A most formidable actress scene-mate would capture the BPs. We would hold them down and pretend to regurgitate food into their mouths. Nobody got mad. The foreman role was fantastic, but I asked myself at the end of the season, if there was anything that could have made it better. The only thing I could think of would be if I were able to sing. I tried to come up with a role for myself, somewhere on site, that singing might be appropriate. We build with whatever material we can come up with, and we had access to lots of pallets, so we built a pallet maze.
After we built it, we realized that it was similar to being in a cow stockade. The high, wooden walls were like a cattle chute. The scene, though, was not played well. I thought that would be a place that I could bring a lot of energy. I could be a singing cowboy! I knew then, that I would need to learn some rudimentary guitar, and make up some scary cowboy songs. I kept it in mind, and in May, I began to put my plan into action.
I wrote a couple of songs, and while driving a truck on a long highway trip by myself, I practiced singing these songs at the top of my lungs. The last week of May, I went to a local music store and bought a beginner guitar. I looked up learning the guitar on the interwebs, and came up with: to make a chord, press three strings on the neck.
If it sounds good, you have a chord. I could not figure out how to change chording while playing, so I would just make up a chord that sounded about right, and stay with it the whole song. I figured that if I strum properly, I could fake my way through. Production work began the first week of August. In a warehouse, a small crew of us build and paint sets through the month in preparation for loading in to the site. At this time, I designed my maze. Included are hinged doors to change the path, sliding doors to block passages, and secret rooms.
This maze was going to be ten times in size as the previous maze. I knew I wanted to be able to walk around on top, but I was not sure if that was going to be feasible. The second week of September, with an increase in crew size, we began our load in to the site and the build itself. We only had three weeks to build our haunt. This was a daunting task, but it is that way every year.
The pallet maze was just one of many things that I needed to build. It was very labor intensive. When my supervisor pulled me off that task, I would come in early to sneak in some extra work on it. We are a tight crew. We had our own grill on site and during the entire pre-production, we cooked our own meals on site.
Opening week, we were behind and struggling. On opening day, we were so busy, that we never made arrangements to eat lunch. We tried to make some kind of a food thing happen, but it did not.
I had been busting my rear end without stop, all day. No food nor rest but one bottle of water. The time came when I had to quit working on production, and get into my costume. As I was going to be up on top of the pallet maze on a pallet catwalk, I did not want to wear cowboy boots. I wanted to wear my regular work boots, so to cover the boots, I got some black, fringed, cowboy chaps. This was the last week of September, and in Alabama, it is still hot.
While putting on my rodeo clown make-up, I realized that I was going to be too hot, so I took off the tee shirt. Now I am wearing no shirt under the duster. I get to my scene and we start. I am up on top of the pallet maze, playing and singing. I have a monster actor manning the exit door, and another actor monster with a chainsaw, inside the maze.
I am soon drenched in sweat. The singing and playing requires more exertion than I had expected. I had no food that day, and had worked extremely hard. I had just sweated away what little water I had in my system. I knew that there was a good possibility that I was going to fall out and die, so I took off the duster. Now I am up on this pallet maze catwalk, following patrons around playing, singing, and teasing, wearing chaps, no shirt, a cowboy hat and guitar. The exit for the maze was hidden. People would come in, wander, and finally realize they were trapped. The maze was so big, that I had to put in three fire exits.
Patrons would try to use these. I would severely chastise them. I also had the assistance of monsters on the outside of the maze that would keep the patrons corralled. As opposed to previous roles, the cowboy is nice and friendly. I am only mean to the patrons that need being mean. It was so much fun! The patrons had a real sense of accomplishment when they finally escaped.
At the end of the night, all the actors reconvene to call roll. An actress and actor of the night are selected. The actor coordinator, called me forward as actor of the night, opening night. So that was it. For the rest of the run, even when it got cold, I was the naked, singing cowboy. This is the only photograph of me as this role in existence. It is on one of two very cold nights in which I am still shirtless but with a pulled back duster. Dig it, Miss Plumtartt! I beg your pardon, sir, but did you say that you were consulted for writing wisdom?
Tell me, why did you not explain your lack of understanding on the subject and make your apologies, eh hem? My first few books were not that way, but my style quickly turned in that direction. Now, I write in complete dialogue! You are often engaged in battles, brawls, and bruising ballyhoo. Surely, you must indulge in a momentary exposition, whilst immersed in combat, eh hem? If there is a fight going on, there is always someone around egging it on, or commentating and whatnot. Most reviewers say it takes a minute to get used to, but then you hardly notice at all.
This would be your habit of bringing rhythm and song into the novels. Your first five only have traces of music here and there, but with the sixth book and through the tenth, there is singing throughout. Jekyll and Mr. I hope I have not given out any bad advice! Happy Writing everybody! Your pals, Icky and Persephone. Hi folks. This blog post is prompted by Cait, of the aptly named writing blog, Paper Fury. Cait is a phenomenal writer and an amazing blogger with some of the most clever themes on the web. I would rather speak about a book I wrote this past summer. I like to write stories with particular themes and thought a Dr.
Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde story would be fun. I read the Robert Louis Stevenson book but did not care for it. I read it again, and loved it even more. Now I knew what to do with the story. I bounced ideas around with Miss Plumtatrt for a few weeks and then dove in.
Our protagonist is tricked into helping construct a device of great destructive capabilities. Unbeknownst to our hero, he has also been targeted for a dangerous experiment that transforms the naive chap from mouse to monster. Murder is at our every turn and Victorian London reels from the terror that has descended upon it. I try to write steampunk paranormal stories, but they keep coming out as humorous. I am painfully shy of violence, yet there is action and amazing fight scenes all along the way. In an effort to keep the action active and in the present tense, I tend to write almost exclusively in dialogue.
I am told that this is unusual and that I am taking a risk by writing this way, yet this is how my heart tells me to write.follow site

I also feel that this is how I can develop an individual way to write. I would like to think all of the music, singing, and rhythm would be my branding, but I think it is the dialogue-centric style that a reader may take to be my literary fingerprint. I am a gifted tinker from rural Alabama. Where I am, it is the year I have invented a trans-universe-temporal-scriptograph to facilitate this comunication. I used to think that I was the hero in my stories, but I have recently come to the startling conclusion that in actuality, Miss Plumtartt is the real hero, and that I am the bungling sidekick.
Miss Plumtartt is the smartest, most beautiful, and bravest girl in the whole wide world! Somehow, against all odds and reason, she has become really fond of me. Alas, this has caused her to endure many frustrating hardships in our latest adventure. Big Nick is a shining example of British strength and vitality. His tremendous size is matched by his determination to rid London of the evil, fiendish monster that plagues the Great City. Ace reporter in the competitve London newspaper world, Dipsy is a big, strong and determined girl. She is relentless and resourceful in tracking down a story.
Her constant laughter and good cheer keep her Scotland Yard Detective boyfriend Nichodimus in good spirts. In an effort to develop a serum capable of changing the very nature of a man, this gifted, though ruthless scientist has no qualms about taking advantage of any test specimen he can find. The self-absorbed and inconsiderate Professor easily dupes our dimwitted hero with catastrophic results. Three singing newsboys whose names are similar to Dr.
Outline, research, stocking up on chocolate, howling, etc.? No outline, I am a seat of the pants author. A few cups of coffee is all that is needed to get the ball rolling.
Steampunk – R&R Book Tours
Rhythm and song! I was shy about including music at first, but now, I love having fun, interactive material for the reader to indulge. The Earth, after having passed through its tail, is wondrously changed. Inventiveness abounds, with astounding spring, steam, or electricity based motivation. However, there has been an alarming increase in varied supernatural occurences as well.
Miss Plumtartt and I are often caught up in happenstance concerning world-gobbling monsters. Our hero has a need to do what is right and good. Unfortunately, said hero is rather dense and in the attempt to do good, brings an avalanche of ruin upon his head. He must come to grips with the duplicity of others and find it in himself to overcome enemies from within and without to do the right thing.
A theme of honesty versus duplicity runs throughout the book.

I think that starting my stories is my weakest attribute, but I always manage to come up with a humdinger of a happy ending each time! This was a fun book to write! I thought I had a few weeks before a job began for me, and I started the book thinking that I would not have any interruptions, however, the job started early. To write the book, I needed to go to bed early, so that I could wake up early and write. This worked out perfectly, as I had no distractions in the early morning hours. End — This is my fave, because I actually made it! Ohh, but it is bittersweet, as well, because it has come to a close.
The Two Faces of Temperance
Is there a specific snack you eat? Do you listen to music? I like to write in one big deluge, as I snack on cookies and coffee while not being distracted by music or anything else. I have to turn the internet and emails off, too. Feel free to show us a picture of your writing space! Icky and Kitka. Do you need a cheer squad or do you work alone like, ahem, Batman? I like to bounce ideas around with Miss Plumtartt.
She reads along as I write and helps to edit and catch typos. When it is time to write, it will just pour out.

That method probably does not work for everyone, but it is what works for me. Just give it a go. I did not give it a try until I was a geezer. Now, I love it! I wrote and published my Fantasy saga of epic proportions! The charming dragons steal the show. Icky and Mr.
