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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Late so just word count Word count I started Friday with: 57,681 Word count I ended Monday with: 59,509 Total for the day: 1,828 words Question of the Day: Describe your perfect house. Use images if you like. *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.
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. At first my idea was to use the post as a placement for the trellis, but then I realized that the end of the porch there is at a sort of angle. So when I make it straight out from the porch, it looked wonky.
Too much going on. Just word count. Word count I started Friday with: 53,266 Word count I ended Monday with: 55,761 Total for the day: 2,495 words Question of the Day: What are your favorite toppings for a sandwich? *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.
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.
Got a full hour of writing in for a change, so my word count is incredibly nice. I’m liking it. Only just now got the dark wifi back on, so I’m only making this a word count, and the Question of the Day. Word count I started Friday with: 48,882 Word count I ended Monday with: 51,189 Total […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Today was one of those days when things get stuttery. It’s not that I have a problem
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 […]
Too much stuff going on.
My characters as usual, decided that they would go a different route in the story. I was thinking
Released chapter one of Daughter of the Red Planet to read for free. Got a lot of things to do so I’m just making a word count post.
I feel pretty out of it today and I’m not sure why. I think it’s stress catching up.
I just noticed that I am about 26K words into Under Empty Stars. Fshew. Making good progress.
