Hey there!! Apologies for the lack of regular posting, but it’s been quite hectic here!! More than usual, actually. A couple of weeks ago we went out to visit friends and got a text from our eldest son, who basically sent an SOS as the kitchen sink had ‘burst’. When my husband rushed back, he… Continue reading Enjoying The Writing!
Well, long time, no posting! Funny how time can just race past and yet another month has ended and we’re in November. Unlike other, braver souls, I’m not attempting NaNoWriMo! I don’t think I could give the commitment such a project requires. Not at the moment, anyway. On a more positive note, I’ve actually managed… Continue reading Progress…Of A Sort…
Well…I’ve got two entries for a free, signed copy of Vastian Lore. Not bad. I worried no-one would want a copy of the novella, seeing as it’s been out a while now and sales have dropped to the odd one every month. I’ll be the first to admit marketing isn’t my strongest suit. My very… Continue reading Giveaways and Oath of God.
Okay, well, honestly, I haven’t been able to come up with much in the way of blogging. However, I do have an update on the progress of my two wip’s. Firstly, I think I’ve managed to sort out the issue with Wolf Born and it has to do with character rather than story. I realised… Continue reading Books and Dreams
No matter how hard I try to squeeze more hours out of my day I just can’t seem to get everything done. I’d like a time machine/tardis to give me a bit of extra of work time. I’ve got a lot of writing on my plate and two wips running alongside each other. Furniture projects… Continue reading Lots of Plans…Not Enough Time
There’s a huge debate going on at the moment regarding what an author should or shouldn’t pay out for publishing their work. For me personally, it’s all about perspective. Oh, and what you can afford, of course. Self-publishing is all about doing it for yourself. There are costs involved because you are in charge of… Continue reading Price of Publishing…
Right! *coughs to clear throat* It’s decided. I’m going to use Scrivener for my secondary project Oath of God. By hook or by crook, I’m going to figure this out and utilise this tool. To make life easier for me, I’ll be printing off the pages relevant to me as a guide and probably using… Continue reading Scrivener and Scribbling!
The title of this post is somewhat misleading. I’m not here to tell anyone how to formulate or create a story and even less how to write a book. All I can say, is how I do things. My brain cells hubble and bubble and stew up an idea I take notes. (if the idea… Continue reading A Novel Construction
Well, basically, I’m way behind. Not a little bit or even a smidge. My deadline has been screwed up and tossed out the window. It’s out there, right now, weeping in the rain. Okay. So, a little melodramatic, but you get the gist. I’m sure there are writers/authors out there who know what I’m talking about.… Continue reading Flunking
I’ve got this serious affliction where I’m averse to, what I would call, sugary endings. It’s not that I haven’t appreciated the nice bow-wrapped endings of other books in the past, but it’s just not my own personal style to finish my work that way. Maybe, it’s a flaw? I don’t know. I’ve tried it.… Continue reading Writing A Novel…Eventually.
