Wow. Where to start? Not from the beginning. That takes too long. This weekend was the 24th Pikes Peak Writers Conference. It went fantastic! I met loads of cool people. I made oodles of new friends. I attended quite a few excellent workshops. I met with editors, agents, authors, friends [...]

In my last update I mentioned the martial arts program, so I wanted to follow-up on that. After a hard workout last Tuesday, I was left barely able to move my right arm and I had limited motion in my left arm. Fortunately, I was able to get into my [...]

Warmistress — First Round of Edits Finished

2013-02-17T14:02:22-07:00February 17th, 2013|Warmistress|

I just finished the first round of edits on Warmistress. Does this mean the novel is done? Not by a long shot! I'm going to take a week or two break from the novel to clear my head. Then I'll print the entire thing, three-hole punch it, and throw it [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Warmistress First Draft Complete

2013-01-01T03:38:37-07:00January 1st, 2013|Warmistress|

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 [...]

2011-11-01T17:02:10-06:00November 1st, 2011|NaNoWriMo, Warmistress|

It's already nearing the end of the work day here in Colorado, and I've just now decided that I'm going to jump in and do NaNoWriMo this year. I've been pondering this for about week, and I've decided that the almost twenty thousand words of Warmistress just aren't shaping up [...]

Warmistress Under Way!

2011-08-06T23:47:46-06:00August 6th, 2011|Warmistress|

I started writing Warmistress tonight while sitting at a Village Inn, sipping coffee and eating yummy cherry pie. The start of the book was delayed by a few hours as I had a few notes that I had forgotten about that read along the lines of, "Research medieval military ranks/organizations." [...]

Warmistress Plotting Done

2011-07-07T17:29:29-06:00July 7th, 2011|Warmistress|

I've finished plotting the sequel to Warmaiden, which is entitled Warmistress. I finished the plotting a few weeks ago, but have yet to start writing the book. I've had a few other writing projects come up in recent weeks, so I'm very busy with those. Things are settling down nicely, [...]
