Tales from the Asylum?

Okay, so the writing prompts largely failed, partially due to the insanity of the prompts, partially due to utter writing fail. But now I have something else floating in my head due to too much talk of Lovecraft between myself and friends.

I have a couple of short stories and the rough plot for a longer tale which I'm planning out relatively decently and will probably post excerpts of up here. Also, some friends have their own Lovecraftian short stories to contribute; maybe getting a small anthology we could try and publish. Which would be freaking awesome.

So for now, lots of research, reading further into the Mythos then I had previously and planning these tales. It should be fun.

Yeah, NaNo kinda crapped out on me.

I had no plot, motivation fled me as I tried to think of one.

I will try again next year. And I will get a better plot I hope. For now, I haven't been writing much. The shop I worked at went out of business over Christmas and whilst my partner makes enough to support us both, my raging insomnia has been growing worse with the lack of structure in my life.

So, I think I'm gonna try the alphabet thing again; and if anyone out there actually reads this, feel free to request anything. I do some fanfic, posit a query. Or if you want to know more about the characters I write, let me know.

Just a quicky this time, working out a plot here, kinda. Will most likely end up bringing in characters who have not previously been metioned in works about this universe!

I've been neglecting this, but life got a helluva lot busier since I last wrote and my muse is a bit petered out.

Life is less stressful in many ways but new ons have added in and I just have difficultly thinking of things to write of when it came so easily before.

Any tips on getting around writers block?

This one started upbeat but got quite serious, but to be honest it fits the character. Yet another one for my Urban Fantasy 'verse. I need a name for it... Suggestions?
