01/22/2020 Snippet, FROZEN DREAMS.

Kind of amused at the different types of professional assumptions I can play with when it comes to these characters.

01/22/2020 Book Report.

Decided to power on through various things going on to get back into it. Have done so. Did it help? Meh, but I got some good copy out of it.

  • 74.8K words. A lot more than I expected today, honestly.
  • Added a scene to justify something.
  • Improved on an existing scene.

01/21/2020 Book Report.

Today was a bye day. The kids went back to school after a three day weekend, the house needed cleaning for my wife’s monthly A&S get-together, and I just had a bunch of stuff to do. I suspect that I’ll be busy this evening drinking hot chocolate and reading NOS4A2, too: I’ve been trying to read this damned book for a year now and I finally gave up and just ordered a used paperback from Amazon. A little recharging is in order tonight, I think.

Although I did ask around for somebody to do proofreading, though. I won’t need to set that up until March or so, but it doesn’t hurt to get space on people’s calendars ahead of time. OK, so I did do stuff involving the book today after all.

They’re in the Brute Squad! And, yes, it’s an official name. Much about New California becomes clear when you realize the influence a movie like THE PRINCESS BRIDE would have on their culture.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Winners Write History.’

Patreon!

‘Winners Write History’ is the hundred-word summary of the short story that I’d like to write in the Dark Tide Rising series, if only I could manage to sell it to John Ringo at this exact point in history. Then again: if I can say it in one hundred words, does it need to be a short story? I can never decide.

I almost wrote this up as ‘Dude took out three people.’ I don’t know what I was thinking.

01/19/2020 Book Report.

Mostly: words! Words, words, words. Once this scene is put in, I may only have minor things left to sprinkle in. Scary!

  • 72.7K words.
  • Fight scene!
  • Hypocrisy scene, involving existing character who doesn’t want to hear it from the Shamus!

Book of the Week: At The End of the World.

At The End of the World is in John Ringo’s Black Tide Rising zombie series, but it’s by Charles Gannon instead of Ringo. And it’s only in pre-order right now. But come, I will concede nothing from you: it’s not exactly been a banner week for reading new books, or indeed any books besides the one that I’ve been finishing up with squeezing out of my brain since winter started. I mean, obviously I’m gonna read AtEotW when it finally comes out. This is known.

I don’t know how authors did this before they invented word processors. I well and truly do not. It’s just so much easier to edit now.
