What I’m (Re)Watching Weekend Note

One Tree Hill 1×02 – ‘The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’

It’s been about a decade since I first watched One Tree Hill. The main characters ranged from shallow donkeys to deep, moral artists, you know, once you looked past their knee-jerk reactions to all the crazy drama. The art may have varied, but… integrity was at the heart – in their hearts and in their actions. They faltered and fell, and then, rose up from the ashes of their mistakes. I’m trying to do the same. The following quote struck a chord with me and I thought to share it with you folks: Continue reading What I’m (Re)Watching Weekend Note

Friday Actual Write-Day

Life has been busy since we bought our house. Most of my weekends and spare evenings have been spent sanding, painting, talking with repair pros, or demolishing moldy cabinets in the cellar.

Fortunately, real progress is being made on our house, and we’re on our way to moving in in the next month or so. I’ll post some photos soon. Continue reading Friday Actual Write-Day

GUEST POST: Writing for Yourself vs Writing for an Editor, by Steven D’Adamo

Sci-fi author Luther M Siler let me write a guest post for his website, which is pretty awesome. Have a look-see and check out his books. I’d be happy to have a fraction of the following he does. (Maybe just a slightly bigger fraction than currently. )

Thank you Luther!

For Whom Do You Write? (Hint: it always changes!)

Most of us say that we only write for ourselves, that it doesn’t matter how the outside world perceives our stories because we poured our hearts…

Chester Bennington and a Cheap-Feeling Writing Update

I was 12 when Hybrid Theory came out, and I remember listening to it on my walkman in my room until I knew all of the words to every song. I fondly remember it as the soundtrack to my life ages 12-13.

I’m not going to write a post about Chester Bennington. Jessie pretty well covered my own feelings on this news yesterday.

RIP Chester Bennington Continue reading Chester Bennington and a Cheap-Feeling Writing Update

And My New Favorite German Word is… Fledermaus!

I miss studying language. I took French in middle/high school, German in college, and Arabic in college/grad school. The roots and origins of words has always fascinated me, and I will still look up words that catch my fancy. Continue reading And My New Favorite German Word is… Fledermaus!

Remember to Write What You Love and Love What You Write

I’ve been a little too focused on just writing the last few weeks. I forgot for a moment that I was supposed to enjoy the process. The strict deadlines I had imposed on my word counts and finish dates were weighing down the writing itself.

It took an off-hand reminder from the lovely Jessie to remember: love what you write, and write what you love. Continue reading Remember to Write What You Love and Love What You Write

Exploring Úr’Dan: Feldings and Uplanders

In honor of the premier of Planet Earth II back in March, I wrote a post about the northern region of my fantasy world, Úr’Dan. In that post, I wrote about the Hundred Teeth mountain range and the Uplands that make up the northern portion of this subcontinent.

Planet Earth II was fantastic, by the way. If you have not watched it, you’re missing out on some beautiful cinematography and amazing animals.

Anyway, I thought I would continue my “Exploring Úr’Dan” series by discussing the people who actually live in the Uplands, collectively known as Uplanders. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Feldings and Uplanders
