Quoted from LuisAnthony
do you happen to know when the next OWC will be?

Traditionally it's always been Jan, April, July and October, but it's all subject to Don's schedule, wether he has time or not. I imagine it takes up a lot of his time.

i'm working on a short now that i'm hoping i'll be able to post soon.
i wrote another script called Wash Away The Blood which takes place in an apartment complex. i'm always coming back to my scripts and tweaking them. and during one of these "tweak sessions" i started to ask myself "Who else lives in these apartments?" and the ideas for more stories just started flooding in. this new short is going to be one of those stories. ill probably just turn it into a series of stories about the different poor saps that live in this apartment complex and the gnarly shit that happens to them. and since all these characters occupy the same universe it'll also give me a chance to revisit some of them through other characters stories and expand on them a bit more.

Winter has come.

I have a fascination of what love is, and how it can be a feeling of evil, or make someone do evil things. I've written both a short story and a short script trying to get this feeling across but I haven't been successful in doing so.

Besides that, I like to have two people stuck in a situation, whatever that may be. I'll think of the physical location, and maybe something that has happened/will happen that relates to the location, then "wing it" the rest of the way.

Newspapers is a good one. Got so many ideas from there, whether it be scientific, social, religious. A rich source.
