WRITING AND WIP’S So…Here goes…The writing endeavor is going well, for a change! I’ve made progress with Oath of God, with the main plot, sub-plots and general theme of the book. I’ve got my mojo back, basically, I can actually concentrate enough that I can get some serious work done. I’m aiming for a target of at… Continue reading Wednesday Wrangles…
Okay, so far I haven’t really posted much this year, mostly because I haven’t had much to say! Now, I’ve got a plan…A dastardly, I mean cunning plan for my writing goals! I didn’t achieve everything I wanted in 2016. In fact, I think last year was pretty dismal with regards to writing. I got… Continue reading Writing Goals!
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…
Hey there!! Well, the whole writing debacle hasn’t been going all that great. Due to various personal issues, I’ve had to take a step back from Oath of God and concentrate on all of my other appointments, family, friends, and health issues. I’ve just dealt with yet another problem and thankfully found time to write… Continue reading Writing Wrangles…
Okay, I’ve blogged the cover reveal as promised!! Anyone who wants to reblog that is quite welcome to do so! *hint* 😀 Oath of God is underway and the end is in sight! There’s 7,000 words to do this week to keep me on track. I’ve got a few tweeks to do on the blurb… Continue reading Weekly Writing Plans!
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
Well, for this midweek post I’m going to take a look at the differences between stories, namely mine. Plus, a few references to some of the books I’ve read that are pretty good. Ok. I’m one of those readers who dwells mainly in the realm of fantasy, with foray into Sci-fi and the odd adventure… Continue reading Epic
Currently, there is a theme going around the indie circuit regarding the ‘deus ex machina’ plot device and the frowning upon of such simplistic usages… Basically, this is the meaning: a Latin calque from Greek ἀπὸ μηχανῆς θεός (apò mēkhanês theós), meaning “god from the machine”. The term has evolved to mean a plot device whereby… Continue reading Friday Frazzles
I suffer from this quite regularly, when thrust into the limelight of social interaction. To me, people are confusing, like I’m looking at them through fog or maybe a warped windowpane? I don’t get small-talk about the weather. What’s up with that? I don’t really talk about my kids much. It’s not that I don’t… Continue reading Discombobulated!
Just realised most of the names for the magical beings in my WIP for Wolf Born start with the same letter. Hmmm…Odd. How’d that happen? Could it be the writer, perchance? Anyhow, it got me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know) how many other writers have an ongoing theme throughout their work? I mean, where… Continue reading Themes
