Looking for New Projects

So I've been thinking for a while now that I should probably get into writing romances. I've already started falling into the abyss of romance books (seriously, there are so many on my Kindle right now...) and I do enjoy the stories for the most part. And I know that as a writer, it's one … Continue reading Looking for New Projects

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Actions Speak Louder Than Words

As I've been working on QUEST TO KARANTIRI more in preparation for my Patreon, as soon as I saw this topic, I knew that I needed to write to it. It doesn't matter that it was from the beginning of the month. I WANT IT NOW. In any event, this is Tarenthal and Carinth, after … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Actions Speak Louder Than Words

I Write Books to Conquer This World

So as a general rule, I've always considered that quality is worth more than quantity in the writing world. If you have a hundred books out but all of them tell the exact same story and are garbage, then I don't care that you might have fifty best-sellers. But take authors like Harper Lee, who … Continue reading I Write Books to Conquer This World

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Sword of Damocles

I've had the song of the same name from Rocky Horror stuck in my head ever since I saw the prompt. Now just to write something that isn't a boy toy in gold lamé hot pants. Again, this prompt is pulled from the ever-talented Lyn Thorne-Alder's Thimbleful Thursday posts, which are truly designed to save … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Sword of Damocles

Lessons in What Not to Say

As an indie author, I'm finding myself relying back on some of the earliest pleas I had as a writer: "Please leave a review if you liked the story!" This shows up constantly in fanfiction, because much like in traditional fiction, reviews can make or break an author. Archive of Our Own, a more recent … Continue reading Lessons in What Not to Say

The Trouble With Submissions

So I know I've touched on submissions before, and how one gets ideas for them. It's easy to surf around and say "oh hey, here are nine thousand places looking for stories that sound interesting; LET'S GO!" but it's less easy to actually write them. Now here's my usual problem. Length. I'm sure some of … Continue reading The Trouble With Submissions

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Turn Over a New Leaf/Hold Your Fire

These two were short, so I've smooshed them together into one mega-microfic. (*cough*) It follows my dearly beloved Tarenthal of the Karantiri stories, very early in his time in the Kalvarine woods. As always, check out Thimbleful Thursday, and all of Lyn's projects. Tarenthal stepped out into the sunlight, eyes closed, letting the rays wash … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Turn Over a New Leaf/Hold Your Fire
