Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Posted by Dirck on 27 February, 2014

WHAT:  First draft of short stories “E.Z. Notes” (working title) and “Ring and Run” (which may actually stick).

HOW MUCH: Two and a half pages altogether.

HOW LONG: About 30 min. ( I had to walk to a nearby store to buy some materials for doing A Clever Thing with a pen).

DONE?: Yes with the first, in a very sketchy way; second draft on that one is going to call for a chisel, a blowtorch, and a little divine intervention.

Today’s pen: Sheaffer 300
Today’s ink: Diamine Steel Blue

    When will we get to read the fruits of your writing labors?

    • Let’s see… a couple of drafts, a proof-read, shanghai-ing an editor, overcoming nervousness, submission to an appropriate venue…

      Seventeen years?

      But with a little less comedy; I am going to try actual submission to actual publishers with most of them once they’re properly polished, so it may be a while. Some that are too silly for submission may go straight to the public here, if I can overcome the notion that doing that sort of thing will make potential publishers (or their agents) disinclined to accept the works of someone who could publicly admit to having written *sniff* that.
