It feels a little strange to be sitting between projects right now. It feels like I'm mentally tagging along for the ride and waiting to see where I go. I've spent the last few days since finishing the manuscript for Palladium focused on rounding out Sword and Shield (Sacred Knight book 6). When I was … Continue reading Tagging along for the ride
I had ground to a halt on Palladium shortly before working on the short story I had to get done for my class last week. So, I very much welcomed the break from Cirvel's novel in order to work on something else. In working on it yesterday, I really felt like I was just spinning … Continue reading Redrafted chapter
Some while back, I had two posts about a painting I was working on. I finally got back to that painting. Find post 1 here. Find post 2 here. So this is where I ended last time: When I looked at it today, I felt like I'd lost the depth in the piece. Now I … Continue reading Let’s see what happens – Day 3
Last week was an interesting one. On many levels. Firstly, I signed up for lifetime access to a bunch of learning materials for writers.

Our world burns while humanity fights against itself. Are we idiots or what?
After mentioning Cirvel in my blog earlier this week, someone -- not naming names here *cough* "Loki" *cough* -- got a little jealous.

So let's start … Continue reading Let’s talk about Loki
Did you know that Rivic's story, Tangled Magic, almost didn't happen? As I was working on the first three books of the Sacred Knight series and thinking about Alityka's part, I started seeing scenes with Rivic and Alityka. I even wrote several of these scenes down. All were from Alityka's point of view. Then in … Continue reading How Rivic’s story almost wasn’t
Ah, yes... in the post of my weekly chapter last Friday, I did mention that I would talk about why I'd been absent. Look at how well I dodged that! Hehehehe! Okay, well, if you figured from the not so discrete announcement, I've been busy getting Tangled Magic up. I had so wanted to let … Continue reading Tangled Magic
Who is this missing character? Do you know who it is?
I feel like I've spent weeks working on the plot design for five different novels. Oh, wait! I have. One of many of my whiteboards - blurred to prevent spoilers So the whiteboard above is just one of many that I used to help piece this story together. This board is actually directly tied to … Continue reading Palladium – Chapter 38
