Blog #408 - Essay Submitted!!!
A five month chapter comes to an end.

On Saturday I completed my meteorite-horror essay and submitted it to my editor. The ending word count, including endnotes and footnotes, is 7,057 words – yet I still lack a title. The next steps are of course to await and incorporate edits and hopefully to see print at the end of this year.

I'm still early in my writing career, this will be my second essay published in a book, but having the project more-or-less completed is a huge weight off me. Though the results are not instantly manifest, I still feel like I've accomplished something big, or at least big to me.

There's of course reflection. Five months of research and composition to pen an essay that is barely over 7,000 words in length. With my first essay published back in 2014, this has me thinking that I am not being productive enough with my own writing. Granted, I've attached obligations to writing reviews to the Heathen Harvest publication, but I look at some of my other peers and writer friends who are much more prolific.

So I am not sure how to take it, perhaps something to improve on. As I write more, I will “write more” if that makes sense?

The time has come now to cash in the 2 essay promise to myself. I said once I was in two book, the time would be for me to compose my own. So in the coming months I am going to align myself, get my ducks in a row and submit a proposal to a publisher for a book I have in mind. No details quite yet (though personal acquaintances may know what book I have in mind).

But I shall not stay static, a tiny respite this week before I dive into the next few projects which include:

**Composing and submitting an academic review for “The Art of Rube Goldberg” to the Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics at Taylor and Francis

**Composing a short story about the Cats of Ulthar for a call for stories for an upcoming anthology

**Begin preliminary research on an essay for a possible upcoming book on Weird-Westerns. I would be submitting a proposal for “Beast of Hollow Mountain” and “Gwanji.”

**Reviews and Interview for Heathen Harvest

Speaking of, I just had a review published there on a vinyl of spoken words of the H.P. Lovecraft short stories “The Hound” and “The Music of Erich Zann.” This review can be read here:

For fun, I been catching up on my reading, such as Beth Cato's "The Clockwork Crown" and playing "Shovel Knight" on the Xbox One. Oh, how eager am I for the new "Doom" game to come out.

The rest of February looks to be extremely busy: Michele and I got invited to be part of a music video this upcoming weekend, and there is the Long Beach Comic Expo and other obligations as well. However for tonight, I'll afford myself a little bit of laziness.
