Happy December everyone. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) has concluded, but one of my November activities on that book continue. It’s a good thing I’m a life-gime learner. Even though I have decades of writing and editing experience, I still enjoy study and research. I thought I’d share some of the writing related videos I enjoy.
The presentation is good in this one from Karl Iglesias. He shares a few quick tips about dialogue.
Meanwhile back in the Teagan-verse, I continue to flesh out my November novel… and The Delta Pearl too… and get Thistledown ready to publish very soon. Although, I’m not sure what having my head in three vastly different worlds will do to my brain.
Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam
Have you ever imagined yourself as a whimsical, magical entity?
Do any of these names perhaps ring a bell with you – Blossom Stargazer, Carver Eastdoor, Poppy Songbird, Peaches Dragonfly or her cousin Pick Dragonfly? What about Skypainter Morning, Calico Rainbowforest, Catseye Glimmer or his cousin Crescent Glimmer?
Maybe you feel a strange affinity when you hear the name Field Yewwasp, Fleur Thistle, Glitter Shimmerling, Satellite Frostbite, Fallow Blackmoon, River Mindshadow, Willow Rainbow, or Willow Stargazer?
If you remember flying around Thistledown with me when it was a serial here, maybe you will reblog my launch for the book version? The book will be ready within a couple of weeks. Please let me know.
Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is a set-your-imagination-free, wildly whimsical story. However, it has a dark undercurrent. There are “big” adult words, but it could be read to small children. With that in mind, I describe it as a tale of faeries written for grownups, but suitable for children of all ages.
Wishing all of you a happy December. Hugs on the wing!
