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 solved my issue with the second book. I do admit that I kind of rushed the end a bit after that, but I wanted to make sure it was going to work. I'll loop back through to sink another layer into it before writing the last chapter, which should happen tomorrow. So, I wasn't … Continue reading Second book: solved
I'm hoping this week to finish up with the second book in my super secret trilogy. Okay, so it's not super secret, but yes, I am still keeping it under wraps for the moment. I figure I have 2-3 more chapters to write. Then I'm onto book 3. Even though I've had a couple of … Continue reading Nearing the completion of book 2
Cirvel's story, Palladium, is done. This finishes all the stories in the Sacred Knight/Onesong save the world epic adventure tale. Okay, so there is one more story I want to write which I know is in this world and it's Elliot's tale. But, aside from a cameo appearance from Cirvel, it will have nothing to … Continue reading Palladium is done
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
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?
Trust the process - an affirmation for telling stories even when the path doesn't make sense.
