Today's Sentence of the Day, from today's output: “Big time Satanic voodoo shit,” Ross said. “Cow skulls, stinky candles, backwards Led Zep albums, voodoo dolls, dead bodies, you name it..." Good ol' Ross. I can always count on him to put everything into perspective. 6797 words so far. I'm WAY ahead of where I was … Continue reading NaNoWrimo Sentence of the Day
Well, here's my Sentence of the Day, from yesterday's 4k+ run (46K TO GO!! WOOT!): "This time, “prepared” meant murder…multiple. Serial. And worse, ritual."
359 words this morning, in the last half hour before attempting work.. Okay. Going full tilt into a godsawful Journey/Hardy Boys/Young Wizards Mary-sue mashup, with shades of Barb's "Candles" thing. No complaints, Barb. You started YOURS based on the last chapter of the old "Shadowed Soil/To Save A Sidhe". It's coming back full circle on … Continue reading NaNoWrimo
...and I do mean anywhere. "Oh Sherrie" came out right after I graduated high school. I remember seeing the MTV promos for it, what seemed to be this great Sword & Sorcery fantasy trip done by my favorite singer -- and I remember throwing a shoe at the TV screen during the "MTV Premiere". I … Continue reading Inspiration comes from anywhere…
Ok. We're gonna jump forward to story 2, here: "The Bloodied Land". And even then, we're jumping WAAAAAAAYYY forward, to a point where a snippet of dialogue in the old became a crucial, tense, bloody climatic scene in the new. So, the short snippet from the old, Ross pleading with Elena to save Neal's life: … Continue reading Old vs New, part 3
Heh. I've been recently re-reading all the OLD versions of my tales -- and I'm talking the original fanfic versions. Wow. How they've CHANGED.Let's do a comparison of equivalent scenes (warning: LONG scenes & fan-ficcy stuff behind the cuts, and for the record, LJ's Rich Text editor SUCKS, especially when attempting cuts). The original "Severed … Continue reading Oh my, THIS is fun!
Damn you, Journey, you've done it to me again. I was in the hospital for the first time in 1983, the start of my senior year in high school. It was a horrible prolonged smack-down of intestinal surgery -- tubes everywhere, infection, multiple surgeries. I was in the hospital for a solid month; I couldn't … Continue reading Damn you, Journey…
Okay. Now that I'm more copacetic and aware: I've re-listened to Eclipse. And re-listened. And listened again. "Resonate" still hits hard; for me, it's that powerful, just as "After All These Years" was. Likely because I *know* that feeling, heart-and-soul deep (I'm blessed with my husband, and I know it). AND it's a wonder to … Continue reading Eclipse, part II
A 'new' Steve Perry compilation popped up on Amazon.com: So the important question -- anything new? Hell no. What do you think this is, a Perry-ite wet dream or something? It sure as hell ain't MY wet dream, that's for certain. Nah, just the same old, same old tracks on here. The -ites get pissy … Continue reading Well, this is odd…
We now pause while your Vice Pope has a quiet conniption fit Thank you, phyllis of the Journey Digest, for the link. This is a direct quote from the site (once you register for it): "How does Journey help your Church: Journey increases the number attending. Journey gets everyone working towards a common goal. Journey … Continue reading Praise the Holy Journey & pass the Collection Plate!
