Headphones was an experiment, a story written in "snapshots", a serial, a comic in word form-- call it what you will. It ran for one year plus one day-- January 1st of 2015 to January 1st of 2016. It was the story of a group of friends who took in a damaged girl and helped her find herself. But on the way, she helped them fill the holes in their own lives. I've pulled it now with the hopes of rewriting it into a book. Each day was matched with a music video and each month's mixes are still here. So if you've stumbled in, enjoy the music, and hopefully I'll be able to post updates occasionally!

NaNoWriMo Update

I did it! I made the 50K with one day to spare, and finished Like Cracks In The Sidewalk while I was at it! (and didn't totally lose my mind in the process!) Now the real work begins--editing! I haven't actually been able to sit and read it through to see if it's coherent. So...my plans at this moment are to do some edits on When Silverfish Dance and submit it to some publishers, then work on edits for "Cracks". And then...hopefully...start the rewrites on Headphones, the story that started it all! And if I manage all of that, I've got two untitled stories rattling around in my brain that I want to develop. Who says I don't have a life?!

"Cracks" Update

10 days to go on the NaNoWriMo challenge. I'm just a few hundred words under goal, so I'm pretty happy about that. I've gone over the 30k mark, and my goal was to at least get that far, since this is my first time doing the challenge. Last week was rough--I had a couple of chapters that I reworked. I can't decide if what is going on around me is hindering me or if I'm using my writing as an escape. Maybe a bit of both! Anyway, I hit the 'bahm, bahm, bahm' moment of the plot, where my MCs have been torn apart, and now comes the part where I sew them back together. Fingers crossed, I might just do this!

Update

So, the events of this week have me brain addled. Writing is sporadic. I've dropped behind by more than 2000 words. I'm going to try and push forward this weekend, make some of that up, but chances are I'm finger-tied and idea-paralyzed. But I'm not stopping and I'm not giving up.

Someday I Hope To Need A Pencil Caddie

There's this thing I do as I write, this little word game. I intentionally throw in a word or a phrase from The Mighty Boosh, as a sign, or maybe as a signal, to any Boosh fans who may be reading my work, that says "I'm like you!" It feels like we're in a secret society, one that first gave me the confidence and the will to even attempt sharing my words. So if you catch one of my little Easter Eggs, give a shout out--I would love to hear from you!
