Writing Prompts

Writing Prompts

Writer’s block. Two of the most dreaded words for writers. Right up there with rejection letters and “closed to submissions.” Hop on over the to the blog for the NWA NANO WRIMO group and check out where to find some writing prompts, and some ideas for getting out of a slump.

Our Project Characters

I thought it might be helpful to post something about each of the characters that we are going to be using in this series of stories we are writing. The characters will vary depending on the story, but there are some characteristics that will stay pretty much the same no matter which of is writing or what is going on.

I will start with the three I developed the most:

I really have been working….

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 Falls on 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 ValeThe only way I can describe it is Tales from Lake Wobegon meets the X-files, but all Mulder’s theories are true…..

Son of the Moon. [first sample chapter]

This is a free sample chapter of our upcoming book Phantasms. Contact info and disclaimer at the end of the post. Every chapter in the book concludes it self, so this is a complete short story.

The story is about some boys who plays a prank that goes horribly wrong. (okay I was always rubbish with blurbs)

It’s written for young adults, there is nothing too graphic in it.

You can also download it as a PDF, sorry – no clue how to create a mobi file.
