So, I take it the general consensus is the idea for a killer dummy didn’t really wow anyone?
Ehh…I’m still working on How the West Was Zombed. I’ve been pretty bogged down though lately but hopefully have new chapter soon.
I’m not going to fall into that trap of starting new novel halfway through another novel anymore. That’s like leaving your wife for a supermodel. Sure, she turns heads and looks great at parties, but once you skim the surface she’s kind of dumb and won’t make you a sandwich.
Not that your wife did either but she at least cared enough to suggest you go to McDonalds or something if you looked hungry.
I think the Killer Dummy novel will quite possibly be my next novel though. I know what I posted was kind of primitive but after thinking about it, I think I will switch to first person and it will basically read as a confession/tell-all book from “Kit” himself, after having been caught, explaining to a shocked public how this beloved comedian/actor was in secret an evil serial killer who talked to his dummy.
I’m debating just how evil “Mr. Kaboodle” will be. Part of me thinks he will egg Kit on. Then another idea is that he tries to talk Kit out of his evil ways but, being a loyal pal, serves as consigliere, advising Kit how to cover up his crimes once he’s done them.
On a larger scale, it will give me the chance to lampoon Hollywood, how movies are made, and the whole idea of celebrity worship.
But fear not. Zombed is still underway. One thing I’ve had to learn is to not rush things. None of this is going to happen overnight. I want quality but I also want to not kill myself either so if it takes longer, then it takes longer.
If that means just one book a year then so be it I guess.
Also, it is weird I’m gravitating towards horror with my ideas lately. It is hard for me as I don’t really like the idea of anyone dying.
Well ok, no one does, but when a writer bumps off a character it is like that writer is actually doing the bumping off. I don’t want to bump off my fictional characters.
