Rules for Writers (#2)

I blogged a couple weeks ago about “Rules for Writers.” This was a list I came up with on my lunch break, and it got to be 30+ points, and I felt like I could go further! Last time I only got up to number 2 (rather, 2c…), so I’m going to start with number[…]

The Blog Grows

I’m adding some new additions to the blog. I’ve begun what will one day be an illustrious blogroll. I added a couple neat sites. The Indie View in particular is a irreplaceable tool for indie writers who are trying to solicit to blogs, and it’s where I found most of the blogs I solicited in[…]

I’ll Get There

1. Today I wrote about 6-7,000 thousand words to complete my novella. Total of about 39,000 words. I have no idea whether or not it’s good. I guess I’ll find out when I read it over again and see what needs to be fixed. I have never written a book as fast as I’ve written[…]

The Dark Tower Comes In!

I am a huge Stephen King fan. Well, I say that when I’ve only read three of his books. Actually, four counting Bag of Bones. I read The Stand when I was a teenager, maybe fifteen or sixteen. The extended, 1100 page version. I was completely floored and finished the entire book in about a week. It was[…]

Time to Post Again…and the Promise of Book Giveaways!

Quick blog post, some updates: 1. No more job. Feels kind of weird but whatevs. 2. Potential job? I might be working at Hobby Lobby in their distribution center. Very different from what I did before, but my couple of interviews went well. 3. Almost done with my novella, working series title of Dark Prophecies. I[…]

Rules for Writers

One day about two months ago, I was sitting during my lunch break and got the idea to write a list of “rules” that a writer should live by. I came up with about forty (really 31 rules, but some had sub-rules). Really it was just another expression of my nerdiness in trying to quantify/describe[…]

A post in 5 minutes…go!

I have five minutes to write this before my job starts. I’m very ADHD and always have to be doing something so voila, blog post! All I have to say is I think I have successfully made the conversion to morning person. How did I do this, you ask? It was easy when I gave[…]

The Vexations of a Writer, Avast!

Spent the whole day doing promotion stuff. I’m getting better at it! It’s actually kind of excited. I solicited a total of NINETEEN blogs today about my first book, Night of the Necromancer. That was really cool and I’m expecting great things. The vexation comes with the new upload of the book…it’s doing screwy things I[…]

A blog post I could not think of a title for

Well, yesterday was an interesting day. I got laid off from my boring and not ideal job where I have been working for almost two years. I thought I still had a couple more months on it at least, but in a way it’s a good thing. Working there did not give me much of[…]

Writing Resolution

Alright I’ve been meaning to post much more often that I have, but lately I’ve found I’ve had little to say. I’m surprised to find that my new novella is almost 15,000 words in. I’ve been trying to wake up in the mornings to write on it, but sometimes life gets in the way. My goal[…]

Toughness

Haven’t posted for a while. I want to post at least three to four times a week, but lately I really haven’t much to talk about. Apocalypse is doing just fine, thank you. It’s actually doing slightly more than I expected to, which is great. It feels good. Lately, I’ve been feeling rather discouraged concerning my[…]

Short Post for Today

Don’t really want to spend much time on a post today, but I heard something that’s gotten me thinking: “Giving up is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I’ve been thinking that as far as my writing. I came home, feeling pretty down. I don’t know why. I think it comes from the fact[…]
