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 […]

It was in the title all along

Posted by nightphoenix on November 26, 2012 in Process |

I know why This Chosen Fate was giving me such a hard time, and now I’m kind of kicking myself. I thought I just wasn’t in the right mood or mindset to tackle the story right now, or something…eh, I should know better. Being a writer means being able to write oneself into the appropriate […]

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 […]

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…

Introducing a question to which I don’t have an answer

Posted by nightphoenix on September 17, 2011 in Novels, Process |

I am about to rewrite the knife battle between Avalgo and Othau, which is, in a sense, the climactic moment of my characters’ stay on Dheu. The original fight was in my first draft of the whole trilogy (back before it was a trilogy), and it was one of those awesome, completely unplanned moments. The […]

Inception and the Matrix

Posted by nightphoenix on August 14, 2010 in Input, Screen |

As you might guess from the title, the hubby and I finally got our chance to see this movie. It was well worth the wait. I think the last film I saw starring DiCaprio was Titanic, when I was what…12? 13? It’s not that I don’t like him as an actor, although there is a […]

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 […]

The Lightning Thief

Posted by nightphoenix on February 23, 2010 in Input, Screen |

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s Tuesday. Deal. The hubby and I saw The Lightning Thief last Friday. Now I know what Debra Dixon was talking about, that you’ll never be able to watch a movie again without picking it apart. Gah. I was GMCing all the characters AND trying to determine where the hero was […]
