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 finished a novella length story last night. Now I’m trying to figure out what the title should be. Usually somewhere in writing the story the title comes to me. Not this time. Maybe I’m trying too hard because I know what I want to have in the title but I can’t make it work. … Continue reading Finished a story
That nifty little progress bar which I added a couple weeks ago has been updated with new items. Photo by Artem Beliaikin on Pexels.com It always seems like it is when I wake up in the morning that I have really good ideas. I do think a section of my brain just works on things … Continue reading Progress bar updates
One question I am frequently asked is: How much longer until such-and-such book is out? That's always a hard question to answer. However, in my roaming this week I discovered progress bars on another author's website in regards to where the books were at. My first question was, "How did he do that?" immediately after … Continue reading How much longer?
At first, it was a relief not to do the weekly progress blogs. I could put the words to my story instead. I was kind of glad that I had released myself from that self-imposed obligation. Then, over the last couple of weeks, I've been missing them. Not doing them weekly, but the chat I … Continue reading Progress – March 2019
Let's chat, shall we? Let me start by saying that I'm trying an experiment and moving the free fiction to Friday. I want to see if it has better results there. (catch last week's now) Not going to lie. This is all about the exposure. Me running the free fiction does no good if only … Continue reading What happened?
I keep having imaginary conversations with myself. I really hate that because it's such a time waster, which is not something I can afford right now. But, my mind keeps regurgitating things. Dumb primitive animal brain! Dumb things that I am forced to think about, things I want to say, things I don't know that … Continue reading Progress – March 4, 2019
Egads! Are we at the end of February already? I had a good trip going and coming from Utah last week. Had some blowing snow across the road, but for the most part it was clear and dry. Wizarding Dayz was a very family-friendly show. I did a lot of networking, met some great people, … Continue reading Progress – February 25, 2019
Let me here a big "Woo-hoo!" WOO-HOO! Oh, yeah! That's what I'm talking about. *grin* I know, you want to know why you have to give a big congratulatory whoop. Here it is: I finished my read-though edits of Tangled Magic last week and got it to my reader. She, in turn, sent me back my … Continue reading Progress – February 18, 2019
I've been binge watching Stargate Universe, again. It's strange. I've even had a few people point it out to me; I write fantasy fiction, but I love watching sci-fi. I wonder why that is. Usually I watch television while I'm doing something else. Like right now I've got Stargate Universe on and I'm working on … Continue reading Progress – February 11, 2019
