Good morning and Happy Monday, WTF. Today, I’m stepping back into this joint blogging endeavor and letting my once-briefly-noticed blog Stark Writing Mad fall by the wayside. I realized a while back that I could blog regularly or write novels and stories, and since my various characters have a lot of pull in my head, and threatened me with violence and especially annoyance, the personal writing blog had to go. (Do you have any idea what it’s like to have a neglected character singing bad 80s hair-metal pop in your head because you haven’t gotten back to his story and he’s bored? I do not recommend it.) The gracious and talented Lisa welcomed me back with open arms, and I’m looking forward to filling the writing world with more words about books and writing and clinging to sanity, one pen-stroke at a time.
