Siva's book is finished. Well, the first draft is. I still don't even have a title for it yet. And, of course, my creative voice insisted that I go back into the story and touch a few things at the end after I'd crossed that finish line and was making notes on the last two … Continue reading The book is over the finish line
I spent the afternoon, or the later part of it, writing. I feel like I'm about to finish Siva's book and I probably have a couple thousand words or so left to it. It excites me that I'm so close to being done with this book, though I'm torn about what I'm going to go … Continue reading Whole squash? Will it cook?
I've been through a dilemma with Siva's story. Aside from the fact that I burst into tears at the end of chapter 22 today while I was writing it (yes, the words I had written caught me by stark surprise), I feel as if I should've been done with it already. Now granted, this last … Continue reading Counting pages
Worked on Patreon posts this morning. Then I finished getting the third book in the trilogy threaded back together and the outline updated. It's good to have that done. I also got Sword and Shield all spell-checked today. Discovered two things off the bat: 1) I need to work on the start of the book … Continue reading Plans
It's probably the only day this week that I can actually put into the win column. I finished drafting the third book in the trilogy. I am currently taking out that scene I mentioned last night. It had no bearing on the story by the time I wrote to the end. I feel like it … Continue reading Today is progress
The concentration on my painting this week has put my words a bit behind. Once again, I find myself up against getting my weekly goal done. If I focus, I can get caught up, but I've got a lot to do. I spent some time reading another book on painting this morning, then I got … Continue reading I’m not sure it’s progress
It's Wednesday, and I think that the obsession I've had with my painting recently has made my brain focus the business on it today. I added even more paintings to my website and a couple more magnets. For half a moment, I thought I had all of my 4"x6" paintings on my store. Then I … Continue reading A laughing Muse on the shoulder
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
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
That is the question I deal with today. In trying to work on the trilogy yesterday, I started feeling like something was going wrong, like maybe scenes were out of order. I feel like I've reordered them once, even though the truth is that scenes I was able to merge in one of the scenes … Continue reading To tear apart or not to tear apart?
