So I didn’t really write today, although I did read a lot. Tee Morris (of the Ministry of the Peculiar Occurrences) and I are co-editing an anthology in memory of PG Holyfield, called “Tales of a Tesla Ranger: The Adventures of PG Holyfield” and I was editing stories for that. I have an original Pendragon story in there, Tee has a story, and there are some amazing stories in there as well. I’m not giving any more details yet, but if you were at the memorial tonight, you heard about it.
But I was also thinking tonight about lost opportunities. PG will never get to write again. We’ll never get another Aramas Kragen story. We’ll never get him reading anymore. So here is my plea tonight:
Don’t wait. Don’t wait for “tomorrow” because it never comes. Make the time NOW to do what makes your heart sing. Share your passions with your friends. Let what makes you YOU out into the world.
I’m taking my own advice. There will be an announcement coming up very soon about the Pendragon Case Files, so keep your eyes peeled here. There is more fiction coming.
I have stories to share, and I don’t know how much time I have left. So thank you, PG, for teaching me to be proud of my geekiness, and I just wish you didn’t have to die to teach me it.
I miss you, PG. I miss you, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop.
