Thinking of writing a metafictional play in which that's the first line, and the ensuing monologue is all about how the character knows that he's a character, and is wondering who's playing him tonight ("I don't know his name, look him up in your programs... I'll wait"). I'm sure it's been done before, but spun right, I think it could be a lot of fun.
Today is Sunday, which means I ought to be blogging about the Dangerverse, but I didn't post yesterday due to bringing home DOGS (Buddy is two years old, Brando is four months, both black Lab mixes). So today will be a combination of Sampler Saturday and Surpassing Sunday, and probably fairly short.
Saturday's post would have been short in any case, since I haven't been writing very much except Playing with Fire for the past week or so. It's really going well (knock on nearest woodlike substance); I'll give you lots more details, and another snippet, this coming Thursday. Let me know if there's anything you'd like in particular!
The only thing to report in the category of "other writing" is that I'm thinking of putting together a music-themed anthology. I have a finished story, "Fear Itself", and one in the works, currently called "Wild Card", both of which involve music. Together they'd make about half the wordcount of an anthology like Cat Tales. Thoughts?
As for the Dangerverse, well, here we are again. I updated Surpassing Danger last week (thanks to everybody who reviewed), and now it's Sunday once more and no chapter is in sight. I could blame Playing with Fire, or the dogs, or the state of the house, but if I'm going to tell the truth, it's just the place where the story currently is.
You see, we're about to enter a fairly painful stage of SD. We've already had one death, and it's far from the last. Some of them you're prepared for; others may catch you by surprise (one of my betas, after reading the snippet I sent her, messaged me "I thought you weren't doing that!"). Stock up on tissues, folks... you'll need them.
However, we are also about to enter a phase for which I'm not quite prepared. Because of the slowdown in posting over the last few years, I've had a long time to think over some of the plot points which are now coming to fruition, and I'm not entirely sure how they'll look once they're on the screen, rather than in my head all shiny and safe.
Still, I came up with them to be shared, not to hide them away. They won't be perfect when I write them down, because nothing ever is, but I'm hoping that they will satisfy you, or at least content you. To that end, here is a small listing of what we can look forward to, as the Dangerverse wraps up its ninth book and continues into its tenth:
That's all for now! Please comment, review, like, post, whatever you'd care to do, and I shall continue writing! Let me know what topics you might like to hear more about, and I'll do my best... coming up on Tuesday, unless someone supersedes it, a brief lesson in the language called Linmyra, spoken by the lyrror of Trycanta. Cheers!
