How to Outline through Character Arcs

On Friday I touched on how I started outlining The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy to help me lay out the general narrative.

I’m pretty sure this style of outline is sort of an amalgam of various outlining techniques I’ve read about, so I’d like to share it with you all. Continue reading How to Outline through Character Arcs

Friday Publishing-Day: Coming Together

This has certainly been an interesting week, not least because I drove halfway across the country.

With my manuscript for WoEM in the hands of my book designer, I have been able to focus on other pieces of this larger puzzle. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Coming Together

Friday Publishing-Day: Brief Update

Welp, I definitely forgot today was Friday, so I will be brief.

This week has felt very full, but I think I’ve accomplished very little publishing-wise. Stress at work is the main cause of that.

Fortunately, my book design is under way. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Brief Update

The Trouble with World-Building… Twice

Man, I thought world-building was tough. As much as I love going into the details of a place and its people in my stories, even I must admit that it can be a lot of work.

But I had no idea just how difficult it could be to world-build for a second timeContinue reading The Trouble with World-Building… Twice

Haiku Sunday NaNo 2017 Edition – Name

“Name”

Is your connection

to your ancestors defined

only by your name?

I completely forgot to announce the NaNo 2017 edition of Haiku Sunday! Just as I’ve done for NaNo 2015 and NaNo 2016, my weekly haiku throughout this November will be based on themes from my NaNo project, The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy. Continue reading Haiku Sunday NaNo 2017 Edition – Name

I nearly forgot it was Friday. I suppose that’s what the holidays do to you.

Writing was slow once again, despite my time off from work earlier in the week — 3,600 for the week and 24,800 overall. But my weekly total is low mostly because I’ve been… distracted by other priorities the past two nights. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Busy with Business

Haiku Sunday NaNo 2016 Edition: Everstrong

“Everstrong”

Seeing from his Keep
the self-reliant Feldings.
Can he unite them?

Author’s Note: Emeril Everstrong is the first ever Falden of Everfeld. Most of the largest wards in Everfeld have supported Everstrong ever since he led the Felding militias to victory over the Redskael Clans at the Battle of Ever’s Edge, the decisive battle of the Second Redskael War. His quest is to unite the disparate Felding communities under one leader, but he has plenty of opposition. Can he hold the Felding wards together amidst internal rivalries and threats from outside Everfeld? If he wants to protect Everfeld, he may not have a choice.
