The One After Chemistry

I finally finished chemistry. I got a B and was glad to get it. I finished in May, and still didn't get around to blogging until now. And in this time between, I have come to realize something. Using my own name, there is very little that I am not too timid and far too afraid of offending people (or having them think me totally uncool) to write my honest opinions about. And I realized I needed to stop wasting time trying to overcome these fears, or trying to find really neutral things to write about. Because most really neutral things are really boring, and I've been trying to overcome these fears all my life. I realized what I really needed to do, if I wanted to talk about things that matter to me, is to blog under a pseudonym. I will still try to occasionally make entries here, because they assure me that it helps one's writing career to have a blog site.
And while I'm here, I might as well note that I've started another novel. It's something of a sequel to Arden's Act, which I'm still shopping around. I wanted to do a Civil War romance novel, but do it from the Northern perspective. I'm going to set it in Michigan.
And while I'm on the subject of my writing, I did recently publish my little middle school book, Confessions of a Mixed-Up Weasel Hater, as an e-book, both for Kindle and Nook. I've sold a grand total of 3 e-copies, one to myself, because I wanted to see how bad the e-file was. Messed up all my paragraph indentations, and for this I apologize. While publicizing this event, however, I apparently sold a few more hard copies...
And while I'm on the subject of Kindles, I got one. Now I carry temptation with me daily.
