Creativity Sessions: Finding a Character’s Heart

Last Friday, I touched on the changes that were beginning to manifest in the third draft of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.

As one of two leading protagonists in the novel, I knew that Jaed’s characterization was paramount to both a well-balanced story, and an enjoyable read. Achieving that has been easier said than done.

Friday Write-Day: Implementing An Editor’s Revisions

This week has flown by, and I honestly don’t know why. I guess work has kept me busy, and my night job is moving along.

Night job meaning my book. I’m now considering whether or not to open a separate bank account for our publishing imprint, so this officially feels like a job in the best kind of way. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Implementing An Editor’s Revisions

Numberbrag: 2017’s Statistical Ups and Downs

Overall, 2017 was a great statistical year for RSPC. For eight months out of the year, we averaged at least 20 Views per day. That’s awesome!

But there were some notable lows as well, especially compared to the stellar performance across most of the year. Continue reading Numberbrag: 2017’s Statistical Ups and Downs

Friday Write-Day: The Next Phase Begins

Welp, I forgot to upload my title card. I blame my goofy counterpart, Jessie, with whom I video chatted last night for 5 and a half hours…

Clearly we had a lot to talk about after a busy month+ for both of us.

Curse our intriguing and impassioned conversations/arguments!

Friday Write-Day: Preparing for the Next Step

This week’s ‘tween-holiday lull has been a welcome break for me. It’s allowed me to really focus on preparing for the next steps — in writing, at work, and in life.

Consider this my pre-New Year planning post. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Preparing for the Next Step

Friday Write-Day: Pre-Holiday Stress Time!

The holidays are usually somewhat stressful for me. Just making sure I’ve find appropriate gifts for people and can get to all of the family events is more than enough to think about.

Work has been stressful this week, largely because I was trying to wrap up a lot of things before being off for a few days.

But, I am off today, and thankfully, have some time to get shit done.

Marketing 2017 Wrap-Up

Well, the numbers are not officially in, because there are technically still 20 days left in 2017. But, I am savvy and realistic enough to know when to call a game.

Our marketing efforts this year were… lackluster, despite my big talk way back in January. I don’t need to dissect our numbers (or my budget) to find the reason why, however.

The main culprit: I didn’t publish my book this year. I think most would agree with me that this was a wise decision, but it has necessarily delayed my own marketing efforts.

Still, there are some key lessons I can derive from this non-campaign. But first, let’s dig into the numbers. Here were my original marketing goals for this year, focused mostly on growing our audience. Continue reading Marketing 2017 Wrap-Up

Friday Write-Day: Some Announcements that Have Little to Do with Writing!

This is going to be a weird update. I can’t even tell you what my word count for the week is, because I was preoccupied with other awesome things.

So… this End-of-NaNo update has very little to do with NaNo. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Some Announcements that Have Little to Do with Writing!

Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael

Many of the smaller regions or groups in Úr’Dan wield inordinate power over the subcontinent. We’ve already seen this with Driftport, the city out of which all Úr’Daní trade flows, and the Arrowhead, which serves as a necessary stopping point for trade flowing up and down Everwash.

Well, as promised, we’re going to look at yet another region that, while geographically and demographically small, holds enormous sway in Úr’Dan. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael
