How to salvage your rainy weekend in Portland
Thanks, Chuck, for everything. You've lifted all of our spirits countless times.
I'll resume writing jokes no one reads in due course ;)
AND THEY HAVE FREE HOTDOGS ALL DAY ON MONDAY!!
Sounds like fun. It's mothers day here today.
Wow I'm sad to miss this one. Didn't your Survivor narrator steal flowers off of the crypt at the Mausoleum to put at his boss' garden and spray painted them regularly to keep the color? That one stuck with me because I wanted to do that at the houses I garden for.
Getting to know the places that inspired you to write some of you books, is one of the reasons why I plunge myself into every new post here.
If I was there, I'd love to take a trip. But what if I get lost in the maze of death and goth sex??
Sorry for asking kind of a morbid question. But, Chuck, would you want to be put in that mausoleum?
Huh. Looks like people are dying to get in there.
I live a few hundred feet from 2 different cemeteries. One is old and filled with a crumbling mausoleum that smells like death and the other a federal cemetery overrun with people this weekend. I go to both often to write and it’s a strange juxtaposition. I always feel more at home at the older one since not a lot of people gather there and it’s filled with wild bunnies.
Reading the Oregon live article, maybe my first time ever that I saw a Mausoleum worth visiting. The ones we have here give these a bad name. They tore down one last week, the carrers were scamming people for money for years.
I live spitting distance from there! Weekend saved!
Have a writing question if you’re up for it... Have you ever removed characters from a story? Any reason you came to that conclusion?
Can I get a free ticket to the Castle in the backyard? Lol
This looks like a fun place to explore. I wonder if we have something similar here?
Hey, Chuck. Slightly off-topic, but I was curious how you deal with people breathing down your neck to add "Trigger Warnings" to your work? I ran into that with my last piece and some people are obnoxiously persistent. I confess, I finally caved and added one. But I wasn't happy about it, not at all. It's like saying, "Hey, here's my story—but don't you dare read it!" Do you have any canned lines to keep these spoiled brats off your ass? Can't people make a decision based off the initial summary of the MS? It's not like I lied in the synopsis.
Goth Sex and Suicides. Sounds like a fantastic weekend.
