Works In Progress: What? Me Worry Edition…

Hello!

The above image is from an upcoming interview for Underground Book Reviews with Morissa Schwartz of GenZ Publishing. Alfred E. Neuman just sums up this past month as I watch the news. There’s a serial sexual predator in the White House, a suspected pedophile and racist with a good chance to bring to life the worst of every Southern stereotype with an even better than 50/50 chance of getting voted in as senator, and a man who was, at worst, an admitted masher leaving the senate, and at best the most logical man in DC… and he’s bowing out.

Damn god thing that I’m unemployed. I don’t know how I could drag myself to work and listen to my co-worker and their tribal and/or uneducated viewpoints. 

But I did drag myself to the “typewriter” every day in November and write a little more  each day about Cecil and Jinx, an alligator and cat in love in the storyverse, Aesop’s World, where I usually write my darker noir. My Brooklyn Blackie stories and Unbalanced Scales all take place in this universe (plug: These stories will be collected in Jaffa’s books COLD BLOOD, coming soon). I am desperately trying to keep bad things from happening to these two… but you know me. Nothing says love like blood and mayhem.

I am also working on a TF Xmas Story XChange for my TF mailing list. It’s a cool tradition the list has where we write a story for one another. It’s inspiring and it helps a writer stretch a bit to write with one target reader in  mind. I’ll post it here after its completed, if someone requests it. My target this year… transformation into a cartoon character.

And there’s all the usual fun of job seeking, too! But I’ll concentrate on that on which I can control. I volunteer locally and I really encourage that for anyone who is as concerned as I am (or more) with how things are shaping up.
