Shaking things up

So what have I been up to?

For those who were following the series of writing technique comments I’ve been making over the last couple of years, as I wrote StoneDragon, you may have noticed the pace of updates has slowed. I think that I’m hitting a new phase and want to shift tempo and focus a bit here. I’m nearly done a second novel, the working title of which is now the First Facet of Magic, a YA fantasy. This is another multi-year project that I’m finally close to feeling is ready for people to see. It’s fast paced and a completely new magic system, so I’m hoping people like it.

So what is changing?

The biggest shift is that I’m going to mix art and writing thoughts on the website now, and be less regular in my posting. Sorry for those that enjoy a steady pace of posts, but at the moment, that doesn’t work with my time, energy, and enthusiasm. I think instead, I will post when I have something cool to share and there may be periods of inactivity. Not from me, but simply on the content (whether I’m busy with something I can’t share or other parts of my life suck me away for some period). I think that this may refresh my creative energy, as posting will be less a task and more a way to share cool things when they happen.

So I think there’s some good news for folks: I will likely produce more art at times, which I feel like people like on the site. But content will be more sporadic and likely arrive in waves. So enjoy it when it comes!
