Character in Depth: Karu

Posted by nightphoenix on May 18, 2015 in Novels, Process |

This is a series I hope to do more of. To pick a particular character from a story of mine and talk about them…where and how they were born/created, how their personality evolved, interesting facts about them, etc. There are basically two ways that I come up with characters. The first is when I have […]

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 […]

Musings of a frustrated agnostic

Posted by nightphoenix on April 12, 2015 in Output |

Ag·nos·tic aɡˈnästik/ noun A person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God. I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to hold a belief system that so few people […]

When the universe drops hints

Posted by nightphoenix on April 11, 2015 in Output |

I believe people are hardwired inside to look for patterns in life. I also think people who spend a lot of time nurturing their creativity tend to be especially good at this. Producing good writing, or good art, or music, or even doing things like software design or engineering…you have to take advantage of patterns. […]

“There’s always another secret”

Posted by nightphoenix on December 4, 2013 in Output, Process |

As Mr. Sanderson says. Or in my case, there’s a story running behind every story I’ve written or plan to write. I blame Doctor Who. The whole complicated, twisted, sprawling, growing Who-verse is a fascinating study in worldbuilding. Not so much the aliens, but the rules. Paradoxes. Fixed points. Time travel. People with personal timelines […]

Yet another picture post

Posted by nightphoenix on August 11, 2013 in Art, Output |

  I got so busy yammering on about my writing last post that I neglected to share the drawings I’ve done. I did manage to finish Imaginaerum, minus the Song of Myself redo…I’m doing the epics on a different schedule. Here’s Scaretale:     In the end I wasn’t entirely satisfied with this one. When […]

All the revisions, all at once

Posted by nightphoenix on August 6, 2013 in News, Novels, Output |

To start off, we’re moving. We’ve finally reached a point where the cost of rent was going to be equal to or greater than the cost of paying a mortgage on a house, so back in April we started house hunting. After several false hopes and close calls, we found a nice one. Unfortunately, it […]

Pic spam, and no, I’m not dead

Posted by nightphoenix on May 12, 2013 in Art, Novels, Output |

I’ve actually sat down several times in the last few months thinking, “I should probably update the blog…” But inevitably I would think of something more pressing I needed to do, like work on a picture or write or…etc. Which is why it’s now May 😛 I’ve managed to keep up my goal of churning […]

Of mermaids and rhyme

Posted by nightphoenix on March 11, 2013 in Art, Novels, Output, Process |

I did manage to finish Turn Loose the Mermaids before the end of last month, keeping me on my two-per-month quota. Went with a Lady of Shallot theme with this one, as it fit so well with the mood of the song. I’m not quite as pleased with it as I was with Storytime, mostly […]

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 […]
