So long as Mr Reality Studio doesn't mind, I thought I would start a thread where Reality Studio Regulars can perhaps talk about their more personal literary and creative pursuits and the like. I for one am starting to get a little curious about some of you guys here. I know we have at least a couple of writers on board, and probably some artists in other mediums too. So if anyone would like to share something of what they are up to along these lines, here's a spot for it.....
I do experimental writing and poetry. My first real collection is coming out this week or next. It's called 'Destroy all Planets' and has a very familiar cover (well, familiar to folks here).
I am also writing my book Miso which I'm planning to make into a life's work kind of thing, something to mine for material from time to time, but not to be published until much later on. Hopefully it will bloom to 1,000,000 words.
I''m also taking a break from my novel The Long Friday because I need to tear it apart now that it's complete and intersect some of Miso into it and then re-write a bunch of it. And then try and really take it off the rails, but keep it fun and interesting. Admittedly it's a bit of a reach-around to WSB, but that's okay.
All books I publish will be published through Lulu or some such site. I figure it's the best way to make some actual money at all of this.
I also have a project on the go with some other people from here and elsewhere, but you won't hear about that until it's something dead for sure, like it's been printed and sitting in a warehouse.
i'm up for collaborations if you're into it.
