Happy Halloween, everyone!!

I held my traditional Halloween social for my characters. They all exist together in their Out-of-Story state, but they tend to stick with their plot-mates, so I occasionally hold little events to force interaction. (You know, for funsies)

Anyway, I decided this year to make costumes mandatory, and by assignment only. Here’s a snippet of my Alter Ego dealing with Kaleb’s reaction. I hope everyone had a fun, safe, candy-filled day!

 “Hannah, I’m not wearing this!” Kaleb stormed into the room Hannah was currently using as her ‘office.’ This changed frequently depending on her mood; sometimes with a corporate business feel, sometimes like a cozy therapy room. At the moment, it resembled the backstage of a theater production, what with the costumes she was gleefully doling out on my behalf.

“Wow, I’m shocked,” she said.

“You know I hate math.” Read the rest of this entry

Drabble: My Characters Playing “Never Have I Ever”

Standard

This post features the following characters from my stories:
Matt from The TimeWarp Bill
Lisa from Ball Girl
Wistal from The Suicide Game
Zen from No More Heroes 
No Spoilers 

Pardon me while I ask my characters to do random things for my own amusement 🙂 As usual, I asked my alter-ego Hannah to be the moderator for these little events. This is slightly different from other drabbles in that the characters are completely OOS (Out of Story), meaning that they are fully aware of their status as story characters. Enjoy!

“Sooo… can we start yet, or what?” Matt asked after making a paper airplane out of his game rules and watching it take a disappointingly short flight across the room.

“Hannah said there were supposed to be four of us,” Lisa said as she read her own rules a third time, even though the game wasn’t all that difficult to understand.

A voice called from the hallway, “I found him,” a moment before Hannah led the somewhat disgruntled man inside and pointed sternly at the empty space on the couch. Read the rest of this entry

Exciting news! The TimeWarp Bill, originally published by Spaceports and Spidersilk in April 2013, is now also a part of the delightful webzine The Fast-Forward Festival! You can read if here if you’re interested 🙂 Also, if you found my blog after reading the story, then welcome to my internet playground! 

So, in honor of the reprinting of this story, I’m posting 8 bits of trivia about the story / characters / writing process. Spoilers have been whited out between these [[ Greetings! ]]. Highlight between the brackets to read them. 

 

1.   So far, this has been my only story in which my two main characters don’t have a names. The main character is Matt, and the guy you meet later on is Andrew (he goes by AJ) but I just couldn’t find a way to gracefully insert that information into the story without sounding forced.
