I am within a page or two of finishing up the new War Dog cupcake's first draft. It is fractional, and I feel like I should be writing to finish it even as I write this, but, eh. So it goes. I am not quite sure what I'm going to do with a title for… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Nearly done!
It is just, somehow, liberating to wind up in a situation where the words just flow. I'm not quite there on the current project, but it's closer than it's felt in months and months. So, wordcounts are high-ish, and morale's high-ish. The current project is indeed about a mangled War-Dog, and I have no idea… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Definitely working on the next cupcake.
Two weeks goes by fast, doesn't it? That's how long I've been working on putting together three pitch documents, which seems like it took longer than it should... but, then again, pitches are not prose. These specific ones required full plotting, which is one of those tasks that takes way more effort per word than… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Barking at the door.
Another week with comparatively little to report. I got some writing done on my novel, the Pirate's Beard, and had a bit of computer upheaval, and, OH MAN, IS DANGEROUS JADE LEGITIMATELY ON SALE NOW? YES IT IS. (According to the thing about the dates. The site will hopefully be updated soon.) Also someone reviewed… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Dangerous Jade for sale!
On our plate this week, we discover: The first review for Dangerous Jade, although it has spoilers. (You're safe if you've already read the first chapter's preview, however.) They had pretty nifty steam engines in 1750, however I will be branded a steampunk for including just one in my novel. I have finished off my… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Lazy List
This is a brief Workblog for the week. I got some work done on the Brocade Goat, I got some work done on the Troy/Jen stuff I mentioned, but mainly? Mainly this weekend is Further Confusion, and people are (apparently) buying my novella, Dangerous Jade, right this moment! (Well. ... Around now, anyway.) Terribly exciting.… Continue reading Workblog for the week: FC? Oooh! Buy my stuff!
After a slightly rocky start to the year, I find myself in the pleasant situation of being able to report that the muse has come along and inspired me to start work on something that may turn into a Troy/Jen novella or serial. It's a surprisingly significant whack of inspiration, too. The kind that most… Continue reading Workblog For The Week : Getting worked over by the muse.
(An excerpt from my erotic romance novella, Dangerous Jade!) Dangerous Jade by Malcolm Cross (First Chapter Sneak Preview) *** 1. - What Was Your Name?, or, The Olive Thing There it was, that electric thing. That eyes meeting across the room thing, that burning racetrack going from her eyes to the pit of her gut… Continue reading Dangerous Jade: First Chapter Preview
A happy holiday period to you all. This week has seen some noodling about with comic scripts on livestream, and also finally getting a toehold back in the treacherous climb toward writing the Pirate's Beard/Brocade Goat manuscript. (Which, amusingly, was a scene following the treacherous climb of one of the protagonists up a collossal hot… Continue reading Cheerblog for the holidays: Ho ho ho!
