Since I was a teenager, I have been telling stories for the fun of it through film, video, audio drama, and more. Check out many of those projects here, or read on for comments on other stories or items that catch my interest.

I Used That in a Story One Day!

February 27, 2015 Leave a comment

A while ago, I had a minor but amusing incident on a road near my house.  I detailed this event in a previous post, part of my series entitled I’m Gonna Use That in a Story Someday… (seems like I haven’t written one of those in a while).

But just in the interest of being a completist, I wanted to mention here that I eventually did in fact use that idea in a story!

The story is called The Incident at Edmuss Rise, and it’s an interactive murder mystery party game.  Read more…

Losing [Friday Fictioneers]

February 7, 2015 2 comments

Only six months this time since my last effort, I return once again to Friday Fictioneers in an effort to provoke myself to more storytelling on this blog.  The idea is to respond to a photo prompt with a story of 100 words. I’m not sure how this one has turned out, but nonetheless it makes me sad. Read more…

Doctor Who: The Nightmare Fair [Big Finish – Lost Stories]

January 30, 2015 Leave a comment

Man, Big Finish has an enormous output.  I love Doctor Who and I enjoy seeing every episode of the show that I can, but when I look at the scope of what Big Finish has created since it started making Doctor Who audio dramas back in 1999, and it’s just clear that there is no way I’ll ever have time to catch up on all of it (unless, you know, I end up in that well-stocked Antarctic bunker I’ve often thought about).  In addition to their “Main Range” of dramas, which is hitting it’s 200th release around now, there are various and sundry other lines of Doctor Who-related material – stuff featuring Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords, Alternate-universe stories, literary companion Bernice Summerfield, Sarah Jane Smith, and on and on.  Add to the time the money issue (most of the dramas cost $20 or more) and it seems pretty clear that there’s a lot of material I’m never going to listen to.

And then along comes Humble Bundle, with their unbelievably cool deal of offering tons of stuff for whatever you want to pay for it (although you need to hit certain marks if you’re going to unlock certain parts of each package) and all of a sudden I have a pile of Doctor Who audios that I never thought I’d get around to buying.  All of that to lead up to The Nightmare Fair, a drama from the “Lost Stories” line.

Glad to See the Back of You [Short Fiction]

January 21, 2015 4 comments

Claude looked into the mirror, but all he could see was the back of his own head.  His reflection would not meet his gaze.  Claude waited, stared harder, but the reflection didn’t move.  How long had this been going on?  How long had his own reflection rejected him? Read more…
