The Extreme Writing Adventures Of The Undead Duo

Today’s Brew:  WATER!  I’ve never been so dehydrated in my life.

Sitting in the gas line at the Montvale rest stop on the Garden State Parkway. It look us a little under two hours to get to the pump.

Julie and I are back from The Backspace Writers Conference.  We thought we would tell you about our trip in query form to show off our new skills.

When Kristen and Julie attempt to escape the Post-Sandy zombie apocalypse wasteland of New Jersey, they never imagined that Kristen would be tempted to offer sixteen year old boys sexual favors for their full gas cans. * They traveled to city that never sleeps for The Backspace Writers Conference.  Julie charmed agents  with Running Home and Kristen figured out what worked with Immortal Dilemma. They will do almost anything to get home to make the revisions needed in order for their books to kick maximum ass. They even faced the possibility of spending the entire weekend on the side of the highway, armed only with rice crispy treats, crumpled fishnets, and a stolen roll toilet paper in the backseat of the Corolla.  Hitting every diner they came across in the tri-state area for coffee and tuna melts, the girls conjure absurd stories to entertain themselves along the journey, much like this one.

THE EXTREME WRITING ADVENTURES OF THE UNDEAD DUO is a dystopian comedy, complete at 2.5 days.  There may be more episodes.  We’ll never stop being ridiculous yet driven towards success.  It’s how we roll.

*While there were sixteen year old boys with full gas cans, no sexual favors were offered or received. Everything else really happened.


The Reason NYC is the City That Never Sleeps

TODAY’S BREW: Hazelnut (the Kristen Killer)

In researching vampire sightings, I came across a story from May 1, 2006 on Dan Spencer’s blog, California Yankee. I dug in a bit, and found this too interesting not to share. You deserve to know.

Hillcrest High School in New York City is being sued by one victim of attack from a “vampiress” in what has become a series of odd attacks. Michelle Melendez told The Post that the attacker drew blood on her neck, face, jaw and throat while she was waiting by school for a bus ride home. The girl “started slashing my face with something sharp, and she bit me.” Melendez thought the attacker was going for her jugular.

Michelle was dragged to the ground, struggling, and the vampiress would not let her bite up. Blood was everywhere, reportedly.

“‘She just bites like crazy–she eats your flesh. For some reason, she just likes to bite.”

Michelle Melendez was able to escape, but not without multiple cuts, bites, bruises and a broken finger. The victim still suffers nightmares that torment her sleep.

Plastic surgery was required to restore Melendez’s features.

Wow. This may taint my desire to visit 5th Avenue this Christmas.
