New revelations and new plans to keep me writing

I hate waiting...
I know I can be impatient, but when I was told that THE COURIER would publish my article, I expected it to actually do it. The part that's kind of annoying me is that it was actually relevant to everything going on about the election, yet they didn't print it... Maybe they will sometime, but I'm starting to have my doubts about the local media.

Characters have been speaking to me, putting their words into my head, pressuring me to tell their stories. It's interesting, but in order to do it, I need to work out if the voice they are speaking in is too much like other writers I admire or not before investing too much time in a novel. That doesn't mean that I'll not write their stories, but I just have to work out a good way to tell them...
Which kind of leads me to a revelation I had last night... create a new blog written from the perspective of one of my new characters and publicise the hell out of it on facebook until people read it... So, i have a choice of characters... An exorcist named Candy who was orphaned as a teen after a demon possessed and killed both of her parents. Or Death, well, actually her name's M'Alice and she hates the scythe and robe stereotypes. She's been around for a few hundred years so she's got a lot of opinions and ideas about everything.
