A Lot of News

June 10, 2013

Well, Spring has come around yet again…or is it supposed to be summer?  Technically, not until the 21st, but here in Edmonton, it has been really rainy.  We had 30+ degree temperatures at the beginning of the month, but now, it’s pretty rainy.  That is indicative of the change going on in my life too.  I have to quit making it so long between updates.

Our church is going about a move, so I am having to move my paintings from there back home; there is no room right now because I have to declutter my home.  It’s really tough to know they have to live in the back porch for now.  I know this is a blog about writing, but some of those paintings are of a fantasy nature…thus, they could all be story ideas.  Some of my marker paintings are, but it doesn’t matter as much for them because they have a portfolio.  It’s sad.

I am working with some of that sadness in a way.  I finally created a blog called “The Kent Chronicles.” I know that there is a series of books called that, but this is of a magical city called Kent.  It’s loosely based on Edmonton Alberta Canada.  The streets are not numbered though.  They are names of people that have had an impact on my life in one way or another.  The reason I call it the Kent Chronicles, is that we hear about what goes on in Kent through the journals of its citizens, starting out with Mary Anne DeRoss.  I just have the intro up now, but I’m hoping to have the first entry up soon.

I have also made another addition to the boosounds blog.  It’s about our community cleanup last year.  I am hoping to continue to add to it soon.

Speaking of talking, or podcasts, I have finally decided to get working on the King’s Poetry podcast.  I am going to do the intro tomorrow, and hopefully, next week I will have the first episode on the way.  I will let you know when it’s up.  As for the blog, another poem is up.  The King’s Poetry is approaching 100 posts – not all of them first issues, but there is more to come!

Ok, there’s lots of news, but you might wonder, what’s happening with Fantasy’s Fancy?  I might make that into a blog where I invite people to send in their short stories.  I don’t know because I have enough work of my own. I’m thinking I might have to rethink the blog and make her the host…that way she, as a sprite can live without me visiting her.  I don’t know.

What’s going on with Sword of Earth?  I am finally working on it again, and I will be uploading my updates to google drive.  I used to poo-poo the clouds, but now, I think that’s the best way to go.  Five gigabytes is a lot when it comes to text.  The complete drafts go onto skydrive.  Why two?  Then if something happens to one, there’s the other.

So there you have it – the weather, blogs, to my book – there’s a lot going on, not to mention editing my draft of Maidenhood sign.  Keep coming back, and maybe you’ll see some progress.  Do you want to hear my opinions on something?  Just ask.  I don’t know everything; what I don’t know, I’ll research.

Anyway, as Horsemaster says, “Great Terranna!  It’s time to go!”  May your journeys be safe, take care, and God bless.

October updates

October 24, 2012

Hello everyone,

It’s been a while since I last posted – since thanksgiving, I think.  A few things have happened since then.  Today I’m going to finish the second draft of my book, Sword of Earth.  In fact, as I have been working on this post, I have finished it.  Now comes the spell check and getting it off to my beta readers.  I am so excited!  I am still working on chapter 2 of its sequel, Fire Bow, and the first draft is always an adventure.  I’m only editor of the first drafts, because usually the first drafts are filled with crappy writing that needs fleshing out.  I’m also almost finished a short story from Horsemaster’s past.  This story won’t see the internet unless I choose to submit to an online e-zine.

What else am I up to?  Well, I’m working on a fantasy painting as well.  I’m hoping to do a series of photos with one from start to finish at Fantasy’s Fancy, my art and writing blog.  It’s a bit all over the place, but someday, I might do something with that where I can make a chapbook or something like that.  I don’t know.  Not everything has to be a project.  I’m still thinking about putting a donate button on my page to help with things like getting the King’s Poetry project underway, and so forth, but I wonder if anyone would donate.  Is it worth it? I don’t know, but I would be very serious about wondering what peoples’ expectations would be.

Anyway, I’m hoping to get another recording and feature up for boosounds up either today or tomorrow, so I hope you’ll check it out.  Thanks to everyone who visits and tolerates my ramblings.  😉

Ok.  Here is my podcast pick of the week.  Another podcast I listen to for stories is Podcastle.  This is one of the places where authors can submit their work and have it read.  The stories are of superb caliber, and the host, Dave Thompson, is very professional.  They invite people to comment through twitter and through their forums.  I encourage you to try out Podcastle if you like fantasy, as well as their other podcasts.

Well, that’s it for now.  I hope you enjoyed today’s post.  May your journeys be safe ones.  Take care and God bless.

Long time no blog

September 16, 2012

It has been a long time since I have blogged here and much has gone on in my writing life.  I have now completed draft 2 of seven chapters of my book, Sword of Earth and have completed the first draft of the prologue of Fire Bow.  I am still thinking of whether or not I should go independent or not with publishing; I need to know the pros and cons of both.  If you have any ideas, please post them here.

I have also done more thinking about serializing another project I have.  I have put most of the project on Writer’s cafe, but I’d like to do it as a blog I think, but I’m not sure of that either because I don’t want to spread myself too thin as I have in the future.

I have decided to shut down The Food Tunnel, but don’t worry, there is a better blog going on even as we speak.  I have an account at Audioboo.fm, which is called Boosounds.  Boosounds is a boo about my travels, no matter where they are.  They also include audio cooking recipes.  When I get Boosounds set up here on WordPress, I will feature some of my favorite boos and write about the event, more of my impressions, or even bring in some information that I never knew before.

I hope you’re all doing well.  May all your journeys be safe ones.  Take care and God bless.
