Not posting but writing

I haven’t been posting much here lately because, well, summer. Also, I’ve been busy writing while I’m waiting for the edits of the third Cross book, The Apocalypse Ark. I’ve written the first drafts of three new stories, and I’m working on a fourth right now that I’m really excited about. So you will be seeing new words from me in a bit!

If you’re at all interested in my writing process when it comes to stories, I usually write a first draft of something, let it sit for a month or two, then come back to it. Sometimes that time gives me ideas of how to refine or develop things, other times it gives me ideas how to completely rework the story. I think it’s really necessary to look at things with a fresh eye, when you’re not exhausted from the writing process itself, to see the strengths and weaknesses.

And, of course, sometimes those breaks give you time to see how you can turn a story into a novel….
