DAY TWO OF ‘THE ADVENTURES OF ABIGAIL STORM’

The neighbours hate me. I’ve been blasting rock ‘n roll all day and have been playing it loud. I’m putting together a list of around 200 songs that are kind of the musical personality of the book and will play on repeat for the next couple of months as I write. 

Here’s a few of the highlights:

1) Cherry Pie – Warrant
2) I Love Rock ‘n Roll – Joan Jett
3) Ice, Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice
4) 99 Luft Balloons – Nena
5) Boys in Town – The Divinyls
6) If You Want Blood – AC/DC
7) Paradise City – Gunners
8) Common People – Pulp
9) O.P.P. – Naughty by Nature
10) Blister in the Sun – Femmes

(Due to some plot issues that I won’t go into, all music is from 1980 to 1999 – but all of it is awesome).

DAY ONE OF ‘THE ADVENTURES OF ABIGAIL STORM’

After 12 months of writing movies and other such things, it’s time to write another novel!

This one is a fun sci-fi romp called ‘The Adventures of Abigail Storm.’ It’s a cross between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Escape from New York with a dash of Terminator 2 tossed in.

I want a 80,000 word draft by December, which means 1 month to outline, 1 month to write and 1 month to rewrite… and then probably 2 months to sleep and drink just to get over it.

To keep me honest with that deadline, I’m keen to share the process. So yell at me, prank call and hurl sarcasm and abuse if you think I’m slacking off.
