What It’s All For

Posted by nightphoenix on January 6, 2015 in Process |

As the new year turns over, I find myself once again staring at this bit of cyberspace I call a blog and wondering what on earth to do with it. There are many options. I could do book reviews! Movie reviews! Post bits of my work! Writing rants and difficulties! Thoughts on characters and plots! […]

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 […]

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 […]

Summer at last! Wait…

Posted by nightphoenix on May 29, 2012 in Output, Process |

Summer vacation is here, at least for my son. What that means for me, of course, is finding new and creative ways to keep an active, extroverted elementary aged boy occupied for two months. Not easy for an introverted writer personality. I have a few goals for the summer, beside staving off boredom and insanity. […]

Work, work, work…

Posted by nightphoenix on May 18, 2012 in Novels, Output, Process |

So I’ve been struggling for…sheesh, years probably…trying to come up with a system to keep myself productive when it comes to writing. I will sometimes have entire weeks and occasionally months in which I get very little to nothing done, and that’s time I can’t get back. Well, I think I’ve come up with a […]

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 […]

Hunting again

Posted by nightphoenix on January 31, 2012 in News, Novels |

Well, yesterday I sent out a new batch of queries. I think that both my query letter and story are much stronger than they were at this time last year, but I suppose I’ll have to wait and see what sort of response I get. The issue that’s going to work against me the worst, […]

Revisit, re-assess

Posted by nightphoenix on December 22, 2011 in Novels, Output, Process |

I just looked at the date of the last post I made here, and I’m fairly embarrassed. I’d love to say I’ve been wonderfully busy and productive and just haven’t had the time to update…

It’s not personal

Posted by nightphoenix on May 10, 2011 in Novels, Output |

Yesterday I had the interesting and depressing experience of having two rejections land in my inbox on the same day. The second, naturally, appearing having gotten up from the brief nap I’d taken having been down about the first. Both were typical form letter rejections, the kind that give no insight whatsoever into why the […]

Updates

Posted by nightphoenix on May 5, 2011 in Input, Life, News |

Yes, it has been too long. April was a month full of surprises and changes. My car died. Like, permanently. Poor old Pontiac. The only thing worse than driving an overheating car across Melbourne was then having nightmares about driving said overheating car across Melbourne that night. Which, I now know, was not a wise […]
