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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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…

Discontented plugins and unfruitful hunting

Posted by nightphoenix on September 29, 2011 in News, Novels, Output |

Hey look, a post! Apparently one of my plugins was actually hiding all of my posts except the top one, but only if you weren’t logged in. So of course because I was logged in, I didn’t notice. Anywho, I have fixed that problem, and I’ve also gotten the audio player back up and running, […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
