Guatemala/Rebound/Writing

Tomorrow I am in Guatemala. I’m stressed about it. I’m the leader, I haven’t been nearly as meticulous as I generally want to be, and I feel like I’m missing things. Why am I not as meticulous? With work I’m basically doing two jobs:… Continue Reading “Guatemala/Rebound/Writing”

Heroes: Published in October

Weird. I thought this was further off. I was so focused on my novel that I forgot I will be published in October. I thought there would be no more publications this year, that my run for 2015 was finished. It was good. I… Continue Reading “Heroes: Published in October”

What I wrote in my first book

It’s been a humdinger of a week. I always hate this two week stretch as it’s the only time I work a straight 12 days, the majority of them including suits, and there are a good number of flights involved. It even comes complete… Continue Reading “What I wrote in my first book”

I See the Finish Line

It’s right there in front of me. I just got back the edits from my publisher. I have a lot to work in, but I’m hoping in one or two weeks it’s done and then I wait for the 12 weeks until they publish… Continue Reading “I See the Finish Line”

Meeting new people is the same as meeting new characters

Aside: Kelst and Ayne was searched on Google! One of the hits I received was from that. Epic. Those two crazy kids are gaining some traction. Writers are generally a more insular group. Introverts gain their energy with alone time, or only hanging out… Continue Reading “Meeting new people is the same as meeting new characters”

Prologues, what are they good for?

In the very first iteration of my story I had about two pages dedicated to giving a brief history on the world. After reading Game of Thrones and fighting through the story to explore the world, I felt that was fun. I enjoyed having to puzzle… Continue Reading “Prologues, what are they good for?”

Placing the Bar: Tolkien

While reading Lord of the Ring, looking at the amazing job he’s done, I’ve decided that’s what I want to one day create. I’m not a huge fan of his writing style, though I respect it. What I am a huge fan of are his… Continue Reading “Placing the Bar: Tolkien”

Getting published: The Path Begins

It’s begun. Sure I made the payment earlier this week to get published. Today I received the email from my friendly check in coordinator (CiC) Aubrey. It has my path to publication. It look terrifying to tell you the truth, but here we go.… Continue Reading “Getting published: The Path Begins”
