Writing Is Hard Work

Musings of a Hard Working Writer...

A New Direction for the Blog


write a journal

Sometimes I’m just plain tired after a long day of teaching and trying to keep at-risk students in school.

So I hit upon an idea.

I am going to use this blog to vent about my daily writing efforts.  I plan to post something every day I write (I don’t write on Wednesdays or Fridays) as kind of a process for writing book 2 in the “Five Rims” series.

The first book is The Terminarch Plot and can be found by clicking to the right of this text.  I’m currently working on The Terminarch War and am a little over 3500 words in.  Today I kind of hit a wall with the story even though I sort of have the thing outlined, but I haven’t been that serious about it.

The point is that I need to get cracking on an outline, and today I started working on that.  Having a couple of weeks off for Christmas break is wonderful for a writer, that is if you spend that time writing rather than the usual open-gifts-and-run-to-the-store things.

I’ll still post writing tips as they come up, but this way I’ll post almost daily and keep the writing juices flowing, pretty much why I started this blog in the first place.

Oh well.  Back to the novel!  Later, kids.
