Chapter 8… The dance begins

Dear Chapter 8 Today we see how you are going to behave. Will you be a PITA like your predecessors? Chapter 6 was so annoying I almost trashed it but I molded it into something useful after waging war with it. Chapter 7 was a worthy foe but it also fell into line. I hope… Continue reading Chapter 8… The dance begins

Writing in Arizona… FINALLY getting to chapter 8.

Dear Arizona; I've been stagnant...and my well of creativity has dried up much like the desert that surrounds me. It is beautiful to look at, and not nearly as hot as I thought it would be and we've had rain a few times. It seems to refresh the landscape... how about some refreshment for me?… Continue reading Writing in Arizona… FINALLY getting to chapter 8.

Today…. Chapter 7. Your time is up! Bwah ha ha ha!

Dear Chapter 7... *insert heavy sarcasm here* Last night while I was editing late into the evening I made a very very happy discovery. I realized that I was on page 9.

EXCERPT from ALLEYS 2:  Robert awoke to his cell phone vibrating itself across the nightstand. The incessant rumble of it had wormed itself into his dream. He was going to have to remember to turn the thing off so he could get a decent night’s sleep! But of course he couldn’t do that, not right… Continue reading EXCERPT from ALLEYS and Broken Dreams: (found from jan 2015 apparently not published?)

Chapter 7: Apparently you didn’t get the memo.

Chapter 7.... I will defeat you, even if that means splitting you up into two chapters and prolonging this editing. I'm in no mood to write a fancy rant so I'm keeping this one simple. You clearly didn't get the message or you completely ignored the warning to fall in line and be good. In… Continue reading Chapter 7: Apparently you didn’t get the memo.

Progress Report: Chapter 6… praise to a worthy opponent.

Dear Chapter 6, You were a worthy adversary; you fought bravely but in the end: I conquered you. A twelve hour battle of wits and wordplay, stubborn determination and lots and lots of rearranging. In the end, we have both emerged from this missive battle better for the experience. You threw missing words at me,… Continue reading Progress Report: Chapter 6… praise to a worthy opponent.
