August is always a time for introspection for me, due to the whole birthday thing.

So I have been taking stock of where I am, where I’ve come from, and where I am going.

No real conclusions, as yet, except that I think I am mostly satisfied with my progress as a writer this year. I’ve talked about that some in my monthly status updates. To sum up, I set myself too ambitious a pace, but I learned a lot about how I work, what a more reasonable goal would be, and the sort of work that comes easy to me.

I have a project in the works that I am very excited about, and a couple of others on the horizon. Managing workflow is of primary importance to a freelance career in the arts. If I had a piece of advice to give new writers it would be to forget the MFA, get a degree in Project Management.

I recently gave an interview on The Horror Tree where I talk about my thoughts on writing in general and Horror in particular. As part of my looking back I found an interview I did for the Sins Of The Past anthology back in August of 2015, and I found it interesting how consistent my perspective has been over the years.

I also ran across an essay from August 0f 2013 that I particularly like, and a poem from August of 2012 that I think stands up to the test of time.

I’m still not sure what I am doing, but I do seem to be doing it consistently.

    There’s a title calculated to appeal to me! Fifty-six is also a tetrahedral number: 56 oranges could be stacked in a triangular pyramid, six oranges on a side. I always like looking up special numerical properties of ages I reach.
