Wednesday Doldrums Music and More Post.
So there I was, sitting at my desk the other day, feeling that maybe I need to find a way to open up Needle City a little more. The solution I found to this quandary was to begin posting, from time to time, items regarding things other than writing.
This could serve a couple purposes:
1. As there’s just not a lot of news in my little, wine saturated life at the moment of the writing-related nature, it would keep the blog flowing forward through time, rather than wandering aimlessly as a forgotten derelict ship on the oceans of the internetz tubez.
2. This would give me the freedom to talk about the other things in my life that make me bounce about like a four month old puppy in search of a tree.
So, without further ado, here’s a rough tape of me playing guitar. And no, I am by no stretch of the imagination a good producer (or guitarist), lol.
Here’s something that’s very cool. The Paladins, live in Holland.
And well, okay, here’s something writing-related. In case you missed it, Ten Rules For Writing Fiction. To say that there’s a wealth of information here is like calling Raymond Chandler a scribbler.
Finally, because I LOVE abandoned spaces and how haunting and sad they are, here’s a very cool photo essay of abandoned shopping malls. I’ve done my fair share of walking through abandoned spaces like this, and I think it’s gone a long way to informing my writing. Abandoned warehouses, buildings, etc, seem to always find their way into my stories.
