I have been working on completing a short story, but it’s been hard work. Writing has been difficult for the past six months or so. The ideas are still there but the ability to make those ideas flow onto paper, so to speak, has not been as easy. But I am trying.
Duckman and I have not been doing much collaboration, I’m sorry to say, and we’re both to blame on that. The reality is we are both adults with busy lives, and what was easy ten years ago is significantly more difficult now. I have used the word difficult quite a bit, so we will make that the word of the day. In the beginning we would meet up twice a week and do stuff and things would be great, fantastic, but now there’s work, family commitments, social commitments and other projects that keep us from finding the time. I don’t say this as an excuse, but more to try and explain the ‘difficulties’ in making a venture like this work. We are still doing stuff, but in our own individual capacities.
I am hoping between now and Christmas we will be able to put some material together and provide a release schedule, which would be nice. The time frame is tight, as Duckman traditionally shuts down for a while between Christmas and late January/early February. That would give us just under four months? Yes, that sounds about right. Most likely we produce the material and hopefully start a release plan around March? That would be my preferred plan in any case.
It’s interesting how time flies by without realising that is what’s happening. I have my current story - a crime/action medieval short story, which should be ready soon-ish. I plan on trying to get a few together by Christmas. I hope that both Duckman and I can put together a small surplus of material - i.e. blogs, stories, reviews, etc - and be able to release some material over the majority of that ‘vacation’ period.
Well, that’s all I really have to say for now. There are some cool ideas in the mix and I’m sure you’ll love what we come up with. So until next time, stay cool amigos!!
