Vampires and Mermen

Ever since the idea that I should go ahead with publishing Bleeding Gold next year, I've been rewriting some of the earlier parts, adding new content. My first drafts are often summarised versions of my stories, and I add content during the subsequent edit passes. I've added 8k words to Bleeding Gold already.

A Hectic Week

This week had been unlike any other. I had a breakdown at work yesterday and had to leave early. Mental health issues are no fun, and everything is making me more and more convinced that my decision to quit my job next year is the right one.

Depressed pile of goo

It is one year today since I lost my son, and I've been in a funk all week, crying at work, snapping at people, moping around and writing till my hands hurt. Nothing really helps.

I was encouraged to… Continue reading Of Nanowrimo and other things

Rev Pit 10 Queries

I've been on twitter all evening, biting my nails and trying to figure out which of the 10 queries is mine. Pretty sure it's every adult fantasy that needs the most work. I submitted Changes in the Wind for the 10 queries. I'm beginning to wish I had submitted something else now, but I'm certain… Continue reading Rev Pit 10 Queries

Ramblings

I know I said I was planning to take things easy, but when have I ever done that? Lol. Now, I've finished Banished Secret as well, and I think it has turned out better than I thought. Spaces of Silence is with my editor, and she is loving it so far. She said it has… Continue reading Ramblings

Updates

Set in Stone is finally finished, and while I know it needs a lot of work before it is fit to be read by anyone, I'm just so glad it is finally done. Shades of Spring is progressing nicely, and I can smell the ending of Banished Secret as well. OH, did I tell you… Continue reading Updates
