One Day More…

Standard

No, I’m not going to start singing one of the pivotal points of Les Mis. And really it’s two days. Today and tomorrow. My attempt at another NaNoWriMo is getting a shaky start. My first go at it, my grandmother passed right before the end. Last year, I got so wrapped up in what happened the year before that I nearly didn’t make it. This year, right before kick off, my older brother was in a motorcycle accident.

He’s okay!! Only a few broken ribs and he’s home healing now. It was kind of scary. No one that loves a rider wants to get that phone call at 7am on a Sunday. But like I said, he’s alright and I can try to get my ideas focused for the challenge.

Right now, I’m getting my focus back. Adam and Izzy are going to be working towards each other and finding out how to break Adam’s curse while trying to stay out of Olivia’s crosshairs. You’ll have to wait and see. My may even try to write out an outline (…they never work for me. I go off on a completely different tangent.)!!!

So I’ll make sure to keep you all posted!!!!

Gearing Up for November…

Standard

Hey everyone!!!

As the title says, I’m getting ready for November. For the past 2 years I’ve been part of the NaNoWriMo, and this year is going to be no exception. Instead of working on Auspicious Affairs (Sorry Victor), I’m going to be working on Love’s Darkness. There are also a couple of other moves that I’m thinking about making. So far, I can extend this to at least 4 novels: Beauty and the Beast, Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel, which is going to be 2 books.

So, I want this to be good, and epic, and while parts of me feel like I’m failing, I have to remember that while I’m writing, it’s not set in stone. I was nearly finished with chapter 2 when I decided to toss out everything but the prologue… and while I’m happy with it, there may be things that I still need to change. Oh well, that’s the life of a writer I guess.

As for everything else, I’m STILL working on an armor for my daughter, and hopefully I’ll be done by Halloween. But between writing, and this costume… yeah, not too much is getting done.

And that’s pretty much all from me for now. I’ll be back with an update soon!!!!

Oh… The Temptation….

Hey everyone!!! This popped up on my Facebook newsfeed this morning, and I have to say I love it. When you really think about it, that is so true!!!

Okay, so maybe you won’t know how people would react to hear “Oh, Gerald was a good man. A fierce warrior, the heart of a lion really. It’s just a shame he fell to the Fluffy Bunny…”

Let’s be real, if you’re slain, then you’re dead. But just knowing that if you DO fall, it’s something your name will become famous for all the wrong reasons….

I love that!!! I’m even tempted to name a weapon in a novel “Fluffy Bunny” or something just as innocent sounding…. “Pinky’s Kiss” “Butterfly’s Wing” “Pikachu”

Okay, maybe not that last one, but you get my meaning. πŸ™‚

And on the writing front, I was able to get a decent amount of work done. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some more of it done. I’ve gone back and re-written Adam and Izzy’s first meeting. There are just a few more things that are going to go down before I cut to chapter 2.

Well… that’s all from me for the moment. I just wanted to share that LOL.
See Ya Next Time!!!!

Rewrites and Do-overs….

Standard

Hey everyone!!! I’m just dropping in and letting everyone know what’s going on. The first thing I want to mention is that Dangerous Dalliances is in print!!! It should hit Amazon in the next couple of days, but at the moment, it’s in my Createspace store (https://www.createspace.com/4210072).

As for my new projects, I’ve been going over them time and time again. And it looks like there are going to be some do-overs in my future. Auspicious Affairs is slow goings. In the Maxwell Investigations Universe are changing and I have to map out exactly what’s going to be going on.

As for Love’s Darkness… I have to map out this book and series without making Izzy sound too much like other characters that I’ve thought up over the years, or even worse, making her sound like a character SOMEONE ELSE thought up over the years. She seemed a little TOO wide-eyed and Mary Sue for my tastes. So I’m going to take a moment to get my thoughts together and have her come back as the strong woman that she’s going to need to be.

Anyway, that’s it. Just stopping by to drop a quick line of what’s going on with my work. Catch you all later!!!
