Sunday Tweet: Six Sentence Sunday-Starfall


I saw this on Aheïla blog and decided to give it a go. Of course, she is much better at it than me, but still I’ll give it a try. Don’t forget to click on the link and check her place out. You won’t regret it. ——- For my six sentences I’ll use my unfinished […]

NaNo 2011: Piling on the Dialogue


Tweet of the Day: The #1 Factor to Consider When Choosing a PoV Character ——– Back pain has slowed down my NaNoing but I’m still at it. I have discovered an interesting trend, my characters can’t shut the hell up! Every scene is talk, talk, talk and talk some more. I mean like dialogue, I […]

NaNo 2011: Ruins of Empire-Timeline


Tweet of the Day: The Iceman Plot —— You may have noticed the dearth of post around here not to mention that this is not the regularly scheduled update to Necessary Heroes. You know the answer already: NaNo Instead I give you some background/world building info on the current project to wet your appetites. I […]

Weekend Roundup: October 30-November 5 + Blog Chain


Tweet of the Day: The 99 Miles of October ——– Mighty short week this one on account of my Interweb provider and their shoddy service.  No internet, no post. I guess I should just write them all in a day or so and them program wordpress to publish them on a daily basis, but the […]

NaNoWriMo 2011: Ruins of Empire


Tweet of the Day: Some People Never Learn – Part Three ——- Ye Gods are craaazy! Yes, I’m doing it again. NaNoWriMo that is. So what is NaNoWriMo? Simple, sign up to the website, and starting at Midnight November 1st, 2011 you start writing. Non-stop. Until the last day of the month. If you accumulated […]

Rewiring


  Well, it’s that time of year: to look back, to ahead, for resolutions and revaluations. 2010 sucked for me. Family illness, death in the family, recurring health problems. Little traction on the writing front. So, time to make some hard decisions. Neither Here nor There… is getting shelved until I find the proper market […]

In the bag!


  My third book that is! Okay, so it’s only the barest of first drafts. So what. Three novels and counting. Of course now I have to turn back my attention to the other two, who always linger in one production/post-production stage or another. That’s the life of a writer, after all.Writer,revise, repeat…. ——— More […]

No NaNo This Year


And I won’t be as cool as all my fellow scribes who are counting the days to NaNo 2010. A few reasons why: RoE (Part 1) is in full bloom. I’m writing, organizing and generally trying to give birth to this bad boy. I think I’m half way through but won’t know until later on. […]

Blind Alleys and Dead Ends


Being a write-by-the-seat-of-your-pants (breath, OK) type of write is great, but it does have one tiny little problem. You tend to miss a few exit signs along the way. You’re pounding the keyboard (or pressing pen to paper) and then something happens. A “wait a minute, this doesn’t make sense” kind of thing. You don’t […]

Choppy Waters


So far RoE is going well, especially after the headaches earlier in the year. But it would not be worthy of a blog post if I had nothing to complain about. So here it is. My writing is too choppy. Too many short scenes, too many jumps between POV characters. The story moves forward but […]
