Almost without exception, I’ve heard nurses say (when asked, who are you?), “I am a nurse.”
Well, I never said that.
I just finished a huge weekend event celebrating the launch of fellow Doce Blant author, Ren Cummins’ newest release, Steel & Sky: Tales of the Dead Man. To say that we had a blast is an understatement! The entire weekend ROCKED!
Caribbean pirates and Sci-fi blended well together…
The shift that happens for a writer, usually from one genre to another, is likely because one of the silent characters has decided to remain silent no longer. He (or she) screams their thoughts until their words permeat mine. It is then that I go to stillness, listen, and begin typing what I hear them say.
Today, the shift happened. I was drawn to the image of an abandoned building – the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virgina to be exact.
