A Few Things More

So Write-On-Demand Day came and went without a whisper, which I expected, so I’m fine with it. The important thing is that I made the effort.

Tweets fell short yesterday, I know. I was visiting family and haunted houses, and I let my emotional well-being take precedence like a loser. I’m sorry, Brad, JEEZ.

With an ass-numbing six hour drive behind me, today’s make-up quota should come along smoothly, like an inattentive boyfriend who realizes you’re about to dump him. Expect lots of chocolate and smooth talk, and maybe a hand on your butt when I make my clumsy attempt to seduce you.

I haven’t forgotten about the original story. It’ll go up as soon as I fix a glaring plot hole I discovered at the eleventh hour. I’ll be sure to link to the prequel tale when I post it.

Meanwhile, I’m busily trying to revise my zombie novel (a different tale than the property serialized here) before I let discouragement take me down like a Spanish bull. I keep sending it out to agents, but those crickets I hear chirping in response sound a lot like they’re saying “GOD YOU SUCK.”

Remember to follow @SeanGanus or #thenightshift to see just how much I suck!

Peace and chicken grease.

Write-on-Demand Day 2012

So let’s see how this goes, I guess. If nothing else, it’ll be a welcome distraction from staring in mute frustration at my monitor while I try to revise my novel.

So here’s how this is gonna go down: I operate on Central Time, so that means I get to piss off everybody, but whatever. From 12:00 a.m., 10/13/12 to 12:00 a.m., 10/14/12, Central Time, I’ll take any suggestions you can throw at me for a story. Suggestions will only be taken from replies to this post.

Only one suggestion per person will be accepted, so get in all the details you want when you send in your request. Each suggestion will be turned into a horror story to be posted by Halloween.

Feel free to reblog whichever story was written for you, though remember to duly credit me for my work. Also, all stories are my sole intellectual property, and can be taken down at any time.

Enough big boy talk. Get your minds in the gutter or in the clouds, and send in those suggestions!
