Just some pre sleep thoughts at 7am as I was up all night mostly drawing. I really want to write a subcharacter onto Tales From When I Had A Face that twists the general sense of http://www.deltacollege.edu/org/deltawinds/DWOnline03/themisunderstoodfemmefatal.html -
there are a lot of anima projections throughout the three books (in threes of course) and many do something conscious but I’m not happy with it all. for instance I don’t think Lilith’s motive is clear enough, it is written off to her nature. Trevino makes a “bitches will be bitches” joke that doesn’t hit the mark, but to an absence of conclusion some might be tricked into thinking that is meant to be taken seriously. here is a great opportunity but it means significantly adding the Lilith behind the mask to the first book.
I think that and the task of deepening Ariadne will substantially benefit the “payoff”, which for all it’s almost Bey-like BOOM seems a little flat. it’s because not all the emotional dominos were laid, just most.
I’m on it!
also Www.WordsOfTraitors.com is coming off Amazon on the 28th. it was always meant to be temporary. I’ve got more for some of those stories. Choice of Ants belongs in a short story anthology or magazine that would like creepy surreal tinged psychological fiction. A meditation on loss. Any ideas? If not I’m just hitting writers market and google. The other stories belong in the Fallen Nation Redux, and Center of the Spiral.
Somehow I need to draw 12 hours a day, write and edit 6, manage promotion and the business side which I am really bad at running, eat, sleep, hopefully fuck and maybe do some conventions in there. I’d like that to be 2014 so much. Anyone want to help or come along?
