Update: This is an early draft, folks; I’ll be editing it notably to get in more body language. I just felt it was important that I finish the whole thing in one sit-down so I had the right feel of manic energy and intense fear.
…and it is very, very, very, very, very dark.
If you recall, I was having a paranoia attack that I had been restraining my work for fear of social and legal rejection. When I sat down to plot out #8, I had some choices to make. And I decided, ‘Let’s just DO THIS.’
I recently saw the movie “Requiem for a Dream.” Unsettling. VERY unsettling. Very well done. Very hyper and with intense editing. I took that, I took the nature of time, and I just… did it.
Here’s a very temporary link to Nothing #8. Not linked to the front page yet. I don’t have Dreamweaver installed on my new computer yet so I had to slap it together with Notepad and Netscape. You better believe I plan to edit this a little and pretty it up before calling it done.
Of all the episodes, this one is PROBABLY the most experimental. I hope it works for y’all. I wrote the whole thing in three hours of raw, unplanned plaster the ideas right to paper style writing. I’m very satisifed with the results, even if they spook me a bit.
