Has anyone here read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson? Not my usual type of book, but my mom made me read it, and I actually really enjoyed it. This is one of my favorite quotes from it.

Today on the blog: What a ten year old video game taught me about writing. The writers and artists who made Silent Hill 2 were really good at evoking emotion, and not just fear. I try and dissect how they did it.

Are there any gamers here? Any old enough to remember when the Silent Hill franchise was young? Silent Hill 2 is one of my favorite games, and I actually learned a lot about writing from it. This post is me trying to gain some insight in to exactly what Silent Hill 2 and games like it taught me about how to tell a compelling story.

Is anyone here doing #NaNoWriMo? I find it really motivating. I'm working on a sequel to my novel Dark City. Dark City is about the son of a crime boss, coming of age, and the sequel is going to be about him as an adult.

What are you guys focusing on this NaNo season?

I feel like some of you might not know what my cat looks like. She is the cutest animal.

I've been reading a peculiar, fascinating crime fiction book called The Thief by Fuminori Nakamura. This is my favorite quote. The narrator is a pickpocket, and a really good one, so he sees people from a slightly different perspective.

Wednesday WIP Update!!

I have decided to write a sequel for Dark City. Or rather, the sequel has decided to write me. Two sequels, in fact. Writing me.

Let's start again. I have decided to write two sequels to Dark City. One will follow a new character, who only a select few have met. The other will follow the main characters from Dark City (those that survive :0 !) as they embark on new adventures.

Vague enough? I've only got the barest threads of a plot right now, but just you wait, just you wait....

Happy NaNo everyone! Is anyone here going to participate this year? I'm pretty excited because I have a fresh new project I'm just getting started on. I've never won before, though, so any NaNo tips or tricks you guys have would be very appreciated!

Good luck all! Happy writing :D

This novel was sooo good. As a crime fiction writer, I think I want to grow up to be Don Winslow. If you're into gritty, realistic crime fiction and thrillers, you'll like it.
