The last two weeks have been glorious. The ride on the cloud was joyful, the view picturesque, the companions wonderful. Things would have been even better if during the second week of the cloud ride my left tonsil would have not tried to sabotage my happiness by assuming the appearance of a ripe cherry, but all is good – I can still kiss as well as any man.
The view from the cloud
I started with a 75,000 word story about Oliver Colors, the moonbeamed painter, and the mean Katherine Frost, and the plan was to trim it to around 60,000. However, the story has grown to 85,000 words. I have added to it a Shakespearean dimension, without planning to – it just happened. This addition might have sprinkled magic on it, or ruined it completely. It is too early to tell…
Over the next months I will keep tinkering with it, but for now I will leave it be for a while.
Back to earth
During my disconnect I realized how fond I have become of this journal and of you. So I decided to make some improvements.
The domain name has changed to vincentmars.com. Vincent Mars will be my pen name. Does it sound good?
I have also purchased a premium theme, Elemin, which is much like the old Manifest, but has a two-column layout and more customization options. It is also more polished.
I like the new look, but I really want to know what you make of it. I will not keep it if you do not like it.
