A short update this time: I'm still doing edits on Warmistress. I'm going through chapters seven and eight right now. I might finish those off tomorrow night and move on to the next segment of the work. I had hoped to be done with edits before the end of the [...]

From time to time, my muse rears her head and talks to me. I’ve managed to capture some of these conversations and am sharing them with you. I will warn you that my muse is a potty-mouth. I have no control over what she tells me. Sorry. Muse: What do [...]

I'm hip-deep in edits on Warmistress right now. I'm done with chapters one through four. I'm busy polishing chapters five and six right now. I have about four more passes to go before I'm done with those chapters. I'm not sure what the next segment is, though. I haven't looked [...]

As most of you may know by now, I'm the new vice president of the Pikes Peak Writers. This has been in the works for a little over a month, which is one of the reasons I chose to not run again as president of the CSFWG. Things went as [...]

Fare Thee Well, CSFWG

2013-01-13T02:13:55-06:00January 13th, 2013|CSFWG|Comments Off on Fare Thee Well, CSFWG

Yesterday morning the annual elections for the Colorado Springs Fiction Writers Group were held. Until that time, I'd been a volunteer/leader of the organization for five years. The first year was as Saturday Officer (called Saturday VP at the time), and the past four years was as president of the [...]

I'm not doing much "writing" these days, but I'm doing a ton of editing on Warmistress. I'm going through the feedback given to me by my critique group. I've gone through chapters 1-4 a few times already and fix/polished quite a few things. I'd say I'm roughly one-third the way through [...]

Here it is, the start of a new year. 2013 comes in with a bang as 2012 fades into the shadows of history. It's not time for a new project for me, though. It's time for the next phase in my current project. Warmistress (book #2 of the trilogy) is [...]

Warmistress First Draft Complete

2013-01-01T03:38:37-06:00January 1st, 2013|Warmistress|Comments Off on Warmistress First Draft Complete

The first draft of Warmistress is now complete. It weighs in at slightly under 104,000 words. My target is still 120k, but a more realistic number might be 115k. Now it's time to kick into edit mode and fill in those blanks I skimped on in an effort to get [...]
