Once You Go Black
Yeah, I’ve been playing hooky for a few days.
Well, it’s been a working hooky-play. I’m cleaning up, shaking out, and straightening out my serial e-novel, “Black Comedy.”
It’s on its fourth re-write at this point and some character names and events have been changed and deleted and added. When I recently looked back on the 37 episodes that have run on The Pencil thus far, I noted a few (okay, a lot of) instances where I inadvertently left in an old name or referred to an event that I’d deleted. Ergo, the clean up. And ergo, the break I’m taking.
Not only that, It’s deadline time to get new articles up on the Ryder website (of which I am the Minister of Propaganda or, more palatably, the Online Editor.)
So that’s why I haven’t posted since Wednesday. Nor will I (besides this little mea culpa) until Monday.
Anyways, jump on the “Black Comedy” bandwagon. Just click the tab at the top of this page or the pretty little blog-ad (below — I just drew it up about a half hour ago.) Start from the beginning and have fun. And talk about it. And tell your friends. Who knows, this might be the start of a viral phenomenon wherein I become the second author-billionaire in the history of the human race.
And you’ll be able to tell your friends and grandchildren that you were hip to the “Black Comedy” thing before virtually anybody else was.
Whaddya waiting for?
