I don’t know what to say…

November 9, 2014

I have to admit it, it has been a tough year. I have not been doing much writing; what just went up onto the King’s Poetry is a poem I wrote a long time ago. In the summer, I did go to the Heart of the City and participated in a pop up art show and sale, but writing has been a bit of a chore. I don’t know why. I have been making myself write a little each day when I can, but ultimately, I haven’t got much done. I usually don’t do blogging or any kind of work on Sunday, but since I haven’t been writing so much, I decided to go for it.

Ok. Let’s leave that behind. What have I got done on Sword of Earth? Well, I finished chapter 9. I just have to edit it and get it off to my beta readers. I am almost through chapter ten. Four more chapters to go. Yay! Draft three is going to be different though. I am going to take what people have said and rewrite in the first person so I can get into my character’s head. I find that’s the best way. Then in draft 4, (yes, I know there will be a draft 4,) I will be reverting back to the close first person. I think that way, I will be able to describe more, and have more detail in the book.

I’m not going to say what my plans are, because, I have found, writing on here is like talking for me, and talk is cheap. If I think it’s really going to happen, you’ll hear about it. I think that’s part of my problem. I have been saying what I will do, and then life, or my self esteem gets in the way and I have bitten off more than I can chew.

Well, until next time, take care, and God bless.

Prologue, 1, 2, now 3!

March 30, 2011

I know the title seems weird, but what it’s talking about is the book, Sword of Earth. I have just finished chapter 2, and now, in chapter three, the third member of the party, Scarlet Fira is introduced. Scarlet is the elemental guardian of Fire. They are imprisoned and find a way out. I am looking forward to working on the rest of the book.

I am also working on my blogs, as you can tell, as well as reshaping my ministry, Heart’s Alive! It’s purpose? To encourage a relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, art, and music. When I have redesigned the website, I’ll let you know.

I have been thinking about ways to explore settings lately and exploring that with Fantasy lately. I’m thinking of doing it with Sword of Earth too because we need to convey the setting to the reader. Any ideas?
