Trapped Between the Scylla and Charybdis

04 Jan

Welcome to 2011!  The title of this post comes from Homer’s the Odyssey, or alternatively from the Police’s Wrapped Around Your Finger, and I think it aptly describes my current condition.  I am currently “trapped” in that I’m still looking for a new place to live.  Hopefully that situation will be dealt with by the end of the month.

I am also “trapped” by writing.  I’m not suffering from writer’s block – just the opposite; I have too many stories stuck in my head!  I’m currently in the middle of a half dozen stories – one is set in my fantasy setting of Xalishan involving an assassin hired to murder a wizard, another is a hardboiled crime drama about a murdered anthropologist, a third is about two teens in a haunted house… the list just goes on.  All of the stories are fascinating to me, but it’s hard to keep focus on just one.  I’ll be writing and suddenly a sentence or two for one of the other stories will pop into my head.  It’s very distressing.

In any case, this year will be a good one.  It’s a new beginning for me.
