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. ^.^

Weekly Writing Update – 08/14/14

  • Posted on August 16, 2014 at 12:56 am

Another week has passed, and with a harrumph rather than any kind of music. As I am now biking to and from work, my legs have put out a hit on me, in an attempt to put me out of my misery. While dodging ninja assassin attacks, I’ve managed to write some! Not on traditional things, unfortunately, but I’ve also managed to READ some! Which is amazing.

You may not know this, but if you are in debt to your library for five or more dollars, they won’t let you check anything out. After paying fifty dollars plus in back fees, I’m finally back in good with the library! *tincan laughter* No, but seriously, I am ecstatic about this. Alright, but here you go:

The Day Robin Williams Died

  • Posted on August 11, 2014 at 10:21 pm

Today, I found out grave news. Robin Williams is dead. A comedian, an actor, a legend, and he died. To be completely honest, it felt like the passage of some great age. It reminded me that anyone, at any time can die. It reminded me that death is the only certain thing in this world. And it reminded me of immortality, and all the ways we can acheive it.

Robin Williams touched millions of lives. More than he ever knew. And the man, that poor, poor man, was suffering silently inside, maybe for years. Who knows how long he fought off the demons of his mind, telling him it was better to end it now. To get out. To be done. I know how hard it is, to have those demons whispering in your ear. Depression is a serious illness. One that doesn’t have a cure. One that stays with you forever. Robin Williams was bipolar, and part of bipolar is depression.

Thinking about how he died, thinking about what he must have gone through… Makes me wonder, just a little, what I’m doing all of this for. What I want to be a writer for. What I want from life. It makes me think that maybe, just maybe, my goal is selfish. My goal has always been to be a household name. I want to be immortal, in the only way humans can achieve.

But if someone like Robin Williams can feel that that isn’t enough… What is it that I will find, once my goal is achieved? Once I have the recognition I crave, once my books are on the english highschool reading list, or on Oprah’s reading list, or whatever it takes, what will I have? Hearing Mister William’s story, reminds me of one of his quotes.

I am lucky. Because I have friends who love me. I have family that cares. I am lucky, and I hope, forever, that I am lucky, and do not fall to the same temptation and fear that Robin did. He was a great man, and it is so, so sad, that he suffered as he did. I hope, sincerely, to ever be able to touch as many hearts as he did. And I hope, that like him, I use it for good. To make others laugh. To make them smile. To help them learn. Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. You will always be in our hearts.
