The Weekly Man Presents

It’s been over two months since I completed serializing The Weekly Man: The World’s First Free Daily Serialized Coffee Break Novel and after spending 72 days, every day, including weekends, upwards of three hours posting and marketing the novel…being at the mercy of the daily technology hurdle and building my life around the serialization, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll never do anything like this again.

At least not for 72 days. I think that was the biggest mistake: it went on for too long. It became a draining process after the first month. I’m sure that the daily announcements for new episodes started to look like spam in social media outlets. They started to feel like spam to me.

I’m working on a series of articles inspired by those 72 days of joy and hell and at the same time, I’m working on a print and ebook version of the novel. One thing I learned is that you can never finish re-writing a novel. But I’ll get into that in one of the articles. The print version is turning out to be almost a full re-write but it should be on sale sometime this summer or fall.

I’m going to leave the free one up, both the blog and smart phone versions, for those who don’t mind scrolling up and down a blog or opening 72 separate PDFs.

And to top it all off, I’m starting a newsletter to keep people informed, throw a few contests and give stuff away under The Weekly Man Presents logo. That should be ready early to mid-spring.

In the meantime, get through winter as best you can and remember…somewhere on this planet, at this exact moment, a warm wind is caressing the fronds of a palm tree.

Wrote this over 10 years ago for a collaborative exhibition between the BlackTop MotorCycle Gang writer’s collective and the Emerge artists collective. The writers wrote a short piece of no more than one page (though some ventured beyond the borders and into areas of madness when it came to assembling the art and the writing printouts) and they could be prose or poetry…or verbal rants using words and stuff.

The artists created visual art based on their interpretation of the written art. A few years later, we did the opposite (with the visual art produced first) and we all got each other back. 🙂

I used words and stuff in mine. It’s what I call a not-poem. What’s a not-poem? It’s defined somewhere in one of my blogs, but I think the best way to show you what it is would be to show you what it is.
