Recognizable Voice

Computer work today. Revised my YA files. Half way done. Got me thinking of writing YA again. Straight YA without any crime or weirdness. In a way, I did with the sequel to Jesus Freakz earlier this year. Not a big seller right now but that’s okay. I still play around with the genre inContinue reading “Recognizable Voice”

the Joy and the Movement and the Dead

Due to my wife’s birthday today, my work sched was rearranged. I did no editing on Cities That Eat Islands. After taking her out for breakfast and to the mall and other refinements, I managed to finish the Miki files. All 11 novels are snazzy with nifty fonts and a design at the chapter headContinue reading “the Joy and the Movement and the Dead”

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

Cities That Eat Islands: Update

I reached the end of the first draft of the first part of the trilogy, Cities That Eat Islands. I’m two weeks ahead of schedule even though I started off horribly back in January. I finished at 80,000 words in less than three months. I averaged out about 1,000 to 2,000 words a day. SomeContinue reading “Cities That Eat Islands: Update”

Please Excuse The Explosion And Carry On With Your Day.

And research goes on. Focusing on Albert Fish. For those not in the know he was a cannibal who ate children and was caught in the 1930s. He was in his sixties when the police apprehended him. A sick fellow who always fascinated me. For decades I was only able to find him in chaptersContinue reading “Please Excuse The Explosion And Carry On With Your Day.”

To Miki Or Not To Miki

I planned to take three years off after Miki book 11. That’s a big chunk in a series. A lot of time to spend in a character’s head. Of course I plan to come back. I have twenty more books to write in that world and I’ll probably come up with twenty more as I’mContinue reading “To Miki Or Not To Miki”

a not so distant future where one struggles for gasoline

Finished Kharma Part 12 revisions. Working on two short story revisions this week (MiLK and White Elephant in the Blue Room). Both are just about 5k words so that’s different lately. Tried to find some markets to submit to and failed. Nothing in my pay rate. As planned for June, I want to get inContinue reading “a not so distant future where one struggles for gasoline”

Sorry.  No talking bugs or anuses.

Just about done with 3rd part of Kharma part 12 revisions. Nothing much to say. I must sound like a broken record. Writing about writing is not very exciting. Not like the movie Naked Lunch. Sorry.  No talking bugs or anuses. No spies. No Interpol. No drug taking. My life is boring. The words inContinue reading “Sorry.  No talking bugs or anuses.”

Even years from now they may mesh

More work on third chunk of Kharma part 12. Ideas/threads to carry over into future stories pop up in my head as I edit along. I write them down in my little book for later. Bits for the next story or even the third or tenth story down. Can’t stress enough to a new writersContinue reading “Even years from now they may mesh”
