The Hedgehog and Feast for Crows – Incomplete Series Troubles?

I am of the general belief that revisions can wait until the book is done. Finish the rough draft, take a break, come back and rework the story accordingly. My reasoning for this is pretty straightforward: you don’t know what you’ve got until you’ve… Continue Reading “The Hedgehog and Feast for Crows – Incomplete Series Troubles?”

I’m a Winner!: A Tuesday Post of Accountability

It’s Tuesday again folks. And every Tuesday you will be subjected to regaled by the writing progress I have made over the last week. But! I insist that I not be the only one exposing myself sounding off. Let your comments reflect what kind… Continue Reading “I’m a Winner!: A Tuesday Post of Accountability”

Consistency of Physical Description

I have trouble keeping track of the various eye colors of my characters through one book. In my last completed draft of a book, I caught at least three variations of eye color of my main character’s eyes. Apparently I just couldn’t decide. So,… Continue Reading “Consistency of Physical Description”

The Process, Again

Everyone’s process is different. Everyone’s process switches up too. The original set-up for the CWC (one of my awesome writers’ groups) was based on a writers’ group somewhere up in New England. I’d read about this group in Writer’s Digest and it sounded just… Continue Reading “The Process, Again”

Office Supplies–The Real Reason We’re Writers

As I’ve gone through August, buying school supplies and whatnot for the kids (and myself!) and after a couple recent-er posts from buddies Deb and Ali, I have figured out the real reason that we’re writers. You would think that it would have something… Continue Reading “Office Supplies–The Real Reason We’re Writers”

Time to Pay Up

It’s that day: The day that I must pay up on bet conditions. Since Ali beat me (smoked me! creamed me! made me sit in the corner and cry for three days!) I must now take her to dinner with Deb. Here is also… Continue Reading “Time to Pay Up”

What I’m Learning From This Race

For those of you who may have missed the last couple posts, or may not have understood them, my friends Deb, Ali, fellow blogger B. Freret, and I are all in race to see who can get the most words written in two weeks.… Continue Reading “What I’m Learning From This Race”

The Desk: Take 3: Smack Talk

So, Shane and I (and Matt) have just moved my desk in anticipation of the word race that will commence on Monday. Now it’s in a cubical style layout with Shane’s desk downstairs. Hopefully this means that I won’t wake anyone up while working… Continue Reading “The Desk: Take 3: Smack Talk”

Additional September Goal:

Stomp Ali and Deb! We’re going to officially start next Monday. As there are more takers this go-round, the consequences of failure increase exponentially. Because not only to you not want to lose–but you don’t want to be last. And there’s a difference. If… Continue Reading “Additional September Goal:”

You Too Can Be a Writer’s Hero

The other night, on the evilness that is Facebook, I wound up chatting with a friend that I haven’t seen in months. (I’m pretty sure the chatting was cutting into his writing time, but he didn’t complain.) Adam exudes the impression that he writes… Continue Reading “You Too Can Be a Writer’s Hero”
