After maintaining radio silence for two months, it’s about time I give you an update. I’ve spent some time trying to focus on some personal issues, rather than my weekly blog entries. I think I’ve actually been quite successful, to be honest. Rather than writing weekly articles that get ignored by a handful of people on the Internet, I’ve managed to write an entire novel that’s been ignored by every agent and publisher who represents fantasy literature, and dozens of job applications that have been ignored by dozens of schools who don’t want the hassle of hiring someone smarter and more qualified than anyone they’ve got working there already! I mean, let’s be honest…why hire someone unconventional to challenge your students when you could just put your students in a room with one teacher who refuses to change methods from the last fifty years and just hope that this year it’ll turn out better than before? (Cue Dr. Evil’s theme song…)
To quote from my collection of worthless advice I’ve been given over the years, “It’s their loss.”
Yeah, well, who do you think you’re talking to? I’m not in a position to be altruistic enough to care whether other people win or lose. When I’m still unemployed, all that matters is it’s my loss too.
So it seems the universe is making a huge deal about how little I actually matter, and even though I’ve still got a project underway (about 60% of a play about four strippers pulling a bank heist), I’m torn between continuing in that vein, or going back to writing humor for the three or four of you who weren’t scared away when your Google search for “Tifa Hentai’ led you to the wall of text I usually churn out like exhaust from a redneck’s truck.
So starting March 5, I’ll once more be posting, hopefully at least once every other week, and more if I feel inspired.
