A poem, a story, and a word

Sorry I haven’t posted the second part of the Daleks piece yet. My situation has grown increasingly unpleasant and worrisome in the last week and I honestly haven’t been feeling up to making Daleks — as is suggested by the latest installment of Crayon Poetry Corner (which you might already have seen on Wesoteric, but the graphic is new). Also, remember that National Novel Writing Month project of mine from 2004? Well, given that I may be homeless within a month or two (which would kind of preclude my ability to update SC), I’ve decided to post the novel here in 3500-word segments (give or take) so that interested folks will have the opportunity to read it. I’m also planning to post more of my fiction in the coming weeks, hence the new folder.

You know, I was planning to say a lot more in this post — much of which admittedly wouldn’t be terribly glad or optimistic — but instead I’d just like to take another moment to thank everyone for reading. I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the near future, but I’ve enjoyed running Scary-Crayon these past two and a half years. Thanks for spending them (or however long you’ve been reading!) with me. 🙂

  • I have to say that I’m looking forward to reading more of that novel. It was fantasitc, so far, the rambling was brilliant and the concept of an obvious vampire not believing in vampires is hilarious.

    Anyway, the idea of you ending up on the street really has me worried. I really do wish there was something I could do but my parents and I barely keep afloat ourselves. Let me know if you think of anything that I can do to help. In the meantime, I suggest digging deep for crap to sell on eBay.

    Thanks for the well-wishes, Tetsu. I’m (obviously!) hoping things won’t come to me being homeless, but with the way things are going I figure it’s best to start preparing for the worst. Like you noted, that entails selling quite a bit of my stuff, though admittedly I don’t expect to make much money from it — the vast majority of my things are opened and in played-with condition, so I’d really be selling or donating them in order to reduce the amount of things I have to drag with me wherever I end up. I’m hoping some of the carded figures will net me a bit of helpful cash, though. I should probably pick up a Toyfare or something to help with my pricing.

    I guess I could try having some contests to get rid of some of this stuff too — among other things, I’ve got several unopened Shell Cells that I think readers might enjoy.

    As far as the novel goes, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the first part and are looking forward to reading more… ’cause there are certainly more heaping helpings of insanity to come! I’m looking at Saturday for Part 2. 🙂

    So, you’re a goth, then?

    Or are you emo?

    You know, I never met a black goth guy before…

  • I’ve kinda wondered that myself. Wes has mentioned before about hanging out in goth clubs and being attracted to goth-girls.

    So, Wes, you down with the darkside?

    Of course, I also think goth girls are sexy, and I’m not goth at all (more of an otaku/ wacko-artist with bits of hippy and beatnik mixed in), so anything’s possible.

    And, if Wes is a goth I don’t think him being “black” would make it any more unusual. Race is fairly meaningless. For example, alot of people doubt the existance of Black Rednecks, until they visit Louisiana…

    You know what, until Wes posts again and clears this up we should bet on which clique he belongs to. I bet on him being mainly a Beatnik who dabbles in goth.

    i love you so much
    and you just cannot see,
    that deep inside youre killing me.
    I was so stupid to let you know it,
    maybe i shouldve tried harder to show it,
    so now here i am, bearing my soul,
    telling you ,that only you can make me whole,
    standing up now , on top of the chair,
    you dont really seem to care,
    tying the rope,crying alot
    instead of helping, you tighten the knot,
    thinking about all the things weve been through,
    and i cant help but think…how could you?

    (its not too great, ive written better…)

    Just thanking you for your advice on how to pad a novel. Great ideas,
    fun stuff, good examples from that weird Christmas story.

    PS: Does ScaryCrayon still persist? Hope so. . . .
