The Perfection Monster

READ MORE

So I stumbled upon this article today, and to say that it hit home is a bit of an understatement.

I know this is really going to shock most of you… You might want to sit down when I reveal this… You ready? Hold on…

I struggle with perfectionism.

I’ll pause while you all gasp in surprise and recover your faculties.

READ MORE

I’m attempting to re-read Ravenmarked and Bloodbonded in order to avoid continuity issues with Unquickened. I did manage to get through Ravenmarked. This is what it looked like when I was done:

Catching Up

READ MORE

Oh hey there, friends.

I have no idea how I managed to let three months go by without so much as an “I’m still alive” post. It feels like I JUST posted something. I don’t know where the three months went. Suffice to say… I’m still alive.

This spring has been reasonably uneventful. In the general news category….

Forward Motion

And all of a sudden, November is tomorrow.

It’s been crazy busy around here. It’s been mostly good. I’m getting actual work, which is nice–I’m not inundated yet, but I have enough work that I can actually sit down most days and do something for a client. We’re still definitely in the “ramping up” stage… I have one large contract and one smallish one. I’m working on more.

Story Problems

Two weeks later…

I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time getting back into a blogging routine. When I had “Modicum of Talent,” I blogged reliably. Maybe I got burned out–I don’t know. In any case, it’s not so much that I forget about the blog. It’s more a combination of factors like the lack of routine in summer, the feeling that I really have nothing new to say, the reluctance to spend time during the day writing… It seems like blogging falls to the bottom of the priority list most of the time.

In any case, I have been writing. (more…)

So Much for Once a Week…

READ MORE

Remember how I said I’d update once a week with how the writing was going?

Yeah, that was cute.

It’s been a little over two weeks since I committed to attempting to write 500 words a day, every day, and to update the blog weekly with my progress. Well, I guess summer happened, because I obviously have not updated the blog.

I have, however, written.

The Why

READ MORE

I’ve been thinking the last couple of days about the “why” of writing. Why do I do this thing? Why do I want to? It certainly seems to be a tortuous experience, one in which I rarely see the point anymore, and yet I do it or wish I could do it.

I have a history of telling stories. Before I was writing them down, I was making them up. I had a running tale about Peter Pan and the Lost Boys in my head for years. (more…)

Still Kickin’…

Good morning, threes of fans.

It’s morning here–12:35 a.m., to be precise. I should be asleep, especially since I slept the last two nights on the ground (camping) and I’m too old to do that without consequences. But I’m wide awake because of course I am.

Anyhoo… Since I can’t sleep, I thought I’d take some time to update y’all on my whereabouts and goings on.
