This is the feed for my blog. I update the blog... occasionally? What's a phrase for "Not Terribly Frequently" that makes me sound busy rather than lazy? "When the mood strikes?", "As time allows?", "Every fortnight?" Hmmm.

I update the blog as much as I can. I'm writing, you know.

Work In Progress Wednesday

Work In Progress Wednesday

Feels weird not to have the book to work on every day. To be honest I’ve missed that daily productivity. I’ve been catching up with my poetry and short story submissions over the last week or so. I’m gathering notes for when I attack the book…

Work in Progress Wednesday

It’s Alive! I’ve put the last few hundred words down and I’m officially calling the first draft done! It needs a ton of work in the second draft, but the first is done. I hit 81,428 words yesterday and slowly backed away from the laptop. I’m…

You know what time it is!

I’m closing in on the end of my first draft of the book. I’m at about 65,000 words of what I’m planning to be an 80,000 to 85,000 word novel. You know what that means? That’s right. It’s time to prematurely start making my list…

My wife’s Valentine’s Day gift to me? The freedom to go to a coffee shop today and write for a few hours. Awww. What a great present! It’s just my size too! I’ve managed to catch up on my fiction and poetry story submissions and…

It’s only a learning experience if you learn something

Got my contributor’s copys of the new issue of A Thousand Faces. I always enjoy that magazine (even when I’m not in it!) and they did a great job with this issue as well. It’s full of superhero goodness. I had a weird switcharoo with…

WIP Wednesday – Moving right along

WIP Wednesday – Moving right along

Ah yes, progress on the work in progress is… progressing. I’m so close to the halfway mark I can taste it. And it tastes like cookies. Warm, fresh-from-the oven chocolate chip, macadamia nut, double fudge cookies. What was I talking about? Writing? Really? Ok. Things…
