Update: The Chamber and My Writing

I have been busy establishing The Chamber over the past month or more and my writing has therefore suffered. The beautiful spring weather here in Arkansas seems to have brought in a severe bout of laziness as well. On a personal note, as of April 3, I have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine. … Continue reading Update: The Chamber and My Writing

Update: The Chamber on YouTube

Here’s an update on what’s happening at The Chamber.

The Chamber Magazine

Over the last few days, I have been experimenting with developing a YouTube presence for The Chamber. At this point, I am not much of a filmmaker. I don’t have the time, experience, or equipment to develop a professional YouTube video. Ergo, I have been experimenting with public domain, royalty-free videos I can find at Pexels.com or Pixabay.com using free video editing software at Kizoa (using the basic free membership demands that I have the Kizoa logo on my works) or the very simple stuff available using the YouTube Studio editor. Above is about the best film I have developed so far. I have a longer one of a minute and fifteen seconds in the works. As I get the hang of making these, they are becoming easier to make.

I have not yet developed an ultimate goal for these videos other than to use as basic advertising on YouTube…

“Little Girl Blue”, my poem has been published by eclectic THE CHAMBER MAGAZINE.

An Awadh Boy's Panorama : tracing words on these filigreed, discerning fingertips.

Hush! she is a spirit of fine fettle clad in whole nine yards of mystique, haunted by a gossamer fabric of heresy. Maligned in her charm The halo of an apparition,  she unfurls her midnight legend.                                       […]

“The Scent” Flash Fiction by Phil Slattery

This is a story I have had published several times since it was first written around 2001. It is also the first story I ever had published. It is poignant and reflective has always been one of my favorites. A strange thing happens as Quinn lies down to sleep after a night on the town. … Continue reading “The Scent” Flash Fiction by Phil Slattery

Special Feature: “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”

https://www.facebook.com/100027203064168/videos/545765156340248/ On Sunday, March 7, a friend of mine, Tim Stamps, whom I have known since college way back in the dark ages of the 70's, sent me this link to a truly dark video. I thought it would make an excellent special feature for The Chamber. Here's what he says about it: "Hey Phil, check … Continue reading Special Feature: “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”

Update for March 4, 2021: Lycanthrope

Here is a quick update on my progress on my horror novel, Lycanthrope. Currently, I have over 46,000 words on Lycanthrope and I am gradually building toward a climax, probably the first of two or three along with at least two plot twists that should spice things up. The main setting of Lycanthrope is in … Continue reading Update for March 4, 2021: Lycanthrope

My Kind of Place to Write

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npVellnR6D8 Before the Coronavirus struck, I used to love to go to coffee shops or diners and write with a decent pen into a spiral notebook. I have a few dozens of these on my library shelves, where I would come up with an idea while out running errands and then go buy a notebook … Continue reading My Kind of Place to Write

Creepy Cabin in the Woods

As you may know, I live in house in the remote backwoods of Arkansas on what was once a civil war battlefield. A few thousand probably died here and my house is probably very near where the Union commanding officer stood while directing the fight, which was only a hundred yards or so away. Being … Continue reading Creepy Cabin in the Woods

Update: Lycanthrope

I just now reached 40, 246 words on Lycanthrope. According to my scan of publishers on Duotrope, 40,000 words is the minimal word count that almost all publishers will consider a novel. My best estimate currently is that I will need another 20,000 words to complete Lycanthrope. I have been working on this since the … Continue reading Update: Lycanthrope
