Three A.M. Wakeup: The NEXT Cadence Drake
Technically it was the thunder that woke me up, but the Longview story I’m writing now (#4, still without a title) had stirred up something in the back of my mind. In Longview #4, there’s this game AI, you see. She’s really cool. Name is Retha. And I got to thinking about her, and about… Continue reading Three A.M. Wakeup: The NEXT Cadence Drake
Made some nifty progress on the next Longview story
Had a really good writing day today, to the point of getting sucked into the story, forgetting to keep track of my timer, and writing about half an hour over my planned hour. Details here. Because I wrote more elsewhere, and am already behind on the other things I need to do today.

Finished the story last Tuesday with 40,000-plus words, which made it officially a novel. But back of the mind said, Don’t say anything. Not yet. You don’t have… Continue reading Finished Vipers’ Nest… Until I didn’t.
Oh. My. God. The wonder of a good writing day.
I was writing the battle scene in Longview 4: The Vipers’ Nest, and I thought things were getting a little away from me. And all of a sudden Herog had a revelation about the battle he was fighting that told me three things: How a tiny space station in an out-of-the-way corner of its galaxy… Continue reading Oh. My. God. The wonder of a good writing day.

I’m new to Patreon. I probably made an error setting up my rewards for the day after Patreon said it collected pledges, which is on the first of each month. It’s now the fourth of the month, and as far as I can tell, Patreon has not collected a single pledge from a single one… Continue reading EVERYONE gets my Patreon rewards this month… with NO sign-up
