I’m working on getting back into the rough draft of Oni the Lonely. I got a bit more than 15 K words in last time, Continue reading
Brain is stressed, so I’m letting my bunnies play around with the MDZS/Valdemar crossover idea again. Part of doing a good crossover is making sure nobody’s Awesome gets stepped on or underrated. Continue reading
Plotbunnies. Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em….
Chapter 16 of The Cursed Winter in the Friends Across Borders series starts off with an interesting bit about necromancers in Karse. My bunnies, the crossover fiends that they are, started cackling about dumping Wei Wuxian (“Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”) into Velgarth. Continue reading
Sometimes if you’re tired or under the weather, your brain comes up with ideas you really don’t have the time or motivation to write. Or at least not to invest the research you’d need Continue reading
Yes, my plotbunnies are careening into and out of ideas like spiders given caffeine. The past month has been… extremely stressful, even by my standards. So given the choice between banging my head against the wall and not writing anything, or jumping into new (or, as in Whispers, much older) stuff and getting something written each day, I’m taking the writing option.

It’s possible to sabotage your story by focusing too hard on your worldbuilding.

My nerves are still in twitch mode. We’ve had letters and people falling out of the woodwork, in some cases related to persons none of us have seen in over a quarter of a century. (And still don’t want to see. It’s safer that way.)
So rather than push things on Track and risk screwing it up horribly, I’m frankly writing anything my brain is willing to handle. Continue reading
Sometimes a plotbunny isn’t.
For a couple days now, my brain has been taunting me with, “Hey, what if the BUILD DiVERS from Re:Rise met Log Horizon?” Continue reading
One bag of clothes for recycling.
One Adirondack chair and footrest. Continue reading
I’d put this at 4.5 out of 5 stars. Kazami’s glory-hounding is a bit much sometimes… but then, in the early eps the four players still think it’s all a game. Parviz, May, and Hiroto more than make up for it, character-wise. Continue reading
