Sunday Small Talk

Hi. It’s been a few weeks, hasn’t it? Mostly I’ve had nothing to say. I’ve not been writing. It had seemed rather pointless.

I’m picking up a little this week. I found an anthology that was looking for fey characters and I did send out Conned to that which is an older story. It was shockingly too short so it has a new (and better) ending. Now that I reread the open call, I’m not entirely sure it fits but I took a chance any how.

I did sign up for Camp Nano and I will be doing These Haunted Hills. I’m not sure I can write contemporary but I can at least write paranormal. This is a blend of those. I wish it would gel in my head more though.

I’m revising Blood Red one more time to remove yet another plot line and work on some of the passivity. I am truly ready to just chuck it. It seems like I’ve been wasting years of my life on this.

Rainbow Snippets

As I’m rushing about to leave on Spring Break (Really? ALREADY?) I won’t be putting up any pictures of the Haunted Hocking Hills this time and I probably won’t get to anyone’s post until much later (heck this might be late depending on when the thread goes up). I’m continuing this right from where it left off last time with Brendan and Joshua getting introduced to each other.

“Dr. Zimmerman?”

Joshua already knew Halloran had one of those deep James Earl Jones voices but hearing it here when it was just them and not a crowd of fans made Josh’s knees go wobbly. Joshua held out his hand. “Mr. Halloran. I’m glad you found your way out here.”

His lips twitched slightly, almost smiling as he shook hands. “The trail is paved the whole way so even a city dweller like me won’t get lost.” He turned to look at the water rushing over the lip of the fall. “It’s quite beautiful. It’s hard to believe this much wilderness exists to close to Columbus. It’s little more than an hour from where I live, and yet I was barely aware this was here.”

If you’d like to play along, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook community where we post up 6 sentences of one of our LGBT stories every Saturday. It’s been fun and you can find it here. Be sure to check out all the offers! It’s been a great supportive group!
