IN THE HELL ZONE

Inferno by Dante has such a cool hierarchy of demons and lost souls, grouped by their major sins and the punishment metered out for said offenses. This Labyrinth Project Creators Journal is about a story I’ve worked on forever, involving a guy’s commute home, a global disaster, and the manifestation of these tiers of Hell here on Earth. I also talk about writing “in the zone” and other twists of my tale “Peeling Down the Layers.”

THE NAME GAME

D

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?”

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.

EMBRACE THE DARK SIDE

Writing does have its dark side in the form of utter and hopeless rejection, faced from the moment you begin to submit your stories or query agents with your novels. I have a lot of thoughts on this state of defeat in my Halloween/ Day of the Dead Labyrinth Creators Journal over at The Immortal Artist in storm-ravaged New Orleans. Read the brief blog people look forward to more than their cornflakes.

I HATED THE ENDING

Talking about the ending of a film, book or story, we know that everyone has an opinion. Was it stupid? Was it great? Did you understand it? In my latest Labyrinth Creators Journal I continue to obsess about it in my writing, and we hear from British writing legend Ramsey Campbell. 1100 people have discovered the fun and interesting blog that makes you think.
