Another week down, y’all. I feel like I have been all over the country within the last week! There’s been a lot of driving, a lot of planning, and a lot of trying to get everything accomplished before the end of the year. It’s been busy, y’all. Let’s recap! ICYMI: Writer Wednesday was, once again, a … Continue reading Follow-up Friday: 29 December 2017
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. 12 December 2017. Got to get out and enjoy some sunshine today! Also filled out some important paperwork, and am now going to enjoy a brief nap before I get to work on the Reclamation revisions. I love y’all! Have a great day! See you tomorrow for Writer Wednesday! — R.
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
Today’s Office. 28 November 2017. My buddy Ziggy Stardust chillin’ with me while I write today. Already started on some work getting a backlog taken care of so that there’s less blog-pressure per week. It’s been nice knowing I don’t have to write for NaNo! I love you guys! — R.
Today’s Office, 27 November 2017. You’ll notice my trusty Growlithe, Cicero, supporting me while I write tonight! My Eevee, Theodopolis, is crashed out behind him. Oh, Theo... you’re so lazy... Tonight, I’m going super hard on Reclamation. I’m not sure if I’ll finish it tonight, but I’ve only got 9k left to win NaNo (and … Continue reading Today’s Office, 27 November 2017
