This weekend I dedicated a good number of hours to work on the novella I am writing. It's a story closely related to what happens in Forged in Fire, but I don't want to give any spoilers yet. So my lips are sealed. For the moment :)
That said, I must admit that I love the rewriting process.
The only problem was - which notebook?
Over the years I used anything I had to write down my ideas and scenes that popped into my head.
Notebooks... Napkins... Sticky notes...
It was easy at first - to find what I needed. Now... not so much.
Now, it's a pile. And it will take me countless hours to sort through the mess and bring some order out of this chaos.
But on the bright side, I can finally finish my series Bible. It's something I have wanted to do for a long time now. I even started it on a few occasions.
I have character information, timelines, relationship trees, but everything scattered across different notebooks and pieces of paper. It's about time to gather it all in one place.
In other words, I'm neck deep in work. Happy Birthday to me!
First of all, I am in the process of expanding my website.
The new pages will contain fun facts, behind the scenes material and even deleted scenes.
A few days ago I realized that while I have shared some information, it's all over the place. And not complete.
I still have to gather everything and package it before I can press the POST button, but it's coming.
Second, I realized that for the longest time I kept myself hidden. I posted about promotions, my books and sometimes characters, but when it comes to me... I was absent.
Well, New Year, New Me! And no, this is not a New Year resolution! We all know how those end.
In other words - I need to stop running. But not literally.
I started running almost a year ago. Hated it at first. Had to stop every few minutes. Worse still, when I finally began seeing progress I discovered I fractured my shinbone.
But now, I'm slowly getting into shape again. And loving it!
Even when the weather is like this:
I write books I would love to read with fantasy worlds I would like to be a part of. Where anything is possible, but nothing more magical than love.
