It’s July 1st, which means it’s Canada Day where I am. We’re all celebrating the birth of our country up here. Lots of picnics, cottage visits and such things I’m sure, with fireworks to come this evening. Good times.
How am I celebrating? With words and story, of course. I suspect that there are zero surprised people in the audience on this one. Continue reading ‘Was That The Starter’s Pistol?’

Funny, you’d think I’d miss my mind more, especially since I don’t think it’s coming back this time.
Oh well. I can write without it, right? #JustSayYes
There’s a reason I say I’ve lost my mind. It’s not just the usual insanity, though I still have plenty of that, despite not having a mind anymore apparently. Continue reading ‘I Have Lost My Mind’

I’ve spent a lot of the last month or so since my previous post thinking about writing. Yes, I was doing that rather than writing, because I was still struggling. Every time I’ve thought I had this licked, I find out I’m wrong, so wrong, and back at square one.
This has not been fun, as you might imagine.

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. Too long. I’ve been writing a little, but not enough to have much to say. However, a couple of good friends have tagged me for the Writing Process blog hop that’s going around. I’m always touched when people ask about what I’m working on and how I work. I view it as a high compliment, so thank you.

I’ve mentioned on occasion that I’m a gamer, and some of the games I’ve played and enjoyed are the empire-building, strategy types. They scratch an itch for me, the urge to build something up and see how far and high I can take it.
Sometimes, writing scratches that same itch. I mean, in Fantasy you tend to build worlds for your characters, right? I haven’t gotten as exhaustive in my world-building as some authors I’ve known about, but there’s still been a lot even so. However, it’s often been high level because that’s how I’ve thought of it until now. And often it’s what I needed, but right now, I’m doing some and it’s a bit different from my usual stuff.

It’s been a while since I posted here. There are a number of reasons. I think I’m even going to share some of them with you guys, which means this is going to be a hard post to write, maybe even harder to hit publish on. I’m going to try anyway. Bear with me. This is going to be a long post. Continue reading ‘Struggles and Breakthroughs’
