The Future of Bridge

It's time to update the five or so readers who still follow this blog on the future. Specifically, the future of this blog and my writing. The good news is that there will be a future. The relative silence of the last few months can be chalked up to general procrastination and my continuing addiction to video games and Tivo'ed television. But I have not been a completely idle layabout. There has been writing. I'm currently putting the finishing touches on a short story that is loosely connected to the Bridge tales. I've an entire week and a half of time off of work for the upcoming Christmas holidays, time I intend to spend finishing that story and beginning the next Bridge novel. Entitled The Know Circuit, the intention is to release it on the one-year anniversary of the release of Under the Amoral Bridge. So expect the first chapter somewhere around Jan. 31, 2009.

The format will vary slightly. One of the criticisms of the novel is based on the format. The blog format is not conducive to long chapters, and I am at times rather long-winded. Rather than one chapter every two weeks, I am structuring the novel in smaller, more bite-sized chunks. Hopefully, this will serve two purposes. It will be easier to read in a blog-like sitting, and it should allow me to release chapters/parts on a more frequent basis. I'm aiming for an output of 2-chunks-per-week. We'll see how that works.
