I've written an opening scene which I quite like, but I'm not sure where it goes...back to the drawing board I think. Good luck everyone!

Two competing ideas! Gah. Each require taxing my miniature brain.

Why am I not feeling this?

Maybe it's the moon...being in Pisces ...rising? (I'm making this up I don't know how any of that stuff works.)

While mine wasn't fully formed, I had the general story arc Saturday morning.

I had that TOO!  Both require some research.  But I think I've picked the one I want to go with... finally.  

I think part of my problem is we have ALL WEEK for this so it's looming over me yet I can't bring myself to get truly started.

Time is good.  Been distracted by a few things today (Notre Dame among them), so got my notes organized a little bit and started working on descriptions.  I think now is a good time to just give up on progress and tackle a different project.

A long, long time ago, before civilization, before Leslie King was appointed President of the United States, before the Internet, Walt Disney released a 33 1/3 album (on vinyl) called "The Thrilling, Chilling Sounds of the Haunted House".  Sitting at home alone, writing old-school horror, and I remembered this album, thinking it would be appropriate.

Fortunately we live in the age of YouBoob, and of course it's available...maybe not the perfect soundtrack for writing, but darn close...

I be stuck.  This drama writing is not that easy, at least not with the prompts I got.

If you want to PM me I'd be happy to look at the ideas you're working with and maybe throw a little chlorine trifluoride on your drama, see if we can heat it up a bit...

Hit me up, Suave. Drama is my jam, and I'd be happy to read or bounce ideas, etc. Just let me know!
