Temmy tried to get me up early this morning. I should have listened to her. But no, I knew what was waiting for me and I didn't really want to get to it. As a result, it was a strange day today. I partially blame Mercedes Lackey too. I started reading her book, Joust, last … Continue reading Bookkeeping and covers
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!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm about halfway through the third book of the trilogy. I had the title for a fourth book pop into my head, so I'm wondering if there are actually more. The story is actually rounding out that there could be more. But I realized a couple of days … Continue reading Back to outlining
I just came across that quote -- "Doubt is removed by action." I think it works well today. I've been trying to decide on a few things and going back and forth as to if it were a good idea or not. Today, I decided to jump in and give one of them a shot. … Continue reading Doubt is removed by action
I'm not finished with the second book yet. I started my day out working on my newsletter which is going out tomorrow and I had several goodies to set up for that. It took me several hours to get that done. However, when I was meditating the other day, it popped into my head how … Continue reading And well…
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
As the title says, I spent time today working on a cover mockup for the 8th Loki novella. I feel like I'm narrowing in on what I want, but I haven't gotten that a-ha moment I like. My son steered me back to going back toward the way the covers were done for the first … Continue reading Working on the cover for 1-800-Lok8
I recently signed up for a lifetime subscription on a course package offered by Dean Wesley Smith on Teachable. Sometimes I just need reminders on my writing and I love the way Dean phrases things. He's blunt and honest. Don't expect warm fuzzies. I like that. It's an eye-to-eye level approach and I know it … Continue reading A Wise Friend
I feel like I've been working on a lot of writing projects during late summer and early fall, but for a while it felt like nothing was actually getting done. I felt a bit stuck. But lately, I've been like a mad woman possessed and things are finally starting to break loose. I finished and … Continue reading Breaking loose
