Okay, so I’m taking care of mum and her cat. That’s the most benign of my news. Or, I should say it’s the least exciting. Working on my series – Camden’s Follies – I find myself at a loss for some reason. Well, okay, I should be working on finishing the final book in Elder Offensive. But you know, it’s a bit of a drag trying to be certain of how to kill off characters in a way that will be either heart string tugging or just hack off the audience due to how well liked the characters are.
Anyway, I’m surviving on Oreos, Pizza and of course caffeine. I can’t wait till the Comic Book Store and or the Trading Card shop are open. Also, I really want to get Taco Bell in person and NOT via some non – company delivery service.
I’d even revel in having access to Titan Comics Dr. Who! Never mind the idea of putting my set of Amonkhet together.
So, on to more writing since writers generally read my blog.
I’m thinking of trying to either lead in or build around a poem. A little like what Agatha Christie did for one of her more famous murder mysteries whose name escapes me at the moment. I could even parce out the verse as chapter titles!
I’m simply flumoxed over what variety of story. Fancy a go and in depth horror or, perhaps, something of a mystery witha science fiction edge to it?

Anything Bold and Highlighted/Italic I picked up recently.
Okay, so self imposed isolation isn’t that much different from my normal routine. The only exceptions are that I’m home and not at a cafe having coffee and keeping an eye on mass transit time tables. I’m still writing and editing, playing Nintendo to get my mind refersehed for the novel work. I’m watching more films on disc as I have no streaming service and no patience to wait for downloads and such. Pizza and Chinese are the main courses followed by home cooking. I’m still angered, astounded and frustrated by conspiracy idiots and hoarders who think buying out TP, Baby Wipes and Tins of soup, stew and the like are great ideas. C’mon people! There are more who need things like food and such on a weekly basis as we can’t budget or afford to be paranoid like you lot! Quit being greedy and money hungry for at least 1 stinking day in your lives!! End of rant.
I highly recommend getting caught up on series like Good Omens, Older Dr. Who and any Star Trek or better yet, Babylon 5. I’m also prepping to marathon Stargate SG – 1, Atlantis and Universe as well as revisit Firefly.
Please folks, stay home as you can. Comic book and card shops – Please stay open as we need the break and relief from the tedium and something to look forward to taking our minds off this disaster!
Dim the lights, I need no luminescense to find my way I’m between worlds, corridors of fate I feel the breeze, but not the comfort it gives I smell the coolnes, fragrant flowers Sense the life beyond the halls It is the closest to living A reminder of times not spent, nor lived If there were a curse, its name would be as I described A warrior can only battle the known Weapons and their ilk are of little value Onward, though I must go As bravely as facing any hoarde or force of arms Perhaps, love is my final destination, or not The future is rarely written clealry in advance For now, I must retire The doldrums and stagnant routine shall be obeyed A light, no matter how weak Is always a way to travel What strentgh I’ve left, I shall devote to the unknown dark
So, the world in general is in quarantine. Okay. Major hubs, shut down, but mainly we’re still able to do chores or get our shop rounds done. I’m fine with the situation as it won’t last for ever.
With that in mind, I would like to begin to send all my readers my best wishes, healing energy and kind thoughts!
And now, for why I’m the Pirate Poet ~
Chances are, a glimpse is all you need In a room filled with chaos Does the promise of a smile mean anything more? A million thoughts Several hundered conversations A band or juke box play It never fits This grand slice of life I watch my ice melt, slowly Always aware Many a prat fall More than one end begins A fair few beginnings blossom A moment A fragment of eternity To where can we store such treasures, ere the mind A blink of an eye Two thoughts meld as action rears its head Romance? Perhaps, just a glimpse of something more A pantomime for the ages A solilaquy of the robust and broken hearted A wish fulfilled and broken The last call can be heard So, it’s us again Tonight prepares for the morrow For now, shall we dance?
From my books ~ Links to order some quality entertainment from my mind to your eyes! All four of my Camden’s Follies series one! Please Enjoy
