So just to fill the emptiness, I’m going to make a quick post with updates and future goals.
First: I, Shanna Wynne, is one of a lucky (or cursed, some say) few to be a reader for Dark Recesses Press magazine. What that boils down to is that I get to sort through lots of bad stories to find the good ones. And they’re not all bad, most just don’t suit the mag. To reflect this opportunity, I will be adding a new page to the site detailing DRP, with more links to the site and other goodies.
Second: My sister, the person I have bragged about for two months now, has returned from the United States Marine Corp Officer Candidate School. Unfortunately, this is about a month and a half early. She decided to forego this chance to become a Marine when she realized a week in that she’s a thinker, not a fighter. While this was unforeseen and unexpected, we’re all still immensely proud of her. And she’s doing well. She has learned a lot about herself and gained a ton of confidence she didn’t have before hand. This makes her easier to admire, but by far harder to put up with. (You know I love you, little sis.) Oh, and it’s been a week and her hands are still embedded with dirt. That’s how you break a soldier off.
In the Future
While I have an unbelievable amount of fun working on the site, I must alas turn over the design to another. I have artistic vision–just not an ounce of color sense to put it together. (Trust me, I’d wear plaid and stripes if I didn’t have a husband to censor me before I leave the house.) So, hopefully soon, there will be some interesting changes to the site and I look forward to bragging about them even more.
Also, for those who know and those who don’t, every Saturday night I get together with my mom and sister to watch horror movies. If we start early enough, we watch three or four; some good, some awful, some not worth mentioning. I realized the other day that I’ve been wasting a great opportunity. Here I was saving my thoughts on films for the newsletter (that never gets sent out nowadays) . . . denying all my great readers a chance for a taste of new and old horror films, both A and B list, from my height perspective. I have done all my readers a disservice and I am remedying it immediately. Every Sunday will be a new blog, entitled “Saturday Night Horror Fest,” where I divulge my most secret thoughts about the films and any other juicy tidbits I might share.
And speaking of the newsletter, it’s time to get real. I’m going to pick a day of the month and bam! It’ll be in your inbox, ready to read. I’ll let you know what day. If you have any ideas, feel free to drop a line.
That’ll be it for now. Enjoy your weekend and I hope everyone had a great Fourth.
