I haven’t done a blog in a while, not because I ran out of idea’s it’s because I have too many in the fire. I plan on doing 16 more ‘once upons’. I’ve been drawing them, having a ball doing that and decided to do another series related to them. The ‘fiddler and jumping jack jimmy jam jones.’ I’m also still writing my android series- in the middle of the current chapter. I plan on doing 6 more chapters and a few interludes. I created a new character that I’m really excited about, Shahara, she’ll play a dominant role down the line.
I know, not too many members are reading this stuff, actually very few, but it doesn’t matter in the least. I’m writing these blogs for me, putting my world together in a type of mosaic. A little bit here and a little bit there. I also have one more series which I’ll do down the line. My beasties, I released the beastie poems on the showcase but I’ve written a story with it, their origins and purpose as well as their relationship with the Legionaries (the elementals that did not follow Mephistopheles.)
I know your all wondering (well I’m wondering) we’ll I release my series the “Trinity Dreamscape”. maybe down the road, it used to be a first rights thing, but I blew that by showing a rough 1st draft on another site, 12 years ago, it’s totally different now, actually way different, but a publisher (a major one) who was going to publish it backed out even though it was from a near dead website. They said if my book hit that website may still have some rights to the story and a legal hassle could pursue. So, protect your first rights if you want to be published. So, I may show this in the future after I release all this other stuff. So, when I publish it will be self-published. Not what I hoped but that’s what happens when you show your stuff on public sites.
As you all know, I took over the Poetry Challenge from Lisa (Chester’s Daughter). I’m trying to make it pop once again, a hard task indeed. I’m putting it out on a few boards, I was going to put it on Announcements, like I did on the “poetry showcase” but I found out that I did not have those privileges to do it like I had I the old site. I just hope the tools that I have are enough to make the poets crawl out of their safe cocoon’s. I did find out that the poets in the challenge are not a chatty lot but I hope to break those barriers down in the months ahead.
That’s it for now- I hope to see you on the blogs…
