Hey....

I've been all over the place lately. At the beginning of the summer I was plowing through the Needles, Names, and Numbers drafts, ultimately banging out six of the ten stories before I hit a wall. I started rethinking things, trying new ideas, and ended up with two stories that read more like pieces of other stories than their own standalone work. So I said fuck it and started writing the fictional stories I've been eeking out for the last two months or so.

It dawned on me fairly recently how stupid it is to start a new project whose ending you aren't even sure on when you've got another one whose rough draft is almost there. I just got sick of telling my own stories and got burnt out. I also kinda felt like I had to put out some sort of new shit just to keep my blog 'relevant' (whatever that means) and to keep churning out content. 

So now I'm refocusing on the NNN project. What you guys don't know is that I've written the stories of my last few years of drug use in so many different formats and incarnations that never saw the light of day. That's why I kinda got sick of writing them. I also tend to bounce around a lot when I write, hence why I've delivered my story in fragments from random periods of my life rather than just telling it in order as it happened. I've always had a nasty habit of starting a project, going all out on it, and then abandoning it completely, even if I've invested a significant amount of time and energy into it. This time is different, though, since I actually have an audience I'm writing for now. 

So yeah. I'm not gonna promise a release date or anything as I've been browsing cover artists and the good ones don't come cheap. It's gonna take me a bit to get the cash together since I want this thing done right. The Kindle marketplace is saturated enough as it is and I want this thing to stand out. I was also thinking about maybe doing a special edition of the book somewhere down the line that includes all the stories from the blog placed among the ones from the book in order, just for the people that want all the stuff in one place. But these are all just ideas, and ideas are nice, but I need to make something of them already, for fuck's sake. 

Thanks for your patience, 

-Harry

  5. You are a great writer. I read your blog over the weekend and your style is everything I need in a good story. And being able to relate to the content is oddly comforting. Please please keep on truckin'.
