This week on Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Podcast, host Armand Rosamilia chats with Mike Lombardo Mike is an indie writer/director & FX artist who runs Reel Splatter Productions.

A vey quick post tonight. About 250 written on one of my NaNoWriMo pieces but have felt quite exhausted tonight so I’ve not tried to do a lot.
Seeing as I’m knackered I’m going to read a chapter or two then bed.
This week on Bizzong! Mr. Frank is joined by zombie writer turned bizarro lunatic, Duncan Bradshaw. Duncan talks about his transmutation from zombies to vacuums. Duncan is a dedicated artist and his latest book, Mr. Sucky is a prime example of his eye for detail in prose. This is a book that simply must be…

Today I’ve written 2216 words for a total of 47540 words for the month, well for NaNo anyway. Overall I’ve written 49495 words for the month. My home region of Kent also passed the six million word mark as well! 😀
So overall it’s been a damn fine day. I think I’ll pass the 50k on NaNo on Wednesday at what will not only be my final Write-In of this years NaNo, but for the year as well. We take a break in December, and the other writing group I go to meet on the last Monday of the month and that’s New Years Eve. I have been to another writing group that meets each week as well, but thats at a shopping centre (the same one we have our monthly meets for my NaNo group, and where my story, The Snow, in the Under The Weather anthology is set) It is something I will miss but I have a lot of writing to do next month so I won’t dwell on it.
Right, that’s it for now. I’ve pushed this one to the wire tonight.
If you have a dream, never stop reaching for it!
Aside from a couple of places where it felt a little slow I liked this book a lot. The atmosphere created sticks true throughout and CL Raven give you a good feel for the Asylum. I think if they hadn’t then it would loose some of its impact because the Asylum feels like another character.
The characters are in part a little annoying but also engaged in trying to discover the secrets of the history of this Asylum.
I did find the protagonist, Phineus (yeah I know I’ve spelt that wrong!) particularly annoying, but in the way that makes me want to turn the pages and get to the bottom of the mystery.
I did suspect one of the big reveals, but not the other one. That one was bigger and I didn’t even have a clue, but it slots everything into place once you’ve realised.
This is one I’ll read again in the future so I can connect all the clues now I know the secrets of Raven Retreat.
At the write-in today I wrote 1571 for a total of 45324 words. I was kinda hoping for a 2k day but I’m still ahead and quite happy with the pace I’ve had this month, even if the last couple of days I’ve lost a little momentum.
Because I want to keep this momentum going into December and onwards I’m trying to figure out what I want to have as a daily target next month. I don’t want to go heavy and go for another fifty thousand words, but I’ve got 1200 words a day in mind which will give me an end of month total in the mid thirty thousand words range. With PE3, The Vampire Era and the stories I’ve got for this years NaNo I think I’ll have more than enough to work with for the next year at least so this is doable.
Another write-in tomorrow. Im thinking I’ll hit the 50k at the final write-in of the month for me on Wednesday.
