Workblog for the week: Eat, Sleep, Write, FTL.

This has been one of those welcome weeks where the main thing I did all week was write. And write and write and write. To the point where it's slightly hard to recall what happened. I've been writing, reading trashy books, reading up on ridiculous warfare related items, and, as of yesterday, playing FTL. What… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Eat, Sleep, Write, FTL.

Workblog for the week: Definitely working on the next cupcake.

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.

Workblog for the week: Barking at the door.

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.

I feel like I'm a bit more than a quarter into my book. Which is an odd achievement. It is, at this moment, inclusive… Continue reading Workblog for the week: One more chapter down.

Workblog for the week: Worked this week.

So, after quite some time, I've managed to actually work for a whole week on my novel. I suspect this marks an official end to the sabbatical. We shall keep our fingers crossed. In the intervening time I have finished off another chapter of the Brocade Goat, so the sabbatical wasn't all laziness and non-productiveness,… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Worked this week.

Workblog for the week: What, am I a real author now or something?

Two huge, huge events this week. The first involved the arrival my first payment for Dangerous Jade - roughly fifty copies have been sold so far, which, you know, for a debut from a guy most people haven't heard of, that's pretty damn good. So, does that make me a 'real author'? How about being… Continue reading Workblog for the week: What, am I a real author now or something?
