Happy weekend, everyone! I’m still settling in at my new digs in the Land of Enchantment, painting the walls, putting furniture together, and generally keeping every muscle in my body sore.
Crystal the cat seems to have made the adjustment. A few nights I’ve heard her making a midnight romp, and this morning, she wanted to play with her collection of bouncy and fuzzy balls! She also insists on approving any decorating.
Coming Right Up
I’ve mentioned that San Francisco artist, poet, and activist, Rob Goldstein and I got back together with a short story for Lulu, Gramps, and the enigmatic Valentino. I call it “One Million Years B-Lulu.” It’s a little riff on the old movie “One Million Years BC.”
Rob has made terrific illustrations for it. He really got into the spirit of the story. Rob will feature this short story at Sue Vincent‘s blog, but I’ll run it here as well.
That’s Not All
Hang on — that’s not all! I’ve started work on a mini series with blogger Dan Antion. The core of the story was inspired by a Neil Diamond song “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show,” along with the blues legend of the devil at the crossroads and Robert Johnson.
If you will watch the video trailer, you will have some idea of the core components of the story. It’s a pantser tale (spontaneously written), so I don’t know too much more about it yet.
Dan was kind enough to invite me to his fictional bar for a drink at his SoCS post this weekend. I hope you’ll click over and share some conversation with us.
Dan’s photos will help guide my pantser pen. He’ll also give me some random “things” to drive the story. (Most of you are familiar with my “three things” way of writing serials.) I can tell you that the setting is rural Mississippi in the late 1950s to early 60s. My narrator is named Birdie Devovo. Which brings me to your invitation…
Come out to play!
It seems like a long time since I’ve been able to involve you, the reader, in my stories. That actually makes a lot more work for me. However, I love including you. Dan will be giving me photos and two random things. So I invite you to leave one random thing in the comments. That will make the total of three things.
The first episode will post a week from today. All three things will be from Dan on that chapter, but after that I will start including reader “things.”
A rather old blues song has been running around in my head. It helped me write the mystical prologue for the story, so I’ll go ahead and share it. Be sure to leave a random “thing” in the comments. Happy weekend!
And don’t forget!
Coming up, another Roaring Twenties pantser tale
