Writing Process Bloghop

  • Posted on June 24, 2018 at 9:11 pm

The wonderful Chris Votey tagged me in this bloghop, and I’m excited for it to be my reintroduction to the world. I’ve been having an incredibly hard time, that I won’t go into. There’s a lot that lead to my Hiatus, but I’m back! This bloghop really focuses on the how and why of what we write, and I rarely get to talk about that.

Rules:

  1. Introduce who referred the blog tour to you
  2. Answer the following 4 questions:
    1. What am I working on?
    2. How does my work differ from others in its genre?
    3. Why do I write what I do?
    4. How does my writing process work?
  3. Introduce the people you’re passing this on to (3 – 4 people if possible who will then post a week later)
  1. Chris is my mentor and someone who’s struggled a lot in pursuit of his craft. He is an inspiration to me, and someone who really loves the art of writing. Check out his blog, linked above, and learn a thing or two, okay?

2a. I am working on a lot of things, but my main squeeze, my WIP is called Knight of Kuryle. It’s hard to describe what is going on in it. The Story is pretty straightforward, on one side. One of the protagonists is going through the standard hero’s journey, complete with farmer’s son beginning. The other starts the story wanting to kill himself. It all goes downhill from there.

2b. I think my work takes a lot of the normal tropes and turns them on their head. Idyllic fantasy countryside hides a dark secret. Knights journey is the beginning, and not the end. Main character making a deal with the devil. That sort of thing. I’m pretty sure that my work is a little subversive of the main culture of fantasy.

2c. I write what I do because I haven’t seen it in the market, and because I haven’t been able to find and read it. So there’s something great about that, about being able to keep up with something, and allow it to flower like that.

2d. My writing process is… difficult. I have to fight through panic attacks, and anxiety, to sit down and write any words. Then, I have to fight through the same stuff when editing. Then rewrites are just as bad.

  1. I’m gonna tag Robin Noodelman, my associate. She’s an amazing writer, and I don’t think I could have gotten where I am without her encouragement. I’m also going to tag Leo Charles M. because he’s an amazing CP and the world should know his name. ^.^

It’s that time again~! Unfortunately neglected for a long time, my Weekly Writing Update is starting up again! NaNoWriMo kinda knocked me out a LOT. My sleep schedule got fucked over, my writing schedule got fucked over, and for almost two weeks, I couldn’t write a word, not even to get this blog up and running again. But! I am hopefully recovered, and going to start writing again!

New: Weekly Updates!

  • Posted on July 23, 2014 at 5:17 pm

As a dedication to my new career (upcoming) as an author, I’ve decided to do something I’ve seen some of my very favorite fanfiction authors do. It’s a little unorthodox, but at this point, I think that strange might just work for me. Also, it’s a little motivating to have to answer to all of you for a lack of growth in my word counts. Or, at least, I hope it will be!

Thanks to CelynBrum for this idea, by the by. Her fanfictions have made it to novel-lengths, and are enjoyed by thousands of tumblrites, and really, I cannot imagine a better person to follow in the footsteps of. Well, okay, a few (coughneilgaimancough), but who’s counting?

WORD COUNTS

Kurylian Saga: The Sorcerer and The Swordsman – Second Draft – WC: 130,555
