Well, I’ve finished the first draft of ‘You Must Be,’ my story about personal identity and the roles we are asked to play in society. It must be about time for a birthday; this story is pure, unadulterated angst, but I think it works.
Also, it has a soundtrack; Fiona Apple’s unreleased songs ‘Extraordinary Machine’ and ‘A Better Version of Me.’
(Actually, all my stories have associated music. It would be a glorious day if I could release a soundtrack to a fiction anthology. I do want to write a book that has a designated soundtrack per chapter… And write a musical in which the music licensing would be so great that no one would ever be able to make it…)
Expect more news on this late next week when I massacre the first draft for the sake of the second.
(And I’m over my cold. Thanks for the concern, people…)
