  • Finishing Thorsday Night: Starting In

    Closing on ten p.m., and I’ve had and enjoyed my weekend and a break from work. And, equally important, the story has had two days to sit on the hard drive while I did not think much about it. From time to time I’d get pings from my subconscious/ Right Brain/ muse, so I have…

  • Thorsday Night: 6813 words, and done

    Back Sunday night for the revision. I have worked hard to earn my weekend, and I intend to enjoy it. Hope you do, too. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Thorsday Night: To Kill . . . Or Not To Kill

    Down to the last scene. I’ve finished 5865 words, and I’m still trying to decide if the story is better served by having the villain live, or die. I hate him—I really, really hate him—and I want him to die. But I can nail some great plot points either way. That and the ending are…

  • Thorsday Night: Still on target

    1676 words to go. Heading into the climactic confrontation, where I have two good twists planned. Nila and Per (my handsome Swede) were in deep trouble, only from the looks of things, the trouble has all just shifted to Nila’s shoulders. This is such a blast. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Thorsday Night: 882 more words

    I’m at 3687 words. And right at the midpoint, I came up with a better way to do the story, which is going to require significant rewriting. Probably on Sunday night. Something my main character found out in scene three now has to be transferred to scene four, which is going to cause some word…

  • Thorsday Night becomes Friday morning

    3701 words to do today, but I dreamed the story, and I woke up with a serious improvement on the ending, and I’m ready to go. The time travel twist is pretty twisty now. [steps up to mic, taps mic, murmurs “Is this thing on? … on? … on? … on?”] I’d like to take…

  • Thorsday Night: Update 4

    Scene Three done, have done the first big shocker and the first bit that made me tear up a little as I was writing it. Now have 2799 words. A mere 451 more words will get me to my deadline for tonight. I think I like this one better than Light Through Shadow. Download as…

  • Thorsday Night Writers: 1703 Words, and Scene Two Done

    Yeah. It’s still falling into place. Ended with a good, tight cliffhanger, and the mystery deepening. What would you do if someone handed you a printed and bound book you’d written and tucked away, and have never shown anyone…that has been printed 50 years in the future? Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Thorsday Night Writers: Update 2

    Just finished the first scene with 892 words. A little long, but the story is coming together nicely. I’ve introduced hero, heroine, villain, and twist, and have laid in all sorts of twisty little Muse-Bombs that will go off a few scenes down the road. And the villain is a criminal defense attorney. Who knew?…
