I have a plan. I want to write short stories regularly, instead of constantly working on the “Great Novel” that other writers are always trying to write. Here is the first short story, on Amazon as an ebook for $2.99. Feedback is most definitely appreciated.
A short story about an author’s life long struggle with greatness and mediocrity. William’s journey from aspiring young boy to world renown author is not without it’s consequences and love and friendship is found, lost and searched for throughout.
So much good music to put on this month’s playlist, some will have to wait for later mixes. It’s been an incredible July, and I hoped this list could capture everything, but I don’t know if it did. Nonetheless, some fantastic music for the month.
I picked up ballet only a year and a half ago. I often wish I had more time to devote to study. But it’s performances like this that force a deeper wish to turn the clock back and start young. Miss Alexzander moves with weightless grace, and without a single ballet class I wouldn’t recognize the skill, work, dedication and talent necessary to make it all appear so effortless.
I found this in a search for practice videos. If I’m ever asked why I moved from martial arts to ballet, I’m tempted to explain with a two minute and forty-nine second video.
This month has a few new releases, some new bands and a timely metal cover of “Rains of Castamere” for all the Game of Thrones watchers. There’s a lot of indie pop on here (Knives, Alpines, Mowgli’s), and a new release by Orbital, a band I haven’t thought much about since the late 90′s. Nothing too personal, and some of the more downtempo and melodramatic songs fit a cold, dreary June that feels more like April.
