Onesong – Chapter 46

June 6, 2018

In this next section, you’ll see Ellonia talking about things that she has no knowledge about. I know that at some point Rivic and Ellonia need to have an important conversation to set up for this chapter, but I’m not sure where. Yes, it should have happened in the last chapter, but I really liked the idea of leaving it with a closed door love scene. I couldn’t interrupt. Believe me, I tried.

Yeah, the characters were all like, “Let’s not waste any more time,” and I’m all trying to have Rivic interrupt and say, “But in not wasting any more time, I need to have a serious conversation with you about this black dragon living down below Gohaldinest. Yeah, she’s my dragon mother and I need to take you down to see her.” He wouldn’t do it. Dang characters.

No, he’s right. I backed off.

I know that there is another scene coming, one that will give them more time together before this scene. It just hasn’t revealed itself to me. I’m excited to write it though; I have a cloud of what it will be in the back of my mind, so I have a small glimpse of it already.

Let’s get to this week’s chapter.

Onesong – Chapter 45

May 30, 2018

Keeping it short and sweet this week.

I thought about adding the next chapter after this one to the story, but the ending of the first part really needs a good break, so I left it here. It might end up being in the end of the previous chapter since it’s not very long at all.

I have divided the book and am beginning my review of the Tangled Magic section of it. I’ll have to re-imagine the ending a bit because it’s not solid right now, but it will all sort itself out. I trust the process. And I know it will be spectacular.

Thank you to readers who have finished Prince of the Ruined Land and excitedly wrote to me to find out if I was going to have the 5th Sacred Knight out soon (The Missing Thread) or these books in the Onesong series. Yes, Onesong is up next. I feel that I needed this part of the story first. The Missing Thread is my current Frankenstein’s monster. Well, sort of. It’s more like pieces and parts lying all around my lab on shelves waiting for me to return to them.

I have wondered if Steigan’s uncertainty is what is keeping me from writing the scene where Keteria wakes up. This is my biggest unknown at the moment. It’s not like I haven’t written the scene where she wakes up; I’ve actually drafted 4 different versions of it, then threw them all out because they aren’t right. Steigan is so worried about her and what’s going to happen, that I now have the nervous jitters about it.  Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 44

May 23, 2018

Well, my friends, we are nearing the end. And this is a chapter I know many of you have been waiting for. The moment. (No, no spoilers in the introduction).

I can’t believe I’ve been running this for nearly a year now.

Thank you to everyone who has been with me since the beginning and to those who have jumped on board. I certainly hope you’ve been enjoying it. I think there are about 5 more chapters left after this one. So let’s finish the fight, shall we?

Onesong – Chapter 43

May 16, 2018

This chapter has a couple of issues. First is a bad transition — I never mentioned that Rivic leaves Gohaldinest to go back to his tribe. I felt as if I couldn’t write the transition scene now because I probably already have something written anyway which just needs a better place. So I’m leaving that.

Second is that this chapter is one that will get split into two later because it’s information heavy.

In the first part, Rivic and Alityka are talking about the workings of the magical markers on the bloodwave and what it means. Later on, after Alityka shows Rivic the absorption stones (little stone pieces of gargaxes which can temporarily take away magic, for those of you who haven’t read the Sacred Knight series), they speak more specifically about how removing a thread from the bloodwave can happen. It contradicts some of what was said earlier. They need some space separating them to invest time for Alityka to have gained more knowledge.

For the moment, I’m leaving the whole chapter as it is – talking heads and all — just because throwing a novel like this out there each week doesn’t allow me to go back and correct things in the timeline as I discover them. You really don’t want me messing around with your memories in the way that would take. Trust me. This way is much better.

Well, now I’ve forewarned you about this chapter. Let’s get to it.

Onesong – Chapter 42

May 9, 2018

The scenes you are about to get today, there are two of them, are not completely fleshed out. I feel there is more coming. It’s also another section which I’m not sure belongs right here.

And, after watching Infinity Wars this last weekend, I wonder if what I’m setting up in the first scene is even a good idea or not. It might lead to an overpowered character that my current characters have no hope of defeating. Yeah, I suspect that before these scenes become official in print, they will change greatly. But you get to see the original acorn of the idea.

Okay, let’s get onto it.

Onesong – Chapter 41

May 2, 2018

There is part of this chapter that I’m unsure about. I feel that it needs to happen, because Rivic gets information he needs, but it just feels a little out of place. I think I need to add a scene or two earlier. I’ve talked about placeholders in the story, usually put there unintentionally by me until I figure out what I’m really going to place there and sometimes not. But as I recall, I have a placeholder which I had already fleshed out once, but it still feels a little lacking to me — it might be because I need to add a visit to the tea shop when Nyree is showing Rivic around Gohaldinest (remember that? Forever ago, huh?)

For the second time, I have “finished” writing this story. At least until yesterday when I was thinking that I still have several scenes to finish in addition to the list I already had made. I use to think that Sacred Knight was the never-ending story. I’m beginning to think it’s really Onesong. (grin)

But I did have to get back to writing Dragons of Wellsdeep while Onesong was in a cooling and reflection period. Something happened in Dragons that I realized I needed to put into Onesong. I have absolutely no idea what it was as I’m writing this, but I know its safe within Dragons.

We’re also getting closer to a new cover for Onesong (or the 1st book in the series), but more on that later.

Okay, let’s get onto it.
