When Your Book is Trying to Kill You…

READ MORE

Y’all. Unquickened is not playing nice. This book is trying to kill me.

I don’t mean this metaphorically. I mean, seriously, characters are reaching across the boundaries of the multiverse with swords and magic and other mystical things to snuff the life out of this adolescent novel and kill me in the process.

This book is trying to kill me.

On Promoting My Fiction…

READ MORE

I just have one question: Why in the holy heck am I not promoting my works of fiction?

Remember this one? The one that started it all?

Let me back up.

A Decade of Fiction

READ MORE

So. September, eh?

That was the last time I checked in with y’all. I’m not sure how I managed to let a whole season pass without so much as a “hey, I’m still alive” post. But then, it’s not like I’ve never done that before…

Fall was very busy for me with freelance copywriting, which was generally a good thing. I did manage to blog a little more over at Story Junction, so maybe I used all of my blogging abilities there instead of here.

In any case, I have many updates…

Writing About Writing

READ MORE

How strange it is to look up and discover that the only thing I have to write about today is writing.

Actual, real-time image of my editing process. That’s my longsuffering husband in the background.

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.

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….

I told you there was forward motion:

Forward Motion

READ MORE

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

READ MORE

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…)
