The 6th Sacred Knight book draws one more step closer today. I finished the manuscript several months ago (I'm not going to say how many because I was a bit embarrassed when I looked up the date -- whoa, really?), and I have been nagged by it ever since. I knew there was a scene … Continue reading Sword & Shield – Sacred Knight #6
I made it. I got my words in and met the weekly goal for last week. It was late when I finished (after midnight, but since I hadn't gone to bed yet, it still counted as Sunday). I took Merlin outside after 1:00 a.m. and the sky was so bright with the full moon that … Continue reading Release the hellhounds!
I finished with book 1 of 3 today. Well, finished it for the second time. It did "lose" those 15,000 words, but it's in quotes because I think I'll actually be able to use 7-8,000 of them in the 2nd book. I started to see where the book was going and how the start of … Continue reading Finished
I did get my homework finished and turned in last night. But then I was up for an extra hour, probably coming down off the adrenaline rush of doing all that. I had planned on sleeping in to account for staying up late. Nope. I felt my watch buzz with a notification for me to … Continue reading Walking the baby steps
So far, I'm glad to report that the gloves worked well this morning. I managed to get 7 chapters of the first book outlined for what I've already written and cross-referenced with all the world-building information in a compendium for this series. When I worked on Sacred Knight, because the technology changed so much over … Continue reading Outlining and adventuring
Well, the soreness from weeding my garden yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I woke up stiff and sore, but I'd taken valerian last night to relax the muscles. As soon as I got up and got moving it wasn't too bad. As if weeding yesterday wasn't enough, the weather cooperated enough for … Continue reading Raking today
It feels a little strange to be sitting between projects right now. It feels like I'm mentally tagging along for the ride and waiting to see where I go. I've spent the last few days since finishing the manuscript for Palladium focused on rounding out Sword and Shield (Sacred Knight book 6). When I was … Continue reading Tagging along for the ride
Cirvel's story, Palladium, is done. This finishes all the stories in the Sacred Knight/Onesong save the world epic adventure tale. Okay, so there is one more story I want to write which I know is in this world and it's Elliot's tale. But, aside from a cameo appearance from Cirvel, it will have nothing to … Continue reading Palladium is done
The last day to get things accomplished. Some things didn't get done, but everything that needed done was finished. I hope my garden makes it through. I still hope to get a couple more weeks out of it even though I can feel the weather cooling down. I'm not ready for winter. I'd be happy … Continue reading Finish line!
It's been another long day of trying to get things done. I'm tired. I'd say it was a good tired, but my legs and feet hurt. Yeah, its a good tired. I keep telling myself I'm almost done for the moment. Then I can relax and enjoy myself. My funny today is that I forgot … Continue reading Release day
