And I have been writing. It’s just that this is a fight scene, and one I am rewriting from a new character’s POV. So I’m not just fixing up the fight, but rewriting big chunks of it because Barb wouldn’t know what a trained warrior would. It’s exhausting, mentally. It’s one thing to switch POV between characters with […]
So I’ve been not so much rewriting as rearranging Red Witch. No new scenes, just a new timeline for scenes. Occasionally, I switch POV or squash a few together, or extend something, but nothing new. Until today. I knew this was coming. After all, the point of this rearrangement is that I needed more action sequences. […]
So the betas are all over Red Witch, and a few are even combing The Haven again. But these are dense books that require concentration… and Red Witch is still finding it’s way, and that’s a long complicated process that will take years to finish… In other words, I’m bored. This isn’t to knock my […]
Here’s a blog post I did over the weekend. Read this if you need my literary musings. I have a chapter to finish.

Been running my butt off all week, doctor’s appointments, back to school night, play practice… etc. Finally things are getting a little less hectic. One beta reader got back to me. She’s a fan of the longer ending. Still waiting on the others. Which is hard. Luckily, I have some critiques and editing on a […]
It’s an essential writer’s tool, though one I don’t use as often as most. In the great plotter (people who plan out their stories) vs pantser (People who just make their stories up as they go), I’m a plantser. Studying plots and storytelling means that I tend to think in more general terms when drafting. […]
I love Urban Fantasy. From Buffy to Anne Rice, vampires, witches, and monsters, and the people to fight/love them are my cup of tea. However, in this genre you have to be careful. It’s very easy to slip from drama into melodrama. Humor helps to combat this. So today’s adventures in editing to go through […]
