Go for a jog and listen to a podcast on writing to inspire you to keep going, refreshing your batteries. Also don't be afraid to rewrite. It's your story. You can do whatever you want.

Hugh doesn't describe their backstory, and I thought I would. I can't really go into that backstory without spoiling Scavenger, except maybe to say he is the custodian at the local bar and brothel, and is on the verge of either becoming a villain or going back to his wife and forgiving her for letting their infant die.(less)

I first came across Kris Saknussemm’s work in The Bizarro Starter Kit (Purple).His contribution was a novella called Sparklewheel, which I described in my review as a “psycho-sexual fever dream.” It’s no surprise, then, that Saknussemm bills his second novel, Private Midnight, as “a pschoerotic noir fairytale.” Sparklewheel was a sort of picaresque that moved […]

“My first clue time travel could be possible was in the barber's chair the day before my girlfriend's funeral.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Perfect, that's our plan then. But you'll have to give up being a priest first. I wouldn't want to just sit around whispering and sipping hot chocolate.”
Ted Dekker, The Priest's Graveyard

“Men and women who had worn suits for decades traded punches powerful enough to crush elephant skulls, dodged and deflected attacks too fast for the eye to follow, and died suddenly, often before the crowd registered the killing blow.
Victors and dead men were separated by a blink of the eye.”
Zachary Jernigan, No Return

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Each killing steals a bit of humanity until a murderer is nothing more than an animal. A hunger replaces the spirit. A want for what was lost, but as with innocence, the soul can never be replaced. Joy, love, and peace flee such a vessel and in their stead blooms a desire for blood and death.”
Michael J. Sullivan, The Crown Tower

“By the time the Somnambulist had set her creaking bones to rest on their assigned landing pad, Holden had lost all patience with human stupidity.

So, of course, it came out to meet him.”
James S.A. Corey
