It is not that I have not been writing lately, I just have not been working on my projects. I have been pretty busy doing some freelance ghost writing, and it has kept me away from my main projects for a while.
I of course have the Phantasms project with Rikke, my own solo project (tentatively called Blood Lines), and the start of another project, but I also have some other ideas. I want to Narrate Rikke’s “Son of the Moon” as well as some creepy things off of Reddit.
I have been a little obsessed with Skinwalkers lately, after I discovered that the description closely fits what a friend of mine saw and even possibly what my sister’s husband saw. Both of these happened in states far from each other and neither one knows the other, or even what a skinwalker was….
I also have started reading House of Leaves by mark Z. Danielewski. The concept alone is fascinating, but the story is really interesting. I will do a full review once I finish it, but so far I am really liking it.
I have also been watching Gravity Fallson TV. Very cute animated series with monsters and other paranormal creatures. Yes, it is for kids, no I don’t care.
When I have time I have also been listening to Welcome to Night Vale. The only way I can describe it is Tales from Lake Wobegon meets the X-files, but all Mulder’s theories are true…..
First off we are really sorry the audio is this bad, we were not aware that the mic ought to have been closer to our faces. Also we had to record this late in the evening/night because we simply ran out of time before Anne had to return to her own continent. 😉 This is also the reason why we chose to struggle with subtitles to hopefully make it watch-able, because we cannot make a take two. In the future we will see what we can make happen with Skype and recording it, but for how, this was the first attempt at us trying to make sense, falling down from sleep deprivation.
The story I was talking about is already up here on the blog, the werewolf story. (the post before this)
Well, I made it! Amazingly, I only cheated on one prompt (early on I chose to go with a Google search instead of the actual prompt) and I did post every day so that fulfills the spirit of the challenge, I think.
What next? I am not even sure what to take up next. I have a big editing project to work on. My NANO novel from last year needs to move out of the rough draft stage and into the first draft stage, preferably before I start this years NANO.
Is anyone else out there doing NANO this year?
I am also looking at some minor surgery on a shoulder next month, so I hope I will be able to write during recovery. I have the voice software I need to get working with…I would hate to mess up NANO because I waited to long to have the procedure done.
Imagine a house. Draw a quick floor plan of the house on a piece of paper. Who do you think lives in this house? Imagine the house’s residents. Now, add a secret room to your floor plan. What’s in the room? Why is it secret? You decide. Someone is about to discover the secret room. What happens? Write the story.
