Blood Talk: Creating New Worlds

We needn't paint obtuse colors of expression on our character's faces all the time (I was a fan of this when I first started writing), their dialogue and small mannerisms can help paint a picture that can, with every little nuance, create a greater, more believable world.

REVIEW: The Black Seas of Infinity by Dan Henk

Black Seas of Infinity

As usual, I'm posting my Goodreads review first:

The Black Seas of InfinityThe Black Seas of Infinity by Dan Henk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very well-put together read. In hindsight, I feel like I watched an awesome, well thought-out movie. The pacing was excellent, the character was interesting, and you really feel drawn into his world.

The character's thoughts were realistic, and what I love about Henk's work is that while set in the real world, (relatively), there are hints of mysticism and downright out-thereness that just works.

It took me so long to read because I'm terrible with reading things lately, and busy, but it was not the fault of the book in any way, shape, or form.

This was a riveting, sci-fi jaunt, and it makes me want to upload my consciousness into an alien body suit if only to see what the fuck would happen. (And if it's anything like what happened, here, count me the fuck in.)

He captured all the nuances of each book beautifully, and his attention to detail to character is astounding. I'm extremely happy with them.

Just so no one's confused, however, I will say that these books follow a group of characters, as such there are scene dividers and threads of everyone's story as the series progresses.

When You Should Be Writing But

I feel we owe it to ourselves, as writers, or people who want to be writers or people who are aspiring to be published, to start putting our ideas down seriously. Sure, we're screaming into a void and it's just as likely no one is listening or even screaming back, but we do it anyway. Maybe because we need to, maybe because it's all we know. Or we're drunk. Either way, it's something we do.

Isn't that such great news?! I'm glad everyone's who's read it is enjoying it thus far. It really makes me breath a sigh of relief, you know? To know that someone's work is being read and enjoyed is validating as hell.

I know we're not to write for 'everyone else' but it DOES help me, at least, with knowing that what I thought and felt others would enjoy (because I, myself enjoyed writing it and reading it) holds true. I hold onto my intuition and don't let it fade that way. I like to think of myself as someone who knows marketing or at least has a natural feel for it.

I guess we'll see once the first book is out February 26th, won't we?!
