Writing 30 Minutes for 30 Days: Day 9

Today's writing prompt came from +Timothy Cole. He provided quite an evocative first paragraph. The dense description in this one kept me from writing as much as I wanted. I think I will most definitely be coming back to this one again.

Glow - Part 1

Her muscles ached. The cold peat slurry squelched each time she freed a foot, only to plant it again a little further ahead. She'd long since lost her shoes. One weary step after another, she forged a path for the radium blue glow on the horizon.

She could hear the chattering of the proto-hounds not far behind. They had not yet found her pheromone trail, but it was only a matter of time. Even the fetid smells of the Glowing Waste could not long put them off the scent. Her only hope lay in losing herself in the ruins ahead. If there were ruins ahead, and not just an endless sea of cypress and singing mangrove.

She froze as something slid past her ankle in the muck; something slick and cold. She swallowed a rising panic and prayed fervently that she would not hear the flabby slap of the leechlion's tail or feel the hot, rotting moss of its breath at her neck. The stories of what it did to its victims crawled through her mind. Its paralyzing bite. Its slow feeding. Its ability to replace the nourishing blood of it's prey with a preservative that kept it alive for days and days and days.

But she could hear only the gurgle of swamp gas, the yip of froggins in the trees. And the chattering of the proto-hounds behind her, faster now and more erratic. They had found her trail. Her scent.

The end was fast approaching.

(To be continued . . .)

Hello all! I'm doing my first charity walk this Saturday for Families of SMA, and I am so close to my fundraising goal of $500, I can taste it. Anyone want to help contribute to eradicating the #1 genetic killer of infants in America?

The magic begins at 1:10. But it's worth the wait, I assure you.

Okay epic fantasy readers of Brandon Sanderson! Are you out there?

I got one of his books from the library to check him out. Warbreaker. (His more famous Mistborn books have a waiting list a mile long).  Anyway I've read the prologue and first chapter of this hefty, hefty tome. 

And it is terrible. Pedestrian prose that telegraphs character actions and motivations with the subtly of a sledgehammer, and a magic system that might be fun in a computer game, but seems utterly contrived and artificial in a book.

But it's got 4 stars on Goodreads and people are raving about it!

So my shot in the dark question is this: Does it get better? Should I bother reading further?

I saw the FB post too a couple of weeks ago. But that is key, I actually saw that. I'm with you. G+ is a much cleaner world (though they have mucked it up a bit). FB just has the damn critical mass because they got there first. Well, after myspace, but with a better product. I think G+ get's most of it's "growth" because it provides a better outlet for following folks than FB does, especially geeks. I also understand it is doing better outside the US than in.

Wow. Prometheus was well worth the midnight showing. Will have to see it again. Also, I rarely say this b/c I almost always try to avoid it, but it really should be seen in 3D. Scott actually uses it to incredibly awesome effect. You forget you are watching it and it enhances everything, emotionally as well as visually.

I had high hopes for this flick and it exceeded all expectations. Go see it.

Introduction
Hi, I'm Dave. I'm a writer, occasional poet, and former and hopefully future webcomiker. I am the co-creator of The Dada Detective, Vol 1 & Vol 2. a webcomic that ran for four years and two hundred strips. 

I'm also writer of The Dada Alphabet: An Absurdist's Illustrated Primer, and the short comic collection, Likely Stories: All of the Common, None of the Sense.  Both illustrated by the incomparable Stephanie Freese and co-written by Matthew Wood.

My short stories have appeared in Sinister Bedfellows: The Anthology, and A Child's Guide to Teasing Bees: Simple Lessons for Difficult Children (not yet published). 

I'm currently developing a new fantasy adventure comic called Unreal City Tales with Peter Venables & Matthew Wood.

I live and work in Raleigh.
