Grab bag of writing goodness

Hey. September eh? Strange. Don’t expect too much but I have an almost optimistic feeling going into this time of year, weird.

This post is a clearing house for loose words. Below you’ll find links to a few pieces I’m fond of from the past few months, shared as a way to clear some mental real estate to make room for the big story I’m going to write for Jim Sallis’ Novel writing class. Likely more on the class soon, so far it has been an intense experience. It’s nice to be around other engaged writers for a few hours Monday night. Still a bit nervous when I give my two cents as everyone but myself and another student (also named Jonathan??) have taken the class before. They all know each other and what’s expected and acceptable participation-wise.

Also posting a fun little story I wrote for Jed Allen’s creative writing class I took over the summer at PC called The Note. The story is kind of a cannibalization of two other ideas, neither of which were actually used in the story. I will re-write it at some point with a slightly more serious tenor and expand the content to include the ideas that inspired it. For now it’s funny and quick, it ends more abruptly that I would have liked, mainly because I didn’t want to burden the other students with a long piece.  That and as usual I put it off until the last minute and was running out of time before class to finish up.

Also putting up this strange little drawing I made and then messed with in photoshop, possibly of interest for my friends aware of my numerous sub-artistic line doodles, most of which are either a hand or a body without features, or an abstract design. This guy has a face & eyes n stuff. He came out of nowhere. He reminds me of a Jinn. I am taking him as a good omen. He makes me laugh. Enjoy!
