Cold Mentality

So I've begun work on a novel. The theme? Horror! The working title is Cold Mentality and its basic premise is following a man on a cruise ship who slowly descends into madness. Whether it is real or imagined I'm sure will be something important for him to discover ;)

And there may or may not be some sort of darker sinister supernatural element involved. Should be fun!

So I've got the idea for the story and it's based on an idea I had for an adventure game from a few years back. My thought is I can write the novel and base the game on it and sort of do a cross-promotion thing if I finish both around the same time. My main goal is to write a minimum of 1500 words a day, without fail. If I maintain that, I should have a good sized novel within half a year. I usually have a framework to go off of, but right now I'm merely writing off the cuff and seeing where it takes me. Should be an interesting experience. Last time I attempted this I got 10k words in (in 2 days, no less!) and then lost interest because I felt the story was going to hit a dead end far sooner than intended (Pun, however, fully intended)

And honestly, you can get more of an idea of what it's going to be by checking out my previous posts with the same label. The excerpt isn't going to be in the finished product (at least not as is) but I'm going to actually stick with it this time to completion.

On edge

I get this feeling that I'm on the edge of something interesting. I'm hesitant to say amazing, because that would be rather pretentious of myself. But's always interesting.

I have feelings that things will go favorably for myself in the near future (not creatively, but personally) and with that I feel that my creativity will shoot through the roof. Actually, scratch that. I'm already feeling overflowing with creativity at the moment. I just have no outlet for it. No focus to hone it. So what's the deal?

I've found my muse again. It's been 8+ years, but I've found my muse. Only problem is the muse isn't with me.

Maybe time will affect that.

Stay frosty.

One year?!


Been far too long since I did anything with this. Which begs the question. Continue on with this as a showcase for works I'm working on (ha!) or make it more personal. I've got an idea to write an entire novel in blog form, and go from there...but who knows.

But I'm not dead. Yet.
