IN TWO MINDS

Flash Fiction Chapter 11 by Written By A Moody Pen: “I have half a mind to leave you here alone to find the ghost you decided to make friends with.” “And the other half?” “It’s telling me I’d actually miss you if something happened to you.” “I like that half.” @WOLIWAIS

 

“I have half a mind to leave you here alone to find the ghost you decided to make friends with.”

Flash Fiction by Written By A Moody Pen: “How on earth can you be so pessimistic all the time?!” “Because no one’s ever proved me wrong yet. No matter how desperately I wanted them to.” @WOLIWAIS

“Because no one’s ever proved me wrong yet. No matter how desperately I wanted them to.”

Excerpt #4: Tall Hair

No particular rant today. (Or maybe I had one and just forgot?)

Just happy I’ve finally progressed to introducing a character into the story without threats and death knells ringing. 😛 Of course, that definitely isn’t all that’s happened in the story thus far. But by looking at the excerpts I’ve posted alone, it does seem like it’s trying too hard to be gloomy.

Hence, a change. 😉

 

Et voila.

 

@WOLIWAIS. Story Excerpt: "...A woman decked in pink ruffles and very tall hair strode in..."

 

 

Excerpt #3 – Ominous Ride

Maybe October and the whole Halloween connection influenced the mood of this excerpt. But then again, I ain’t exactly writing about butterflies and honeysuckle in this story. 😛

I’ve actually made very, very slow progress this month. Because, at first, I just blanked out and couldn’t figure out how to move forward in the story without jumping entire chapters altogether. And then I got so busy that I didn’t even have time to just double-click on the document and stare at it for a while in the hopes of being clobbered by inspiration if I stared at it hard enough. *Sigh!*

On the other hand, I have written more than two chapters now. So while I still have a loooong way to go, at least I’m not at a stand-still again. (And maybe being proud of completing two chaps is pathetic(?) — I don’t know — but I’m still proud of it anyway. So yay!) 🙂

 

Well, that’s all I really have to rant about this time. I’ve just been busy with completing actual paying projects and a number of other do-or-die (sort of) commitments recently. But hopefully this month will see more progress.

Anyways. Down to the excerpt:

 

#Story / #Novel #Excerpt. @WOLIWAIS. "...The ride there had been jerky and uncomfortable with plenty of ominous silences and subverted, threatening remarks from the guards. And the looming stone castle they'd finally stopped in front of had been more intimidating than stone walls had any right to be..."
