This weekend, April 8 – 10, I’ll be attending, as an author guest, the Supermegafest Comic Con in Marlboro MA, with other members of the New England Horror Writers. Supermegafest is an annual, and local, comic/horror/sci-fi convention featuring celebrity guests (including Burt Reynolds, Kevin Sorbo, and many, many more, including a reunion of the cast of film The Warriors), dozens of comic artists/writers, and of course us lowly authors. We’ll be selling our books and speaking at panels. Some of us are also offering a limited number of attendees free fiction editing services. If you’d like to check it the whole shebang, you can find all the information at www.supermegafest.com! I’ll be there all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning.


Followup: it was a great weekend. met a lot of cool folks, and sold some books, so well worth it. Above is a picture of the gang on the final day. Rob Smales, me, Gordon Bean, John Dennehy, Scott T Goudsward and K. H. Vaughan. Special thanks to Stacey Longo Harris for snapping the picture!

Plague of Locusts - Second Draft Complete

Finally, finished shuffling events and people around for consistency, added new scenes and of course edited the boogers out of the very rough first draft. The second draft is complete. It's usually the longest of the redrafting exercises because almost everything gets revised. Going word by word through a manuscript used to be daunting, but I enjoy it because I expect it to be a lot of work. Now, the decision: jump right into third draft or go through G. Daniel Gunn's horror novel Lost in the Woods once? I think I'll stay with Locusts for a while. Have momentum and the characters still feel fresh in my head. The third run-through of any manuscript, for me, is always the most humbling, because every sentence and scene should be better than the first time through, so my expectations get skewed, because they rarely are. The lst draft was spent doing a lot of rewrites - rewrites which are, in many ways, first drafts themselves.

Still, the final product is cohesive and flows nicely, and to be honest it's a cool story. Now I just need to put my head down and edit, edit, edit. Never let them see you write, I always say (a derivation of Jimmy Durante's advice to a young Burt Reynolds: Never let them see you act, kid). You should revise, and revise, until the sentences and words take a back seat to the scenes you want them to paint in the reader's mind.

OK, waxing a bit poetic here. Time to get back to my writing.
