I just posted another piece I did for a writing prompt in my writers group that I attend weekly. It’s called Night of the Clown, and you can read it here.
I also noticed that my last post involved a funky dream I had. Well, I had another one last night. This one involved Holly Holm, Reese Witherspoon, a zombie apocalypse, an ostrich, my old ’69 Camaro SS that got totaled, and an underwater military base.
Yeah…it was one of those dreams. I woke up trying to figure out how you could avoid getting a severe vitamin deficiency and related conditions when you’re living in an underwater military base and all you have to eat is fish. Seaweed was an option I thought of in my barely lucid mental state, but I don’t know how much that would help. The long and the short of it is, thinking about it woke me up, so I got up and wrote another scene in Cindy’s Story. I have three more chapters to do after this one, and then I’m going to go through a rather harsh editing process, because this will be the first book I’m doing a print version of, so I want to make sure it’s as good as I can possibly make it before it gets printed. I really can’t wait to release this one. There’s lots of great humor in it, and to be honest, I’m quite proud of how it’s all coming out. I love the characters and I’ve had a hell of a lot of fun writing them. It’s sad that I’ll have to say goodbye to them all after it’s over since this is just a standalone novel, but that’s all I ever intended it to be.
Anyway, that’s it for now. If you haven’t read the other short story I wrote yet called The Tree, be sure to read it. I’m extremely proud of that one. It was something way different for me and I’ve been told it’s a real tear jerker.
