Song mood: Everything She Does is Magic by The Police. This song was playing on the radio as made my way to the mall three years ago on this day.
From now until next spring, I think I will work on my support base. Making connections with writer’s and artists. I will work on short stories and editing the novella that I wrote earlier this year.
Twelfth day in no shave November, and my beard is beginning to be itchy. Three years ago for Halloween I dressed up as Martin from Dirk Gently’s Wholistic Detective Agency. I grew out my goatee and dyed both my hair and goatee to match.
I’m thinking of doing a new website next year. Something different. I’m looking at webcomics as a source of inspiration. One I’m looking at because I met the artist is Alison Wilgus who does the Chronin Series. Although my website probably won’t look anything like a webcomic.
What it will probably have will be short stories or sections of a novella I worked on last year that I called The Radio. About a guy who gets thrown into a parallel world that’s connected to a radio frequency. I stopped writing it because I wasn’t happy about how I written the other world. I thought of ways I can fix it. But ultimately I will rewrite it and use the story for the new website. Instead of an HP Lovecraft type world, it will probably be world of black and white horror films.
The thing about the website is that it doesn’t really sell books. So basically it’s really a statement about who the writer or author is. What I would really like the website to do is to persuade artists and other writers to work with me.
Currently I’m listening to Morse’s Greatest Mystery and Other Stories by Colin Dexter. Next up will be The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.
So me for the moment is writing short stories.
