On the Road

A tiny/huge update on “Lie”. I confirmed my first interview last week. It gets published in early-October. Baby steps.

After I finish this batch of short stories, poems, and essays I’m working on, I’m thinking about writing “Tangle Core”. “Murderhounds”, I could write and film anytime. “Tangle Core”, though, is a story that needs to be told as soon as possible. If for no other reason than I have to do it before someone else does. Because the essential idea of the film is that it’s my generation angry with apathy at the lies and broken promises of the previous generation. “Go to college, everything will work out” springs to mind. But it won’t be done in a whiny way. That’s annoying. I wanna approach it from a slightly nihilistic angle. These… “cries from a generation” type of stories tend to be loud and angsty and full of life. “Easy Rider” springs to mind. I wanna tears from a story that’s dead inside.

Over the weekend, I witnessed “The World’s End” twice. It was spectacular, save for the fact that both times, a couple to my immediate right made out throughout it. Two different couples. I didn’t think that pubs and blue made people randy. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do more: slap them because they’re being annoying or slap them because they’re missing the film. I kept my hands to myself, though. Not sure if I’ll be able to do that mentally when “The World’s End” catches on. I basically dress like Gary King (minus the shades and silver) and people don’t really try hard when they wanna make fun of someone, so I get to prepare for that. Happened with “The Matrix”, which was great except I had a full head of hair yet people kept calling me Morpheus. Oh well, I loved “The World’s End” so they won’t be able to get me down. Even drew something:

Ale to the King

Well, back to the mines.

Give the first four chapters of my novel, “Lie”, a read. Courtesy of Goodreads. It’s a surreal dramedy about four gals who go on vacation to help with a life-changing situation. If you like what you’ve read, you can pick it up for only $1.99 wherever eBooks are sold. Thanks.
