A Pointless Fear

I started writing the first draft* of a fantasy standalone novel called BLOOD PRICE last week. I'm pretty excited about it's progress, considering I have 20,000 solid words down that, once upon a time, I thought were complete rubbish, and still over two months to get the rest of the words written, so I'm pretty… Continue reading A Pointless Fear

And today, I surpassed 40,000 words. Meaning I'm writing, on average, 10,000… Continue reading I’m Psyched

Granted, it's going pretty well, considering I've written more in this book than I did the last two books I attempted to write (I made it to roughly 50 pages each before I tabled both of them for other projects, whereas… Continue reading Permission To Be Shit

Finally: A Writing Update

I started writing a new book last week. I was both really excited and really nervous about it. Excited because working on the outline for the novel helped me figure out a lot of details and really understand the story that I want to tell, not to mention the characters who are going to be… Continue reading Finally: A Writing Update
