OK to start of with the platonic friendships and synchronicity. Over the last month or so I have had three separate people bring up the fact that I have close relationships with a lot of females and that can be misconstrued. The first was about a month ago and the last 2 were this week. Here is the deal. I have always had more female friends that male friends. Why. Women, on average, are cooler than men. They are often smarter or at least more verbal. They are usually more emotionally intelligent. Real friendships, the deep meaningful kind should be based on real connections. That takes understanding and communication. I find that easier in women than in men. Melissa and I are both comfortable with the fact we have close friends of the opposite sex. She had a Man of honor at our wedding. And I had a groomswoman and a female friend sign/witness the ketubah signing. Melissa and I have complete trust in one another. And here is the deal I have never cheated on anyone in my life. I’m not saying I didn’t have wild promiscuous single days, because I did. But never while in a relationship. With out trying to sound to arrogant, I’m a fairly nice looking guy who has had plenty of opportunities to cheat. I never have and I wouldn’t start with my wife and mother of my children. So yes I have a lot of female friends. Some are very attractive, but I have no intention or desire to sleep with any of them. OK enough said.
My server crash made me very nervous. I’m never going to remember to back up every day and I want to keep a log of the drafts, as they develop and change over time. I’m thinking about putting them in Ebook format and putting them on my site. These will just be drafts with no graphics. I don’t want to hurt my chance of actually getting these published when I decide to look for an agent and/or publisher so I am a little wary. But these are just drafts and without animations. My plan is to put some of the smaller ones together in a series of vignettes. With the bigger one’s as stand alone e-books. I’m not going to charge per download, but I will put up a paypal tip box on the download page. If you think it’s worth a dollar or two, feel free, or just enjoy and wait for the more formal product. But I would appreciate a Facebook like on the Egret Fan Page. If anyone in the industry thinks this is a bad idea, let me know.
