Weird and Oppressive

More revisions on Cities That Eat Islands. Tomorrow I should be done. Started watching Part 2 of Luc Besson’s Arthur and the Invisibles. Part 1 was pretty good, which I saw earlier this year. Part leads right into part 3 so I have that to look forward to tomorrow. So far I’m enjoying the mixContinue reading “Weird and Oppressive”

The Long Post and the Threat of Regression

FRIDAY Kids had a half a day so the teachers can leave early from work and prepare for their three day week end. Damn the unions. So I managed to complete a little computer work. Not able to get much done with BOTH kids home. Watched Michael Mann’s Manhunter. Been a while since I’ve seenContinue reading “The Long Post and the Threat of Regression”

They Always Get What’s Coming To Them

Finished this week’s editing goal for Cities That Eat Islands. Next week is the last week on the novel. Snuck some computer work on the store. Celebrated my 15 year wedding anniversary with Neen. Were supposed to go to FM at Noon but turned out they didn’t open until 1PM. Considering the time limit withContinue reading “They Always Get What’s Coming To Them”

Don’t You Have A Filter?

More work on Cities that Eat Islands. Submitted cover to designer for paperback version Bawling Sugar Soul. D was home sick today. Helped him with his essay. A ridiculous subject. A hard one. Finding common ground between the Europeans, the Native Americans, and the African Americans in 1492. Gonna need some creative writing for thisContinue reading “Don’t You Have A Filter?”

Not Believe In The Media

Started this weeks new batch of pages for Cities That Eat Islands. Down to the last part and all that leads to the climax. Ka-ching. I imagine there will be a lot of tweaking. Started Mark Miller’s Hellraiser: The Toll. A novella that’s placed between Barker’s novella and his novel the Scarlet Gospels. So far soContinue reading “Not Believe In The Media”

A Bitch and A Blessing

Started next forty pages of editing for Cities That Eat Islands. Still a solid first draft. Mostly cutting useless words, rephrasing grammar, and moving word order. The benefit of editing as you go when writing the first draft. Still proud of what I wrote. Still the best I wrote so far. Paper back cover forContinue reading “A Bitch and A Blessing”

To Wake During The Closing Credits

Friday Night Watched Fred Olen Ray’s Deep Space. Kind of like the remake if The Blob. The dates of the two are close. Note sure who ripped off who. A man made government creation comes down from space and starts killing people in LA. The creature FX were pretty good for the budget. The copsContinue reading “To Wake During The Closing Credits”

Finished revision goal for Cities That Eat Islands. Submitted work order for paper back cover for Surly Girly. Started watching Toxic Avenger. Hoping to get up to part three. One of the greatest super hero movies ever made. Always chokes me up. And I’m not saying that because he’s from New Jersey. So over sensitizedContinue reading

A Cheap Full Moon Trick

Draft 2 of Cities that Eat Islands is past the halfway mark and moving along. I ran into a part where I wanted to add a scene but was too lazy to write it. I’ve done that before. Either I’ll save it for the end or I’ll just skip it all together. I don’t knowContinue reading “A Cheap Full Moon Trick”

Not So Happy Holidays

IT’S HOW YOU SEE THINGS, NOT HOW IT REALLY IS It’s when all your words come out in in monotone or in low volume or they don’t come out right at all. Your brain thinks the right word but the wrong word leaves your mouth. Or your mouth trips up the words. Or your brainContinue reading “Not So Happy Holidays”
