Sneaky little critical voice nearly got me today. I was working along on Siva's story when I started to see (*gasp*) a plot hole. I knew it would be something I'd have to adjust for or completely fix. I was opting for adjusting, but I didn't see how I was going to be able to … Continue reading Book almost lost
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
Last night at six minutes into this new day (yup, that's 12:06 a.m.), I finished the second book of the trilogy. This afternoon, I started the third book. I've gone way longer in the first chapter than I probably should have, but I'm letting it run right now. I feel like a lot of it … Continue reading And I’m off…
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…
As the title states, the short story I've been working on a majority of this week is now finished, save for a spell check. Which is good because it's due tomorrow. With luck, I will actually have it turned in tonight. That's my goal. Plus, my day included a two hour nap. I'm starting to … Continue reading Short story finished
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?
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.
