After two+ weeks at my new job, June has flown by. Finding time to write, work out, spend time with the baby, and do all the other things I want to do is harder than ever, but I think I’m doing alright. Continue reading “July Write Day: Finding A New Routine”
With all of the narrative shifts, outlining, and pondering I’ve done about The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy and related stories recently, I wanted to revive my world-building series.
And boy was I shocked to find that I haven’t written an Exploring Úr’Dan post in over a year! Here’s a refresher for all of us (myself included) of the fantastical ground we’ve covered previously:
- Úr’Dan: Exploring the Alternate Universe (general intro)
- The Hundred Teeth
- The Arrowhead
- The Rainflow Valleys
- The Western Uplands
- Brief History of the Northern Migration
May turned out to be an interesting month, although the first half is a blur to me. Honestly, most of the good parts happened in the last two weeks.
We had a nice weekend at the family lakehouse, where our son was baptized by his great-uncle the pastor. The baptism itself was a nice at-home affair, and was more about the family gathering than anything else. It also served as a great excuse to go boating and lounge in the sun, two of Teddy’s favorite activities (see above). Continue reading “June Write-Day: Summer is Looking Up!”
I did not write very much in April. I honestly cannot tell you what I was doing instead of writing.
I applied for a bunch of jobs. We road tripped around Lake Michigan for 10 days, and then… Awesome Con. Writing was completely lost in that mix, but it was still a great month overall.
March felt like a long month, likely because I spent much of it at home. I am still unemployed, but I was able to use my wide-open schedule to make some legitimate progress on The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy.
But how did my other goals for the month fare???? Find out, next! Continue reading “April Write Day: Progress at Last”
We have reached another month, and that means that, on this first Friday, it’s time for a writing update.
Notice the new title card? I kind of like the idea of switching up the photo each month, as a sort of thematic gesture. Continue reading “March Write-Day: The New Routine is Up and Running”
In my last Friday Write-Day post two weeks ago, I mentioned how I might change up the format of this once-weekly post to both challenge myself and provide some more unique content on RSPC.
I thought about a bi-weekly update for about a minute, until I realized that nothing outside of paychecks are scheduled fortnightly, and scheduling my blog in that manner would be ridiculous.
So now it’s monthly. On the first Friday of each month, I’ll update ya’ll on my writing progress from the previous month and talk about my goals for the new month. I’ll have a new title card for this monthly series next month. Continue reading “February Write-Day: Now We’re Doing This Monthly”
Well, week one of my three-week paternity leave is just about done. I’ve been enjoying my time with the little guy, as always. Except today, he spit up all of the formula he had eaten just minutes before, nailing my shirt, his shirt, my pants, and his pants. Then, when I went to change him, he peed all over himself.
This week has been interesting, if a little off-center. My mom has been babysitting Nugget all week. She lives in my hometown, which is just about equidistant between my house and my office. My wife’s place of work is int he complete opposite direction.
So guess who’s been dropping off and picking up Nugget every day? Continue reading “Friday Write-Day: A Taste of a New Routine”
So January is here, guys. I feel like I was well aware of this three days ago, but some little gremlin flew in on his RC plane and took that kernel of knowledge from my brain, and I’ve just know re-remembered it.Continue reading “Friday Write-Day: In which I Forget What Month It Is”
