Árǽdan Discovery

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

I was looking over Árǽdan last night, getting back to editing it, when I realised that one of the minor characters towards the end of the story has an unexplained mystical skill. I’m leaving it unexplained in Árǽdan itself but it kicked off an idea for another story in the same world that tells the […]

Every Post Fixed

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

Well that was a thrilling hour I’ll never see back I set out to make a teeny change to my blog and ended up editing every post to correct the xhtml I’m going to have to be careful or I’ll need to retitle this blog Too Much Complaining

Mimic Article Makes a Break For Freedom

You may start editing now

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

Started on editing Untitled Fantasy Story today. Despite friends who’ve already read it liking the opening I’m having a problem with it. Starting in media res in a fantasy story without any real background set up is forcing me to info dump later on in the story. I don’t want to use flash backs or […]

So close I can almost type it…

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Almost reached a point where I can type The End. But not quite. Past the 15,000 word mark. Still a few bits to go back and fill in. Just the tidying up left. Then editing.
