How My Writing Is Going This Week

iPad Writing Desk View

since I’ve been marketing my blog as a blog about creative writing, it’s probably a good idea to write about my writing some, huh? I’ve been blabbing and bragging all week about my successes with my business degree. I’ll probably do that a lot. Maybe I should write at least once a week about how my writing is going?

I must confess, I haven’t actually been able to start on any writing this week yet. In my defense, it’s only been a few days. Although, I do usually do some writing over the weekend and I didn’t do that this time, either. I have been busy with getting my documents in order after graduating with my MBA. (There I go again, bragging about the MBA!)

I am going to write some today when I get home from work. I have some stories already for my short story posts on Fridays, but I’ve still got to keep a good supply of those going so I need to get on the ball. There will also be another rougher draft of a story on my Patreon page this weekend. If you are interested in supporting me, for $3 a month you can see super early drafts of some of my stories every weekend. These drafts are super early, but if you’re interested in the writing process, I think it’s cool to see early stuff.

This was just a short update today, huh? I have to go into the office now for the day job.




leave me a comment below so that I’m not talking to the void. It would also be nice if the content reached past my ridiculously long sidebar 😉

I’m Eric Shay Howard and I’m a bad blogger. I’m also an author. I live in Louisville, Kentucky and work at a law firm.

I’m currently a graduate student in a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program. Lately, I’ve been blogging about that. I also have a Master of Business Administration and have completed a few certificate programs in Human Resource related studies. Occasionally I blog about business and other MBA-related things. Blogging about my day, bad dates, or package delivery issues are also not out of the question.

I wrote a fiction collection called Crushes and self-published it because sometimes I just like to push buttons and see what happens. I think this book is pretty alright, I suppose. Buying a copy helps me out. Feel free to leave a review on Amazon as well.

Blogs and People I Like

Here are some other blogs and people that I like to read or keep up with. The order is arbitrary because I started out going for alphabetical order but then got busy with classes or something so now sometimes I just rearrange them for no reason.

Equipment Test! Podcast Artwork

I made a really bad podcast over the summer called Equipment Test! because I bought a microphone. But if you like really bad podcasts, you can listen to it here, or find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other places.
