#1LineWed – Theme: Double

I didn't really love any of my lines with "double" in them to stand on their own, so I went with "twice" instead today. Also I hate the word "slough," but I use it because it's so visceral and gross. Ah, the sacrifices I make for my art.

#1LineWed – Theme: Backward

Here, have a line. Haven't done this on the blog for a while! I am so excited about these books that still need a series title. They're my best ever (as they probably should be since, ya know, evolution and all that), and so much fun to write. Also, I just got back some rough… Continue reading #1LineWed – Theme: Backward

I haven't blogged much this month, but I'm getting back into it. Also, purple. These books are coming along great, and I have a whole scrum board for my writing process now. It's insane. I'm like...a business now. This is what paying taxes does to a lady, I guess.

Brandon Sanderson Should Fund A Rival to Amazon Books

It doesn't have to be Brandon Sanderson, but I mention him because he's, well, frickin' Sanderson, right? He just got the biggest Kickstarter in the history of Kickstarters funded, the money's there, and he has some opinions on Amazon and bookstores that I think would make him a good candidate for doing it. So, think… Continue reading Brandon Sanderson Should Fund A Rival to Amazon Books

Here's my word count per day for the last month-ish: 2/24 - 54303/7 - 46063/17 - 43872/25 - 60353/8… Continue reading Second Draft, Faster Than The Last
