Diabetic Dracula – Was it a Gerbil or a Hamster? #DiabeticDracula

*** Author’s note: if you have not witnessed the birth of the new legend, then I highly suggest that you read the woeful first tale of Diabetic Dracula!  If you elect to skip the origin story, well then the count respectfully invites you to “vuck off!” Choose wisely reader. ***   Diabetic Dracula: Was it a Gerbil or a Hamster?By: PackyIt was an obnoxiously warm night in the Casa de Dracula, or at least the Master thought it was. A single bead of sweat slowly swam its way down the…

The Birth of Diabetic Dracula #AmWriting #DiabeticDracula

Think of today’s original fiction piece as a movie pitch for Adam Sandler’s next direct to Netflix movie. It’s absurdly silly, it requires an extreme amount of linguistic overacting, and it’s a straight up comedy – all perfect for Sandler. Also, it would be a hard “R” rated horror-comedy, which would diversify his movie portfolio nicely. So if you are reading this, Mr. Adam Sandler, and you like it: call me – I’ll write the hell out of a movie for you! We could co-write the movie together, how awesome…

The Catalogers of Time: The Library of Alexandria

The Catalogers of Time Series started with the incident at Fort Phantom Hill and then continued with the fiery demise of Polonus Vorstius. Today we find the Smithsonian’s Historical Discovery Unit in a state of flux. Inter-personal strife and technical set backs have put the future of this costly operation in jeopardy. They need to prove that the exorbitant cost of their division will bear valuable fruit for the Smithsonian Institute. The Library of Alexandria “More coffee!” Mr. Simon hollered across the lab to an intern as he used a microfiber cloth…

The Day After the Party #ShortScript #OriginalFiction

Back around 2006, my friend Bobby and I were heavily into the idea of being the next generation of filmmakers. We thought we would be Rodriguez and Tarantino 2.0. Flash forward to 10 years later and we both still have our dreams and ambitions, we both just go after them in different ways now. But back then, we tried to do a lot of things together from writing, to filming and going to the movies (for research of course!). We liked to write scripts, whether short or long, and then trade…

100 Word Challenge: Lose a Vowel #ewe 

So, I have been challenged with writing a brief note that is missing a vowel of my choosing. It was hard to choose, however I landed on the vowel ewe. I am speaking phonetically, to be clear, as I do not mean to talk at length with regard to an “of age” female sheep. I’m likely capable and mentally able to keep on prattling on, dealing with this whole sheep shenanigan, yet I believe that this time will be better served speaking on other matters directly related to the lack…

20 Miles to Texas #OriginalFiction #Script #Snippet

*** Brief introduction from the author – I have been, in some capacity working on this screenplay for quite a while. “20 Miles to Texas” is a horror script concept that deals directly with irrational fear and how each individual reacts differently to the idea of fear, which ultimately allows it to manifest in a way that is tailored specifically to the person experiencing it. The idea was to write a script that jettisoned the 90’s tradition of a slasher story that involved a cast of around 6 obnoxious teens where…

Postwritum is a Serious Condition and is Very Real #Postwritum #NaNoWriMo

Postwritum The birth of a novel can trigger a jumble of powerful emotions, from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. But it can also result in something you might not expect — depression. Many NaNoWriMo writers experience the “postwritum novel blues” after completing their first 50,000 words in just 30 days, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Novel blues typically begin within the first two to three days after winning NaNoWriMo, and may last for up to two weeks. But some NaNoWriMo writers experience a more severe, long-lasting form of…

From the Journal of Gwendolyn Parker: Private Investigator #OriginalFiction

***Brief Intro from the author. As I was getting ready for NaNoWriMo, I had 2 ideas that I had been bandying about for NaNoWriMo. Then, out of the blue I had an idea to write a P.I. story, about a secret society and other such shenanigans. I wanted to write something that set the tone for the main character, so I wrote up a Journal entry, where in she tells the conclusion to one of her own cases in her own words. It’s the perfect way to introduce the character…

Thrice in a Lifetime: Chapter 2 #TIAL #NaNoWriMo

*** A brief note from the author: Your about to read the first draft of the second chapter of a novel I have been working on for awhile now (started it during NaNoWriMo 2 years ago, and now it’s nearly finished!). ** it may be beneficial to read Chapter 1 first ** The concept is simple, Maverick McCormick wakes up without a memory in his head. Desperate to figure things out, his memories start to come back to him, but are they in fact his memories? Is he really this person? What you are…

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions #NaNoWriMo

I have a decision to make. A rather tough one. I have 2 ideas that I am outlining for the upcoming NaNoWriMo event in November. Both are sound ideas, but in the immortal words of the Highlander, “there can be only one!” At least there can be only one that I use as my NaNoWriMo novel. In case you missed my other post on the matter, or this is your first time reading my blog, I will be participating in the NaNoWriMo event this year. What is NaNoWriMo? According to…
