First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. 🙂
The Dentist and I – Still an ongoing dance with this. I had misspoke on a previous post talking about this. I was to see the dentist on the 12th of Feb, not see him in 21 days – sorry about that. So anyway, saw the dentist and still waiting to get the inserts put in my denture so the pins will have something to snap onto. Dr. Shirley(a man so no snide comments please) wants to make sure the bone is solid around the pins so the pins won’t come out the first time I eat something like ribs. I don’t want the pins coming out either – getting them in in the first place was not something I want to repeat.
Writing – I am working on a short story I plan to submit to FunDead Publications. I love the name of the company, don’t you. Punnish Gothic lol. I got an email that had information about submitting entries for their upcoming anthology and after reading the guidelines, I decided to try my luck.
Not long after I read all of that, I was on Facebook trolling about. I saw a meme that had the little story about Nobody, Anybody, Somebody and Everybody. It was cute and a bit amusing. Once I read it, I decided to name my story Mr. Nobody. I don’t normally name my stories first, usually I write them and then name them. Now, I had a name but no story. Over a period of nearly a week, I mulled over the story, coming up with openings, partial plots and not liking anything. I almost chucked the idea entirely.
Then, as I was crocheting and playing a farming game, an idea came to me. I did some research to make sure it was feasible, or at best, believable – something else I don’t normally do since my work is typically fantasy so all those things get thrown out the window(along with the kitchen sink at times). So, here I am musing over an idea, and I remember seeing the picture of an old house I liked the look at some time ago. I dug up the picture, and the beginning of the story began to form. Yay me!
Still, I had nothing concrete so I kept thinking things over while crocheting. I like to work stories out in my head, scenes anyway. I had characters starting to show up and talk to me. Then, out of the blue, an ending came to me. It gave me the shivers how clear the entire thing was to me. So now, I have a bit of a beginning, some players ready for parts and a great(to me anyway) ending. I am still working on how to get from Point A to Point B and then to Point C. Stories always have three points: a beginning, a middle and an end. I’m still working on it. I have until March 11 so I have time.
Crafting – I mention crocheting because it’s the main thing I like to do. I have tried, half assed, and at times, barely assed, getting them sold online. I have decided I’m tired of worrying about if it’s going to work or not. I am going to do my best to start and run an online shop selling my handcrafts as well as those of others when I’m big enough. I am a great fiber artist, and I want to show the world what I can do!! Wish me well!!
And that is all I have to report at this time. Golden Knight is still being edited in spurts. I don’t write when I don’t feel like it, and I haven’t felt like it in a while. Perhaps, with the short story, I can kick start my writing urge and get GK done so I can get it to my Beta Readers. We’ll see.
See you all on the flipside and don’t forget to bring your towel and sonic screwdriver!
