Today’s Office. 30 January 2018. Watching a movie! It’s for research, I swear! Got to the gym today (about 4:30am), accomplished lots of errand stuff, and now taking some notes on a plot issue I’m facing in the third Devils of Kharashan book. I love y’all. Have an awesome day! — R.
Today’s Office. 28 December 2017. Fusing two plotlines into one cohesive novel structure! It’s coming along very nicely. Also, I’m eating a gigantic plum! 😀 I love you all. — R.
Today’s Office. 27 December 2017. We’re back in Florida! I nearly passed out giving plasma today. Also, we’re on a smoothie cleanse. I love you all! Sorry I had to be so quick. — R.
Today’s Office. 20 December 2017. “Devils of Kharashan” is now deep into plotting territory. I’ve taken a suggestion from some greats and identified the stories that have inspired it. Now, I’m poring through those stories and taking notes on structure. This has been immensely helpful in crafting a truly great story. (No peeking!) I love … Continue reading Today’s Office, 20 December 2017
Today’s Office. 18 December 2017. A somber day, all. I’ve not taken my own advice. After struggling with and losing sleep on these Reclamation edits, I’ve decided to give myself some much-needed slack. Some writer idols have suggested a larger gap between finishing the first draft and the starting the second pass. Mir says I … Continue reading Today’s Office, 18 December 2017
Y’all, I really cannot explain how strange it is to be living in a house. I know that sounds super strange, but it’s true. I’ve been living in a van (comfortably!) for almost six months now, and I’ve gotten used to the rigors of the road. The showers at the gym, waking up in a … Continue reading Follow-up Friday: 15 December 2017
Today’s Office. 14 December 2017. I’m in a junkyard! Unfortunately, I’m not writing here—though I wish I could! I’m getting some sweet enviro-vibes for Reclamation. We’re here to snag some parts for the van and get it looking a little better! Following that, it’s a busy day. Revisions and re-writes for Reclamation, possibly some schoolwork. … Continue reading Today’s Office, 14 December 2017
Today’s Office. 11 December 2017. Officially started working on the second draft of Reclamation. I’ve already identified some key, high-level changes that need to be made. So begins the long road to turning a sandbox into sand castles. I love you all. Have a great day! — R.
Today’s Office. 6 December 2017. Hey all! I’m sorry for being a bit sporadic on the posts. We’ve been traveling essentially non-stop from New Mexico to Florida—we’ve been through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. We’re now making a short stop in St. Augustine, Florida to check out some history! (I’m a sucker for that stuff!) … Continue reading Today’s Office, 6 December 2017
It’s December, y’all. We’re one month away from finishing out 2017--and what a year it’s been. I’ve been mulling around doing a post meant to look back on the last year. Seems like a good idea, but I haven’t fully committed to it yet (for various reasons). I’ve also been considering expanding the “business”, if … Continue reading Follow-up Friday: 1 December 2017
