Get Back Up

Without getting into details, it’s been a long couple of weeks here. I’m not going to say that it hasn’t had its rays of sunlight as well (Captain Marvel – again!!), but there have been some knocks.

It’s been harder to get up and get to writing. I’m still doing it, but I wasn’t working on the book. I’ve been editing a few short stories for circulation. By the time you’re reading this (Thanks for that), I’ll have sent off another story.

But it wasn’t the book.

There was a time where I had started to wonder if, maybe, I was avoiding getting back to it.

Naturally, my first response was that I wasn’t. I had to get these shorts out. There was an approaching deadline for a call for submissions. There’s always something. Still I had started to wonder if I was being honest with myself.

I didn’t have any reason to avoid working on it. In fact, I’ve got several reasons to get it done and get it out there.

Since then, I’ve gotten back to work on it. I am, in fact three days in. I’m not going to give up on the story. I refuse to let it all be for nothing. If the book doesn’t fly, that’s someone else’s decision. It won’t be me deciding to give up on it.

In this job – in life in general – you’re going to take some hits. Some of those may even knock you down.

Get back up.

Even if all you’ve got left is the act of getting up.

The number of times you get knocked down doesn’t matter. Getting back up does.

Focused Work

With as much as I’ve got on my plate these days, I’m always looking for ways to get more done, quicker, etc.

Sometimes, under certain circumstances, I am tempted down dark paths.

I’m talking about Multitasking.

You know what I’m talking about: You do a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a little bit over here and, before you know it, you’ve got your “To Do” list crying for mercy.

Or maybe it’s laughing so hard, it’s crying…

Let me tell you something:

There are only a few places where multitasking really works:

Long-term cooking projects.

Running the dishwasher

Washing or drying the laundry.

Even then, you’re getting by on a technicality. You can’t really do multiple tasks at the same time and expect to make any progress on either task.

That doesn’t mean that the temptation isn’t there, especially nowadays when there’s so much pressure to produce, so many things the need doing, and so many things that I want to get done.

That’s not including figuring out where to fit down-time- which you *do* need.

In the face of that, who wouldn’t want a magic bullet that’ll shoot down multiple tasks at once.

But it never works.

What I’m trying to do is develop the discipline to simply take one task at a time. This includes (and this is the part that’s really hard for me) saying “No,” or “Not today,” or “Not right now,” to things that want to inject themselves into an already busy day.

Now there’s going to be times where you won’t be able to avoid that, and you’ve got to prioritize and focus.

Take a task and work on it to the exclusion of everything else for a solid block of time. Unless I’m going into a task knowing that I’m going to be committing a larger block of time, I like to start working with 15 minute blocks.

For me, this is surprisingly harder than it sounds, especially with a pile of things that are all needing attention.

That’s why this post is going live much later than I’d envisioned earlier in the week. I can get overwhelmed in the face of everything on the task list. My focus scatters and, like this morning, I typed up a few lines of this post, saved the draft, and went off to do something else “for a bit…”

This is a work in progress for me. So much so that, even as I realize that I’m getting close to the end of this post, my mind is wanting to go off to the next task, and I’ve got to reel it in, stay focused until I’m done.

See you on Thursday!

Five Thing Thursday: March 7th.

Welcome, everyone to another installment of Five Thing Thursday and…

Here are Five Things I want you to Know:

Thing #1: It’s March. Now might be a good time (It was for me) to look back at the list of stuff you said that you’d do on January first. Might be that you’re farther along than you thought. Might also be that your priorities have shifted. That’s fine too.

Thing #2: SIX NATIONS RUGBY is this weekend!!! March 9th: Wales V. Scotland. Go Wales!

Thing #3: Captain Marvel launches this weekend! I’ve got plans to go see it on Saturday. Can’t wait!

Thing #4: Every now and again, you might consider going back to visit some of the stories, movies, and music that you remember from your past. Some of may not hold up, this is true, but the stuff that does…

Thing #5: Remember to take time for yourself. This may be me being repetitive but, gods know that, during the week, I fail at this much more often than I succeed.

Adapt

So you’ve all heard that saying that goes: “The only thing that is constant in life, is change.”

For my part, I believe this is a good thing, although it isn’t without cost. Again, for my part, I find that the price often comes in the form of comfort.

Something changes and, suddenly, things aren’t as they were. They’re different, and there’s a period of adjustment while you get used to the new “Normal.”

This winter has been one, big, cold, readjustment for me. The amount of stuff on my plate has increased, and I’m in a state of flux.

So, when change comes, you can do one of three things:

You can resist the change. Not all change is good after all.

You can accept the change, see it as an opportunity to explore and maybe do things differently. Maybe grow a bit.

Or…You can try and incorporate the change, while stubbornly maintaining your own, personal, status quo in spite of things.

Me, I’ve tried to juggle everything at once, and I’ve burnt myself out.

I was happy with the way things were going, and I figured that, if I could manage my time better, it would all work out.

Well, that didn’t work out so well. No matter how well you manage your time, life is still out there, and surprises await.

There will come a time where you’ve got to take stock of where you’re at and where you’re going. Based on those answers, you may have to cut back on the things that don’t do as much for you as they once did.

One time in the past, that was television. This time, it’s shelving an installment of the blog for the time being.

I’m not going to stop posting on Sundays, and I like the idea of the Five-Thing Thursday.

But, as I said on Friday, the Friday Fess-Up part of the blog wasn’t pulling it’s weight. I can put that time to better use.

Of course it’s too early to tell how much (if any) benefit I’m going to get from dropping from three posts a week to two. We’ll see how it goes. Part of it is developing an eye for spotting diminishing returns. Another part is going to require me to be a bit more selfish in that I’m going to articulate what it is that I want (to myself at least) and then do something about it.

Should make for an interesting 2019.

See you Thursday!

Friday Fess-Up: March 1st.

Welcome to another edition of the Friday Fess-Up!

We made it!

I started this feature of the blog to post some kind of recap of my writing week. I did this for two reasons:

The first was to keep myself honest. If I was recapping my writing week, then I had to actually do some writing that week, right? Otherwise I’d have to “Fess-Up” to not getting any work done that week.

The second (and much more important reason) was to show folk, especially those writers like me that may just be starting out, that it wasn’t all 5000 word days every day. That kind of thing is difficult to do even when you *don’t* have a day job to take care of the bills, a family, kids, pets, etc.

It was going to be an unvarnished look showcasing the good days and the bad days.

This week, my problem is that I can’t really recall Monday or Tuesday.

I  mean, I’m pretty sure they happened, and that I was awake for most of both days. I just can’t remember what I did.

I know that I haven’t been getting a lot done. Well, I don’t feel like I’ve been getting a lot done. I’m up every day during the week before sunrise (not on the weekend, though. To hell with that…), and I’m working on revising BRIMSTONE – a short story that will soon be out on Submission.

After that, I dig back into revising JADE MOON WANING.

It might be that I’m revising and not actually making new words that’s causing one day to bleed into the next, I don’t know.

The dark and the cold aren’t helping.

So…I feel like I’m getting repetitive. There are a good reasons for that. The act of writing is repetitive when viewed from the outside.

I get up, I sit down, I write.

I’m not writing the same thing everyday, I’m not revising the same thing every day. But it’s hard to put into words the tiny joys that come along the way.

I don’t want to be repetitive. I don’t think that you want me to be repetitive either.

For that reason, and for a few others which I won’t get into here, I’m going to put the Friday Fess-Up on the shelf for a while.

I’m going to add a bit of what was in this space to the tail end of the Five Thing Thursday posts, and I’ll move part of the rest into the usual Sunday blog post.

Thanks for reading these.

See you on Sunday!

Five Thing Thursday: February 28th.



Welcome, everyone to another installment of Five Thing Thursday and…

Here are Five Things I want you to Know:

Thing #1: The Two Questions With… Blog tour finally has their Happily Ever After (or, at least, Happy for Now)!

You can catch my recap post with all of my questions and answers, plus two bonus questions and answers here.

  • If you’re just seeing this, Welcome! Here’s what we’ve been doing: Every Monday in February we, a small, romantic, group of writers, will tour each other’s blogs and answer questions about writing romance. Stop by often, as the answers are sure to fill you with loving warmth – if not raise your pulse a little…

Who is this lovesick bunch you may ask?

We are:

Myself

Anne Raven

K Bird Lincoln

Janet Walden-West

Be sure to stop by the Events Page for my schedule, and check out the other authors to see what they’ve got in store for you!!

Thing #2: Give yourself time to digest any feedback you get on your work before digging in to revise. There’s no such thing as a story that can’t be fixed, but you need some time to think critically about what *Needs* fixing. Go back, ask questions. Compare it to your vision.

Thing #3: Outside of watching the movie, prior to last Tuesday, I don’t think I’d ever simply listened to the Star Wars Soundtrack. I have mixed feelings about it.

Thing #4: Wales won last weekend!  It was a brilliant match. Next stop: Scotland – March 9th.

Thing #5: Remember: Whatever it is you create, you’re creating it for yourself – First. The creation is part of the joy. Once you put it out into the world, it’s no longer yours. You have no control over how it’s received. Don’t chase trends, they come and go. You will be you for much, much longer.

*Special thanks to Pat Esden for the continued use of the logo she made. The “Romance Edition” changes are my own. Any design brilliance there belongs to Pat. The flaws are, likewise, my own.

Two Questions With (The Romance Edition)…Recap

The Two Questions With… Blog tour is winding down. You will still be able to catch up, or read them from beginning to end on this blog here, and on the blogs of the other writers.

*Every Monday in February we, a small, romantic, group of writers, will tour each other’s blogs and answer questions about writing romance. Stop by often, as the answers are sure to fill you with loving warmth – if not raise your pulse a little…

Who is this lovesick bunch you may ask?

We are:

Myself

Anne Raven

K Bird Lincoln

Janet Walden-West

This, last, time around, what I’m going to do is recap all of the previous week’s questions!

Additionally, because we had so many good questions to begin with, I’m going to include a Bonus Two Questions at the end of this post!

Here were the two questions that kicked off the Blog Tour at Janet Walden-West ‘s website:

Q. What is your favorite romance trope to read; frenemies-to-lovers, second-chance romance, fake marriage, or forbidden love?

A. I’m going to say “Forbidden love.” I often find this trope frustrating, but regardless of whether or not it’s done well, frustration is a part of the game, especially when things like class, or social status get in the way.

From my perspective as a reader, these things seem so nebulous, but they aren’t. Not to the characters, not to the society. Those things are pretty important, and it’s an entertainment all in itself to see how the author goes about working around such things.

When it’s done well, there are several payoffs: There’s the point where they overcome their – and I’m going to call it conditioning here.

They overcome their conditioning and admit that there are feelings there.

There’s the point where they start to act on those feelings.

And there’s the point where they come together, either because the ramifications of such a relationship no longer matter, or the characters come together despite them.

Reading that, there’s a damned intense sense of triumph that I feel on behalf of the characters that is hard to match in other tropes.

Q. What opportunities does writing SF/Fantasy give the romance writer to explore romantic relationships?

A. On a trope level, you know that you’ve got the inevitable journey that the characters have to go on that is a common element of Science Fiction/Fantasy stories. This gives you an opportunity to put these two characters into a place where they can’t, really get away from each other. There’ll be good days, bad days, places where you can see where personalities mesh, and where they grind. You can play around with how each character deals with that.

On a higher level, the author can explore “Crunchier” topics, like interracial relationships, same sex relationships, etc. Sci-Fi and Fantasy make it easy to set the stage and then get down and roll around in all of the trials and troubles that can come with such a relationship, without making it seem like you’re trying to force-feed your reader.

These next Two Questions were from my appearance at K Bird Lincoln ‘s site:

Q. What’s the UF romance trope you wish would just go away: fated mates a la shifter romance or December/May a la vampire?

A. Of the two, I think I’m the most done with the “Fated Mates” trope. That kind of thing has a tendency to take agency away from characters. Why would a character decide that they’d rather be with someone else, when this relationship is “Meant to be?”

It also lets your reader off the hook. They don’t need to worry about IF the characters will get together, they only looking for the WHEN.

Worse, it can lead to more problematic situations where one half of the relationship refuses to take “No.” for an answer. They can be ok with unacceptable behavior, because they are “Fated” to be with the object (and at this point, the other half of the “Relationship” ceases to be a person. They become a prize) of their affections. The ends justify the means…

No they don’t. Not ever.

Q. Slow burn or insta-love?

A. I prefer a slow burn. I think that we’re all familiar with the concept of “Love at First Sight,” and I think – on some level – that we’d all like to experience that. But that, necessarily, cuts out great chunks of storytelling opportunity.

With a slow burn, you get to “See” the magic happen. As you read – and, indeed, as you’re writing – you get to experience that first meeting. You can see the relationship grow from strangers, to acquaintances, to friends, to…something more. If you’re real careful, you can look back and find that one moment. The glance, the expression, that touch where friendship turns to love.

Here are the Two Questions from my appearance at Anne Raven ‘s site:

Q. How do you tackle romantic elements in your writing?

A. Whoo. Up until this most recent manuscript, I hadn’t even tried. Recognizing that as an opportunity to add to my writerly toolbox, I sat down to specifically incorporate romantic elements in this next work.

Here’s what I did: I focused on reading stories that had romantic elements. I talked to writers of romance, picked their brains about how they do what they do. As it turns out, for romances, there is an underlying skeletal structure. It’s not the same for every book, just like my skeleton isn’t exactly like yours.

Now I wasn’t setting out to write a full-blown romance, so I didn’t use the entire structure, but it gave me a reference that I could – loosely use.

During the actual writing, I drew heavily on memory. Granted, the lens of memory loses focus the farther away a memory gets, but I don’t need the detail – I need the feelings associated with those memories.

That’s what I try to get on the page. My internal reactions, mixed with sensory input that the characters are experiencing in their environment.

How does that work?  I won’t be able to tell you until I get my MS back. I hope I stayed true.

Q. When writing fantasy/UF/paranormal romance or any genre really, how important are the romantic arcs, or how much page time do you dedicate to the romance?

A. For me, they are growing in importance. Stories are, at their most basic level, all about people. People fall in love every day. If you’re not including romance or elements of romance in your story, you’re limiting yourself.

Even if the romance isn’t front and center (that would depend on the kind of story you’re writing), it’s still going to need attention. If you’re three quarters of your way through your book and, suddenly, two characters are in love with one another – without you having set down some kind of groundwork for it – you’re asking your reader to accept quite a bit. Maybe more than they’re willing to. Yes, love at first sight can happen, but that’s reality, not fiction. As a writer, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by giving that relationship some page time even briefly.

And here are this week’s two Bonus Questions!

Q. How important is consent during sex scenes?

A. I think this is very important. In going through my MS, I made sure that for every bit of physical contact, someone asked, and someone answered. At least that was my plan. I did read it three times and I thought I found all the instances, but I was still catching spelling mistakes during that 3rd read too. This is what editing is for.

And don’t let anyone tell you different: Consent can be sexy as hell.

I also made sure to realize that cultures can be different and so the rules around consent can be different and how you navigate that (Hint: ASK if IT’s OK. LISTEN to the ANSWER).

Q. Melding the outer action plot and inner romance arc–fun times or cause for day drinking?

A. Speaking as someone who has only just started doing this, I dug it. Granted, it wasn’t a huge part of the story (I didn’t jump in at the deep end of the pool), but it was good to be able to switch back and forth between arcs. I think it definitely added another dimension to the story and to the characters, and it’s something that I’m going to continue to add in the future.

###

And that’s going to do it for the Romance Edition of the Two Questions With… Blog Tour!

I want to take a moment to thank Anne Raven, K Bird Lincoln, and Janet Walden-West for participating in the tour. Please go check out their websites, and put their work in your eyeballs. You won’t be disappointed.

And, Reader, I want to thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed the questions and answers.

For the Fans?

If you know me, you know that I tend to distance myself from any kind of news. Life is hard enough as it is. I don’t need to know about the latest outrage, or just how brightly the trash fire of American society is burning.

It’s a self-defense mechanism.

So for something to “ping” on my radar, it really has to be prevalent.

Kinda Like Ghostbusters 3.

So, yeah, there’s going to be another Ghostbusters movie. And, yeah, director Jason Reitman got into some hot water because of what he said in interviews about “Not wanting to make another ‘Juno’,” and about how he was going to “Put Ghostbusters back in the hands of the fans.”

First, I don’t get the logic behind not wanting to “Make another ‘Juno’.” Juno won the Oscar for best original screenplay, and was nominated for several others. It also made 33.5 times more than it cost to produce.

Sure the scale is different, but why the hell wouldn’t you want to shoot for that?

Then there’s that whole “Back in the hands of the fans,” thing.

What fans is he talking about? Fans of the original movie? Fans of the 2016 movie?

Or is he talking about the “fans” who buried the 2016 movie under waves of sexism and misogynistic vitriol because the leads were female.

I’ve read Reitman’s statement. I’ve read what he said, then I read what he said that he meant, etc.

It’s gotten to the point where I probably won’t see the poorly-titled “Ghostbusters 3” – which should be subtitled, “We forgot about 2016.” – even if someone offered to pay for the ticket.

You know, out of all the things Jason said, here’s one thing that he didn’t say, not once:

That shit needs to stop.

I cannot believe that now, in the 21st century, we are *still* having the argument over whether something has merit based on the gender of who created it.

That shit needs to stop.

Now, maybe, Jason had some good rationalizations for why he didn’t use his platform to shine a light into the darkness and shout:

That shit needs to stop!

He sure as hell doesn’t have any good reasons not to.

And, if you’re one of those people, and you’re reading this…

Stop being one of those people.

You are not being cool.

You are not upholding the “purity” of anything.

You are being wretched.

You are being cowardly.

And you are working to silence so many voices that have so many awesome things to say.

That shit needs to stop.

Friday Fess-Up: February 22nd.

Welcome to another edition of the Friday Fess-Up!

We made it!

So…this has been a week.

I’ve reached the point where – since my manuscript has been in the hands of my Agent and CP – there’s a voice in my head that’s asking what’s taking so long.

This voice’s name is anxiety, and it’s got answers:
Because it’s crap.
They’re struggling to get through it.
They don’t like it (or parts of it) and they’re trying to figure out how to tell you.

All of that is just horseshit.

But it’s there.

So I’ve been drowning that voice in work.

I’ve just sent out a new short story, and I’m working on polishing up another one. I’ve got a third one waiting for me after that.

Physically, this has been a punishing week. I’m not as immortal as I used to be, and the combination of Freeze-Thaw that has been going on has made working outside pretty treacherous. Everything from the waist down is sore, and I’m counting the days until my next chiropractor appointment.

I don’t say this to generate feelings of pity, etc. This is the current reality and, like everything else, this too shall pass.

I mention it because, despite all of that, the one thing that gets me up in the morning is getting back to writing.

Now I’m not going to say that its all butterflies and Unicorns – indeed, at below freezing temperatures, dark, and it dropping some obscene combination of rain/Ice from the sky I’m as like to turn a shotgun on any butterflies or unicorns I find between me and the first cup of coffee.

But It’s the Work, that I always go back to. The stories. They keep me going.

And the greatest thing?

There’s always another one out there.

See you on Sunday!

###

What am  I reading this week?

Gatecrashers by Patrick S. Tomlinson.

How to Save an Undead Life” by Hailey Edwards.

What am I listening to this week?

The Galactic Surburbia Podcast.

How have I been relaxing and refilling the well? The Six Nations Rugby Tournament is back on. The only match that matters is Wales v England.

I really want Wales to win.
Cymru am byth!!
(Pronounced: come-ree am-bith)
Means: Wales Forever!

If you can find them (often the Women’s matches are streamed live), I recommend watching this awesome game.

Outside of a bit of Ruggers, I’m going to sleep. Morpheus is a predatory lender, and he always collects…sooner or later.
