Flying with Villemard

Why be inspired by one Villemard picture when you can be inspired by two?

I intended to spend this afternoon working on my story for the 'Ghosts in the Machine' anthology - which is beginning to look like one of those cursed never-going-to-get-around-to-it projects - when I stumbled across another anthology (courtesy of a posting on the Graveside Tales forum) with a theme that I just had to have a crack at.

From the Asylum is looking for stories for their 'Things Aren't What They Seem' anthology. The closing date was originally this Tuesday but has now been pushed forward to May 15th. I am currently 205 (WOW!) words into my entry titled 'Flying Dutchmen!'

Oh, and I finished the synopsis for 'The Poisoned Apple' earlier. I now have no excuse and will have to send it out to agents. GULP!

Good luck with The Poisoned Apple! I've had my own manuscript in the hands of two "Higher -Ups" (one an agency, the other a small press) for 2 months now. It feels as if I've sent my child off to camp or something...

Wow Barry, that's amazing.

I have the opinion that The Poisoned Apple will become an international hit, read by people everywhere.

Of course, I also chose the wrong person in the Super Bowl, watch Revolutionary War movies expecting that the British will win the next go round, and argue with people about whether there are actually monkeys in the Terry Gilliam film, Twelve Monkeys.

But I am certain about this!

Great pic. something very imagination inspiring about it.

Good luck with your projects. I've got an anthology I need to get a story done for too but I was procrastinating tonight.

Tjanks for visiting my blog.

JC - Ah, as misguided a view of the world as I have. :) I love Twelve Monkeys - ingenious.

Charles - thanks for popping on over.

Good luck with the agent search!

Let’s remember, Matt Hilton wasn’t signed until his eighth novel. :)
