Kobo rates DARK ILLUSIONS: THE BEGINNING higher in Sci Fi Fantasy, Horror. I find that interesting. Even more is that DARK ILLUSIONS: THE NEXT CHAPTER is rated higher than that (it’s numbered in the top 2500). All without advertising or working hard at trying to gain numbers too.
How the muse works – I am completely in awe of how our brains are able to perform amazing feats that we don’t even know we can? Until it’s been done.
Today I started in on Cody again. That would be my little alchemist. I left off with her trying to escape from the man who is forcing her to help him build something. He has yet to refer to it as anything other than a “project” for him, but Cody isn’t stupid. She pieces thingsContinue reading “Today’s #amwriting – Cody the #alchemist”
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!
One of the biggest reasons that I adore my editor are her comments in the midst of my heavy editing. For me that is one big reason why she is a standout editor. She understands that it’s a headache producing task, and will intersperse random thoughts of hers into the rest of the comments
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 mayContinue reading “Outlining leads to discoveries #amoutlining #amwriting”
Time to catch in with Ellie, being it is the furthest behind. Which isn’t by much. We left her at the arena, watching Stone in the fighting ring. He had just taken down his opponent, and Anox, another fighter, has been eyeing Ellie a little too close from across the ring. Anox was a fighterContinue reading “#ArianasWriting – Ellie”
Time to see what Cody is up to this morning. How is she going to handle Guerin’s proposal on what he wants of her? Will she cooperate nicely, or is she going to pretend to, only to fight it, and end up finding a way out? I think the latter.
You know, I have to say that despite the challenges, I am really enjoying writing about Cody/Dakota. I notice little things here and there while I write, that either Cody does, or Guerin does, that speaks so much, without being direct. Dakota has made an appearance, but for the most part, it’s generally only aroundContinue reading “#ArianasWriting – Cody”
Good morning, everyone. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Just for you, for a good morning treat, here is a but of cuteness. Baby Kendra face. Is it any wonder that her kids all inherited those precious baby faces? Gosh. Early morning and quiet here, so I’m going to do some reading, then get toContinue reading “#ArianasWriting – Good Morning!”
Afternoon pondering. I read something recently from Susan Dennard about her keeping a writing journal. She does it for herself (offline), which is what this is going to be done for, yet I will probably do it here. This way I keep myself accountable, a lot easier. There’s not much to it. Journal about yourContinue reading “Writing Journal – 9-28-2014 – Beginning”
