That is the question I deal with today. In trying to work on the trilogy yesterday, I started feeling like something was going wrong, like maybe scenes were out of order. I feel like I've reordered them once, even though the truth is that scenes I was able to merge in one of the scenes … Continue reading To tear apart or not to tear apart?
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!
**Cue the Rocky music** I was down 5,700 words last night when I went to bed. I've written that much in a day before. I think my highest word count for non-fiction is 13,000 words in a day, but yes, that was 15 hours of straight writing. Someday, I might turn those words into a … Continue reading Making a comeback
I made the trip to Boise today to visit with my writer friend, Merri Halma, who I'm narrating the first book in her Indigo Travelers series. We had a preliminary visit to start getting her setup for putting her audiobook up and discussing the business of writing. I had fun. I hope she did too. … Continue reading Back from Boise
A long time ago, chapters were posted on my blog every week. They have all since been pulled down and the novel completed. It is much different than what was here. Now, Palladium is available as a finished novel. © Rodjulian | Dreamstime.com © Xneo | Dreamstime.com© Gualtiero Boffi | Dreamstime.com I do have to send a shout-out to Amazon customer support.

Back to normal... mostly. I woke up this morning feeling so much better. Yippee! My writing computer, however, wasn't. I think it tried to do a software update that didn't quite make it through. Just like a booster shot, it felt a little ill too. Anyway, I had a strange screen and weird messages. After … Continue reading Back to normal
For as well as I thought I was doing last night, I wasn't obviously doing as well as I thought. I woke up this morning with a headache and aches from yesterday's booster. It's been up and down all day. I wish I could say that I was trying to get to writing all day, … Continue reading Yeah, right…
Went to town early today to get some shopping done. With the snow storms and icy roads, I've been trying to stay home. But today looked decent, so we went out to restock. Especially the coffee. It was getting dreadfully low. And the water. We've been trying to make due with the water machines in … Continue reading Taking it easy
At least one of them this week. I'm close, very close, to reaching my word goal for this week. I might even be able to get there if this blog post runs what it typically does. So, I think that one is in the bag. Painting, however, will be the next challenge. I do think … Continue reading I approach the goal
The plan to get Temmy to sleep last night worked. With the exception that I had to hold her all night. If I rolled over, she came to the other side and bugged me until I let her cuddle next to me, usually with her head on my arm. Whatever helps us both sleep, right? … Continue reading Back in the running
