Onesong – Chapter 29

January 31, 2018

Coming out of my creative procrastination on this story, I am seeing more and more things that I need to put into the story.  It is currently over 111,000 words long. To Birth a Destiny (#3 of the Sacred Knight series and so far the longest in the series) is over 96,000 words long. 75,000-100,000 feels like a good length to me for fantasy novels. So, if I get this up to around 150,000 words (which it might very well do), I’m going to split it into two novels.

Of course, you’ll get as much of it here as I possibly can do. There will have to be some cycling back in the earlier sections, so the books will be slightly different than what you’ve read here. Read the rest of this entry »

Onesong – Chapter 27

January 17, 2018

This is going to be a short chapter this week. Very short. I’m still piecing Onesong together and haven’t really been working on it the last couple of weeks. My brain has been possessed by my other idea as well as those edits for Prince of the Ruined Land. Yeah, I do want to get that out soon! I’m sure everyone would love to quit hearing me talk about it so they can be reading it.

There might also be some creative procrastination going on with Onesong. Every now and then I have to put a story aside so that I can figure it out. You wanted to come along on this adventure with me, so here you are, rowing in the same boat I am. (grin)

But first, a special announcement. Click the image to learn more. (Don’t worry, another tab will open so you won’t forget to come back and read Onesong.)

Onesong – Chapter 26

January 10, 2018

I feel like I’ve been talking too much already this week. I do have to admit that I feel a little better after my online “journal-ing” on Monday. I still won’t say that I completely understand what’s going on in my head (I think that’s impossible), but maybe I am one step closer.

Since I’ve already been blathering on this week, let’s get to the story.

Onesong – Chapter 24

December 27, 2017

You might recall me saying last week that this was part of a new section that I’d added to the book after I realized that I’d need this scene in order to set up another scene I also needed.

Fleshing a story out can be fabulous fun. It can also be frustrating. I once read that it was easier to get things down than to think things up. I have to agree. When I’m focused on trying to think things up and make sure it’s all logical, that’s when it gets hard. When I focus on getting all these ideas down, then I start to see the connections that need to be made and things become easier.

Funny, huh?

Onesong – Chapter 23

December 20, 2017

Right now in my story, this chapter and the next are actually one chapter, but it’s very long and I’m not certain that the position in the story will hold. Because I might rearrange the second part of this chapter to a different spot in the story, I decided to make them separate here.

Now, this first part of the chapter has been part of the story, but the second part (what you will see next week) is new. I realized I needed to add it in when I discovered another scene that I’d need in the story. Chain reaction. So, if you’ve been reading my progress blogs and listened to me talking about dictating, well, the section you’ll see next week is from my dictation sessions.

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 23 is available for 1 week only! Unless you subscribe to Patreon at the $5 per month level where you can get additional access. If not, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Progress – December 18, 2017

December 18, 2017

I have felt cold all week. It’s like I’ve been put into hibernation mode so that I can stay in one place and stay warm. The inversion we had nearly all week long certainly wasn’t helping.

With it being cold, my writing office is closed off to help the rest of the house stay warmer. When it gets this cold, it’s best to close that section off. I could have probably opened it back up this weekend as it got warmer, but I decided not to for now. Once it warms up out of the 20’s, then I can get back to in it. Until then, I’ve got my chair (my Christmas present to myself last year when it got cold and I wanted to continue writing) in the living room. I don’t get as much done with the distractions (such as the video games playing and me watching them instead of keeping my fingers moving over the keys). But, I have to be warm, so it’s a sacrifice I must make. I just don’t handle being cold. Someday, central heating will be a thing in my life. (grin) Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 22

December 13, 2017

The story is experiencing growing pains. I thought I’d show you where the chapters are at right now.

List of scenes - no longer chapters

Yes, this is the typical experience of me writing a story. There are some major changes ahead. I don’t know how much longer I can hold her together. (sheepish grin). I’m doing what I can.

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 22 is available for 1 week only! Unless you subscribe to Patreon at the $5 per month level where you can get additional access. If not, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!
