I had a moment to paint this evening. I thought I’d show a couple pictures of paintings I’m working on. 4”x4” acrylic on wrapped canvas I’m going to have to look at this one under my studio lights to see if I’m really finished with this one or if I still have work to do, … Continue reading Blue Forest
I did get to painting today. I did several pieces. This is one of them. © Dawn Blair I’m not sure if this one is done or not. I like it as it is, but I also want to expand on this. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get to do some more painting and I can work … Continue reading More than dreaming

I'm nearly finished with writing the story for the anthology call. I'll be able to send it out soon. Of course, I have no idea if it'll be accepted or not, but if it's not, I might try some mystery magazines. If they don't want it either, then I'll publish it myself and I'll be … Continue reading Getting words done early
I finished the story for this week's Fenrir's Tales today. It's a bit longer than normal. I'll post it later so for my patrons on Patreon later. This one is not going to Vella, so don't look for it there. I have other plans for this story. I also spent some time today getting organized … Continue reading The difference in 5 years
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
