Cranked up the synthesizers and played until stumbling into a sound, and then, a rhythm. Layered the tracks and demoed. Then, realized the second half of the song would have to be like the first, only slightly different. Things that are chiral are quite similar, yet, are not mirror images.

I think it’s time I start interviewing some other writers now, including the awesome and talented Nerine Dorman. I mean that seriously, and not in some pat on a fellow artist’s back kind of thing like you see on the Oscars. Check out this fun interview from her blog, This Is My World.

And that’s precisely what Beazo needed to be.

Just sharing my excitement! I’m currently lined up for three new anthologies scheduled to publish throughout 2014. And I’m laying the groundwork for my first long form book combining the collaborative efforts of some very talented people. More news to come on that project in the near future. So far, 2014 is becoming a great year to look forward to.
