Writing…

Next Chapter Bookstore & Bistro is my favorite place to write.   Yeah, sure, lots of people go to bookstores to buy books.  Not me, I go there to write books.  Just the kind of crazy hoot ‘n nanny that I am all about.  The right amount of distraction, endless supply of coffee and snacks combined with some of the nicest folks you will ever meet.

Easter Egg Alert – I have written Next Chapter into the epilogue of the West Wind.

And I finished a scene (3 scenes to a chapter… 1 & 1/3 to go!)

Shameless Self Promotion – More Content Ahead

Welcome to those of you who are visiting for the first time through the efforts of my shameless self promotion.  I am planning on carpeting Gen Con with “The West Wind” business cards just to bring in more visitors.  With that in mind, I am planning a bit of a content blitz starting 8/1 and leading up to Gen Con itself.

What you are likely to see:

  • Character introductions
  • Plot highlights
  • Recounting my agonizingly slow writing progress
  • What I want to do next with my draft
  • Random ramblings
  • A few book reviews as I get caught up on my steampunk reading
  • References to some of my favorite writing podcasts
  • More Random Ramblings

So welcome first time visitors, welcome back others that have been here before – lets get out the brass goggles and feed the firebox… it is going to be a fun ride.

Writers Group

I was introduced to a new writers group tonight – some really great folks and a couple of old friends from writing class.  I enjoyed attending and hope that I get to spend more time with them in the future.

Quick progress update…. I have 1 & 2/3 chapter to complete the first draft.  I have to get it done before heading off to Gen Con next week.  Have to keep it under a year!
