Rish Outcast 8: TF PSA and Ramblings

A month or so back, I turned on my recorder, meaning to talk about something else, but ended up talking about losing my story "A Lovely Singing Voice."  I gave myself a deadline in that recording how long I would leave it a "lost work," and figured I ought to post it, even though I usually include stories in this thing (I refer to a story that I meant to have published by now, but will have to show up next).

Hopefully salvaging some of this episode, I'm also including a Public Service Announcement I created, thinking we'd use it on the Dunesteef.  It may be entertaining, may be perplexing, or may be just more flapping of my jaw.  Either way, here is Rish Outcast number 8 (seems too complicated to call this one number 9 and call the next one 8 when I get it edited). 

One day, I may have time to do these on a more regular basis.

Rish, this is awkward. I am the Marshal Latham from the future, well actually an alternate future. I am stunned that I found the divergence point. You see, in my future, you are a famous spec fic author, one who paved the way for a new golden age of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, especially horror. Unfortuneately it was this lost story you described about the girls at the aquarium that jettisoned you off to stardom. Maybe you should try to write the story again, or like you said, write it better, or from a different angle. Who knows, my future could be your future. Anyway, good luck with the live blogging. It does become the main publishing model where I come from.

Losing writing like that does make you want to eviscerate something with a rusty spoon. On the occasions when I have had to rewrite from memory (and then found the original later), it usually turns out either better or eerily the same. It's not as much fun the second time, but it's just as good. Of course, if you rewrite it or find it now, you kind of have to share it.
