The Rock Philosopher has been indisposed for the last year taking up space on a planet called Jersey. He'll be back somewhere sometime.
In case you missed the Facebook posts I started a new blog for creative writing. My eyes are pretty much healed and I am looking at the horizon to get a job, get a life and get on outta here. Without the love and support of my amazing family and friends, I would not be where I am today. Shout out to my amazing mom and big brother Phil - they carried me and now it's time for the bird to fly.
Back in September, I went to Denton, Texas and had a blast. On my last day there, I met a bassist named Dave Rummel from the Dallas band Matthew J and the Science and went to his band practice in the Big D. I am writing about that experience now. That will most likely appear on this blog and not the new creative writing blog.
I also have numerous writing projects to attend to including a crowdsourced idea called "The Case of Red 86: a Bangkok Noir." That will appear on the creative writing site.
On the job front, I am eyeballing jobs in Asia particularly South Korea as they include a flight. The required documents take several weeks/months to get so this may mean I can't get back to Asia until early next year.
I'd love to be back in Bangkok but would need some job security before I left. Moreover, a visa and work permit are at top of concerns. If anyone has suggestions let me know. It's been almost a year since I left.
I am looking to get out of Jersey and head west, work, while my visa documents are processed. Getting back to Bangkok in the most roundabout way probably via the American west.
I have also conceived idea for a book of short fiction: flash fiction, microfiction, vignettes and short shorts called Painting Pictures With Words. Could use a graphics designer for this project as well the blog. I began putting together an Indiegogo campaign.
Do you need a creative writer? Contact me as I am looking for freelance writing work.
Here's the new blog: http://dccreativewriting.weebly.com/
May be heading to Austin real soon.
I love you all. I miss you all. I hope to see you soon.
