Schools out!

The summer vacation season is in bloom! Kids everywhere!

Good thing I like to write at 5 a.m. Mmmmmmm coffee.

I'm hamming away on Book II of the series. It's coming together nicely. We've had a murder and our good hero has entrenched himself deeply into the local wizard politics. 6000+ words this week!

Such a weird juxtaposition when most of my day involves Pokemon cards, Legos, and bike rides.

This might be the year my family enters the world of RPGs.

Yah, this blurb was short and sweet, but I've got to get back to the shores of Lake Superior!

Letting the Inspirations Happen

Hi everyone!

Well, the first week of NaNoWriMo is winding down and I'm hitting the marks (so far!). It's been a very writer-y (Dave English) year. Looking back at last year's NaNo, I've come to realize that I have put together three novels / novelettes.

This has been the year for me to 'put it on paper'.

Not just the planning and the copious number of notebooks and Word files.

Write it! Has been my mantra. I've been preaching this at my bi-monthly Writer's Block down at the Niederkorn Library and (up to 2017) and personally, I've had varying degrees of success at that myself.

This year has been different.

The question is 'why?'.

The big thing is that I've moved from keeping my structure and research in various places, shifting to putting all research and planning down in the document that will (eventually) become my final edit. One-stop writing, as it were.

The other big thing is that I've been open to any and all things that inspire…

About ducks, rows, and the business of writing...

I think I need an agent.

The past week has been one of organization and planning. The Gencon events unlocked on Sunday, allowing me to FINALLY get into those games and writing seminars!

I've spent an hour or so each day doing deep research on various agents and editors to approach with my work.

This blog was set up, along with a bit of personal 'house cleaning' to organize my workspace and calendar.

I put together a list of readers for my book drafts.

With the white noise and sense of business responsibilities looming all around, I rifled through my writing and managed to really get those notes in order.

I suppose I should get into the meat of those notes and get that writing done!

Yep. I need an agent. Can't fill the shelves if you spend all week building the store!
