It's been a while. But things are gonna return to a more normal run. The novelisation of The Osseous Box is going well. The 13 parts of it that went on TKnC each part usually ran for roughly 2k, which has translated to say 7k per part as I've expanded and bulked out the characters, which is something I wasn't able to do. Also there were scenes and parts that I cut out that now get to go back in.
I've also been working on a few stories for a few antho's and comps.
The most pressing of which is for Null Immortallis: Nemonymous 10. The deadline for which is midnight tonight and there's a fuck-ton of writing and editing to do. I had to backburner my original story as it was about biological immortality and a man's attempt to copy nature like we have done many times before, birds - planes etc. Then it got so confusing it was liking watching the film Primer, but nipping for a piss and then returning and wondering what the fuck you'd missed. The story started contradicting itself so shelved it. And started a new one, this one is about time, pretty much fitting as it has to be in D. F. Lewis's inbox by midnight tonight. Not even thought of the ending yet. But maybe the pressure will make me shine lol.
From Monday I'm gonna be running a few reviews of books. Not saying they'll be insightful or in any way decent, it'll just be my views on them. Basically I want a soap box, I usually finish a book and look to someone to either preach to, or rant to. It's my website and it costs me each month so I'm gonna say something on it, even if it's twaddle(Blogspot readers, I know this is free but me other one ain't).
The list so far, and if you want to add something of your own to that list, I know a few of you have stuff coming out in the next few months send me an email.
Gregory Miller: Scaring the Crows: 21 Tales for Noon or Midnight (He sent me that book for free so he gets first turn)
Chris Ewan: The Good Thiefs Guide to Paris
Matt Hilton: Slash & Burn
John Ajvide Lindqvist: Let the Right One in
Stuart MacBride: Broken Skin
The other main reason for doing a few reviews it to prove to myself I've paid attention to the story and noticed things, both the good and the bad that I can apply to my own scribbling.
Laters, have a good long weekend(If you is in England) I'll post in the morning whether or not I made the deadline.
