I just wrote a short story.

I feel good. I feel damn good. I feel a little like the inside of my brain's been scooped out. I just sat down and wrote out about 3,000 words that actually said what I wanted them to say. It's about a character I've been considering lately, a dude named Jingo. It's, I dunno, magical realism?

Of course, now I want to make people read it. I considered putting it up on the blog, but that just seems a little too public-access for something that may become a novel. But if anyone is willing to read it and maybe pass along a little criticism, email me and I'll send it to you.

It's called "What You Need, When You Need It".

Leave it a few days and take a look again. I love the feeling of getting something 'good' down but I rarely pass judgement or allow myself the sensation for long until some time after the event when I re-read.

If you feel like sharing with someone from your long ago past, I'd be honored to read it...if you don't, I fully understand. At any rate, it's wonderful to see that you're writing - your talent always inspired me and left me a little jealous, LOL. Drop me a note over on my blog if you care to, and I'll happily supply an address if the notion is acceptable. (TL) -AA

DG, that was a great read, really fun and clever, but now the book, the rest of the story. C'mon, I know there's more in there.
