Keeping Score: Late-ish October

Quick update

No, really. I put down almost a thousand words the past week, but (isn’t there always) they were all on other stories than Lodge of the Wolf #2! I was looking for short story material in particular. I ended up editing, changing, and adding rather than extending my existing material. The ideas in each case seemed solid, but I either needed too many words to tell the story or didn’t have a good ending for a short story.

Short stories are HARD. I knew that intellectually, but there’s nothing like a little reality to make something sink in… usually painfully.


Comic show this weekend! Primarily I’m headed out to see if there is an artist there that

  1. takes commissions and
  2. wants to pick up original work. I’d like to augment Orchids Ablaze with a few interior pictures.

There’s some indication that the existing, original cover may not be the attention-getter I was hoping for, so I may look toward replacing it. Wish me luck! I’ll post back how it went.

I'm on my 5th or 6th career depending on how you count them, but ideally this one will be my last with the kind help of our readers. I've traveled to several states across the U.S., but the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina will always be where I'm most comfortable. I've been an avid reader of comics for more years than I'm going to mention, but I return time after time to the old pulps. Obviously the Doc Savage books have been a tremendous influence. There's just something about seeing and hearing those characters in your mind's eye, just the way YOU, as the reader, think they should be.. I've been writing poems, lyrics and stories of varying quality since I was in my teens, which means most of my archives are on paper in three-ring binders! I've been creating characters in various RPG systems for at least that long. I've always thought characters made the story: good characters can live on through story after story. It wasn't until the last 6 or 7 years that I felt I could write characters well enough to be engaging. You'll have to let me know how I'm doing.
