Fascinating how the brain works

Something which fascinates me. When I first wrote DARK ILLUSIONS: THE BEGINNING, that book was it. I had zero plans to do another after, let alone a series, or a dang world of 12 books that it’d be a part of. BUT, this is in the novel (circled sentence) and I wrote it with again, […]

And now the test of finding Sean

I’ve shared a conversation which Julian had with Cara regarding Sean’s disappearance – https://kimberlysueiverson.com/2014/07/22/overheard-conversation-between-cara-and-julian/ – before and I have a strong hunch that it’s going to be difficult for them to find him. As the writer, I know that they will have to find Sean to help Kat, and what his demands might be.

Heart facts

Since a scene in Ancient Scars deals with how much blood a heart can produce with each beat, I had to search that out.

Story creation – characters

Stone, Stone, Stone. How you do fascinate me. As I edit DAUGHTER OF THE RED PLANET (play with story notes now that the editor has the book) and ANCIENT SCARS, I discover a whole new plot line with one particular character. I have a load of scenes percolating for when I write the third in […]

Handy trick to holding paper while editing

Thought I would share if you were looking for similar idea. Constantly having to look from my manuscript to the laptop was making me get headaches and nausea too easy while inputting changes from my paper manuscript to my digital (constant movement like that for me is icky). I wanted to figure out how to […]

Kennedy is a stinker. #amwriting

I seriously need to just break Kennedy’s story. I know it’s a series and I’ve gone well past 120K by now, but I just keep writing instead. It’s getting ridiculous.

Cover idea light bulb moment – doh!

I made the image that’s being used above, for the background of a snippet I shared a while ago. Well, the other night I went . . . I could totally use that for a book cover!

Ugh. Tired Scene from Hope. Reworking.

Here is the sort of thing that bores me to read, which means it’s getting a complete overhaul. I know you’d be bored to read this. It’s not necessary for me to go on and on about the living room (not important to the STORY), let alone mention a window being electrified when Hope stood […]

Outlining leads to discoveries #amoutlining #amwriting

It’s interesting what happens when I outline. I’ve been working with the outlines for all my books lately, going through them, refreshing the brain. Reminding myself where I want to take the stories and such. I was working with the outline for Ellie and Haley (they will be connected), and I discovered something that may […]

Hope of the Future Symbols

I could use your help. I was going to just share this image that I made. This was my inspiration for the symbols of power in Hope of the Future, but now I think I need one more. I have no clue what it should be. The positions of power include: Leader (of everything) Amaranthine […]

Every little word counts

When a reader reads a book, their gut may or may not like something about the Story. They can’t always put a finger on it, but something may feel off. Sometimes it’s each word that is used. When I’m doing my self-editing, I’m going over every single word in a sentence, every single sentence in […]

#ArianasWriting – Colbie Caillat – Try – #Inspirational

I have been bad about updating this, I am aware. Updated all my word counts. I’m really loving this Cody story. Starting to think of new ways to take the story, which I’m enjoying. I like the idea of a female Jekyl/Hyde thing, but she’s not just a scientist, but an alchemist. Interesting. Love it! […]

Dark Illusions – Kat’s Dress in The Final Chapter

Added a pin to the board, check out the dress I had in mind when I wrote Dark Illusions: The Final Chapter scene where Kat wears a dress just to screw with Julian’s head. You know the one . . . where he screwed with her mind, instead? Mhm. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/284993482645097969/ When it began: […]one of her glamorous white […]

Here it is. Your official cover for Hope of the Future. I’d hoped to have the page ready today too, but I haven’t worked out a great synopsis. Once I do, I will share that page too! I’ll try for next Monday for that. What do you think?

So I began editing the first in the werewolf (see? never know if I should add a capital to it or not) series last week. Or I’m at the third edit, which is inputting all the edits I marked up on my physical copy, into the digital copy. Not sure how long it will take. […]

Wake up this morning to find out that I was so frazzled trying to get everything done to prepare for Kendra coming home, that when I wrote my prompt post and prepared it to go out today, I apparently didn’t get around to double-checking the title itself. haha Going through the emails this morning to see […]
