My Love

I would love to write a novelization of Queensrÿche's Operation: Mindcrime. I wonder, though, if that would be too fanfic-ish. I wonder more if I could really do it justice. I don't want to set aside my novel, as I've still got a lot of work left on it, but I don't want to get stuck on it and only it. I don't know if I should have one project or many projects. And that's not even considering my bigger projects, like Getting back to Cornell (finding housing, getting readmitted, getting and maintaining a job). And aside from laundry, I've made almost no progress in Foucault's Pendulum, despite the fact that I'm enjoying it immensely.

I don't know... my writing doesn't feel very 'literary'.

Props to Joe for hooking my game ass up on the History Channel's Secret Passages. There were three episodes last night, and surely enough, the very first one included the tunnels below Paris. I was kind of disappointed that they crammed a whole (I almost typed "cram[med] a hole", which I guess would be the little brother of "grow a hole") bunch of places into each episode... I would have thought that they'd devote at least half an hour to each place.

How do I know what a cartographer is? I paid attention in fourth grade. Does that make me smart? I'unno. *shrug*

Hmm... I should buy this album for my dad's fiftieth birthday present, if he lives that long. That and a copy of my latest book. I might even autograph it.

I am thinking about subscribing to Discover, possibly Popular Science and maaaaybe Scientific American. I need science, even if I decide to stay away from [mainstream] sci-fi for awhile. I'm more of a horror or surrealist author, even though I never cared much for horror (and still don't). Maybe not surrealist as much as magic realist.

    This is an essay I wrote but never shared after *last* year's #ComingOutDay. I touched it up a little, but it's still very rough (I've learned a…
