Writing has been slow again for me this week. I’ve written a total of 4,400 words for NaNo — a rather pitiful showing considering my initial goal was 30,000. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Recalibrating NaNo Goals
I’ve managed to fall into a monthly rhythm with this series without even trying. However, I may do an extra one this month in honor of NaNo.
For today’s journey, I’d like to take you to a small region that wields significant influence in the Uplands — some might even say disproportionate influence. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: The Arrowhead
Well, well, well, nine days through NaNo and look where we are!
Can you guess? Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Family Writing Night!
I can’t keep track of October. Turns out, it’s almost over!
That means it’s almost NaNo time! I have done zero prep work for National Novel Writing Month this year. But I’m not quite pantsing either. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: I Almost Forgot About NaNo!
I found a cover designer! After sifting through over 50 applications via Upwork, I’ve hired a cover designer I’m really excited about. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: The Cover is Coming!
I’ve spent the last several installments of this series talking about the various peoples who inhabit Úr’Dan. Now I think it’s time to start giving bits of the history of this subcontinent.

I just completed writing Manuscript: Beta of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento. Like, literally ten seconds ago. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Finished*… Again!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a real post. At least it feel that way to me. I thought providing a bit more world-building info would be a nice way to ease myself back into a more regular writing/blogging routine.
As I discussed in the last installment of this series, the peoples living in the southern half of Úr’Dan are far more diverse than their neighbors to the north. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Bargers and Southerners
In my first three posts in this series, I discussed the general aspects of my world-building, such as the language and the mythology. Then, I delved a little bit deeper into the geography and peoples of the northern half of Úr’Dan, providing some insight into the the people and landscapes seen in The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.
Now, I think it’s time we visit the southern half of Úr’Dan. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: The Southern Half
