art day 26 – [story fragment] My Best Story EVAR!

I haven’t quite finished this story. But it really wowed them at Clarion. The potential it has…

——————————-

[Need a killer opening line.]

[Really vivid setting details. (Don’t forget the character … quirky!)]

[Have to research hard sci-fi sciency stuff. Make people think i’m smart.]

[Something awesome happens!]

[Try fail cycle. (Thematic allusions to feminist critique of capitalism?)]

[Depressing fatalistic ending. (Kill the baby?)]

——————————-

Changes a comin’

Well, i finally did it. I converted my writing site to a blog. It’s not entirely done, so let’s call this Version 1.

First and foremost, this means that i won’t be posting directly to LiveJournal anymore. You’ll still see my posts, though, through syndication. I’m trying to set up a plugin to show comments made on LJ syndicated posts, but it might be easier to just go to my site if you want to cheer, boo, accuse or cajole. (link at the bottom of every post on LJ.)

Hey you know what?

Tomorrow’s my birthday!

Clearly a time for changes and challenges. In honor of my new year i’m challenging myself to create more. Expect frequent posts here of art, music, story excerpts and other bits of weirdness from my mind.

The current exciting categories are:

  • Scribbles, Constructions and Objects D’Art : ART
  • A Rose Is A Rose : HAIKU AND OTHER POETRY
  • Bleeps, Crashes and Squawks : MUSIC
  • Chunks Of Story : FICTION EXCERPTS
  • Unsolicited Writing Advice : WRITING ADVICE
  • That’s Just Silly : COMEDY
  • Whoa, That Was Weird! : DREAMS

Expect something new at least twice a week, eventually everyday if i ever get on top of this novel.

I’ll still post updates on the novel process and Work In Progress quotes too.

So, cool, come check out the site!
