Morris, Illinois -- As I am writing this it is in the midnight hour. I was looking over a journal entry I had penned the night before titled "Bad Dreams Come True" and discovered how I went back to my Lovecraft influence to pen this. After talking with Dee Hundertmark
, on the phone had a discussion about trying to get published, I thought I would bring out the introduction of the Lovecraft influence with a metal station playing in the background.
Between posting on livejournal and chatting with people on AOL instant messager about the new post and sometimes getting the word out about a new release is not easy. With livejournal -- letting people know that one has a new release and inviting them over to read it is like bending someones arm behind their back. With the notes of writing on livejournal I would go back over time and take from those and write a new piece. Some people would take and put all their energy into their livejournal. But to sometimes see an actual writer come out of there, it is hard to find because the short entries there would fool some people.
Sometimes an online journal will burn out a writer who had been writing for a long time. Though the reason I created a journal on livejournal was cliffnotes, as H.P. Lovecraft did when he was alive -- he kept a travel journal -- I did the same before going to Canada. Well out of a half hour of my time frame -- chatting with readers and people who find my website or journal.
When writing the journal entries about my nightmares -- it is release of one thing or another because it is a reflection of how bad dreams come true at times.
