Ok, first the good news. I just found out that I am going to be a dad again. I can't even begin describe how excited I am about this announcement. This will be child number two and I couldn't be happier.
Lucky for me, the good news far outweighs the bad. I got an email from the editors of the Monsters and Mormons project telling me that they decided not to take my story that I submitted to them. Oh well. Worse things have happened, I think I'm going to be ok here. On the bright side, they did send me an email and included specifics as to why they opted not to publish my piece, and that was very helpful. So, not all bad.
I'm still working on the second draft of Dead in the Water. It's coming along well, and I think that I've got the problems I was having with the ending just about fixed. More to come on this project as I complete it.
I'm cruising through the seasons of Dexter, entering season three tonight. Good show, overall, but the mature content almost kills it and in some episodes, does. No, believe it or not, I'm not referring to violence and gore, despite the show being about a serial killer who kills killers. No, the mature content I'm referring to is the bizarre sexual content that the show flaunts unnecessarily. The overall story is good, but if anything it has made me realize what a great job Dan Wells did with his John Cleaver series. In it he tackled essentially the same topics, and put them together in a way that creeps you out way more than Dexter does, while at the same time steering clear of the more mature content.
Well, that's all for now. Time to get back to work on the book.
