Count me in

Apparently I'm a writer again. Actually, I never stopped thinking of myself as a writer, although to earn the title one should really do some actual writing, which I had completely stopped doing six months ago. But on the last two Saturday mornings, I finally started working on my Marshfield collection again, which is going well enough that I intend to stick with it. Another clue that I'm back into writing is that I just volunteered for Mediabistro's "The World's Longest Literary Vampire Remix" project, in which contributors rewrite Varney the Vampire, a bestselling 19th Century vampire novel. I enjoyed working on Mediabistro's 2010 remix project, in which I rewrote a passage from Horatio Alger's Joe's Luck, swapping out several of Alger's characters in favor of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. I have absolutely no idea what I'll do for my vampire rewrite, but I hope something will come to me once I get my assigned section. I wonder if anyone will rewrite it with the characters of Twilight (which won't be me, though, since I haven't read the books).

Good news all the way around it seems!

Tentatively. Let's see how diligent I am on both of these projects.
