Working a Scene

Today I’ve been working with those new characters I mentioned earlier, Duff and Merrin. Before today all I had down was a bunch of narrative, notes really, no action, covering the backbone of the plot, characterization, and so on. Pages filled with “telling” sentences such as, “He felt […]

New Characters

Have I told you about the new characters I’m living with? I’m just so excited with this bunch. They have nothing to do with Callum and Limbo, it’s not part of the pseudo-novel thingy I’ve been working on forever. This is brand spanking new stuff, and I’m stoked! […]

Ay! There’s the Rub

I dreamt I went on a trip to a tiny country in South America. It was hot. Jungle-like. And in a state of civil unrest. Rebel fighting at all times of the day and night . . . but mostly night. We were fairly safe in our hotel […]

I totally forgot this was a long weekend . . . not that a long weekend is any different for me than any other weekend . . . or really any other day for that matter. I do live in my own little bubble, where night is day […]

What Age do you Act?

You Are 26 Years Old 26 Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view – and you look at the world with awe. 13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place […]

Loopy Lou

I can’t get over how tired I am. I did sleep last night, for a little while anyway. I’ve been working on the BnM email list, which has my eyes crossed, can’t stop yawning, feel like I’m in a haze . . . almost like I’m drugged. God, […]

Ketchup with the Devil

I dreamt about the Fireman. Haven’t thought about him in years. Can’t imagine why I’m thinking about him now. Maybe it’s because someone I know is dating a fireman? I don’t know. I think I knew his real name at one time, but it’s long gone now, though […]
