my best friend in college told me this one time. she wasn't being mean when she said it, but... i remember it perfectly. i had shown her a picture of keri russell drinking a beer. it went along with her joke about going on david letterman. beforehand, she'd taken a couple shots of tequila or jager or something of the sort.
i liked the picture because 1) keri russell is beautiful, and a) it was a joke of sorts. she likes (or liked--this was about ten years ago) her liquor. was the picture interesting without the story? no. but knowing why the photo was taken made it mean something.
this is what i love and this is what i do.
i see pictures, paintings, photographs--what have you, and a story magically develops in my mind. (interestingly enough, i only recently put two and two together...) for example, last night before i went to bed (ok, this morning ;), i posted this on my other blogspot. it doesn't quite fit there except i was able to weave something about writing in there.. the day before, i posted this about marilyn monroe. again, i made it go along with writing, well reading actually, but...it just doesn't fit there that well.
I'm an freelance author/editor who also has a few works in progress (novels).
One is a dark urban fantasy with a 24yo MC -- I'm querying/submitting it right now.
I'm starting the sequel even though I didn't expect it to have one...
Another WiP is an adult sci-fi/fantasy.
I have a memoir going plus a few others, along with some short stories and flash fiction.
