Hmm, I’m a bit late. Or maybe that’s a month. Regardless, it is awesome to see you!
While I’ll try to keep to my schedule, I am a writer who also blogs. Meaning, when I’m wrapped in story and things are moving along, I loose track of most other things. And that is the way it should be – for me.
Never worry though, when the fugue passes my mind always turns back to my dear friends, of which, as you are reading this, are one.
And so, Designing from Bones.
Allow me to introduce a new thought and direction for DfB. Yes, it is partly about the issue that rippled the blogsphere. Only partly. It is primarily about bringing DfB in line with my direction as a writer.
Alternate Fiction. A re-imagining. Not of direct information but through a blending of it.
Some are calling it New Pulp. I like the name, but I like the content even more. At the beating heart of New Pulp is alternate fiction. It is not in protest of the genres, but rather, seeing how they can be linked together and blended in new and powerful ways to convey story.
That is essentially what I have been doing with Designing from Bones from the beginning. Exploring how events, history and reality can be molded into fiction.
And that is what we will continue to do in the coming weeks. Only in a more streamlined format. Getting to the heart of the matter and opening the imagination, so that we, can re-imagine. And in so doing, empower our fiction, and the dreams of our readers.
It’s gonna be a fun ride. I hope you’ll join me. (smile)
