Thank God it's Friday!!
Another Friday has rolled around and here we are, staring at the weekend right in the face. Without blinking an eye, we make our plans, sucking every possible minute of those precious and irreplaceable forty eight hours. We plan to stay the course and stay on our diets or we plan two days of drinking and eating debauchery. Either way, we know how we want our weekend to pan out. And how often doesn't it work out the way we were hoping? An unexpected illness, a power outage, a snow storm!
Simple things, common things...Aren't they? All these things that can keep you from your course, do you ever wonder if there are outside influences when these things happen?
My current work delves into the world of demon oppression and infestation, and perhaps possession. My research lately lead me in this direction along with my general train of thought. I don't know how it happened or why, but I found myself re-reading The Amityville Horror and The Exorcist again after many decades.. I was much much younger when I read these books the first time and I have a completely different mind set when I read them now and take something different away with each one. I don't second guess what lead me back to these books and my current fascination with this topic, I just accept it for what it is and go with the flow.
Another thing I am doing differently this time, I am searching for my first beta readers with this book, something I have never done before. I want to know how it is perceived before I even get it published. I also want to know if it is good enough to follow it up with a second book and third book or not, although sometimes the second and third are better than the first, sometimes they fall flat. Does it make you sleep with the light on? Maybe you can't sleep at all? Ahhhh...then I've done my job perfectly!
Till next time one and all, I'll keep the light on for ya.
