of beating myself up for putting things off, just starting over the next day, next week, next minute. In the past, I would just throw my hands up and say, "Oh well, fuck it!" and give up completely. Today, I'd like to think I'm over that black and white thinking. Now, I just get my ass back in front of the keyboard and start again. What else can I do?

I'm doing this week's visual treat as (hopefully) a farewell to winter and the snow. I don't know what I'd do without my Man Candy. Thank God, I don't have to find out!

Alone We May Fight, So Just Let Us Be Three Tonight

Got some good news yesterday that I thought I'd share. Three anthologies that contain my stories have been nominated for the 2011 TLA Gaybie Awards. They are: Skater Boys, edited by Neil Plakcy, Hard Working Men and College Boys edited by Shane Allison. Awesome, no? I'm super stoked to be a part of all these collections and am personally hoping for a three-way time for first place! Follow this link to vote and make my dream a reality.

Back to work. I suddenly feel inspired! I hope you do, too.

I Want Your Leather Studded Kiss in The Sand

Sometimes, love isn't pretty. The new anthology, Bad Romance from Freaky Fountain Press, has erotica that deals with that very thing. The collection includes my story, On the Quiet. At $4.99, it's a bargain, but for those of you who still like the feel of paper in your hands, it is also available in paperback. Check it out and let me know what you think!

(Today's lyrics were obviously a no brainer!)
