In the story I’m brainstorming for (see here and here), the tale of a Christmas superstorm that’s rather sprawling but has as its heart Georgia Roadhouse, a character I invented, who has a vacation house in the Shenandoah, the very heart of the storm, and … Continue readingThe Lives of Georgia and Decca: More Thoughts
My last update on the brainstorming process for my story came a few days ago, and I have some new material! I won’t actually write it, let alone release it, for a while, since it’s bulging into a novel-length concept, and I’ll be busy with … Continue readingChristmas Blizzard: More Brainstorming
Working up the scenario for my Great Christmas Blizzard, which I’ve decided will take place in 2045 (because why not make it take place the same year as the great rogue comet in one of my other stories, right?), I find that my attempt at … Continue readingThe Ultimate Storm?
In the course of brainstorming a vacation home for my character Decca Roadhouse, I’ve thought of another character, Georgia Roadhouse, her little cousin who’s just like her, right down to having a vacation home, sporting red ringlets, and guzzling red wine, but, in stark contrast … Continue readingA Christmas Blizzard Romance in the Shenandoah?

I was reading up on the Flying Dutchman last night, which I can’t help but feel is the coolest thing ever (to the point that if I got an alt I’d style myself “Willem van der Decken”, i.e. its legendary captain), and I came across … Continue readingA World where if You look far enough You’ll see Yourself…
In a story I’m developing Fia, a competitive ballroom dancer who wants to upgrade her appearance, will get her makeover done in Southern California, at the behest of her (soon-to-be) sister-in-law Katenka, who lives in Malibu: in her own words, close to where all the … Continue readingTaking my Worldbuilding into Southern California
I’ve already shared some thoughts on my concept for a follow-up on a plot thread in “Orphans of Opry Tower” (a story I’ve completed but not published): a character named Fia and her impending big makeover, along with her desire for hot sex and, above … Continue readingA Shipwreck Date in the Kelp Forest?
