I picked this up and I’m excited!
The Expensive Universal Instrument – part 7 – “Once more unto the breech” is here.
I’ve been pushed and pulled in so many area of life for the last long while that it’s been hard to write. I’ve decided to noodle around and push on with the serial. Once again, for those at home, these are basically unplanned and first drafts for my (and hopefully your) amusement.
Does our main character get the Expensive Universal Instrument back? What’s in The Buccaneer’s Treasure? Find out…
I haven’t been updating the blog in the last year or so.
Work has been chaotic to say the least. It’s an excuse, not a reason. I’ve ranted about that and other things in real life almost constantly, there’s no need to rehash that here. It’s not relevant or important anymore.
I will try to pick things back up again here.
Things are getting better, slowly. Summer’s coming and there’s meat to grill or smoke, there’s fun to be had. Some of this stress is lifting and it’s time for me to dust things off and get writing again.
I’m going to be posting more, continuing The Expensive Universal Instrument, talking about other projects and maybe even posting some reviews here and there. I enjoy posting, I enjoy writing…this can only be something good.
The recent short story I’ve been shopping around got another rejection this week (the 8th I think).
This one was different…
I didn’t want to end 2013 not writing. (Long boring story, doesn’t need telling here).
I wanted to have some fun and this series has always been about me having fun.
So, after two years, here is part 6. I hope you enjoy. I intend to keep this going for a while.
Now available is K.M. Weiland’s new book of writing advice “Structuring Your Novel: Essential Keys for Writing an Outstanding Story.”. I was lucky enough to be provided an Advanced Reader E-Copy to review.
I’ve been listening to Weiland’s Wordplay podcast for a long time now (I’ve gone back and listened from the beginning) and her book “Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way To Success” is a large reason I’m an outliner today. I’ve also very much enjoyed “Dreamlander” from the fiction side of her oeuvre.
Read on for a review!
K.M. Weiland asked me if I would be willing to read an ARC of her new book ‘Structuring Your Novel: Essential Keys for Writing an Outstanding Story’ ahead of the August 25th release date and give some feedback and/or review it.
I really enjoyed her other book, ‘Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success’ (It’s becoming painfully obvious that I’m more of a planner than a pantser) so I was thrilled and happy to agree.
Keep an eye on the site for some thoughts about the book. I’ve casually flipped through it already and I like what I see so far. I intend to give it a serious read on my vacation two weeks from now (AFTER I catch up on all the Writing Group reading I’ve been letting slide).
