Right now, I’m in the middle of purging a whole plot line from The Winter Solist. Have to, really. Initially, I thought it was going to be because I needed to expand the story and plot some more…but, then I realized something. With the fact that I’ve expanded the book series from eight books to … Continue reading The Wonder Of Writing
Just to explain where I’ve been so far… Before I published Solist At Large, I was (at a rough estimate) about a quarter of the way through The Winter Solist, and I had the major plot beats going on. Then…then, I published Solist At Large, and in the glow of “I’m done!“, I realized that … Continue reading The Process Of Major Revision Work
After celebrating my birthday this week and managing to get…sixty to sixty-five percent of what I wanted from this year, I got back to work on The Winter Solist. Right now, I’m de-cluttering the plot of the book in a way that Marie Kondo would be very proud of. Before I had over-done the plot … Continue reading Book Writing Information For This Week
We just had another fire outbreak nearby. It’s about one to four zones on the East side of the freeway, depending upon how you measure it. Other than orange sunlight, ash, and embers, we’re not in any trouble. Yet. There’s a contingency for this. We do have a plan for this, and lots of practice … Continue reading Every Time You Think…
Where I wish I was? Nice hotel room, lovely ladies of consenting age, and peace and quiet for a weekend, to celebrate my upcoming birthday. Where I’ve actually been? At home, writing. Getting through the plot-detangling for The Winter Solist and starting to write around the holes I made. Dealing with the switch over of … Continue reading So, Where Have I Been?
Just to remind everyone, Solist At Large is currently out for sale. And, looking back from the perspective of “I can’t really do anything about it,” it’s now hitting me that I tried to squeeze two books-maybe three-into one. I have plot points that I will not use immediately, story bits that I could have … Continue reading Yep, I Did Too Much
I even have my own book on Amazon and everything! Solist At Large is currently up and running on Amazon, I’ve gotten it written and finished and everything else done, and now I have to write the next book in the series, The Winter Solist. This is going to be a good time all around, … Continue reading I Am Now A Published Author
There’s a point of no return on some projects. Where you have hit the button and you’re committed. I just hit that point today, for KDP. Solist At Large is in the KDP publication pipeline, so sometime by Monday or Tuesday, I’ll be wondering if I’ve done something right or wrong or something to that … Continue reading The Point Of No Return
One of my biggest issues is my work environment for writing. It’s not so much bad as irritating and I know this irritation makes me not happy and it’s harder to write. The big thing is ambient noise-namely The Parents habit of watching CNN, daytime talk shows, and similar things at “ear bleed” levels. So, … Continue reading Scary, Spooky Quiet
Well, I downloaded the KDP Create tool, and starting to play with it tonight. I’ll work on it more tomorrow, but I’ve gotten most of the organization of the book done and I’m going to work on it more during the next few days. Still on track-fingers crossed-for a Saturday upload and a Monday/Tuesday release. … Continue reading Getting Closer To The Gate
