The Stars Are Not Right: Change Blogfest


Seem's I didn't get into the Call of Lovecraft with this piece, oh well. This was a little different since it was the first thing I ever wrote that was blatantly for something a little out of the norm for me; horror and Lovecraft, it is based on a very strange dream I had...sorry honey.

Now it can double as a piece for the CHANGE Blogfest of Elizabeth Mueller. Its kinda long for a blogfest-2,700 words. Still lets see what you think. I'll understand if you unfollow me.



***UPDATE***
Going to rewrite this a little bit thanks to Brother Wilum Pugmire esq.

Oh, that was horrifying. Your descriptions were so intense and I swear I felt a little bit like being sick at the same time that he did!

I'm on the run at the moment so I'll have to check back and read this later. Great start to it, though.

David, thank you for participating! This story was good! I loved the voice, the setting and your characterization. I found it creepy! It would make a good scary movie!

It's nice to see you again! I hope life's treating you well. I'll email you. Hopefully I'll hear back from you this time. ;)

have a great weekend!

Hi Elizabeth, it was supposed to be creepy-so I guess that worked.

Did we miss an e-mail exchange? Sorry, it wasn't on purpose.

Wow, I loved this. My kinda' story. I didn't even notice the length. This is totally Lovecraft-worthy. You should get this published. Too bad Twilight Zone Magazine isn't published anymore. I really miss that mag. It introduced me to H.P. when I was a kid.

David J. West said...

Thank you very much Angela, that means a lot. I never read Twilight Zone magazine but I sure loved the show.

Christine H said...

Wow, that was intense! Fantastic writing. I'm not into horror but this was really well done.

Also, please stop by and check out my 100 Followers Contest. I'm announcing a new blogfest tomorrow, too!

Hi, David. I thought that was great. Your prose is authentic and dense, your characters vital. You're a real storyteller.

David J. West said...

Thank you Christine, life is chaotic I might miss the blogfest.

I appreciate that a lot Franklin-thank you.
