While thinking about a story of mine that has been 15 years in gestating, I got off the subject exploring instead my extreme interest in writing about sex behind closed doors. What people get up to fascinates me, especially where the brain is involved. This Labyrinth Project Creators Journal will make you think about how your romance is going, hahaha. Read the blog that is always brief, always stimulating and join over 2000 lovers around the world.

More voodoo stories! Voodoo entry 2 of 15: “Resurrection Cemetery” by Richard Alan Scott

“Kill your darlings.” That’s how the witty and urbane writer Dorothy Parker described the feeling behind having to slice, dice and lose chunks of one’s own work, chunks the writer may love intensely and feel make the work “ME.” We all go through it, but it doesn’t make it easier, as I explore in the Labyrinth Creators Journal over at the Immortal Artist. Bear with me as you double your pleasure, double your fun, with this voyage inside my head at twice the usual length.

PAPA CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Watching Ken Burns’ definitive documentary on arguably America’s greatest 20th Century writer, someone who also writes can not help but think of the similarities and wide gaps between himself and the man. Ernest Hemingway developed a larger than life persona while privately he was quite torn, unhappy and confused sexually. The Labyrinth Creators Journal goes into some of my random thoughts and gets personal for both of us. Read the short, thoughtful blog that has 1600 dedicated visitors.

THE NAME GAME

Do any other writers enjoy coming up with names for people, places and things as much as I do? I love doing cultural research, mining my family tree, and giving real people and places better names than they have. Join in reading the Labyrinth Creators Journal that has thousands asking, “How does Richard Alan Scott do it?” Also “How do you think he comes up with those great names for stuff?”

A (SUSANNA) BLOOD MOON

Getting a practicing witch to help me write a story set in 1692 Massachusetts was my way of creating witchcraft that would be authentic. In the years I consulted with her I learned a great deal about doing Wiccan spells on my own, and some that I performed endure to this day. Please read the short Labyrinth Creators Journal that always makes you think and is always enjoyable. Join nearly two thousand others from around the world.

BEWARE OF THE CARETAKER

When an errant group of teens invade and lay waste to a city cemetery, it’s up to the grounds’ tough Caretaker to even the score. In a story that has yet to find a home, The Night of the Vandals includes some nasty goings-on as a baby’s corpse is desecrated and we are introduced to the lovely exploding casket syndrome. Read about my brush with Hollywood in this latest Labyrinth Creators Journal at The Immortal Artist. This brief and always entertaining journal is closing in on 2000 readers. Even the Dead Need a Champion.

SLEEPING WITH LOVECRAFT

As a novice to the subject of H. P. Lovecraft, about sixteen years ago I began to research and put together a picture of my state’s (Rhode Island) most haunted horror resident. Certainly his life was unique compared to most people who’ve walked this planet, and his mind was even more warped and otherworldly than even other writers. But I couldn’t have expected the very deep and personal behavioral trait that linked the two of us utterly. It explains a lot. Please read the brief and engaging blog that makes you think about “stuff,” my Labyrinth Creators Journal over at The Immortal Artist, from New Orleans, LA.

BRING ON THE PAIN

Crystal Lake Publishing, one of the world’s top independents, has a superior ongoing series of horror short stories called STILL WATER BAY. The series tells of a coastal Georgia resort town with waters that have health benefits but also hide a dark secret; a Hellmouth which allows ungodly monstrosities to seep through into our world. The town’s good guy team, known as The Guild, fight for the regular citizens and their safety from these eldritch terrors, while the avaricious Robert Jackson works only to supplicate the Demons and offer sacrifices to them at his resort, in order to maintain his financial hold on the area. Guest authors are sometime invited to pitch an idea for an episode, joining creators Joe Mynhardt and Naching T. Kassa. My idea was pitched, written and accepted!

So without further ado, read my episode entitled “The Pain Merchant,” offered free this one time only at Crystal Lake here:
