Music – Ladies of Ragnarok Tour

Last night I attended the Ladies of Ragnarok tour as they passed through my town. The musical and comedic tour features The Doubleclicks, Molly Lewis, Joseph Scrimshaw and Bill Corbett. I did not know much about the tour going into the evening – having only recently learned about them from The Last Arcade.

My Writing – Sea Trolls and Weird Water Witches

Sea Trolls and Weird Water Witches is the magical story of a what may happen along oceans and lakes, ponds and waterways all across the world.

Length: 1 page

Genre: Children / Fantasy

Creation/Publication: 2011

————————————————————————————

The story was part of my 2011 NaNoWriMo collection. The original intention was to write an original children’s story every day (between 1,700-2,000 words) for the month of November. I made it through only a few stories before I realized how challenging it is to write kid/children’s stories. The word count, length, choice – all became a huge challenge for me.

Enjoy one of the few pieces I was able to finish during NaNoWriMo!

The story can be read here: Sea Trolls and Weird Water Witches

A few items to note when reading these stories:

  • Please enjoy them and feel free to let me know your thoughts. A writer always appreciates feedback when attempting to grow their craft.
  • Many of them remain unedited since their original creation date and contain misspellings, improper grammar and made up words. These are in here for flavor and as a time stamp to reflect my age when they were created.
  • Over time, I hope to include “Directors Commentary” in all of my stories. Hopefully this adds some flavor and context for the creative process and my thinking as these stories were created.
