Monday I somehow offended the Sinus Gods. Their vengeance is both terrible and snotty. I spent yesterday in a dark room chugging sinus medicine and trying not to move.
You have to be careful during this period. Ideas inspired by sinus medicine and pain seem like genius when you think of them. Island Princess versus the Snot Monster! Ex-Wife Swapping! Haunted Massage Parlors! I actually started writing notes for these stories but once the sinus pressure stops squeezing your brain, common sense kicks in. I think we are all better off by me putting those notes away in a dark, dark box.
Instead of a story, I will give me my own personal to-read list.
Six Days of Halloween are six sexy scary stories. Hey look, alliteration.
Submission and Metaphor is a new blog started by a friend of mine. Go take a peak and show a newbie some love.
Jay Geldhof has an art blog that caught my eye. Be sure to click on the Gallery link on the side to see more of his work. I am in love with his ‘Spade’ illustration and find myself wanting to do stories based on her.
I’m going to go back to bed and try not to think of really bad story ideas.
