Quiet Day

So I’m sitting here looking out the window while I type this. Ok, that’s not entirely true. I can’t not look at the keyboard when I’m typing. I’m not that good of a typist. It’s the middle of October, unseasonably warm, grey, and windy as hell. The hummingbird feeder is turning a slow circle – …

Otherworldly Folk

Hi All! For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on the world building for a new project. The new shiny is a space opera and I’ve been having fun creating a couple of different alien species, and that’s what I want to talk about this week. Now I didn’t call this post “ALIENS!!!” …

Friday Fess-Up for October 5th

Characters Part 2

In a previous post, I shared a bit about what goes on when I’m creating a character. I can’t say that I’m surprised to find that the process has changed a little bit. I’m still doing the character sheet, but there have been a few tweaks along the way. For example, I got rid of …
