Does Everyone Have An Agenda?

Worked on paperback files, some tweaking after I discovered a new trick. Now I look more like everyone else. Yay! Right. That’s what it’s all about, right? Looking like everyone one else. Until they start reading the words inside and they find out that you’re not quite like everyone else. You start making them uncomfortable.Continue reading “Does Everyone Have An Agenda?”

Safe With Your Own Kind

Watched Narrow Margin. A tense little noir with great one liners that had it all: humor, twists, violence, style, voice, and a little kid in danger. A gravel voice cop escorts a mob boss’s wife to court via train to testify but the mob wants her dead. If I see it on DVD I’ll definitelyContinue reading “Safe With Your Own Kind”

Too Busy Saving Other Kids, No Time For Their Own

Heat wave is subsiding. I’m not doing much but I have plans in July. Watched Warlock. I don’t watch many westerns except for the classics or if they stick out for some reasons. This one stick out for Richard Widmark. I’ll watch anything with him in it. I know he doesn’t seem like the typeContinue reading “Too Busy Saving Other Kids, No Time For Their Own”

I’m an Anti-Social X-Man

Worked on the Sandwich paperback file. 150 pages of shorts. Love how Garamond looks. Maybe I’ll have the cover ready by the end of the month. CS has improved their template since the last time I used it or it just works better on the writing program I used. Either way, it went a lotContinue reading “I’m an Anti-Social X-Man”

Do Your Job, Homicidal

Little work on The Collection. This rate I can be done editing by next week. Completed some house projects I’ve been putting off because of the novel. Summer is looming and the kids will be out soon. Finally vacation and can leave the city. Finished Homicidal. Liked it a lot. Ripped off Psycho at theContinue reading “Do Your Job, Homicidal”

Cake

Worked on The Collection for a bit. Voted for Senator. Squeezed in stuff around the house. Started watching William Castle’s Homicidal. Starts off pretty good. Great first reel. Surprised how gory it was. I’ll have to finish it tomorrow. The war between the Libs and the Cons wages on. The latest upset with the SupremeContinue reading “Cake”

Always Trust Your Agent, Not

Little revising on Cities That Eat Islands and I’m done. Started this draft at 80,000 words. After cutting, pasting, and writing, I’m left with a 83,500 word novel. I’m happy with it. It’s a good part one to a trilogy. I’m geared up for part two, which I hope to start in September when theContinue reading “Always Trust Your Agent, Not”

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”

Neuro Typical Fantasy

Wrote a few hundred pages for Cities That Eat Islands this morning. To flesh out a minor character and give the closing a bit of a pay off. While walking around and doing errands I met Kiko who was panhandling at the drug store in front of the court house. Got to talking about moviesContinue reading “Neuro Typical Fantasy”

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”
