  • Where Creation Strikes

    Where Creation Strikes

    Watching World War Z the other day really has my mind working. After I watched it, I had the thought hit me that creates books. The thought was: I want to write a book like that. I’ve been thinking about the type of books I write, and the ones I’m drawn to write. I find…

    Editing Cessation

     Editing of Cessation is going well. Slow, but all right. Worst part of editing for me I think is this one. Inputting the edits from the paper file to the digital. Lots of work. Slow going. I tend to get bored and want to wander during this phase. Here is a snippet of the area…

    Began again

     Okay! Finally back to it. Blogging, that is. I’ve had to take two weeks or whatever it was off because of something that came up. I was beyond tired and didn’t want to deal with blogging my word count, or discussing the book while I was incredibly tired. Below is still Under Empty Stars for now. I…

    Where will it end

     I’m at 61 thousand + words and I feel like there is much more to tell. I’m very curious if I’ll be able to complete this book, or it’ll keep going. I think I can, but it may end up being a lot longer than normal. I could well go to the 100K mark, just…

    Eet’s meh 36th birthday

    I’m so wiped. Had a tummy ache today this morning, which is always exhausting. On top of that, I’ve been trying to build a tall arbor for a climbing rose, not a wide one, so I’ve been digging posts a lot. Well, it’s one post, but I’ve had to dig multiple holes for it, haha.…

    Over halfway with AS

    I am now over halfway through editing Ancient Scars. I worked in the yard this morning so I already feel wiped out and it’s only 1:30 pm. I’ve been cleaning up a corner where old lumber had gathered. The wood made a cave that the rats enjoyed bedding up in.

    Good amount of words

    New planet, new things to explore. Well the planet isn’t new to us, since it’s Earth as we know it (though in the future), but my character Ellie has never been to Earth. She was born on Eli’ane, which is much like Mars to us in many ways.

    Gush fest

    Didn’t post this on Friday. I was tired, and had been printing out Under Empty Stars (166 pages!) as well as getting my newsletter ready, so I was a bit tired. Today was an emotional day of writing. Had to keep taking a deep breath so I could focus and not start crying along with Ellie, haha. I’ll…

    Halfway through UES so thoughts are on next to write

    Hard to get writing in this morning. The dogs kept barking because my mother got up. Lucy sleeps with her and my mom has trained Lucy that when they get up, Lucy should bark down the hall to get Kona up to play with. I have to be the bad guy and correct the behavior. The Dark Moon…

    When you force yourself to quit

    Had to pull myself away today. The story was going so well, and things were just working out perfectly. The story was flowing well, the characters were feeding me . . . and I didn’t want to stop! Love those days.   In other news, Daughter of the Red Planet released today, I just released the paperback…
