As one door closes, another door opens.
Into each life some rain must fall.
In order to make an omelette, you have to break some eggs.
Actually, I have no idea about that last one, but I'll ask my loyal manservant, Javier.
As per my previous message, things are moving on in the fiction business. A novel or two, some short stories, it's all going on.
That being the case, I am hereby moving my online presence over to jonpayne.org.
I pledge to keep blogging over there with news of my fiction activities. And, if you're very lucky, and I'm having a slow week, I promise occasionally to drop in an illuminating blog post about the shape of American states or my own vulgar take on TV healthcare ads or hilarious gifts one can buy for ones pets online.
It's been an almost-decade of on-and-off merriment, illumination and discovery. I hope you've enjoyed it half as much as I have. If not, I'll settle for a third.
So, here's your mission, should you choose to accept it: please join me at:
jonpayne.org for all my fiction writing activities;
@jon7payne for my writing-related tweeting.
Let me close with a few words from the Grateful Dead: "What a long, strange trip it's been". Amen.
