Back For The Attack

It’s been a long and expensive 8 days in Myrtle beach, S.C.  I was blessed with an ocean front view from the back of my room, and a bird’s eye of the “strip” in the front.  What a life to be able to live there full time.  Unfortunately, who could afford such debauchery?  

I met many wonderful and highly interesting people while there.  I wrote over fifteen full character profiles using a list of questions on anyone that I found to be of interest.  You’d be amazed at the people who will tell their story to a stranger…especially if the stranger is a female horror writer.

I started working on a new piece while I was there, and I’m trying to incorporate as many of the people met as I possibly can.  It’s an exciting time for me as a writer.  I’m between classes so I have time to fully flesh out this inner adventure into some form of outward prose.

Of Myrtle, I will say that the food was amazing.  I probably packed on a solid 10 to fifteen pounds in my eight day muchfest.  I sat with a pen in one hand, a fork in the other, and a frosty, fruity cocktail beside.  It was fabulous!

Went to the local horror show and spent the better part of three hours roaming and taking pictures with the staff in full regalia.  I may post some of those here after cleaning them up in Photoshop.

Weather was gorgeous.  Ocean was lively.  Crowd was intense.  I rode a Sling Shot that drove me 300 feet into the air.  I met so many friends that I have their phone numbers and Facebook addies in a confused jumble in the bottom of a beach bag that smells like candy, incense, and tanning oil.  Lovely combination, I might add.

For now, I am exhausted.  More on my East Coast Adventure as I feel more rested.  Image
