April Statistics

I wrote 37,322 words in April.  That’s an improvement of more than 5,000 over March. I cut down on the inconsistency, with only three days where I wrote less than a thousand words.  With the new and “improved” work schedule, I’m writing from a place where this is the only time I’m going to get.

Point of View Issue

So, I was writing a scene from the Lepterian’s point of view–an event that he is remembering–and I ran into an interesting Point of View problem. The scene is supposed to be locked into a tight third-person limited. The problem is that every time he refers to himself as “The Lepterian” the scene pops right back

March Statistics

Could be Valentine’s Day.  Could be Fifty Shades of Grey. Could be the relationships I’ve picked to explore in my own work… but I’m fixated on sex and culture, right now.  That’s

January Statistics

I wrote 31,401 words in January.  I finished up the write-in-other-genres experiment, that is a science-fiction novel.  And I got back into my own genre with the idea that’s been percolating for the last couple of months.  There’s a murder.  And a fire.  And I’m absolutely falling in love with the dynamic between my two
