So…writers are thinking. All the time. How do we turn that off? Here’s one way to do it on Episode 8: Total Brain Erasure! You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/68NnQlQahm0
Keep in mind that just about any location you love that gets you to relax and focus on other activities besides writing will work. While I’ll say the vacation was incredibly effective in turning off my brain–as most Disney vacations are for me–I will say that cutting down the several hours of video I had while trying to tell an effective story in under five minutes was more than just a little challenging! Have fun!
As you’re reading this I’m on my way to Walt Disney World in Florida for a winter warm-up (if you’ve read SKELETONS IN THE SWIMMIN’ HOLE: TALES FROM HAUNTED DISNEY WORLD, then you probably know the World is my fave place to be!). And there’s news on that front: Read the rest of this entry
Kindle Mojo’s interview with me, in which I discuss my picks for who I’d cast to play Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole’s main characters and other fun stuff, is up! You can check it out here:

Leonid Korogodski, author of the book Pink Noise: A Posthuman Tale which Cory Doctorow (Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom) calls “a story that sucks you in and spits you out again some 120 pages later”, has given Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales from Haunted Disney World a great review!

So, where are you headed in 2011? Right now, I’m sure some of you are saying nowhere because of all of these winter storms. But recently, Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World got to travel to Disney World thanks to the Boneker Family of New Jersey!
This is the coolest series of pix I’ve ever seen! The Bonekers took the book and visiting the various attractions featured in its short stories—but spent the most time at The Swiss Family Treehouse, where “Charlotte’s Family Tree” is set. Since that’s hands-down one of my favorite attractions of all time, it was quite awesome to see my book become part of its unique settings (come on, who DIDN’T want to live in a tree house as a kid? I sooo wanted to sleep on one of those hammocks in the tippy-top room!)
Here we go! The Bonekers give Skeletons a tour…
