of apples and autumn and music and writing

Chuck Wendig has given his followers a flash fiction challenge using a list of uncommon apple varieties.  I don’t do flash fiction.  On the other hand, apples.  Because, y’know, that character who grew up on a farm outside Mistinghill, one of the towns near Haefenspoint…  I’m taking this as a sign from Murphy that I should write stuff for Project Brimstone today.  Or Changing Magic.  Or even the sequel to “that novel.”  Doesn’t matter as long as I focus on RS as viewpoint character.

(This is where I express annoyance that the iTunes online store doesn’t have “Life in a Northern Town” by Dream Academy.  It would be perfect right about now.  *sigh*  On the other hand, this wouldn’t be the first time I found what I needed on YouTube for getting me in the right mindset for writing.)


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    This looks great. If real life gives me a chance, I will be trying this. I’ve only written on piece longer than 100 words and that was just a few weeks ago. So… challenge and a half. I used the random number generator. My apples? Orleans Reinette (hooker?), Macoun and Golden Pearmain. The last one will be tough. Pub?
