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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Fantasy and government

Posted by nightphoenix on February 29, 2012 in Output |

Slogging my way through Promises. There was a week where I was hitting around 1,000 words a day, but things have slowed down as I’ve been having to do a combination of rethinking, re-plotting, and worldbuilding. The political situation on Caosgi, the world Saeli and Co. are currently on, has always been the most difficult […]

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…

The dreaded second act, and other business

Posted by nightphoenix on February 10, 2011 in Input, Novels, Output |

This week I started shopping Hands, Like Secrets around to some agents, and believe it or not, I’ve already had a request for a partial! I actually heard from this agent the day after I queried them. In case you aren’t familiar with the publishing business, such a response is jaw-droppingly fast. Of course, I’ve […]

Abusive personality

Posted by nightphoenix on November 30, 2010 in Novels, Output |

This is something, thankfully, that I know nothing about firsthand. I don’t think I’ve ever spent a significant amount of time with anyone who would fall under that category (if I have, they hid it really well). But alas, that means everything I know is going to come from reading the experiences of others, and […]

Edit update

Posted by nightphoenix on November 22, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Well, the editing has begun. The bird edit is going to take two passes, I realize. The first will involve going back and putting in the birds, lizards, ambiance, etc, and also marking passages that I think could be deleted or need to be changed. Some, I’m just going ahead and fixing. I’m already about […]

Two changes

Posted by nightphoenix on October 16, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Both to Shades, and both of which I thought of while trying to sleep last night. You’ll notice this blog is a place where I take notes that probably aren’t very interesting to anyone but myself. I think better when I’m thinking at somebody else, even if it’s for a sometimes imaginary cyber audience. One, […]
