It’s May, almost June!

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog.

The California Supreme Court released their ruling on Proposition 8. Their ruling was unsurprising, uninspired, and lacked any originality.

There’s a video at the end of this post that appropriately anchors my feelings.

Then there are whackjobs who want to go to the local U.S. consulate or Embassy to protest. Really… will that actually do anything? No! The court won’t change its mind. And if Canada had done something like this, no one would be protesting at our Embassies or Consulates. Protests are so 1998. Try something more creative, like YouTube.

Also the implications for atheists isn’t all that great. I’m not an Atheist, but it can affect everyone. It isn’t the final straw in California, but more advances may delay due to the ruling.

Oh, and GayPatriot: You’re wrong. They err’d so very badly when it comes to state law.

Updates to my stories are coming along, somewhat slowly. My Boyfriend is a Vampire is slower to write, due to inspiration, etc. HIH should have another update soon, though. It likes to go slow, so it wouldn’t pull a California Surpeme Court.

What else is new? My editor Rilbur finished his exams, so hopefully not only will he have time to edit for me, but he’ll have time to write his own exceptional story.

Yesterday I decided to challenge some pre-conceived notions. I can do this because I too am an author. You may or may not have read the exceptional story The Brotherhood by X. It’s an amazing story. The problem is, X only updates the story once every 6 months or so. It’s frustrating. So on his Yahoo! Group a few people like to whine and complain about the lack of updates. This usually gets attacked by the those who think that because X doesn’t get paid, that they don’t have a right to complain.

I disagree.

While I know my own updates have been slow and all, unless I end up injured or otherwise unable to write, I doubt you’ll have to wait 6 months for a story I write. Even if I have to write a bad conclusion, I will try to finish the story. The way X writes, the story may not be finished for another 10 years.

I believe that we as writers have an obligation to finish a story. Even if we’re not getting paid. We created this obligation on ourselves by publishing the first chapter. If we weren’t sure, we should wait until the story is done before we publish. I tried to do this with HIH, but my own wanting to get it out took over.

So X is wrong, and he needs to publish his damn story already.
