That Blogging Horse

All righty, so it’s been a while. And by a while I mean like half a year. But I figured I might as well poke that old blogging horse again. Plus I’m slightly bored and feel like procrastinating from my writing projects (as usual).

So. How about a quick update about all the (not) exciting things that I’ve been up to since November? Glad you asked. Here ya go:

Writing Stuff:

  • Finished The Silver Crane at the end of March, clocking in at 193,000 words.
  • Wrote a screenplay in April for Script Frenzy that is completely cringe-worthy and I’m trying my best to forget about. Definitely not as good as last year’s.
  • Currently editing a short story The Painter and the Sky for a contest. Short stories are troublesome beasts. Novels are easier.
  • Pondering tweaking The Whale and the Tree yet again, mostly focusing on the ending–which I fear I might have kinda messed up with my edits last year–and some minor details throughout the rest of it. Then it’s off to nab me an agent!
  • Musing on ideas for this year’s nano novel, which I’ve dubbed The Last Garden and will be set in the same universe-system as Rose Queen and Fire in the Glass. Should be pretty awesome if I can coax it into some semblance of a coherent plot.

Awesome Books:

Other Stuff

  • Over the past week, I’ve gotten ridiculously addicted to the TV series Legend of the Seeker, which is, according to a comment I came across somewhere on the interwebs, “a guilty pleasure for Lord of the Rings fans who need their fix.” Hilarious, and true.
  • I’m learning to play the guitar! I’ve been at it a little over three weeks now, and am pleased to announce that I have callouses on the fingers of my left hand. I know three songs, and am not very good at them.

And that, ladies and gents, is that.
