After nailing another chapter down this week, and keeping things rolling, I'm taking a few days break with other projects, just to keep every pot on my stove merrily boilling away. 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.
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.
So, apparently, making notes is helpful. How do I know this? I have gone so far as to add 'made notes' to my work records two days in a row. And it has been helpful. What my technique seems to be, and it's rather astonishing to me that I am developing a technique, is to… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Notable.
So, for the first time in awhile, I'm more or less edging back onto my schedule, and have been working on my novel all week. Which, let me say, makes me ridiculously happy, even if progress is slow. Sometimes writer's block is something you need to edge out of your way bit by bit, rather… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Solid.
Okay. Awards, plague, and censorship are a lot to get through. Let's start on the easy stuff, how my work's been going this week. Still have very little faith in myself, but the faith of others has done a bang-up job of keeping me afloat. And, more to the point, towards a reasonable wordcount this… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Awards! Plague! Censorship!
Very little to report this week. There is some potentially very fun stuff on the horizon, although that can't be spoken of just yet, but it does involve thylacines. Also it's been snowing this week in London - very rare event, all things taken into inclusion, and so I've been staring at the snow a… Continue reading Workblog for the week: The long and short of it.
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!
This year I have achieved the following: I have started, written, editted, finished, and submitted for consideration, five short stories and one comic script. (The short stories have been bouncing around various markets all year, too! And some extremely rewarding positive noises/near misses, but no sales.) I have started, written, editted, finished, and submitted for… Continue reading Workblog for the year: 2011
