Tonight I hit a pretty major and exciting milestone. I finished the first draft of the 3rd Orryn Novella! I decided that I wanted to finish it, mess of a draft that it is, before NaNoWriMo so I wrote the last scene or two, about 1.5k words, tonight. The draft is going to need a lot of work on the rewrite. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Pre-NaNo Triumph!
That’s right, lovelies: I have officially picked a NaNoWriMo project. Yay! I will be working on a somewhat dark fantasy, hopefully action-filled romance in a sort of steampunk-ish setting. I have a very firm grasp on the main characters, the superficial structure of the plot and the themes that will generally be dealt with, but also a fair bit left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – The Author Hath Chosen!
My goodness, this past week! Lovelies, I have not been managing my time well, especially with regard to my reading for uni. This weekend I was so incredibly swamped with reading and assignments and honestly, none of it was a big deal on its own. The problem was I let it all clump up for me at the end of the week. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh Hey Monday!
Disclaimer: this post contains mild productivity-bragging. If you’re a writer and feeling bad about your level of productivity: don’t! You are doing your best! I am super lucky that right now my health bar is at full and my calendar is empty, which let’s me focus a ton of time on this. I brag on only because my productivity makes Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Personal Record(?)!
Wow. I am one week back into my blogging and already I am back to my old habit of, at intervals, pretending that it’s Monday on Tuesday. Well, I had a good reason this time because last night when I remembered that it was Monday, I didn’t have much energy left with which to do things, and I was left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to a Time-Honored Tradition (no, 2!)
Tonight I begun the rewrite of Going Home that I mentioned here on the blog a few weeks ago. As such, I thought tonight would be a good time to tell you a bit more about the most significant change I’ll be making to the books and the reasoning behind it. I’m talking, of course, about the removal of magic from the Continue reading Orryn Reborn – On Removing Magic
Tonight I wanna tell you about a hard, writing-related decision I recently made. I actually made it a few weeks ago, but I needed a bit of time to process before announcing it publically. To basic gist is this: I will be re-editing and rereleasing both books in my Orryn Novella series, Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag. There will be some significant, Continue reading Orryn Reborn – The What and the When
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been brainstorming a bit about the future of the Orryn series lately and I have to tell you… at this point I am virtually swimming in ideas. It seems I can barely turn around without coming up with some new aspect I want to explore, a new theme or incident, a new perspective or reaction from one Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – So many ideas!
Do you ever have those nights when you’re just gonna watch one episode of a show and it turns out to be a double-length episode and then suddenly it’s nearly 1 a.m. and your WordPress app keeps crashing and your boyfriend’s killing orcs or something on the computer so you put off blogging until the next day? No? Well, that’s Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Blurbstorming!
This weekend, about 6 months and 10 days after the release of Going Home, its sequel Dress Rehearsal Rag hit the Kindle Store and Smashwords. Yay! Normally I’d do a separate post about news as big as this, but since it’s Monday, and since I’ve already told most people about it view Twitter, Facebook and my newsletter (which you, as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dress Rehearsal Rag is out! And onwards.
