You may notice

That there is a big gap in the dates of these posts. That is because I switched from Livejournal to WordPress because not only did a Russian company take over Livejournal and wants me to agree to a new terms of service (TOS), but the Official TOS is in Russian which I can’t read. Oh they give you a translated version, but warn that it is not “official” therefore not binding.

cat blink what

Since I can’t log in to get my earlier posts unless I accept their TOS.  I am letting it all go, because there is no way I feel comfortable agreeing to something I can’t even read.

I’m back to blogging.

Whether that’s a good thing or not, I’ll have to tell you later.  My editor asked that I take up blogging again, even though I’m on Twitter and Facebook. So Hi!

I hope to blog once a week as my first goal. I think that’s more reasonable for me since blogging everyday was too difficult, and the last thing I want to do is start up again then quit!

Wish me luck.

A Most Joyful Chanuka to those who celebrate it

Ah, I just love this time of year. Lots of people are happy because they celebrate a holiday in December.

And Now for Something Completely Different

To take my mind off the June n Peaches story in the hands of others, because obsessing is rarely a good thing, I started a fun little project that is completely different. No wizards, no cats, no bad government agency, none at all. This is in a different world, where a crazy physics Professor invents a weather machine and proceeds to get his revenge on the small town that treated him so badly for the last twenty years.

I have no idea if it's marketable, all the 1950s adventure stories may show up one night to get their revenge, and the James Bond books have all been done, but gawd if writing this isn't fun. My protag is an arrogant young pup newbie reporter at a small town newspaper who thinks he's too big for this two-bit town. Here, see for yourself,
