And so it goes

I got the beginning of the sequel reworked last night. I’m not sure if I like it, but it does seem to speed things along. I cut about 400 words anyway. The problem is that the tone is slightly different. I’m going to need another pass at the whole piece to see if I can […]

Revamp

I’m trying desperately to finish the rough draft of the sequel to Hedge Doctor before summer is over. Originally, I wanted to finish this month, but that’s not looking feasible. Especially since I decided I needed revamp a few things. Normally, I don’t worry too much about reworking scenes until I finish the draft, but […]

Revising my goals

I was looking over my schedule, and I realized that I had to adjust my timeline goals… again. For one thing, as much as I love working on my novels, they aren’t a money making venture… yet. Someday, but not yet. They need more polish and a professional editor. So, for now, I need to […]

Yes, it’s one in the morning

And since I’m up and it’s technically Tuesday, I’m getting my daily writing post done. Also, and I have soooo looking forward to this, it’s a Tuesday, so the web comic has updated. I loved watching  Miss Ashley draw and color this panel. Plus actual dialogue and characters! Now, I’m going to attempt to finish that story I’ve been working […]

Trouble

I haven’t quite had writer’s block, where I don’t know what to write. Instead, I just haven’t been writing. I know what  I want to write. I have plenty of time to get it done. I just haven’t been. So starting yesterday, I’m determined to get back to writing. If I don’t want to be […]

The Power of Symbolism

Just been thinking about of symbols and the power they hold over people lately. Decided to do what I do best, and write it all out. So this a short that would be taking place during Uncommon Animals, right before Hunter’s Moon. And it’s from Sonja’s point of view, because I didn’t do enough of […]

Up and about

Still scratchy-voiced, but not sick. At least, I don’t have the hang dog, just let me go back to bed feelings of yesterday. I chugged some nyquil and went to bed early last night. Time damn well spent. Today, I’m alredy nose deep in Red Witch. Having issues because Edie is smart. And the problem with […]

Still busy

Memorial Day is coming up, and I’m trying to focus on the Red Witch. Which is hard, because it’s finally sunny and warm, again. I did manage to finish the first story in the sequel to Hedge Doctor this week. And more than a few chapters of Red Witch. I’m quickly approaching the last of […]

Red Witchy Woman

Even as I prep to release Hedge Doctor: Prom and am polishing Last Call, I’m drafting my second novel, The Red Witch. Today, I’m a little frustrated. It’s a pacing issue. My novels all play with narrative structure. While I kept my shorts and novellas straight forward (For the most part. Talasam and Hunted Down both […]

The pieces fit

I’m big into mood music when I write. I have several lists. Some are cast specific (The Pack from my novels has their own playlist), some are story specific. The song from above is from the Red Witch playlist. And I was super glad I heard this morning, because I got one of my sporadic […]
