The question for week 35 of the MFRW 52 Week Blogging
Challenge is Plots: What period in history and why?
My reply is whenever, wherever, and whatever I think fits
because that is how I roll.
My universe has multiple timelines that converge and
interact. Like my mind, it is intricate, imperfect, and somewhat difficult to
explain, but I will try to break things down.
I was born one day after Valentine’s day in 1965 and have
been writing and creating for as long as I can remember. I learned how to read
when I was four years old, and by the time I was six, I was reading Edgar Allan
Poe. I’ve also loved the old horror comics from that tender age. I love gothic
horror as well as mid-twentieth-century horror.
I am honestly not particularly keen on most modern horror. As
a rule, I don’t enjoy splatter or exploitation, although I absolutely loved
Return of the Living Dead.
I can’t recall my first exposure to science fiction, but I’ve
always loved learning about the Universe. My father had a lot of old comics and
books and what are now known as graphic novels. I imagine my earliest exposure to
sci-fi involved comics such as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
I like paranormal romance if it’s done right. Twilight is most
assuredly not my cup of tea. Give me the original Dracula or Fright Night.
That, my friends, is the way it’s done.
The ingredients in my writing involve a heaping helping of
Lovecraftian steampunk. Incorporate a long-dead world that got screwed over by
its inept king’s attempt to master forces that don’t take well to being ordered
about. Jump even further back in time to a cosmos held in the sway of
unforgiving forces and introduce a pair of nearly omnipotent star-crossed
lovers to learn the motivations of a pissed-off witch sired by the powerful
trickster god spawned by the embodiment of primordial chaos.
Move ahead in time to the early twenty-first century and
meet an unfortunate musician whose cognitive abilities are starting to fail. This
self-deprecating chap is at the eye of the raging wibbly wobbly timey wimey temporal
There are dead worlds and damned souls and more timelines
than you can shake a stick at, and as for why, the only answer I have is because
that’s the way I see it, and if I didn’t see it, I don’t even know if I’d still

Speaking for myself I thoroughly enjoy the eclectic nature of your writings and your posts. Time is an elastic trickster at the best of times and cannot be nailed down.ReplyDelete
Ah yes, "timey-wimey" stuff. We own all of the incarnations of the Doctor. Some, like Troughton, we have just a few of his episodes. But ALL of Tom Baker, and all of the more modern ones, after it returned following its hiatus. All of my kids came home from college or out-of-state, and we went to the 50th anniversary showing live of that episode, with one of my sons wearing the Tom Baker scarf I'd made for my husband years ago, and one wearing a fez. Your writing sounds intriguing.ReplyDelete

It is good to unravel things a little at a time and make discoveries useful for later use. Great way of thinking!
