All novels are sequels; influence is bliss.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
A film is a ribbon of dreams. The camera is much more than a recording apparatus; it is a medium via which messages reach us from another world that is not ours and that brings us to the heart of a great secret. Here magic begins.
A few facts and thoughts on the project thus far.
Pick it up, indeed.

Lots of you still don’t know about the ReWired Tales project, so here’s the quick rundown:
ReWired Tales is a hobby project in which I produce monthly fiction inspired by the pages of Wired magazine. Some stories are shorter than others.
ReWired Tales is not affiliated with Wired magazine. I merely read the magazine, get story ideas, then devise a tale each month as a means of earning writerly experience points. Each story comes in various ebook formats available via various online retailers.
Follow the ReWired Tales tumblr to be notified when and where new stories exist.
The next ReWired tale is up at Amazon, formatted for the Kindle. This one, “War Stars,” was inspired by the March issue of Wired magazine (with Star Wars and Chris Hardwick on the cover). The official synopsis goes like this:
Not long from now, in a war-torn city, a journalist embedded with a military force confronts a contrast between the wars we idolize and the wars we fight. Stranded in a blasted metropolis, the journalist travels with her wounded unit on a dangerous mission to use next-generation weaponry and support robots to locate and eliminate a hidden rebel base. But in the fog of war, the story we want isn’t always the story we get.
Previous ReWired Tales remain available on Amazon, too, via my author’s page.
