750 words

Okay, so A MILLION OR SO YEARS AGO (aka this time, 8th grade) I started writing a short story based on this dream I had. Back then, it was called “Anti.” If you don’t remember it (you probably don’t), it was about this monster-hunter girl who pisses a monster off with her pride and becomes the monster. How original. It was also poorly-written, as was everything I wrote in 8th grade.

So I started re-writing it. I wrote the first 1200 or so words last night (for my “750” words. I go on to 750words.com and write over 900 words) and I’m probably going to finish it this weekend. Now it’s titled “She Who Fights Monsters” after the well-known Nietzsche quote (“He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster”). It’s probably going to be very long. Maybe shorter than “Pretty Miss Douglass,” but perhaps longer. I’d ballpark it (from what I have written) at 2500-3500 words long.

At the same time, I’m about to log on to 750words.com to tap out a chapter for Bad Moon Rising. I’m not sure if I’m going to end up writing the first chapter or a later chapter (which I have had planned for a while), but neither would be about the Violet and Oliver from “Le Conflit” and “Nous Devons Voyager.” Actually, these chapters would be about the main characters of the novel– modern day Violet and Oliver, who are probably somehow related to Victorian-era Violet and Oliver. They’re all werewolves, anyway. This is one heck of a novel to be writing, that’s for sure.

I’m just writing a lot lately, actually. Novels, short stories, blog posts…

OH YES.

I admit, I’m being a bad Screnzier and not working too hard on my script right now. I’m just finishing the second page with an aim for five pages by the end of the day. Hopefully, that will carry me through the Prologue so I can shoot it off to Artist #1. I plan on debuting the prologue at Phoenix ComiCon in May. Just try and stop me.

Speaking of PCC, the release of Mindwarp & Eris #1 might be delayed until SabotenCon (September 1-3rd). There’s a strong possibility that Jenn and I will get a table there, which is hella exciting.

I also just broke through my writer’s block on chapter five of Four Eyes. Oh man. I have some horrible and delicious “villains” coming up! I’m really excited to be working on this; I can’t wait to finish and edit it and maybe get it published or something. Is that how it works?
Today, I started again on 750 Words and I wrote a 910-word drabble to a story idea I’ve been bouncing off the wall for a little while. It doesn’t have a name yet, and only sort of a plot, but I was wondering if anyone would like me to post each chapter as I write it (hopefully for my daily 750+ words). They’d basically be totally unedited and probably terrible, but if anyone’s interested in my serial writing…

That’s all I have to say for right now. How has everyone been?
