Write Tunes – May

I've been really busy lately. I'm amazed that I found time to write some somewhat decent poems actually. Unfortunately, I think my schedule combined with another round of good ol' depression has pushed my expected finish date back a little. So now I'll just say I'm hoping to be done by the end of the… Continue reading Write Tunes – May

I have tamed the Dragon

To my surprise, Dragon Con had a lot of accomplished authors. And they had some pretty great panels. I will admit, the first panel I attended wasn't at all what I was expecting. Who would've thought a panel titled "The Pen & The Sword: Arming the Written Word" would turn out to be four military… Continue reading I have tamed the Dragon

Write Tunes – My Love

I'm in a bind, trying to figure out how much research is necessary to make things believable. But also, how to balance how much research is explicitly used before it becomes too much and draws attention away from what really matters. That's my chief problem. Well right now anyway. In magical realism, there's a political… Continue reading Write Tunes – My Love

A Game of Choices

At first, I was going to make this into a dream poem but I wanted to be more explicit in the description of this particular dream. What's a Choice? I dreamt a dream I shouldn't remember. A clever dream, really. A dream more easily forgotten than the next, yet remembered. If only slightly. In another… Continue reading A Game of Choices

Write Tunes – Shuffle

It's been a weird week. I'm making a lot of headway, but I guess I wanted to quickly talk about trusting the reader. For example, my protagonist is more focused on other things and doesn't pay a lot of attention to mundanity. In this situation, I don't feel like this needs to be stated. It's… Continue reading Write Tunes – Shuffle

Write Tunes – Sunday Best

First day back at the library. Sorely needed. Didn't have much time to write but it was still like a breath of fresh air. It felt good to be back at it in a peaceful environment. And I'll definitely be re-incorporating it back into my schedule when time allows. I've slowed myself down a lot… Continue reading Write Tunes – Sunday Best

Learning and Stuff

Just wanted to say today that I think I'm finally out of my rut. I think I can finally get back to work for real this time, especially since the the kiddos are all back in school and now the library won't be an ironically loud mess. That was part of the problem, but certainly… Continue reading Learning and Stuff

Write Tunes – Glass

It's been getting harder and harder to write lately. Can't place why exactly. It's like if I can just get started that I can write pages and pages, but getting started is so difficult now. I don't think forcing it is a healthy practice but I think it's the only way to get through it… Continue reading Write Tunes – Glass

Destiny Islands

It's been probably about a year since I posted this the first time. I've made a lot of changes since then and I guess I'm just trying to find out if there are still more changes that need to be made. I've said before that I think the first chapter is the most important for… Continue reading Destiny Islands

Throw it in Reverse

I'm sure I've talked about how important I think feedback is before, but here I go again, bear with me. I've had a pretty difficult time finding people I trust to read everything I've written and offer me some constructive criticism. On one hand, I totally understand that people have lives of their own that… Continue reading Throw it in Reverse
