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 […]

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 […]

A merry massive mixed-update

Posted by nightphoenix on December 25, 2012 in Art, News, Short Stories |

I’m writing this on Christmas Day, while the boys are busy playing video games. Not something I was ever into. Therefore, I’m pretty bad at them, which makes me disinclined to play them, which means I don’t get any better…it’s a self-defeating cycle I have no particular inclination to break. Things have been busy these […]

Deviating

Posted by nightphoenix on November 24, 2012 in Art, Output, Process, Short Stories |

I finally broke down and created a DeviantART account. Maybe it will keep me motivated to keep making art after the NW buzz dies down. (It’s starting to, a bit). I’ve put up all the NW stuff, plus some dragon sketches I’ve had sitting around. I’m realizing I have a lot of artwork sitting around […]

Some things

Posted by nightphoenix on March 23, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process, Short Stories |

Let’s see. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on a short story written from Brendan’s point of view. It takes place during the span of time when Saeli is missing from Aschamon, just before she makes her reappearance. I’m planning to enter it in the Writer’s Digest contest, as well as one other (that isn’t […]

How the hell do they even know how to talk?

Posted by nightphoenix on December 10, 2010 in Film, Output, Short Stories |

Remember how I said I discovered a great, gaping hole in my Grimms premise? Part of the idea is that children are kidnapped by faeries when they are babies and toddlers, because children who grow up in Arcadia make better, more docile slaves. It’s all they know. All my Grimms are kidnapped as toddlers, and […]

Update: Smell of November revisit

Posted by nightphoenix on September 8, 2010 in Novels, Output, Process, Short Stories |

This month I’m making it a goal to revisit The Smell of November. I think that story always suffered from the word limit needed to enter it in the WD contest. So I’m lengthening it, and tweaking the storyline a bit. I’m making it more ambiguous, so that the reader never really knows if Alan […]

Grimms, revisited

Posted by nightphoenix on December 22, 2009 in Film, Output, Short Stories |

The hubby wants me to come up with a short story that we could possibly turn into a short video. I keep coming back to the Grimms concept because it has such potential to be a serial tale. (Quick recap, Grimms: a woman escapes from Arcadia and begins rescuing other children from the Fae. Some […]

More reviews, and a new idea

Posted by nightphoenix on November 16, 2009 in Books, Output, Short Stories |

I finished Industrial Magic, and I still agree with my previous post. Urban fantasy, not paranormal romance. Good, though. I’m definitely going to track down the first one. I also finished: Hidden Currents: by Christine Feehan This seems to be part of a series of unrelated books all dealing with the same characters: the Drake […]

Contest update

Posted by nightphoenix on October 27, 2009 in Output, Short Stories |

Well, “The Smell of November” has officially been sent off to Writer’s Digest pop fiction contest. I should hear something back around January-ish, if I’ve placed. If not, oh well. Thank you to my friend K and the folks in my writer’s group for their critiques!
