Oh. My. God. Today was the day you want to be a novelist for. Yesterday, I’d set Cady up with a banquet on an activity card, and a crazy thirty-plus hour schedule she was going to have to get through in which she would not have a single minute to herself, and in which she… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: Totally left-fielded myself today. WOW!

The Wishbone Conspiracy: 2068 words, and I passed the halfway point
This was a good writing day, in spite of the fact that I slept in, AND in spite of the fact that I had a hard time getting started this morning. Pushups and coffee only go so far. Problem was, I woke up at around four AM, and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: 2068 words, and I passed the halfway point
The Wishbone Conspiracy: Flying words, and ONE word that summoned a new world
This morning was an awesome experience. First, I got 2117 words on The Wishbone Conspiracy. Fun words. I woke up a little late, got started a little later, but nevertheless popped open my Scrivener document, headed into the last words I’d written, scanned my plan for the chapter, and jumped in. The words started slowly—… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: Flying words, and ONE word that summoned a new world
I’ve UNPUBLISHED Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood, and Warpaint
This was a tough decision to make. I’ve pulled both Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood and Warpaint from circulation. They will be back… But not until I know I’m going to put them in front of the readers who will love them. I’m going to have to get (or make) new covers for both books, completely… Continue reading I’ve UNPUBLISHED Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood, and Warpaint
Got my words on Dead Man’s Party — that was the fun, interesting, easy part. We did a site update over at HollysWritingClasses.com that was overall just buttery smooth. But I did not have “Test Downloads” in my list of post-update checking, and downloads were not, therefore, tested. And guess what was broken? Dan fixed them… Continue reading Mondays… -@*~&#$^
The Wishbone Conspiracy: Crossed the 30K mark!
Was not the smoothest start I ever had, considering I was at the desk and writing at 8:45 AM, and it’s now 11:30 and I just finished my words. I got a little distracted listening to Disturb’s latest album, Evolution, which has some damn compelling lyrics. It’s utterly loopable — I can just put the whole thing… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: Crossed the 30K mark!
The Wishbone Conspiracy: Words with wings, and conspiracy!
Today went well. Seriously, and it was a nice change. Becky and I ran to a ten-minute timer, and in about two hours I got 2016 words — and I like them. And I thought it would be fun to capture this morning’s starting words and ending words as screen shots, and let you see… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: Words with wings, and conspiracy!
The Wishbone Conspiracy: Dark
Today was much rougher than it should have been. I got in early, got started, and the words just inched out. But at the point where Cady and Badger ended up face to face (in a fashion that is the core conflict of this novel), everything all of a sudden flowed like melting butter. It… Continue reading The Wishbone Conspiracy: Dark
The Pointy Marketing End of Writing Fiction: Old Dog, New Trick
No big secret that I’m working hard on making my fiction a full-time paying gig again — my objective is to earn 50% of my income from fiction, with the other 50% coming from my writing classes. Fiction has been shoved over in a corner for years, because, well — writing good nonfiction is about… Continue reading The Pointy Marketing End of Writing Fiction: Old Dog, New Trick
The Emerald Sun: Lost some time to the world
I got 879 words today — not the 1500 I’d planned. But Genna found herself at the end of the world, and it took me a while to figure out how to get that part of the scene right. The dragon and his many voices has rejoined the party, and the cat had a terrible… Continue reading The Emerald Sun: Lost some time to the world
