A little more...

Hey,  everyone! ...getting ready for the new year?

Despite the decision to take a hiatus from writing and catch up on reading... I've only managed to devour 2 books so far... and write about 1,350 words on the new story, Project #6... which I have semi-jokingly titled 'SCARLIGHT' for the time being. Oh, I also wrote a fast blurb (now on the 'What I'm Writing' page) so the gist of the story is clear. And yes, the blurb completely sucks, but that's about the only kind of outline I ever write to keep myself on track. The blurb for Project #5 similarly sucks in a 'basic-statement-of-facts-and-nothing-else' kind of way.

Now, before I give you the next section of #6, here's a question:

...Would you guys be interested if I created a new page for first-draft work and just kept adding new pieces as I write them? That way, the new story would all be in one place.

I'm thinking that's a heck of a lot easier for me to take it all down when I want to... instead of hunting through the archives and removing the first draft material piece by piece (which I still haven't done for 'Brake Fluid' since I'm... lazy?)

BUT, if you really only want to read it once (or not at all), it's a moot point. After all, it IS just first-draft material... nothing great.

Anyways, your thoughts are appreciated :) Here's the next bit (repeating the final line from the last sample so it flows together properly)


  1. There's something incredibly poetic about this whole piece. I really enjoyed it.

    If it it easier for you to put all of the story on one page, I say go for it :-)

  2. Interesting character description. You paint beautiful imagery with words.



Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
