Did I really not post in 2016? Apparently! I think I took an unplanned hiatus, but I also think I am back on the writing train. Novels. Ugh. Why couldn’t I have gone the painter route, or sculpture, or anything but writing. And novels no less. Writing is tedious, time consuming, exhausting, and frustrating. I really do hate it sometimes. The words are a harsh mistress, and they beat you even harder if you don’t know how to use them. Say good-bye to ego; pitiless self-examination is your best friend now. This is where the writer of novels lives.
But I do have stories to tell, and that’s enough.
On a side note, I listen to different music when I write on Gnostics or Locked and Loaded. For Gnostics I play a mix of old school post-punk and 80’s goth. Joy Division, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie Sue, and such. For LnL I tend towards electronica, or a more industrial-metal sound. Tool, NIN, and Fear Factory do the trick for the action side, and different kinds of psy-trance for the higher level stuff.
