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…

Characters with magic are so difficult to put in peril

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

Seriously. Here’s the situation. Saeli, Raphel, Mora, and Kaladan are on a world that is, due to a series of unfortunate events involving three jealous goddesses, one naive god, and a very angry angelic…well, doomed. Said goddesses created an extremely infectious disease that eventually rendered every single female on the planet unable to bear children. […]

Caught an art bug

Posted by nightphoenix on December 20, 2010 in Art, Output |

They happen. Sometimes I go through stages where I just have to draw something before I can write again. Anyway, I’ve started something of a series. I’m (maybe) going to do a shot of every hero and heroine from each of my story ideas paired together. I finished Saeli and Raphel this morning, and have […]

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 […]

Finished a chapter (finally)

Posted by nightphoenix on September 28, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Delved a little deeper into Raphel’s heart than I really meant to. Hey, not my fault. It actually worked as something of a distraction for Saeli, preventing her from thinking too hard on the fact that he just killed someone. Again. Yesterday I listened to a Writing Excuses podcast about first person POV, and a […]

Slow scene

Posted by nightphoenix on July 31, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Maybe it’s because I’m on vacation. (Um, yeah, btw, we’re in North Carolina for the week with the hubby’s parents…) Hard to get any solid writing done. Or maybe it’s because I’m writing a Saeli/Brendan conflict scene, and that’s harder to do from Saeli’s head. I dunno. It ought to be easier, because I’ve got […]

Tea and seduction

Posted by nightphoenix on July 23, 2010 in Novels, Output |

So I’ve reached the point (again) where Raphel has convinced Saeli to help him overthrow the gods. I had to do it a little differently (again), because her internal struggles are a little different. On the first draft of the story, Saeli was very naive, so Raphel didn’t have to try all that hard to […]

Shades continues

Posted by nightphoenix on July 19, 2010 in Novels, Output |

It will be so gratifying when I don’t have to say that anymore. Five years is a long time for a project, you know? I think, I think, that the scene I’m currently working on will be one of the last to involve significant changes to the storyline itself. It’s the scene where Saeli meets […]

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, […]

Brendan surprised me again

Posted by nightphoenix on May 6, 2010 in Novels, Output |

Gotta give the guy some credit. He seems like such a simple character: classic Boy-Next-Door, the one who’s perfect for the heroine but she just doesn’t see it. (In Saeli’s defense, I’m not sure Brendan’s actually “better” for her, in terms of compatibility. I do think they could have made it work, and work well, […]
