I will be blogging fiction

I have decid­ed that I will be post­ing some new fic­tion work on this site. I have an idea for a new sto­ry; once I have prop­er­ly con­struct­ed the sto­ry and begun the writ­ing I will start post­ing it here. My goal is to post one chap­ter every oth­er month. I know that’s not much, but it’s a start. We’ll see how that goes once the actu­al writ­ing process begins.

Blogging again?

I am think­ing about reviv­ing this blog. What should I blog about? I could do some­thing about my Druidry. I could also post fic­tion; I have an idea for sto­ry, I could write is exclu­sive­ly to be put on here.

I’m try­ing to decide what it should be.

Thoughts?

Responsibility-phobia? Consequence aversion?

Why have we, as a soci­ety, devel­oped such a rabid fear of fac­ing the con­se­quences of our actions?  Not all indi­vid­u­als are like that, of course, but far too many are!  Every day I hear peo­ple at work (cus­tomer or cowork­ers) who claim that they should not have to face the con­se­quences brought about by what they have cho­sen to do.

Isn’t that some­thing we learned as chil­dren?

Probably not a good thing

I think I am slid­ing into what promises/threatens to be a very deep depres­sion.  I can feel it com­ing and I real­ly don’t know if I have the ener­gy to fight against it.

Political

As I sit here in my office, I can hear a few of my cowork­ers whin­ing and bemoan­ing the fact that Oba­ma won the elec­tion.  They are actu­al­ly stat­ing that the Unit­ed States is going to be destroyed now that we have a Demo­c­rat as pres­i­dent.  They seem to for­get that only one pres­i­dent ago, we had a Demo­c­rat in the White House.

And, of course, there are some who are ter­ri­fied of the fact that the new pres­i­dent-elect has more pig­ment in his skin than they do.

Samhain is over for another year

Last night the grove had our Samhain obser­vance.  The rit­u­al went very, very well and we had twelve peo­ple attend­ing.  Not a large group real­ly, but not a bad num­ber.  Four of the peo­ple there were new, and I think they’ll be back; they seemed to enjoy the rit­u­al quite a bit.

I have most my freakin’ mind!

As if I’m not doing enough, how exact­ly did I let myself fall into a project of work­ing on a gri­moire-style col­lec­tion of Druidic mag­ics?

shakes head in sorrow

I just had some­one here at work ask me who I was going to vote for. They want­ed to know who I could vote for since I’m a “god­less Pagan” and both the can­di­dates – accord­ing to this per­son – want “my kind” removed from the coun­try.

I’m not sure if I should laugh in con­tempt or cry in despair at the stu­pid­i­ty of some peo­ple.

Musings

Noth­ing like being stuck at home with an unex­pect­ed sinus con­di­tion to spawn some seri­ous intro­spec­tion.  I have reached an unpleas­ant con­clu­sion about my life:  it bites.  I am real­ly tired of being alone.  I just want to be able to share my life with some­one.  I don’t think that’s too much to ask, you see it all around.  I don’t know why I can’t be one of those peo­ple who has some­one in his life to be there for him and to be there for. 

Of course, much of this self-pity-fest is due to the fact that I get rather pathet­ic and maudlin when I get sick.

DragonCon 2008

I am now off work until next Wednes­day.  This is a very long week­end for me to attend Drag­onCon.  I am look­ing for­ward to this.  I could real­ly use a good four-day peri­od of fun.
