The Forgotten: Pages 69 and 70 – THE END

I’ve posted the last few pages of “The Forgotten” all at once.
Here’s page 69 – Epilogue 1
Here’s page 70 – Epilogue 2
Each page is a bit longer than a normal page, and both put together are around 2500 words. I didn’t really see the sense in dragging these out into next week, so here they are all at once.

The Forgotten: Page 66

Here is Page 66 of the serial fantasy (horror?) story, “The Forgotten”.

The Forgotten: Page 65

Page 65 of The Forgotten has been posted.

Here’s a question that only writer’s of scifi and horror have: Do you refer to a possessed entity by its physical identity, or by the identity of the possessing soul? In this scene, I have TWO… which means I have to do odd things like saying “Rinius’ body did this…” or “The boy did that…”, which sounds kind of awkward to me. Somehow, I don’t think non-genre writers have ever had to contend with that one.

Review: Trick ‘r Treat

What it’s about:
This is one of those anthology movies that contains several stories. In this case, it’s four, all of which take place in the same town on the same Halloween night.

Each story is complete on its own, but they’re all connected.

Nothing new here…

There’s no update today. I’m still in Maine, still working on my 13-day work week. Nothing’s been written since last Monday.
