    Writing the 3rd book is hard. For the 1st two I wrote with great passion and confidence. Now, I’m second guessing myself. Which isn’t normal for me. So much so that I started adding in things that simply didn’t need to be there. For those that have followed me for a long time, you know I usually underwrite my first draft. This time, however, I’m editing out a bunch of things from early in act 1. Story has more focus now moving into the last part of act 1. Happy I caught it, now to remind myself not to doubt myself again – haha.

    Always learning something new as I write each book. Not just about the story, but myself, too. On words to more words. This post image is from book 1 chapter 17.

  • New Year

    Welcome to 2024! Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday!

    I didn’t get as much writing done as I had hoped because I got sick this holiday season. I did however make some great progress. I finished a short story I’m going to submit this year to a fantasy mag. Different than what I’m writing in Captain’s Fate, it’s a darker, morally gray kind of thing. If the mag’ doesn’t pick it up, I’ll eventually share it myself on my website.

    I was looking to finish the first act of Captain’s Fate book 3, but alas, I came up short. Going finish it as soon as possible in the New Year and keep things moving forward. Still have plans to get it out this year, so stay tuned! Book 3 is going to be a crazy ride!

    I’m back on the social media rounds, so feel free to catch me where ever your presences lies. I’ll see you in the virtual universe!

    Did something this weekend I never really do with my writing. I wrote something other than Captain’s Fate! CF has been my life for three years now and I think I needed a break. So I wrote a short story, fantasy based. I plan to submit it to a Mag. next year, after a little work. If it gets published, I’ll let you know. If not, I’m sure it will show up on my website soon after. Now, back to Jax and crew.

    This week’s image is from book 1 chapter 16!
