I have started a couple of other blogs in addition to this one. They will serve as venues for some of the more creative stuff I'm doing these days. The first, Please, Not While I'm Eating, is where my collection of essays and musings about food and my childhood is taking shape. I've only gotten through the first part of Chapter 1, but I'm liking where it's heading in my head so far.
The second, Catharine's Fiction, is where I've started to put my short stories as they come about. I've begun a new short story there, entitled Vision, and I have absolutely no idea where it's going at this point -- just that I have two strong characters ( a homeless semi-amnesiac and the Virgin Mary), an environment, and an event. What becomes of it all, we'll just have to discover together.
One thing I should point out, for the sake of clarity. I carry the "Creative Commons" copyright symbol on this website -- you'll find that in the sidebar as well. Clicking the icon will explain beautiful what I will and won't allow with regard to the posts directly to the Chron. I think it's all pretty fair, and I'm open to allowing unrestricted use, provided my permission is obtained beforehand.
The two other blogs are another matter entirely. All rights are unconditionally reserved to both of them. Their content is completely copyrighted and no reproduction or duplication of anything that appears on those blogs is allowed without my direct, written consent. But, hey, all this is written on those blogs. Why be a downer, huh? Why kill the joy, harsh the mellow, and poop on the party.
Let's watch Catharine be creative, as if she were in a fishbowl or a circus or something. It's reality. Isn't that what we're looking for these days? Isn't this exciting? Aren't you on the edge of your seat? Well, hold on tight, darlings.... It could get a little turbulent before it's all done.
