Head —> Wall, Repeat.

So lately I’ve been suffering from this urge to rewrite Path. I mean, really, I’ve been thinking about it on and off since last August when I met Lovely Agent Jen and talked with her about the book. Partly this is because I always find talking things out with a new person to be a […]

Time to Submit

March 30, 2012 by

Today is Friday. Which is taking me a little bit by surprise as for some reason I spent most of last night and yesterday evening convinced today was going to be the weekend. But this is good. It means I have one more day to avoid making final decisions about what I’m going to submit […]

The For-God’s-Sake-Put-the-Book-Down-and-Walk-Away Approach to Editing

I just found a plot hole in the second book of Path. It’s tiny really, but I’m still sitting here thinking, How did no one notice that? How did I not notice that? I have to rewrite all of, oh, two paragraphs, so it’s not a problem at all. Except for the way it makes […]

See, I have these two completely contradictory desires — for everyone to read my work and to not let anyone see it. Which I think […]

Exploding Dog

There is an online comic called Exploding Dog. It’s pretty cool. In some ways it’s more a series of connected pieces of art than a true comic. Also, you should maybe know that while there is a dog in it from time to time I’ve never seen it explode. And it’s certainly not about the […]

Out of Thin Air and Madness

September 16, 2011 by

I feel ridiculously virtuous because I’ve been working on book two of Path (TRTH) the last few days. Probably because while I was busy trying to get the framework of book three functioning and creating Wizards out of thin air and madness the second book was sitting there mocking me. Well not all of it. […]
