Dear World

Please Kill Me,

Welcome back my warriors of written word, dribbling verbs, and greasy keyboards. I trust the corpse of your Monday lays cold beneath the feet of your ongoing existence. (Deeper than I meant to get #seriousjokes).

So the first day as a civilian went decently well -especially when compared to my mid chapter hiatuses (#glug #glug #whopissedmypants). It began simply enough. Work. Home. Staring at the television for 2 hours -inconsolibly guilt ridden.

Okay, so it was boring. “Holy Shit! My life without writing is boring.”

That thought was immediately followed by “But I know how to make it awesome”.

A little filler for those who may be lost right now. I recently finished a novel, and while it’s being edited I’m struggling to determine my next literary endeavor (since statistically speaking, the first book usually sinks faster than the Titanic. Too soon?).

I reached out to a few of you for ideas based on some of the short stories that I had posted on here. Not much progress on the ol’ home front there, but I get it. Hard enough you’ve got your own shit. It’s a little selfish of me to ask that you care about wiping my ass too. Let’s make up. Mwah 😙.

However, after wallowing in self pity (for an embarrassing amount of time) I said fuck it, and dove right the hell back into the thick of it (as I now recommend EVERYONE DO! Lest the muses abandon you.)

This time, I’m going to try something a little different though. Along with the novel (and subsequent ideas for future ones) I’ve written several short stories that I would like to expand on, possibly to be a part of my very own anthology collection.

Hell Yea! I’ve got my new thing, and life is awesome again. Also sorry for this post being a bit self-indulgent. But hey 🍆🍆🍆 – at least you’re leaving here with #eggplants.

Becoming Utopia is on the way. I’m still extremely excited about that, and I hope you all are as well. As always I will keep you posted.

Also for those of you in the arena who are fans of the Top Ten, tune in later this week for another installment of “So You Wanna be a Writer”.

That’s it for today kiddies. Beat up Tuesday, like it stole your lunch money.

All over again,

-Antwan Crump.

  1. I’ve been meaning to read your short stories and novel excerpts, but I’m busy with a really fun project, I’m developing a television show. It’s only for the local community TV station so far, but I want to grow it into something bigger. It’s a lot of work, but it does get your work out there. And let’s face it, more people watch TV than read. 😀
