Seven hundred forty-six days have passed since I created Fictional Machines dot com and started sharing various forms of creativity on the internet. I had no idea at that time that I would have nearly two thousand subscribers after two years of work– And I truly apologize for the lack of activity here the last few weeks!
After creating and sharing the first few installments of the new ‘Mysteries of the Wasteland’ series I was contacted by a group that was curious as to where the story was going & they wanted to know if I was interested in publishing something like this down the road rather that just sharing it for free on the web. Although this was great news it abruptly shattered my plans for the foreseeable future and, unfortunately, caused yet another tale to be abandoned [For now] on this website [?!].
So here is the new plan– No more attempts will be made to share long, ongoing stories here until they are available in print. I have decided that I will start posting something here every single day for as long as I can sustain such activity– But each post will be self contained. Some will have writing incorporated, some will not. One day it might be a short story, the next it could be an ink drawing or a new painting, or a single photograph, etc.
I am going to spend the spring / summer transforming Fictional Machines into a more conventional blog of sorts while continuing work on the next round of art shows, the various book projects and all of the other stuff that occupies my time [Like the possibility of hosting a radio show and maybe even shooting a film in the near future].
Anyway, I have returned. I hope everyone is doing well out there and thank you for all of the support!
