The best way to battle this fatigue is to take the steps to get my energy up. Working out helps. Playing piano helps. Writing stream-of-conscious pieces, unrelated to my work-in-progress, can clear the cobwebs. Doesn't matter what remedy you use, as long as you're writing again.(less)

Lucas’s Recent Updates

Lucas Mangum is 46% done with The Lake: I'm taking a break from this one. It seems unfocused and lacks the brisk pacing of Laymon's other works.

Dark Mountain by Richard Laymon

This book was a lot of fun. Some great descriptions of camping. A murderous mountain man and his witch mother. Zombies. Rape, a common trope in Laymon novels, is present here, but is thankfully much tamer than usual. I really enjoyed this read.

“Something primal was awake within her, a violent will to live as old as the universe itself.”
Lucas Mangum, Dark of Night - Flesh and Fire

“If this is dying, Chloe thought, I'd like to do it again sometime.”
Lucas Mangum, Dark of Night - Flesh and Fire

“I used to send my characters into a fire that necessarily consumed them, but I have learned, a little, how to send them through the fire to a new place. The characters who do not change — most notably Nakota in Cipher, Bibi in Skin, and Lena in Kink — are motivated by an essential selfishness or self-centeredness, an unwillingness to relinquish control to the process, a refusal to become.”
