Today is that day! It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns has been around for the last 7 years. Wow! It's amazing how time flies.
Normally, I color code questions and answers in orange and green because I usually change the background scenery for Halloween. It goes without saying that 2020 has been an extremely shitty year for most of us.
The incessant Doomsday reports about the Coronavirus by the media and social media fucked up everything for all of us. The only silver lining to this year for me personally is that sometime next year Black Bed Sheets Books will be publishing my novella, Just Desserts: Capricorn's Ultimate Revenge.
In celebration of It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 7th anniversary, questions about rare Horror Anime, Carl Jung's Typologist Test, etc. will be answered in today's Q&A blog. All questions are in bold red italics and my answers are simply bolded. So, let's begin!
1) DanniDarkness: Are there any rare Horror Anime that you would recommend?
I don't know your exact definition of Horror Anime, but if you happen to enjoy Horror Comedy, I highly recommend watching Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge was renamed "The Wallflower" in English.
2) A. P. Fuchs: Do you write regardless of how you feel, whether you're tired or slightly sick or just plain unmotivated?
Answer: It really all depends on the situation. If I am extremely nauseated from something and have been barfing up my lungs for rounds, then no. If lethargic, I will take a nap then finish writing.
Meanwhile, writing angry poetry was my personal catharsis during my adolescence.
Growing up, I always took a lot of shit from people ranging from my classmates to certain teachers intentionally making negative examples out of me.
Generally speaking, that ALWAYS contributed to bullying and has especially led to more school shootings if not teen suicides within the last nearly 3 decades. I don't condone school shootings and teenagers committing suicide, but I understand why both happen.
Sometimes teachers ARE to blame for the bullying, school shootings, and suicides with their need to make negative examples out of their students.
It has been 15 years, since I last wrote any poetry. Whenever I did, it was usually angry poetry. Yeah, in some ways, I've been that weird, stereotypical, angry Goth Chick for 2-3 decades.
An estranged guy friend from college loved mocking me and the Goth Sub-culture. A longtime mutual friend of ours introduced him to some BDSM and fetish communities. Gotta love those bandwagoners always trying to "fit in." Most average people do NOT know, that BDSM originated from the Goth Sub-culture.
BDSM is NOTHING like 50 Shades of B.S. Those novels are piss poor representations of BDSM.
3) Donald: Based on Carl Jung standards, what is your personality type?
Answer: For those who didn't already know, Carl Jung is usually discussed in both Psychology and Sociology classes. It has been many years, since the time of taking those classes.
If you are interested, you can learn more about Carl Jung's theory of personality types, right here.
4) DJ Scott Wilcox: It's so hard to get published nowadays. What is the status of your short story collection?
Answer: Please re-read the beginning of this Q&A blog. Also, ~2 weeks ago, I published a blog explaining more about my writing status.
"Maliciousness," "The Bill Collector," and "Psycho Vs. Psycho" have all been converted into 1 novella.
"Across The Street," "The Horrors Of Womanhood," and "All Of Chastity's Men" still have yet to be published. The last 3 stories are much darker and grislier than my novella.
"Across The Street" is a Horror Flash Fiction piece and the shortest story I have ever written.
Because that story is different from the others, I don't know HOW it will be published. Maybe it will have to be published separately from the others.
Also, I still have yet to finish writing "All Of Chastity's Men." This particular story has been put on hiatus more times than any other story I have ever written. You may be wondering, "WHY?"
I think the hiatus is somewhat because I am writing "All Of Chastity's Men" more for my own personal catharsis.
Normally, I wrote poems for my catharsis. Writing THIS story for my own catharsis is a much bigger challenge.
Well, it appears that I answered everyone's questions for today's Q&A blog. It would've been fantastic, if more readers and subscribers had questions to ask. Then again, less is more.
Thank you for asking your questions and reading today's Q&A blog in celebration of It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 7th anniversary! I look forward to your feedback!
