There’s a story here, I just have to find it

Posted by nightphoenix on February 25, 2013 in Art, Input, Life, Process, Short Stories |

As a writer, I find myself saying this a lot. I’ve heard of writers who have a difficult time coming up with ideas…and I confess, I have no idea what that feels like. As of right now, if I never had another story idea again, I have enough material sitting on my computer to keep […]

It’s conference time again

Posted by nightphoenix on January 15, 2013 in Art, News, Novels, Output |

The Space Coast Writers’ Guild puts on a writing conference every year, around the end of January…and it always manages to sneak up on me 😛 It’s a small, comfortable conference, and we do manage to get some very good people to come and speak. This year we have something like five agents and two […]

A merry massive mixed-update

Posted by nightphoenix on December 25, 2012 in Art, News, Short Stories |

I’m writing this on Christmas Day, while the boys are busy playing video games. Not something I was ever into. Therefore, I’m pretty bad at them, which makes me disinclined to play them, which means I don’t get any better…it’s a self-defeating cycle I have no particular inclination to break. Things have been busy these […]

Remember how I said I discovered a great, gaping hole in my Grimms premise? Part of the idea is that children are kidnapped by faeries when they are babies and toddlers, because children who grow up in Arcadia make better, more docile slaves. It’s all they know. All my Grimms are kidnapped as toddlers, and […]

Update: Smell of November revisit

Posted by nightphoenix on September 8, 2010 in Novels, Output, Process, Short Stories |

This month I’m making it a goal to revisit The Smell of November. I think that story always suffered from the word limit needed to enter it in the WD contest. So I’m lengthening it, and tweaking the storyline a bit. I’m making it more ambiguous, so that the reader never really knows if Alan […]

Grimms, revisited

Posted by nightphoenix on December 22, 2009 in Film, Output, Short Stories |

The hubby wants me to come up with a short story that we could possibly turn into a short video. I keep coming back to the Grimms concept because it has such potential to be a serial tale. (Quick recap, Grimms: a woman escapes from Arcadia and begins rescuing other children from the Fae. Some […]

Short story idea from an unusual source

Posted by nightphoenix on September 2, 2009 in Output, Process, Short Stories |

The hubby and I finally got around to watching Mall Cop. I’d had my doubts about this movie from watching the previews, which made it look a whole lot more stupid than it actually was, but it was surprisingly good. I really liked how the crooks were named after Santa’s reindeer, and how edgy and […]
