Fear, focus, and the future. Here, C.M. Humphries writes about whatever.
As far as all things fiction were concerned, last month was a little sluggish.
However, there is some hope I will be able to get back to making additional changes to Excluded by the end of the month. While part of the revision process has included editing, the plan is to dive deeper into the story of the Douglas Residence and make some slight adjustments to the original plot. The latter goal isn't so much to change the story so much as it is to give it additional layers of horror and suspense. And, of course, I wouldn't feel right about re-releasing a book if that meant people were reading the some ole story with the same ole ending. There's gotta be some new stuff, right?
Hopefully afterward, I will then get around to finalizing some drafts for Ashland's Asylum. Sadly, both books will need to sit a bit longer in the oven before you're able to get your hands on them.
As a final note regarding fiction, I've had a real itch to scratch out a couple of new short stories. There's a few ideas floating around in my head, distracting me from my other writings, so it might just be time to flesh them out. I'm not entirely sure what this means, but more than likely, there'll be a couple new horror stories on the way. Maybe. We'll see. But in the meantime, be sure to check out The Library for all of my works.
I'm still working on lists and articles for WhatCulture, which can be found on my author's page. I recently wrote about WWE's developmental territory NXT, if you're up for a little sports entertainment.
Additionally, I've come across a couple more opportunities as a content writer, which I'll be sure to discuss soon, should the come to fruition. One of them involves writing a bit of comedy, so we'll see how well that goes for me.
Also... I'm starting to fall in love with my trusty Nikon camera again. Who knows what that might bring? At minimum, maybe some lovely new images for the site?
