Wednesday Writing - Short Stories and Long Dreams

This Wednesday comes and goes like many others. Minutes turn to hours and the sand pours from top to bottom. It reminds me of my short story series that I am working on THE COLLIDING EMPIRES. It seems that for the past few months, the stories have slowed down in their progress. While A STORM OF CHAOS seemed to fly off the paper, A CHOSEN PATH came and went in bursts. FRIENDS & FOES seems to be dragging on and on as I struggle to put finger to keyboard key. The story is there in my head - I know where I want it to go - the outline is still providing me with a path to follow, but the story itself is not flowing out of me like the muse is singing in my ear like the two previous stories. I know the story fits the world, and it needs to be written, but I’m still looking for the motivation side of things. My plan is to have it done and covers ready (provided by Jeffrey Kosh) before the Blogger Book Fair event in July, so I can participate as an author. I know that this series has potential and that all the stories combined will culminate in a great short story series, but I’m biased aren't I.

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!

A Chosen Path in the Editing Stage

A CHOSEN PATH, the second installment of the Colliding Empires Short Story Series, is now officially in the editing phase. I hope to get some feedback from my writing group in the next couple of weeks, and I have been sifting through it on my own to find those nasty little grammatical errors that crop up when the first draft is done. I hope to have it published on Amazon in 2 to 3 weeks. I would like to thank Jeffrey Kosh for his covers. He will be providing me with the covers for all ten of the short stories that I plan to publish for this series. If you are an author and are looking for covers that easily fit into your budget, I would suggest giving his web page a quick look. Thanks everyone!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
