My excursion is over. And man was it awesome. The entire get-a-way was put together by my wife to celebrate my 30th birthday. I’m not big on birthday parties and stuff like that, so this was the perfect solution. For the past week we stayed in a cabin with our dogs and were bums.
For the entire week I read over my novel. Wrote my short-story for Thunder on the Battlefield and make great progress. And got caught up watching an “Ink Masters” marathon on Spike TV.
Can’t get any better than that.
In addition to the reading and writing, I think I have some germs for new story ideas. Last night I watched the movie “Constantine” for the first time. Decent enough. The premises are pretty fantastic. Then, while packing up to leave, the show “Supernatural.” I’ve heard a lot of people talk about it and again, from what I’ve seen, I like the premises.
And it got me thinking. Maybe I should try my hand at my own Religious themed dark-fantasy. Then I remembered a setting that I wanted to write a story in. Russia in a post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Then the little idea-germ bit me. Oh-ho, what about Tribulation times set in Russia. Where man-kind fights to the lead up of Armageddon.
Where will you be? Muahahaha.
So, as you can see a successful vacation. I had wanted to finish reading over my book and finish the short story, but I think what I did get out of it was perfect. Can’t wait to see what will come of that idea.
