New Year, New Update
Oh dear, it’s been far too long since I’ve updated this blog. I’m so sorry dear readers!
But I’m back! I will try to make sure that at the very least, I’m giving you a monthly update.
What I’m currently working on:
The Crystal Crown – it’s a short story in the Tales of Alsban series that introduces a new world that I will be exploring, it’s written in a Lord Dunsay style and I’ll be adding accompanying illustration plates to it.
Chronicles of Avantir – This is a novel, it won’t be out for a while as I first need to convert everything from OCR to English text before I even begin editing it. It is the main novel that the Tales of Alsban is connected to.
The Sword of Justice – It seems like I’ve been working on this novel forever! But it is the novel where I began working out my process. There are no typical processes for what I am doing with this novel, even my editor has had to think outside the box with how to help me. But I’m getting it!
At the moment, I am working backwards from a rough manuscript and breaking it down into an outline. I’ve learned from this that my own writing process is that I am largely a discovery writer who sometimes uses a rough outline. Recognizing this doesn’t mean that I hate outlines, what it means is that I encounter resistance within myself that I have to overcome in order to create outlines for stories. In this case and in this process an outline is the only way that I am going to be able to fix the structural issues in this story.
Having said that, I’m super excited to be back working on this novel! I miss the characters and want to flesh out more scenes with them. They are a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share their adventures with you!
