Yep, last week’s trip to the cottage turned out to be a mistake.

I so cooked off my noodle from the stress and moving back and forth I’ve done no writing since, and I’m pretty ticked off about it.  It was a titanic effort to get that stuff out that I did put out, and I’m still not happy about it.  But tonight, I’m back to the grindstone I think.  I realize part of what had me unable to write, outside of exhaustion was I didn’t like how I got my main characters into the mess to start with.  I had some brilliant bits before and after, but that naughty little in between portion… oooh!

So frustagating!

Stir fry… because that’s how my brain felt for a week now. Tasty tasty chopped up ideas.

But, last night, I finally calmed down a little at work because I had time to turn around and think for a minute or three, and so I found the flaw, and now know better how to split up my protagonists, drop one in the soup and leave one helpless and needing to be rescued.

I hope y’all are liking the timeline.  Another one will be coming next week once I get back to making the late week post the creative post and the early one more biographical.

Anyway, on a side note, while I’ve let my brain cool, I’ve been playing lots of Guild Wars 2.  Yeahhhhh… we’re kinda hooked.  I’m part of one guild, but am toying with doing a game stream and starting a small guild of my own now that I have a level 80 character to run with.  Anyway… Could be fun.  We’re still contemplating.

That’s all for now.  Maybe there will be a surprise post later, I dunno.  Depends on how my writing goes this weekend.

Toodles for now.

Filling in the Gaps

As I said earlier, I’ve some more content to add for your reading and viewing pleasure.

My Library has grown as I’ve added 5 short stories.  They are all Mechwarrior Online fan fiction and Seraphim lore, but I like em, and it has been fun to re-read some of the stories myself.  I’d forgotten what and how I wrote some of these, so it’s a fresh look for me, and that’s something really nice to get.  As a writer, you never get to see your own work through the eyes of someone who never saw it before.  That’s the one sad thing about creating a story.  You never get the thrill of discovery.  So go check out the short story section in the Library.

Time SlingerI’ve added to my Studio/Theatre 9 of my gaming videos.  (Go ahead and check out my youtube channel for over 50 different gaming videos!) I have a lot of fun doing these.  To be honest, it’s made me wonder if I should put up weekly events for “playing with the author” to those interested in joining me in a few hours of gaming together.  Of course, as it sits, I’m only playing World of Warships and DCUO.  But who knows?  That might change in the coming months with some of the new games that are scheduled to come out.  Regardless, it must be balanced versus working on my writing and my job.

I have, as you can see, very little time to finish editing if I am to meet my Independence Day deadline for you beta readers.

A New Era

 

With only a little fanfare, I hereby announce the maiden voyage of my Author’s Blog.

Welcome to Resonant Point.  It is the intent of this blog to showcase my artistic endeavors and give followers who wish to share in the journey towards becoming a published and successful author.

My goal is to write one post a week to start off.  This may of course become more as I am supplanting my Facebook habit by posting here.  This keeps my artistic world separate from my personal world of friends and family with whom I speak of other unrelated subjects.  I’m a complex little pirate.

The main topics featured here will be:

  • My writing projects (Akiniwazi, short stories, essays, other fiction & commentary)
  • Any future artwork that I produce.
  • Any videos I produce
  • Gaming (which is the source of my videos currently).

So, welcome.  Glad to have you here, and look forward to giving you the ins and outs, ups and downs of this adventure.
