Still Interesting and Still Inconclusive

More editing on Cities That Eat Islands. Rearanged our DVDS. Finally made the whole bay in auteur and the second bay will be broken down into genre. saw a lot of titles I don’t think we’ll want anymore. I’ll have to double check with Neen. Should have a good handful to Swap out in theContinue reading “Still Interesting and Still Inconclusive”

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”

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”

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.”

Everything Changes, The Worse Stays The Same

No new writing this week. Just don’t have the motivation. But I have been doing a lot of research. A lot on Ellis Island and the 1920s for the new book. Tentatively titled Cities That Eat Islands. I’m leaning towards a large piece, combining the prospective trilogy into one book to save time. Give myselfContinue reading “Everything Changes, The Worse Stays The Same”

Facing the Other Way

Haven’t been writing anything new lately. I still have two pages of that crime story I started many weeks ago that I want to finish. I’m pretty sure I can finish it in Dec before I start the new novel in January. Pretty sure. I have finished up editing that longer sci-fi short story OrangeContinue reading “Facing the Other Way”

The Republicans That Ran Away To Join The Circus

Edited two shorts this morning before the babes woke. Kids only have two days of school today so I’m not getting much done and little time. 10 pages for each one. One I will publish for this month. That’s my new thing. To publish a short story a month. You know. Taking risks. Branching out.Continue reading “The Republicans That Ran Away To Join The Circus”

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”
