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. [...]

Fantasy and chamber pots

Posted by nightphoenix on August 25, 2011 in Books, Input |

Currently I’m about 3/4 of the way through A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin, and I’ve got to return the book to the library by tomorrow. That is, of course, if Hurricane Irene doesn’t do a quick loop-da-loop and hit us after all. I have mixed feelings about A Song of Ice [...]

Epics

Posted by nightphoenix on May 27, 2011 in Books, Input, Process |

I just finished the Winds of the Forelands series by David B. Coe, and as fantasy epics go, it was pretty good. It’s rare that I pick up a series at random and have it be unique enough to hold my interest. Although it had many of the classic tropes of epics, they were combined [...]

Fortuitous coincidence

Posted by Mistress of Feathers on May 24, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Go me, I even spelled fortuitous right on my first try. So a month or two ago, there was this author that had been recommended to me, and I kept telling myself I should check her out. Then, at the Cassandra Claire and Holly Black event in Vero, that same author was recommended yet again, [...]

Book signing in Vero

Posted by nightphoenix on May 9, 2010 in News, Output |

So I went to see Holly Black and Cassandra Claire at a little book signing in Vero Beach last Friday. (Good thing I do check LJ every so often, or I might not have known about it). Vero’s only about an hour drive from where we live, so it was really great that they came [...]

Well, it could have been worse

Posted by nightphoenix on March 5, 2010 in Books, Input, Output |

I have a computer again. I’m back to using the much smaller hard drive that came with the computer, and it’s pretty much stuffed to the brim. The hubby has ordered a case that will let him try to boot the messed-up hard drive outside of the laptop…that’s pretty much going to be our last [...]

Brandon Sanderson…and a divine problem

Posted by nightphoenix on February 28, 2010 in Books, Input, Novels, Output |

Brandon Sanderson has officially impressed me. I just finished Warbreaker, which I grabbed because the library had it sitting on their new book shelf. I said, “Oh, that’s the guy that’s finishing the Wheel of Time series, and does Writing Excuses (my favorite writing podcast).” And the inside cover blurb actually looked interesting, in a [...]

NaNoWriMo

Posted by nightphoenix on November 12, 2009 in Output |

Which I am NOT doing this year, by the way. I will probably have to wait until Eli starts kindergarten before I can commit to something like that. (Eli in kindergarten…only 2 years away…where does the time go??) However, I thought I’d provide links, for those who are interested, to a series of NaNoWriMo tips [...]
