WRITING IN PUBLIC

Day 8 of writing SHOTGUN GUNSLINGERS, a post-apocalyptic adventure set in the world of the Botanical Crusades. Progress: 520 words in 1 hour.

By all reasonable schedule expectations, this story should be done now. Eight days is far to much time to be spending on a single short story.

Alas, the world is not a reasonable place sometimes.

See, I live in Ferguson. So all of the recent unrest over the shooting of Michael Brown has drawn my attention quite acutely away from other matters. Such as writing. The entire situation is a terrible tragedy, and a situation that I feel wholly unqualified to speak on, even after having had several days to consider what I might say.

Mayhaps I will have something substantive to say about the matter later on. For now, however, I pray for peace and rationality in this situation, and that those who would take advantage of a chaotic time for their own selfish interests might rethink their actions.
