Dunluce Castle in Ireland… real world Wyvern’s Crest?

I was working on my series this morning and, as part of that, I was contemplating the place where I expect most of the series will take place. The city that, for now, bears the name Wyvern’s Crest. I was noting down what kinds of things the city has that make it such a vital […]

Elizabeth I: War on Terror

I watched this on Amazon’s video service a little while ago and I could not help but think that the information on Elizabeth’s spymaster and security chief, Sir Francis Walsingham, and the things he did would be something that I can quite easily see being a basis for some sort of similar events in my […]

Deciding on a genera for my series

This morning I have been working on deciding what genre my series could best be defined by. For this I have taken a list of ten basic genre types, ones that stories can be broken down and classified as belonging to, and done a bit of thinking through what one best defined the widest scope […]

Come along as I create a series

In the past I have made posts about my efforts to write a book on a pair of princes whose uncle stole their birthright. It seems like something always brings the story to a standstill and, more often than not, I end up starting it all over from the beginning. And yet, it is a […]

Writing Journal

I failed to get this updated the past few days, been kind of busy with working on helping out at the sewing work I do part-time and with my care assistance job, add to that forgetfulness of having restarted this and getting some play-time in on a new game for the gaming over 40 side […]

Mars Station One

Over the years I have worked off and on on making a science fiction story about the first manned outpost on Mars. This is a bit of a pet project of mine that goes back many many years and is, in a large part, very close to me on a personal level. I got my […]

Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2016

I’ve set myself a goal for this year to not only participate in NaNoWriMo, but to actually create something that will be taken beyond NaNo and revised into a publishable novel. Over the next month I will working my way through a writing class and crafting my NaNo story, at the end of each day […]

NaNoWriMo 2016

After many years of life refusing to give me time to write I am going to dive into a mission of creating 50,000 words during the month of November. Yes, I am participating in NANoWriMo once again. I’m going to be racing along through the month with others from Team HWC.

I’ll be working […]

Define character in writing

I wanted so badly to get started on my character, now that I think I might have Blender working again, that I failed to actually read the first chapter of Game Character Design with Blender and Unity. I created a basic character model sheet for my average goon guard character last night, but when I […]

Shadowlord’s Gambit: Old story – new lead

Last night I was trying to reconstruct a story I had lost somewhere along the years that I gave the working title of Shadowlord’s Gambit. Sitting down with a red pen and a yellow legal pad I started writing out all of the vital scenes I could remember from the original story (written in the […]
