The Last Month

No, not the final month.  That would be silly!  There's bound to be several months after this one.  Probably. 

But the last month sure has been quiet for this blog.  And by quiet, I of course mean that I have posted nothing here.  Now, I've been known to do this in the past, but I still feel bad about it.  Blogs are for blogging, and if a blogger won't blog, well, what's a blog for?  Occupying space, I suppose, but nobody wants to be a blogsquatter.

My micro-blogging endeavors over at The Wave Function Tumblr have been considerably more fruitful, with four pages (and counting!) of posts of other people's content reposted with my undeniably invaluable and insightful commentary.  On top of that, I've used the platform to write a couple of micro-mini-short stories, brief little fables written on the spur of the moment.  I plan to keep writing these, and possibly compile a few of them on this blog once I have enough.  They call that synergy, I hear.

Now, I haven't been entirely idle toward The Wave Function Junction.  I have just been mostly idle.  Many times when I could have been doing some meaningful writing, I was instead loafing around my girlfriend's house watching Angel and playing Kingdom Hearts 2.  On the more productive side of things, I have been renewing my contacts with the local school districts, updating my tax forms and preparing for a new semester of being called upon at five thirty in the morning to go teach pre-algebra in an hour.  This last week I got my first sub job of the school year, and it felt good to be back on that particular horse again.  I also bought a new suit, because hey, suits.

And I even have a new story in the pipe for this blog, a fantasy/dreamline about a musician, entitled Dreaming of a New Set of Strings.  It's only about halfway done and I want to polish what I've got some more, but I am working on it.  Really!  This is no sprawling multi-part epic, just a simple tale of unusual events with the slightest hint of a moral about following your dreams and so on.  And if I can keep from watching too much Angel in the coming weeks, I'll be sure to get it done soon.

So worry not, hypothetical reader: the blog is live and content awaits.  And it'll be good, it really will.  Very soon I'll have some more thoughts on politics (oh yay), television, and life to share with the world.  But tonight, this is all you get.  Because right now, I'm about to hop in my car and go watch a show about vampires.
