December Mania

NaNoWriMo is finally over. I'm starting to get my brain back in order. It's been tough. The God Jars book 2 is almost half finished, and I'm stumped on a scene. But, it's getting there, and looking awesome. The poor thing was completely fueled by chocolate and caffeine, though. *Pets it*

In other news, Mage of Legend is off to my editor to get spiffy. I can't wait to get the edits back. Everything is so exciting! Ugh.

Now, I'm into December Mania. Christmas presents to wrap. Tree is decorated. It's glorious. Almost recovered from Turkey Coma. Almost finished decorating the rest of my house. No outside decorations this year, but that's because I'm lazy. I'll nab some lights and decorations for my porch when the Christmas decorations go on sale after Christmas ends. I. Am. Ready!

My tree turned out half decent, though:

And no, Harry Potter is not living under my stairs. I gave him the guest bedroom. I'm not an asshole like the Dursleys.

Short stories are hard

I have been wracking my brain to come up with short story ideas. Do you know how hard this is? Every idea I come up with is super involved, and ends up as a novel. I'm still trying, though. I just wanted to keep you updated on how that's going. I want to start getting these in order so I can start giving you the goodies I promised.

What I'm thinking, is character tidbits. Like, little slices of life for each character that's about 1000 to 2000 words each. Cute and fluffy stuff. Or just things that don't fit into the main books. What'choo think?

I'm thinking of starting with Tovran I. Maybe a slice of his life from his point of view during his time watching over Ka'lei during her time in the human world.

If this is something you're gung-ho for, it's on the easy scale for me and I can start with these next Friday until I get some short story ideas that aren't going to balloon into novel ideas. ...I'm so bad. *hangs head*


Alright. That's enough from me this week. Got a favorite character you want to see highlighted in these short slices? Give me a poke by replying to this email, and I'll add it to the list!

Hope your weekend is as awesome as you are. :D Now, off to try and end this Chapter That Will Not End. Wish me luck.

All the best,
