After nearly 2 years of neglecting my blog, I think it’s time to dig it up, sew the parts together, zap it and bring it back to life.

So, what’s going on with me now.
Last weekend, I took part in Vaginomicon, a mash-up of “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler and Scary stuff. We did it for Women in Horror Month.

How’d this happen? Well, Tori planted the seed, and Jenna took it from there, collecting a rag-tag group of women and men to write and perform scary monologues about scary women doing scary things. How cool is that.

And, the amazing thing. We put this together in under a month. Writing, practicing, planning, acquiring space, advertising, and actually doing the deed. Truly amazing. Everyone was amazingly supportive, we all had a great time, and we’re looking forward to doing it again. And hey. It’ll grow into something much bigger. I’m sure of it.

Aside from that, I’ve picked up my writing where I left off. I’ve declared my first draft as ‘complete’ even though I need to write up a bit of the ending, and I’ve started revising. I’m improving the story, tuning the language, adding more character development, and all that.

I’ve also started attending Sci-Fi and Fantasy conventions where I can mix with other writers, learn from them, and honestly, it’s just been fun. I’ve met some great people, who like me have stories in their head that are desperate to burst out. So far, I’ve attended Rustycon and Radcon.

Next is Norwescon, with a side trip to Comicon.

I’m turning into such a nerd.

Here’s hoping I can keep on posting…
