Thoughts on Perfection

I just posted the latest Grumpy Old Vampires.  You can read the start of it below, and then follow the link to finish it.  Before I get to that, though, I wanted to jot down some thoughts I’ve been having today on my writing.  This week’s Vampires episode isn’t my best.  I realize that, and I’m posting it anyway.  This is actually kind of a big step for me.  I don’t like people seeing things that I’m not totally happy with.  This is probably one reason why I’m such a bad manuscript submitter.  I have to be really confident of […]

Grumpy Old Vampires

I just posted episode six of Grumpy Old Vampires, the new hit web series that no one knows about.  Can you resist clicking on the link?  Well, I know you can resist–but why would you want to? In other news, I’m now over 46,000 words on Ichabod, and it’s still going well.  There have been a couple of instances where I’ve forgotten to include something key in my outline, so I’ve been having to go back and rewrite a tad here and there, but nothing major.  This is definitely the most pain free experience I’ve had writing so far, with

Victor Comes Up with a Plan

The latest Grumpy Old Vampires has been posted.  In this week’s episode, Victor expounds on the legal system and vampires, and he comes up with a plan to get the money he needs to buy his Rascal.  If you’re looking for something short and diverting to waste about four minutes of your life in an enjoyable fashion, please consider reading it. Can I just say how much Mondays are getting on my nerves?  There’s always just so much to do.  Sigh.  On the plus side, I took a couple of hours this morning to look for more jobs, and I’ve

The Black Market

New Grumpy Old Vampire post is up.  This week’s focuses on the desire of every aging vampire: a Rascal 625.  The first of what will likely prove to be an actual plot, carried out over the next few weeks’ episodes.  Short.  Funny.  Read it. I’d post more now, but I have a bad headache (which might mean that this week’s episode is a bit off, since I just finished writing it).  So . . . more when I don’t feel nauseous from pain anymore.

Welcome to Wal-mart

In raisinfish ‘s new story that we’re workshopping, she has a teen vampire go hide in Wal-mart, which seemed ingenious to me.  But what if the Wal-mart greeter were a vampire?  That’s the premise of this week’s episode of Grumpy Old Vampires.  It’s short–go check it out. And while I’m posting, I’d like to wish my wife a public happy birthday–it was yesterday, but I didn’t post then, so I think this still counts.  We celebrated by going up to Salt Lake to eat dinner with my family, and then had a small party on arriving home.  What did I
