Take a walk with me to.....
The Dark Side!
The Dark side, to me, is about things that go bump in the night. It's about sitting around the camp fire and scaring the crap out of yourself with ghost stories. It's about making anything happen with your mind. The Dark Side is about seeing a cute clown that makes kids laugh and turning it into
the scariest creature on the planet.
It's about other planes, universes, dark holes. The unexplainable. It's about being able to think of things outside of the box. It's about being able to bring people's darkest fears out in the open and turning them into someone's reality. To speak the unspeakable and then to be able to write about it.
Stephen King dubbed the king of Horror. He can write the scariest horror stories in the whole world and rank in the top three horror novelists of the year EVERY TIME. Do you ever wonder what goes through Stephen King's head? His book "Stand By Me" is one of my favorite books and movies of all times. It's not necessarily because of the plot of them searching for a dead body. It's because of the relationship between the characters. Each one of them having certain characteristics the reader (or watcher) falls in love with or falls in hate with throughout the movie. Then "Misery" comes along. He totally captures the reader in the 'what's gonna happen next' spider web and weaves them completely through until the end. Always making the end a- not-what-you-would-expect-out-of-a-normal-every-day-writer's-ending. This guy is good. He inspires me to write the creepy stuff.....
So when you lie awake in bed tonight wondering what the next day's going to bring remember to say a little prayer before you go to sleep. The prayer that protects you from all the little things that go bump in the night. From all the ghost stories that are told around the camp fire. To protect you from being whisked away during the middle of the night from the monsters in your nightmares. From all that lingers in the silence of the darkness. But, most importantly......remember to sleep with one eye open. Just incase one of them might escape........
On a much lighter note.....
I love the art of writing. If it's a good story it's a good story! I love the humorous, the sappy (sometimes, but I have to be in the mood for them) and the mysterious! I've got quite the managerie of stories on this thing so explore as much as you like. Please leave comments! I would love to read them! Thank you!
I also want you all to know that I do appreciate the people that have come in and critique'd my work and are honest fans! It makes me feel good to know that my story telling is reaching people and some of them actually like it! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! It is sooooo appreciated! I look forward to those orange boxes every day! :)
I've put quite a few more poems up and am working on my short stories. "KILL YOU!" and "Tick Tick Tick Tick" are two of my most recent. I'm working on short stories that are on a lighter note for those that don't like those kind of works. I've even been conjuring up a romance story in my head. It definitely isn't my kind of genre but I'll give anything a try once. Don't be surprised if someone gets killed with an ice pick at the end or something. It's just the way I am. LoL. I'll see what I can come up with! :)
I wrote a descriptive practice called "Lil' Coffee Shop on the Corner". I pictured Booksie as a regular writer's group that met every day at this wonderful little coffee shop on the corner and described it from the imagery in my mind. I hope you like it.
If you've read "Lil' Coffee Shop on the Corner" Part 1 then you must read Part 2. You never know what this practice sheet will turn out to be. We're just now getting to know our characters. If you've met Jim, Mabel, Candy, Joe you will love Gus. These friends have been friends for a long time. Enjoy the humor, the banter back and forth and the fact that you just really don't know if this story is about anyting at all! LoL. I just love it because of the place that it is.
Please remember these stories are in their rough drafts and do need a little work on detail, grammar and spelling. If you'd like to critique them that would be great. But, be gentle with me! I do look forward to the orange boxes that appear on my Booksie page everyday!
Thank you everyone! :)
