I'm Brian K. Vagnini

What I'm doing now

as of 2/23/18

I got divorced about 10 months ago. It was a good decision for the both of us, as we are both much happier now. I still have a speaking relationship with her and my child, so it's all good.

I'm working on writing more short stories, for a collection tentatively called "Mostly Dead: A short story collection".

I have revitalized my interest in art, although my drawing skills are still poor. Looking at doing more block printing, and the converse of that, digital painting.

I've been on more road trips in the last ten months than I have in years (mostly concerts, although I have Pensacon coming up this February, which I'm excited about).

I'm trying to live up to my three words, which, for this year, are : Reduce, Engage, Create

I reduced stress in my life with the divorce, I'm reducing the amount of crap that I own (which is WAY too much, learned only after having to move all of it), and I'm reducing the negativity in my life (I've been off of Facebook for almost a week and I honestly feel better).

I joined a writers group, engaging in my community. It's done wonders for my psyche, as well as my output, as I hate not having anything to bring to the group for critique.

I'm writing more in the past 10 months than I have in the last three or four years, and writing more consistently, which is more important to me.

Music has taken a slight back burner, although I've done some music for the Leon County Sheriff's Office. Speaking of work, I currently work as a Technical Trainer & Documentation Coordinator for Reliant Solutions, here in Tallahassee, FL.
