It has been AGES since I was a regular G+ user, but I'm curious to see if anybody in my circles happens to still check it out. And since back when I originally posted this (back in 2012), it never actually got any replies, I'm very curious to see what'll happen in 2015...

I want to write some more horror short stories, because I miss it. I enjoyed the outlet. I keep having nuggets of good ideas at inopportune times, then forget them before I'm in a place to jot them down. So what I want is some inspiration. I have had plenty of success in fiction writing building off of seemingly random idea seeds given (even inadvertently) by other people, so I'd like to try it out.

Your mission, Google+ friends, should you choose to accept it, is to give me (via private message or comment) one sentence that sums up a scene that could be part of a horror short story. It should not be overtly horrific on its own, but something that could be subtly scary or even completely normal, which is even more of a challenge for me. For example, driving by a cemetery and seeing a white-haired man sitting on a bench writing something in a notebook. That's it (and one I've actually already used to write a short story). I reserve the right to transform it a bit if it spawns a scene that slightly differs from the original sentence.

Your reward, if I use it, is credit for inspiration if I can write enough to justify publishing a book of short stories.

Annnnnnnnnnd, GO!

Hahahaha! I love this! And not just because I'm in it. Totally coincidental ;-)

I know I keep asking about this, but nobody is saying anything, so I will keep it up.

If you or anyone you can personally vouch for is knowledgeable enough in any of the following non-D&D RPGs to be a good GM for them, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! The sooner the better! I need more GMs to help out at AndoCon! Looking specifically for these:
* Eclipse Phase
* Exalted
* Shadowrun
* Farscape
* Serenity
* Any superhero RPG (Brave New World, DC, Marvel, etc)
Will take help in the following:
* Scion
* World of Darkness (but especially some of the lesser-known settings like Promethean, Geist, and Changeling)
At this point, I don't really need any D&D DMs, but if you want to help out at AndoCon and D&D is all you know, go ahead and let me know there too.

Reposting since this got basically no traction:

Calling DMs: If you have wisdom and/or hilarity from your experiences as a Dungeon Master, and have good writing style, and would like to share said experiences, please let me know! I'm working up a D&D blog (I've already registered the domain), and I'd love to share the spotlight! There will be an "audition".

OK, so my website is about to get a MASSIVE overhaul. I'm talking some major changes. I'm gonna try to start utilizing HTML5 and CSS3 and jQuery,  not to mention trying to just make it NOT look like it was coded by a college n00b amateur, but rather a senior web developer with 5 years of real-world experience XD

If all goes well, I should have something worth looking at in a couple of weeks. My aim for 100% completion is mid-August.

As if anyone cares XD

Sometimes I think that E-mail clients need to force the "Forward" butoon to open Snopes.com when clicked, to remind people to check their "facts" before sending.

Beginning of my last day at eVestment Alliance. It's been a great run for the past almost-2 years, and I am very sad to be leaving. But hopefully the new job will present new opportunities for greatness.
