I write character-driven dark fiction.
What do you do?

Guestbook

Exactly what it says; a place for you to throw me a 'Hi' and let me know you're out there. I'll start it off. Ready?

Hello! Nice to see you!:D


There. See how easy that was? Now you give it a try!

I figure your participation to the Coffin Hop this year is a given. LOL! Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year again too? I know that would keep you running full-bore for a couple of months for all intents and purposes. If so, have you had any story lines forming? Or might you develop something short (flash, etc) you've done in the past into something bigger? Just wondering ... I know, I know... I'm sure you can squeeze that in during your spare time.

"rrriiiiiiiight - !"


Yeah, I'll be in the Coffin Hop for sure. Hell, I just bought the T-shirt! I'm actually thinking about doing a small (10 minute) podcast every day for the month of October, just a quick read of a flash piece - I have quite a few already over on Friday Flash, or I'll read someone else's if I can get them.
As far as NaNo this year... I don't think so. I haven't finished either my first or second attempts yet, though I'm over 130,000 words into last year's. I want to try to actually get that finished, maybe into a second draft, but I'll never finish any if them if I keep starting a new one each year. If that was all I worked on, full time, then maybe, but I keep getting side-tracked with smaller stuff. Now I've even started narrating other people's work for a couple of Podcasts. I'm sure I'll be posting links to them when they start appearing in public... lol.

Love reading your life story, you are always my second son, since Paul does not keep in touch to much. Wish you much luck with this site, love to read about handsome an you!

Thank you for the visit and the good wishes, and as long as you people keep reading WYMOP I'll keep writing it.
As far as I know.
Unless I run out of things to say.
But, seriously ... what are the chances of that? :)

Hi Rob,
I just wrote to you where you receive letters and ask how you found the web site. I loved Ariana's reply of "YOU GAVE IT TO HER" My letter shot off before I clicked on send and I don't think you will receive it. You are a brain with this computer of yours. All I know about is sending e-mails and getting them. Looking forward to reading all your blogs and just tuned into Dan's blog. Keep up the good work as it is funny and full of info. Talk to you later. Nana

Thanks, Nana! I'll be keeping up with the blog as well as I can, though next month will be a busy one in the writing world. It's National Novel Writing Month, and I plan to win it again. 50,000 words in 30 days. I made it last year, and this year I think I'm more ready for it. I'll try to keep you informed!
