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 couldn't bare to look at that awful painting I had started. I just couldn't do it. Yet, it was what was before me on the easel, so I turned on Beauty and the Beast and sat down to paint. Let's be honest: I was absolutely hating this piece even before I sketched in the … Continue reading Revising the painting
Woke up this morning to at least 2 more inches of snow. Above is a closeup of Merlin in the snow this morning. Kevin made paths through the snow for the dogs earlier, but they had nearly vanished. Here's that picture: You can see Kreeli's footprints just beyond Merlin. She's lost in the snow somewhere. … Continue reading More snow, more painting
Well, I've gotten nothing done today, at least not creatively. Not going to complain though because there were other tasks that needed done and they now are. Plus, I spent quite a bit of time trying to find out kitten's name. I feel like I'm so close. I had to run out and find some … Continue reading Kitten and Glove Quest Updates
I finished the 8th Loki adventure today, and then I cried. I should have finished the story yesterday. The end was in sight. I knew where I was going and what needed to be done, but I needed to go shopping. After five hours of driving around town to get all my shopping in as … Continue reading Today of all days
Let me gaze into my crystal ball and see if a new Loki short novel is coming soon. Oh, look! There it is. Part of the reason it took me so long to work on Sacred Knight #5 and #6 is because I was also off doing side quests in other stories. I wrote a … Continue reading Is a new Loki Adventure in the future?
Last week I wrote about three space paintings I was currently working on. I've still been whittling away at them, but I think I finally finished one of them. Maybe. At the moment of this writing, I'm waiting to see how dark the acrylics get after it dries and cures completely. Let's have a quick … Continue reading Finishing a space painting
As I predicted last week, this week was a challenge with Adrian's play going on. But, it all worked out anyway. I went to see his play, The Puppet Tree, twice. Here's a picture on him with one of the puppets he played. Coordinating schedules and getting home to let the dogs outside too up a … Continue reading Progress – December 10, 2018
I'm starting this post for the second time. I went off in one direction and realized that it was a whole separate post. You'll get it later in the week. You'll know it when you see it because it's about playing around. I think that was exactly what I needed to do when I started … Continue reading Landscape painting – WIP?
I'm currently painting the cover for Manifest the Magic, book 2 in the Sacred Knight series. It's due out on December 20th. I admit I was starting to get a little worried about this cover because I had no ideas for it. I was starting to wonder if this cover would challenge me. It took … Continue reading Manifest the Magic book cover
