Greetings and Salutations loyal readers of the blog,
As reported last week the herd of zombies my friend Mischievous Raven and I were raising to supply various industries with Free Range Organic Zombies (trademarked) escaped. I mentioned that some companies were suing us because of breach of contract. The entertainment industry is especially blood thirsty it seems when you don’t deliver your product on time. To add insult to loss of income there are rumors of all the Kings men and all the Kings horses heading our way because some people have lost loved ones to a zombie feeding frenzy. Now, while I am responsible for the afore mentioned shamblers escaping, no one can convince me that they can discern one of my Free Range Organic Zombies (trademarked) from the more common feral dead heads that populate the realm.
Just the same Mischievous and I are planning a retreat to Troll Mountain We’ll wait until the public clammer for our heads on a pike to settle down. You laugh–I tell you they were combing the swamp with torches and pitch forks last night. It was a scene right out the famous documentary, Young Frankinstien. Not so funny when it’s your head they have in mind for the end of the pike. Plus as you may know dwarves are not fond of heights, and that pike is very long. I’m afraid my head would get dizzy.
Of course the Trolls are no treat to deal with either. My hope is that we will be able to out riddle them until such time that we can make our way home. Mischievous is particularlly adept at riddles and his wise cracking nature should keep us safe for a time anyway. I’m happy to report that The Three Misfiteers have been appeased by my most recent efforts to get their story published. That at least is a little good news.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the extraordinary Lynn Rush. She was gracious enough to vist our steamy swamp yesterday and answer all Wicked’s questions and autograph books for fans. My muse was impressed with her speedy transportation although he prefers bulk over speed. His fully armored and armed HUM-V are proof of that. His love of all things mechanical had him drooling over the speed she could squeeze out of two wheels. He tried to hide it from me, but rumor has it he made Mischievous Raven get Lynn’s new release Violet Dawn autographed for him. Sorry Lynn, but my muse has a tough guy reputation to maintain.
Next week we’ll pick up our talk about characters and what makes them click for you the reader. I will be asking for you to contribute one of your favorite fictional characters so start thinking about now. As usual I’ll leave you with a quotation.
This one come from the movie Silence Of The Lambs in honor of yesterdays guest Lynn Rush.
