PostSubject: A is for Annoying, S is for STOP it   Tue Nov 25, 2008 3:38 am

(23 November 2007)

Not long ago, it came to my attention that i have some rather irritating trends in my work. Namely, the names. Titles, i mean. My first "slew" of books all begin with "A." Achilles Forjan, Armchair Detective, As You Were, Another Justice. . . I'm not sure if it's some deep-seated Alphabetical Addiction, or merely a subconscious belief that my writing is still at the beginning. . .perhaps i am working my way through the alphabet, like some popular mystery writers (A is for Annoying).

Now that would be sufficient to vex me, but i also noticed the the covers i designed for Achilles Forjan and Armchair Detective, both have vehicles on them. And As You Were has the image of a two lane highway....My best friend says she thinks it is my subconscious need to "go somewhere." Looks like i need a vehicle for a trip away from A's. (And then i named another book "the ARM"--but have since changed it to Quintessence). In fairness, i do have other books that don't begin with "A." Plethora, The Curse of Madagascar, It's About Time, Brainmatter, Yin & Yang....but the A-list is the one that's closest to print or in print right now, so I'm ultra-aware of it. I considered changing the titles to some, but just didn't feel right about it. So I'm just going to let that go, and be mindful henceforth. A is now for AWARENESS.

ADDENDUM: 25Nov08

Since writing the above post, i have noticed another trend like this, possibly as some subconscious effort to get away from A's--but the problem has become, that now i have too many S's...

Here are the Titles of some other works I've either completed or am working on:

Somewhere Else
Supernatural Hypocrisy
Soaking the Pillow
Strictly Academic

"S" is for STOP it!
nah I have no idea what insidious psychological chicanery this might be, but i find it intriguing, nonetheless.
