The quote is courtesy of my brother. And also courtesy of the tool who is trying to remake The Crow. You shouldn’t remake The Crow. Not that it wouldn’t be cool. Not that it wouldn’t be good. It has the potential to be both of those things. But the original was ALREADY both of those things, and Brandon Lee DIED during it, so just fricken step off.
The Goodreads Giveaway of Sleepwalk Society ends in four days. Please do enter. I’ll send you a copy of the novel. I’ll sign it. I’ll thank you profusely. We can discuss why The Crow shouldn’t be remade together.
Okay, I’ll let that go now. As estimated, Secret Project S was completed last week, and is now in the hands of the agent. This will not be the last you hear of it. However, due to contract clauses, it may be the last you hear of it for about a year. It turned out just as I’d hoped. Being a rather non-plotty writer, I don’t know how much credit I can take for the story. I suspect that it’s little to none. But the TELLING. That’s another thing entirely. And I think the language and the style was dead on for me this time, which it sometimes isn’t. And I mean dead on. On like Donkey Kong. Or like anytime late 90’s Jim Carrey got overstimulated.
I struggle in this blog, with the urge to give writerly advice. But honestly, there’s no end to the writerly advice on the internet, and I’m not at all concerned that it does much good. Anything I could tell you, you could Google and find somewhere else. And writing is such a subjective and personal thing anyway. But if useful info does cross my desk….I’ll post it.
