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 […]

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 […]

It’s conference time again

Posted by nightphoenix on January 15, 2013 in Art, News, Novels, Output |

The Space Coast Writers’ Guild puts on a writing conference every year, around the end of January…and it always manages to sneak up on me 😛 It’s a small, comfortable conference, and we do manage to get some very good people to come and speak. This year we have something like five agents and two […]

The obligitory resolution post

Posted by nightphoenix on January 2, 2013 in Art, News, Novels, Output, Short Stories |

I don’t know that I’ve ever done one of these before. I actually don’t normally make New Years resolutions…not the conscious, write-it-down on a notepad list sort. Maybe I’ll have a vague notion of “Hmm, maybe I should try to accomplish such and such this year…”, but I’m not enough of a goal-driven person for […]

The Owl and the Dead Boy

Posted by nightphoenix on November 15, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process |

“Wow, Nightphoenix, you’ve been blathering on about Nightwish for three posts now. Isn’t this a bit excessive?” Yes. It is. And yet, and yet…right now all this fangirling is acting as creative fuel, which I am reluctant to put the brakes on. I’ve finished more drawings in four weeks than I have probably in the […]

I am never writing a 92,000 word novel in six weeks ever again!

Posted by nightphoenix on July 25, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process |

Of course, by saying that, I have practically ensured that it will happen sometime in the future. Oh and, I’m home! I spent a week at my husband’s parents’ house, and another two weeks at my mom’s new place in Tennessee. In that time, I was able to crank out a ridiculous amount of writing. […]

Musings on the new story

Posted by nightphoenix on June 10, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process |

I’ve been working on Shades for a long time. As in, I think we’re either coming up on or surpassing seven years now. It’s a familiar, comfortable old shoe of a story whose characters I know as well as I know my family. And while I’ve certainly thought about, plotted out, and even started a […]

What does twitter, revisions, and third person POV have in common?

Posted by nightphoenix on June 5, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process |

The Nightphoenix would like to Hulksmash them, that’s what. For some reason, I cannot get my twitter plugin to tweet my blog posts on the new MariahMBird page. The best I’ve been able to do is STOP it from continuing to post them on the old page. I have imputted my new username and password […]
