I am at around 32k Nano writing, the novel is around 68k so far. And it is getting to the conclusion section. Should be about 90k when done, rough draft. Real rough when I do nano. Tend to be skimpy on details. So have to add all that later. Not sure, but I might finish…… Continue reading Rift World: My nano novel is finishing up

Thoughts the sin. When the storm rolled in When the thunder hit I’m…… Continue reading Poem: The line
I am currently at 16, 988 Description It is actually working out quite well for a rough draft. The main issue is keeping the tone of this character. I am used to rather lighter characters, but she is… not. And her baggage has baggage. I am currently procrastinating on a significant scene. This nano…… Continue reading Rift world: NaNoWriMo novel
Almost time for NaNoWriMo: Novel writing month in November. Writing is all about a soul yearning for a reality that doesn’t exist. It seems to me. And those realities have a certain pull to them over our own. Such a pull we have to write them down. Soul Yearnings My soul haunts a place, It…… Continue reading Soul yearning
Went on a little holiday in Banff along with about a 1000 other tourists since the park passes are free for Canada’s 150. So it was busy indeed. Nevertheless we enjoyed ourselves. Usually when we travel Alberta we hit Jasper. So Banff was new to us. Still have a preference for Jasper though. We checked…… Continue reading Vacation: Banff
I am the shyest writer around. I love to write. I love to have people read what I write as long as I have no idea who they are and they are far away from me. And I never communicate with them face-to-face. Because that is why I am a writer and not a singer.…… Continue reading The shyest writer around
My Fiverr profile. When I chose to try out Fiverr it was in fact because I have used it before for visual design. This is the cover for a novel I am working on that a Fiverr designer came up with for me: This is before I went to my pen name in fiction, of…… Continue reading My Fiverr experience
Word to the wise when writing for content sites, they run through copyscape. Which they should, of course. This is clearly important. So, yes, do that. But, here is a tidbit you might not know and I just found out, your sources may be flagged. I wrote an article and obviously inline linked my sources…… Continue reading Copyscape… that was a title, man
I have joined Fivver and my experience with them has been quite interesting. I enjoy the projects I have to work on. I have been getting good reviews, so far, knock on wood and all. I think it is a great approach for a writer like myself to put myself out there. So I thought,…… Continue reading Content sites for writers
Or that is what I feel like freelance writing lately. I feel like I am absorbing so much knowledge on so many different areas. It is fascinating. Someday soon I am going to have some really odd conversations from all these random facts I have been deep diving on. What I read tends to stick…… Continue reading I know all!
If you are an extrovert, you are lucky, in the sense that the world thinks extroverts are where it is at. You can socialize well, do business well, work well in public environments, have fewer issues with public speaking and so many other traits. And introverts are not extroverts. “If extroverts are assertive and enthusiastic…… Continue reading Rock your introverted self
After my previous post, you might gather a slight indication I am introverted. I am actually quite introverted but years of customer service experience has helped me develop my chit chat with people. One thing I didn’t mention is that I am very modest. Very shy about my accomplishments. I was at my friend’s house…… Continue reading So… what is that story about?
Written words, yes. Love writing. Verbally? Really depends. More awkward than anything would be what I would say. Introvert: I write better than I speak “We innies tend to write better than we speak. Words pour out effortlessly onto the page (or the computer screen nowadays). But in conversation, it can often feel like there’s…… Continue reading Writing vs speaking
Yep, another Valentine’s day is upon us. I’m not much for it, to be honest. Over commercialized. But my spouse is sweet and sentimental. He got me chocolates, candy, a dozen roses (some were white with blue tips, blue being my favorite color) and little monkey stuffy and a balloon. And he had some heart…… Continue reading Valentine’s Day… again?

I have this novel where tragedy has struck. Death. Someone has to die. Not always. Not every kind of book. But it is my rule for fantasy. Someone has to die. When chaos erupts… people die. So death has happened. Should I end it at death, that is the question? The novel has built up…… Continue reading Tragic ending or just tragic pit stop?
Yes, that headline should be common to every writer. Especially us insomniacs who think about endless things, passing the time while waiting for the elusive Sandman. The man is a bit of a slacker really. Usually, we are struck with brilliance like a bolt from the GODs. Where did this even come from? It is…… Continue reading Brilliant idea strikes at sleepy time
