Newsletter Fall 2018

I’ve had a very productive year at least in the background. I know there haven’t been a lot of site updates but I’ve got lots of big projects brewing and I don’t like to post novels as works in progress (as you know). This policy is one reason why I really enjoy posting in episode format. It made posting big works like (Sentinels of Atlantis and Harry Potter & the Soulmate Bond) much easier to manage. Still, there is something pretty righteous about putting together a novel like Courting Hermione Granger — it is an entirely different experience than writing a series of episodes.

Newsletter July 2017

I think Rough Trade is going well for me but I’m very comfortable in the episode format so I didn’t expect it to be much of a challenge on that front. I essentially failed to pants though–I had to stop and plot as to avoid driving myself crazy. I’m writing episode 5 and I’m enjoying the change of pace I’ve plotted for this one.

February 2017 Newsletter

I’m plugging right along on the writing front. The weather sucks. I’m tired of experiencing all of the seasons in a four-day cycle. I’ve been fiddling with a Girl McKay which you might have noticed and expanded my short into a story/episode. I’ve plotted about 10 of them and I’m pretty amused with the whole thing. I’ve already almost finished the second episode and it’ll probably go into beta next week sometime.

December 2016 Newsletter

I really don’t have much to say since I’m all blah and shit. There were no radio shows in November because of National Novel Writing Month. I did complete 50k during the month but I still feel like I failed the challenge since it is a disjointed mess that I can’t even open at present because it is so frustrating.

November 2016 Newsletter

Sometimes I hate my brain because it never stops. Just about half way through my NANO story, I came to realize that my structure is deeply flawed. This comes from a creator perspective because I’m not getting there in the writing and by “there” I mean I’m not seeing the story develop the way I wanted it to develop. The premise is a lot bigger in my head than what I’ve been able to put down in real, actual words.
