How Blogging Works

August 8, 2009

Either: slave away over the keyboard searching for pithy insights into the creative life, trying to shine a small light on how all this stuff works.  Persuade yourself that, over time, people will begin to see the merit of your ponderous musings and start coming back regularly.

Or: post a video of your daughter eating ice cream and see the number of hits QUINTUPLE OVERNIGHT.


A New Man?

July 24, 2009

I feel like a new man.

Not sure if anyone remembers this post, but after much thought and deliberation, it has been decided by the powers-that-be that henceforth I shall be A.H. George. Not exactly an earth-shattering difference. Still, I like the initials. And it is still me.
(Although I did like someone’s idea of using the very rock n’ roll Axel George.)
In other news, the American literary agent has been on vacation in Maine, which is why we have heard no news from that quarter. Soon, we hope.

Movin’ On

July 2, 2009

Just a quick note to announce that a new website, and new blog, are in the works. I have been spending the last few weeks polishing the manuscript and it’s about ready to go back to Bruce the Agent, and out to publishers.

Also, we’re off to France for two weeks as of tomorrow. Am debating whether or not to blog about that. We’ll be meeting up with my parents, my sisters, and all their kids. It will be the first time we’ve all been together in some years. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
Doesn’t it?
