What that Oni Press Proposal Is

Oh, you should see the very very VERY scary stack of work on my desk. Eh.

So, I’m taking a little break. I did teacher prep this morning, and I’ve had enough of that. I sent out a little writer stuff and that brings me to the journal. After I do a little writing here, I’ll work on scheduling what looks to be an intimidating number of meetings.

This afternoon I’m working on writing.


I promised I would tell you about my Oni Press project once I was closer to done. I should finish by the end of this month. Currently I’m under the delusion that I might even finish this afternoon. The story is called Alan Lynx, the Time Spy, and Me. It’s a Cold War spy adventure with a time travel component, which is why I’ve watched the new Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie countless times and have taken up Mad Men. Immersion. :/ No, I’m afraid Mission: Impossible is no longer helpful. Over there, it’s the 70s, man, and it’s just not my scene.

I really like the story. It hits a lot of my buttons and marries many of my interests as a fan. I get to do partner spies, women’s rights, time travel, and vintage looks. NOT that I’m drawing anything.

Well. I’m off to my weekend. Writing this afternoon, garage cleaning tomorrow, date night tomorrow night, and a fairly typical Sunday of choring, checking papers, and maybe writing. Or doing some plotting for my role playing game. Both need doing and exercise my creative self.

I hope you have a great weekend.
