Summer Begins

June 22, 2013

Hi everyone!

Yay!  Summer is actually here!  We have been getting a lot of rain in our province and the southern end of it is actually in a lot of trouble due to them.  Our city itself is under flood watch right now.

The news on the home front is that our community garden has just been planted.  It is late in the season, so it will be interesting as to what comes up.  I am growing squash, carrots, turnips, zucchini, corn, beans, and for something pretty, some snapdragons.  We are in a raised bed this year, so this makes planting easier.  I loved it.

On the writing front, I have made some progress.  I have submitted Maidenhood Sign to Beneath Ceaseless Skies, so I am waiting on pins and needles as to whether it will succeed or not.  If not, I will try one more time, and if it doesn’t succeed, I will publish it myself on Fantasy’s Fancy.  I have just published the poem “Who?” on The King’s Poetry, and it already has a like, praise God!  Ok, now on to the really juicy news!  I have mentioned the Kent Chronicles, I’m certain of it, especially in the past few blog postings.  I have decided to do it like a chronicle, or a blog of members of the city.  For the moment, they will be around Mary and her journey.

That’s where I’m looking for an app or something I can use online.  I am using Edmonton loosely as a place.  Numbered streets as well as avenues will be replaced with names, and buildings will be relocated to keep their locations more secret.  The only difference is that I would like to put them on points of interest on a map. I don’t want to put it on something like FourSquare because they will be different from our town.  I want this to be as interactive as possible so that if someone were to come to Edmonton who read the blog, if they chose, they could see where Mary “lived”.  I would want to do it with hashtags, and have it link to the posting on the blog.  If anyone has any ideas, feel free to post.  Thanks.  Feel free to read The Kent Chronicles.

Ok., maybe that wasn’t the really juicy stuff.  For months now I have been mentioning that I was going to have a podcast for the King’s Poetry.  Well, the introduction to the podcast is up!  I will be doing the first podcast episode in a little over a week.  Here is the link. 

Just as an afterthought, I am planning on working on the art for the King’s Poetry Chapbook as well.  Lord willing, it will be ready for publication in five years.  Also as an afterthought, and I can’t believe I did this, I am again working on Sword of Earth with precautions so that if something happens to my computer, I can always work on it.

So, things are growing, just as things are in the garden and in the world around us.  All I have to do is praise God, for it’s all His.  He’s growing it.  Thank you for reading, and may your journeys be safe.  Take care, and God bless.

A Lot Going on

May 8, 2013

Hello everyone,

Wow, time has flown by, hasn’t it?  It seems like yesterday when I was writing the post called “Much Ado About Everything”.  I’m hoping to keep you all more up to date about what is going on.

On the chapbook front, I have begun to read through my revised poems and make notes as to themes.  I want to make sure that I have the right theme to create the chapbooks.  I am planning on making the chapbooks out of duotangs with CD jackets glued to the back covers, but it’s not going to be for a while.

On the audio front, I have just bought myself a headset for my computer.  I will be using this for when I record to Spreaker.  I am going to use the Spreaker App for the iphone, but it will only be for when I am out and about and want to get some birdsong or the sounds around me, whatever they are.

Speaking of funds, and I won’t mention this very often, I am thinking of getting involved in some affiliate programs here on the site.  I would like to have them because any little bit I get will go to the production of the chapbooks as well as if something happens to the computer etc.  I haven’t decided whether to make it a new page, or make it a part of the main one.

As for podcasts, I have encountered another good one, and some day, I hope to submit to this one as well.  It’s a young adult fiction podcast called Cast of Wonders.  The stories are well written and professionally read.  I hope you enjoy them.

On the fiction writing front, my book is at a stand still for right now.  I just haven’t had the urge to write it for a while, especially since I still can’t find my flash card.  I am thinking of just putting the files in the cloud as back up since I can’t keep things in order on my person.

Ok, I promise this will be the last paragraph, but I’d like to know something.  Please feel free to comment, as this is your blog as it is mine.  Would you like a little series about blogging?  I’m no expert, but I am willing to help out as best as I can.  I would be willing to write about 4-6 posts on the subject and people can ask questions, but I won’t start until I hear from you.

So, until next time, may your journeys be safe.  Take care and God bless you.
