What’s crackin’, dearest reader? There’s a lot going on over here. As you may or may not know, I’ve been writing away for a very long time on who knows how many different projects, most seeming to have very little to do with any of the others. The result has been a disorganized shamble of a monstrosity of a digital vault. Despite the variety of ideas, there hasn’t been any idea that jumped out and grabbed me by the throat and said, “You must finish me immediately and unleash me upon the world.” Nothing has cried out to be unleashed. In fact, dealing with this has been more like having to take a few dozen ornery dogs for a walk every evening: after a while, just another chore.
But one project has made itself known as What I’m Supposed To Do Next. it didn’t grab me by the throat…it didn’t have to. It was more like a knowing look across a very crowded room.
So tomorrow I’m beginning 100 days of compiling, composing, filling in, taking out, and likely just thrashing the hell out of this thing and turning it into a book. The 100 days after that will be dedicated to selling the thing, completing and editing it, as well as beginning production on a companion podcast for the book. Which could be very interesting since I’m considering publishing the book anonymously (there are reasons), but obviously the podcast would be anything but. Even if I did publish it anonymously, I would be outed within a few weeks. But it could be fun. We’ll see. I can’t tell you what the next 100 days after that will be spent doing…at least not yet. But at the end of that, when I wake up on that 300th day, June 4, 2019, I’m going to open my eyes and look around. If I like what I see, then we’ll continue on. And if I don’t, I’m going to Fuck Off. Disappear. Maybe go back down to Tijuana, get a room at Adelita’s, and pickle my guts on bogus tequila and street meats until I die of either parasites and cirrhosis or in a shootout with the Federales in a huge blaze of bullshit.
Either way, it should be fun.
