Sitting in Darkness is Back!


I have finally seen the error of my ways.

Despite knowing better, I have allowed Resistance (as Pressfield would term it) to kick my ass and stand with its jackboot on my neck. And, as Pressfield so accurately predicts, this turning away from my passion has resulted in a deep undercurrent of discontent.

A new job has me on a commuter train after years of working from home. Funny thing: with less ‘free time’ I’m actually getting some writing done again. It’s like characters in a story: when we limit their freedom of movement, they are forced to actually DO SOMETHING to counteract what is threatening them.

Suffice to say I was never so happy as when Sitting in Darkness was rolling merrily along, and I was churning out weird, little stories.

It’s time for me to go back down to that dark place where the stories live. Maybe other things are down there too..but I can’t control that.

I hope you’re well, Reader.

I hope you find this blog again.

Stories are coming.

    Glad to see you back, old friend. I may have missed it, but if not, have you ever fleshed out the woman and the bear theme, from years ago?

    • Bob Bois

      Hey Tony! Nice to hear from you. I still have that bear story kicking around but haven’t written more on it. That was “Irina of the Kodiaks” and I still want to develop that germ of an idea. Hope you’re doing well Tony!

    Hello darkness, my old friend. (Couldn’t resist) I was really glad to see your post. Looking forward to a horror fix….my own Resistance demon has been raging around the castle, breaking the good china and scaring the hounds. I could use some inspiration.

      Annie Howland, how the hell are you? It’s so nice to see your name on the comment panel again, along with Hobo Annie avatar. Sorry to hear you’re having your own Resistance issues but we’re going to beat it into submission(s) – there’s a writing pun in there somewhere…I hope you’re doing well and we both get a lot of writing done this year, this month, this week, today! Take care my friend.

    And the crowds go crazy! Cheers echo from the hills. Welcome back, Bob. Can’t wait to see what horrors your commute prompts you to create.

    • Bob Bois

      Suzanne! It’s so nice to see your name come up! You keep me motivated and accountable – and I so appreciate that. I hope my efforts are worth the echoing cheers from the hills. See you in the dark!
