This is my second round of major edits, and I'm laying out what I plan to do next based on some feedback from my Beta readers and brainstorming with one of my closest friends. The first image is from Scrivener: The first round of edits are typed … Continue reading Just a Sneak Peek
Many, apparently. I cleaned my desk so I could work on revising more, and here's a peek: The stacked file trays are new, and I'm using them to sort feedback/different drafts of my novel: Top level is current draft, next my Alphasmart Neo, then supplies for revising, then feed back from an Alpha reader, then … Continue reading How Many Copies of My Novel Do I Need?

(I follow the newsletter posts from the original owner of this site, not the junk that they advertise on the website.) The Fitness Marshall channel is dance exercise, and it's a lot … Continue reading ITJFU: The Fitness Marshall YouTube
Finally bought the bow I wanted in Guild Wars 2! I've coveted the Kudzu bow for several years, and now I have it! Take a look at those cherry blossoms: It shoots golden arrows that hit in explosions of flowers, and when I run I leave flower footprints behind me. Here's a close up of … Continue reading Kudzu
