Friday Write-Day: All the W.I.P.!

This has been a tough week, mainly due to stress at work. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite mastered compartmentalizing work stress from my home life, so I needed a break from computer-related endeavors.

In short, I didn’t write much this week.

I did, however, get myself a bit more organized for my upcoming works-in-progress. Note the plural there. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: All the W.I.P.!

Using History as a Story’s Backbone

Over the last few years, I’ve managed to cultivate a few writing practices which help me build my stories. While on an extended weekend vacation, I went back to an old gem and rediscovered its virtues: history.

And no, I don’t mean actually studying real history to tell my own stories, although I also enjoy that. I’m talking about writing history. Continue reading Using History as a Story’s Backbone

However, I think that was for the best, because I have a very special surprise to help you all step into this world. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Everfeld (with a bonus!)

Friday Published-Day: The Work Continues

This has been a pretty big week, if only symbolically.

I officially made The Warden of Everfeld: Memento available for pre-order on Kindle before both the Kindle and print versions are published on July 18.

That’s a pretty big deal for me, anyway.

Other than that, I’ve done a lot of mental gear-turning over what comes next, both before WoEM is released to the world and after it’s out.

Friday Publishing-Day: Notes over Greenland

Guess who’s back in the US?!?!

In case you haven’t seen the haiku I’ve been posting this week (with some very obvious riddles), the wife and I were in England for a wedding and some good ole R+R in London.

I managed to get some sweet pics of what I assume is Greenland on our flight from Reykjavik to Baltimore. I’ve seen plenty of documentary footage of the arctic, but flying directly over it with such a clear view of the terrain felt like I’d been transported to another world.
