Writing Partner: Working on a Character

After a couple of weeks off, I’m back to work. This time, on a pair of outlines. I have one for the book I want to write for NaNoWriMo and another for the one I’m working on in the meantime. Beyond basic plotting I also have to wrap my mind around a bunch of new characters. For a job like this, I’ll need the help of someone who is a real character themselves. And with that in mind… look at this abomination! 

Writing Partner: Letting Go

I’m going to try and make this update as brief as possible. To linger would be sending a mixed message. I’m nearly done with my book. Still working on the title, but I digress. If I focus and keep at it, I will be sending it out to my first round of beta readers thisContinue reading “Writing Partner: Letting Go”

Writing Partner: A Milestone

                It’s going to be a short blog today. I’ve just spent the last nine hours writing, so I’d like to look away from a screen soon. However, I’m thrilled with my progress and wanted to share.                 I just finished (hopefully) the last bit of net new content for my novel. So now allContinue reading “Writing Partner: A Milestone”

I prefer to live at about 18 degrees Celsius, when things approach 40 I’m having a very bad time. It has been challengingContinue reading “Writing Through a Heatwave”

Mazes: A Weekend Double-Feature

Hello all, It’s been a while since my last post. January was another month where life got in the way of writing. I’m thankful I have stable employment, especially during such a trying time. Still, over the last month, it took a bit more out of me than usual. Truth be told, I haven’t hadContinue reading “Mazes: A Weekend Double-Feature”

Writing Partner: Working With a Group, Part 2

As I discussed in my last post I took a break from my book to write a new short story. It was a weird one and I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Well, I finished! It’s also turned out quite well. What’s more surprising, is that this project’s writing partners turned out pretty nicely in their own right.

Xander of the Broken Antler

I recently took part in a Christmas themed one-off D&D session. We did it over Zoom, but it was still great to roll some dice again. I didn’t use my normal random number character building methods for this character, but I still think it’s pretty neat.
