A cycle of three birds

Posted by nightphoenix on May 10, 2015 in Art, Life, Music |

“don’t give me love, don’t give me faith wisdom nor pride, give innocence instead don’t give me love, i’ve had my share beauty nor rest, give me truth instead a crow flew to me, kept its distance such a proud creation i saw its soul, envied its pride but needed nothing it had” The first […]

Thoughts on A Memory of Light

Posted by nightphoenix on March 1, 2013 in Books, Input |

First of all, I have to say kudos to Mr. Sanderson. Finishing this series must have been a bear of a task, and he did a fantastic job with it. Secondly, this has been a horribly unproductive week for me, and I’m placing the blame squarely on that book. Good books are awful like that: […]

There’s a story here, I just have to find it

Posted by nightphoenix on February 25, 2013 in Art, Input, Life, Process, Short Stories |

As a writer, I find myself saying this a lot. I’ve heard of writers who have a difficult time coming up with ideas…and I confess, I have no idea what that feels like. As of right now, if I never had another story idea again, I have enough material sitting on my computer to keep […]

Nightwish project update

Posted by nightphoenix on February 18, 2013 in Art, Input, Music, Output |

Well, I sort of changed my mind about having a separate page for the project…I can just post updates in the regular blog and tag them. Also, FYI, this is a longish post. I finished Storytime at last, and have been working on Turn Loose the Mermaids. Storytime turned out really, really good…I’m quite proud […]

Three and a half years

Posted by nightphoenix on January 27, 2013 in Art, Input, Music, Output |

I’ve started an audacious, slightly insane project. Actually technically I started it back in September, in that first NW drawing I did. You know, this one:

Night(wish) to End All Nights

Posted by nightphoenix on November 14, 2012 in Input, Music |

I wrote this review over on the OSA (Oceansouls of America) forum, and I’m pretty much just going to paste it here. (I apologize in advance for the swearing. Sometimes, though, it’s appropriate.)

A Confusion of Squirrels

Posted by nightphoenix on November 14, 2012 in Art, Input, Music, Output, Process |

We’ve made an observation in our small group: distractions are like a dog spotting a squirrel. It can’t focus on anything else for that brief moment, until it spots the next one. And so on, until before you know it, you’ve been chasing squirrels for an hour. I feel like I’ve been chasing squirrels since […]

Random Friday advice

Posted by nightphoenix on August 24, 2012 in Input, Life |

The 22 rules of storytelling, according to former Pixar storyboard artist Emma Coats: #1: You admire a character for trying more than for their successes. #2: You gotta keep in mind what’s interesting to you as an audience, not what’s fun to do as a writer. They can be v. different. #3: Trying for theme […]

What Brave did right and what it could have done better

Posted by nightphoenix on June 29, 2012 in Input, Screen |

Like many, I went to see Brave this last weekend. It was an enjoyable movie, although I don’t think we will be taking our six-year-old. This is the child who decided that Arrietty was too scary; thus, I don’t see him coping well with the bear scenes. Some of those scared me a bit. Warning: […]
