My Apologies

I've been terrible getting back to my favorite bloggers. For those of you who read this blog, I'm sorry. For those of you who don't, oh well. The truth is, I don't know if I'll be getting any actual reading time for any blogs. I haven't read a single page off a book in months, and now even reading short blog stories is becoming a chore.

For those of you interested, here's what's been going on.

December was a great month for D4AM, it was the month I started making plans in advance for my little chunk of internet. I started getting just enough emails per week to not have to really research anything and just skip ahead to writing. January followed through with some pretty cool opportunities. To start things off, I got emails from Sony's record labels. Then Atlantic Records came through. Come march I was receiving 4-8 emails per day. I'd say the ratio of quality music is every one in three emails. I'm still getting around to submissions made early April.

Early motherfucking April, motherfuckers.

Month old emails are waiting for my go-ahead, and there's tons more piling up. I'm getting emails from artists personally asking for help and exposure, as well as from their managers and representatives. I've made friends, I've pissed a few people off, and I've gained enough attention to start racking in over a dozen emails per day now.

It seems after I wrote that one screenplay, everything was looking so good that everyone and their mothers wanted in on it. I do enjoy time off, though, so I've been creating a system. The future of D4AM is more than D4, I'm getting a team of writers together to tackle on all the emails and turn D4AM into an e-zine. For now all I offer is exposure, but I look forward to offering pay in the not-so-distant future.

Until that future arrives I'm gonna be swamped. I've got a couple of writers on my side and quite frankly, that's not enough. No promises for when I get around to your blogs, or even if I'll comment when I read them (like I've been doing lately.) For this all, I apologize.

I'm not used to apologizing for being awesome.
