Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
That’s the day I started What The Hell. Five years ago today.
Long-time readers might remember that I started the blog as a way of dipping my toe into the mysterious waters of self-publishing. I had just stumbled onto Smashwords and Amazon KDP, and you know what I said? I said, “What the hell. Try it.” And I put myself on a five-year plan.
Here’s what I’ve done since 4/26/13:
2013: Yesterday Road
2014: Occasional Soulmates
2015: Town Father
2017: In No Particular Order
I’ve also written over 1500 blog posts, probably half a million words or better. A lot of them were goofy, but I like to share my goofy shit if only to show another side. That’s right: I’m not just the darkly profound author of Parts Unknown.
I’ve written twenty-one original songs. At least twenty-two “Haiku for the Hell of It’s.” Plenty of humorous verse. A long piece on the state of fiction in this boilerplate culture of ours. And I gave you this to think about.
After all that, it’s time for a hiatus as I figure out what happens next. Meanwhile, please follow, support, and submit your offbeat poems, stories, and essays to The Disappointed Housewife.
You can always reach me at kevinbrennan520(at)gmail(dot)com if you feel like chatting. And if you’re a writer seeking editorial help, don’t forget I’m always around for that too.
My five-year plan is complete. As they say in Italy on momentous occasions like this, Il mio aliscafo è pieno di anguille.
