Craving Time for Craving Midnight

Announcements

Ok after a hellish week of moving essentially 2 houses in one weekend .. btw thanks to those that helped John, Jerold, Billy, Trevor .. you’ll be happy to know I am slowly getting back on track …

If you listened to my first podcast Episode 10 https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/crowdfinderss-podcast/id979311930?mt=2 …. and it interested you in the least well then you’ll be happy to know that I finally found time to sit down amongst the boxes and furniture strewn through out my new home and write a breakdown for all the main characters of Craving Midnight for my new creative partner, Dave Pluscauskus. I ended up with 3 and half pages of traits, actions, thoughts, arcs, and plot possibilities for Jack, His dad, Glenn, Samantha, Dubs, Elizabeth, Carla and Jorge (The Rodriguez twins) and it was nice kinda letting my mind unfurl. Actually after talking with Dave on the podcast, I found myself looking at each of them in a new and fresh way, which was exciting.

Also something Dave asked me for was everything thing I had involving the story beats/plot. This was cool too because after going through the characters, rounding them out and exploring a little bit of new territory for each of them, I was able to really see things a lot better than I ever had in the past. And so I just went, typing out the beats and movements, setting scenes until I finished Act 1 … sure it was a little over a page of sentence fragments and hyphens but it along with character stuff was more than i’d written for the story in over a decade and to top it off, what came to me really felt like something fun … which boys and girls .. is important.

Now understand this is a partnership, so everything i wrote is fluid. Dave is an excellent writer and I trust in his storytelling and we both only want to create a great tale that is fun, entertaining, and meaningful. So the next stage is Dave taking my ideas, character and plot alike, and building upon that. Before I go any further with plot ideas for Act 2 and 3 I want to know what he thinks about the framework so far and this will hopefully lead to the next installment of our Podcast.

I truly want to make this experience immersive so I’m formulating a way to share all behind the scenes content Dave and I amass whether it be a here on my site, a Craving Midnight site, or part of the podcast site. I really want to share with you guys all the back and forth that go into creating a book and building a successful partnership. Even if it means sharing controversial stuff. so with that said … Keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks for all the support guys

Take care and be creative

Eric

So … Big Things People … Big Things!!!

Announcements

So .. its been about 3 and a half weeks since I started my website and everyones support and feedback has really been amazing.

With that said, I am happy to announce that I  have teamed with a professional writer, David Pluscauskus and we are fast-tracking the development of a property I created long ago entitled, Craving Midnight

    So what, you might be saying. A  million, billion people are TRYING to create stuff all the time.

     Well my fine friends and enemies,  what is truly exciting about this announcement is the fact that we will be documenting our partnership and the creation of what is both of our’s first foray into comic publishing, “ON the AIR”.

     “On The Air”?

     Yep! You see David just happens to be the creator and host of Crowdfinders’s Podcasthttps://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/crowdfinderss-podcast/id979311930?mt=2, an exploration of the indie comics scene for all those who are or are wanting to become an indie comics creator or are just curious about the alternative side of industry. We both thought it would be a great platform for us to document the evolution of our book for all of you out there that dream of doing the same.

    I know what your thinking, “We don’t need 2 NOOBS telling us how to create a book.”

     I agree, and we aren’t. What we are doing is literally creating the book “Live” so to speak. From a basic idea and skeleton that has been gestating in my skull to the finished product. Let me reiterate this is not for us to tell you about what we are doing, but literally a way for us allow you to sit in on the actual creation process.

    When are we starting this? 

     We already did!!! …. After a week of emailing (yes we have only been talking for a week), sorting out which project to tackle and all things contractual, we recorded our first actual conversation last night …. for all of you to hear. 

     So check out the Crowdfinders’s Podcast https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/crowdfinderss-podcast/id979311930?mt=2, There are some great interviews already posted. Our first one together will be posted in the next few days. I’ll let you know when its up so keep your eyes peeled!

    I hope you join David and I on our creative journey.

Take Care
