Saturday

I am what you might call knee deep in Nanowrimo, and I should probably more like hip-deep, but you know – it is what it is, as they say. I always challenge myself by writing more than one novel, because the idea is that I can bounce around between them. I have been doing a… Read More Saturday

Sunday

I am always looking for interesting connections and coincidences – Burroughs built instruction manuals into his fiction … ways for seeing the world. Like watching a tv show where an agent is going under cover and getting Nazi tattoos while reading about social media platforms having problems with Nazis and not appearing like tyrants. And… Read More Sunday

Tuesday

I haven’t really done one of these for a second – some times I am focused on the writing, and sometimes I am focused on the process of writing, and want to unpack the whole thing for people. This week I have been world-building, and it involved a fair amount of research – it is… Read More Tuesday

Saturday

It is interesting several different parts of a larger universe at the same time, because you drop a pebble in one pool and echoes in the magic mirror of another.

Wednesday

Ambition is also codified… Read More Friday

It’s the morning – and I am awake a hell of a lot earlier than I intended to be. Well, partly true. I knew I had to be awake, but my Saturday morning sleep is kind of the necessary energy recoup point of my week. I tend to be low energy most of the week… Read More Saturday

Friday

Some weeks you burn through. And you feel in some ways you get little done you were aiming for. I am not sure about this week, because there were some targets met, but there were a few missed. It seems to split evenly between admin and site creation and actual writing at the moment. What… Read More Friday
