April-June in my monthly newsletter, I shared a short story I had written based on characters and world from The Book Book. Now that several months have passed, I thought I would share it here on my blog for those of you who aren’t subscribed.
This coming month, October, I will be releasing Chapter 1 of ‘Justice: a Short Story about Milo Praeven’. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out on meeting the other main character in the Book Book.
I haven’t written in so long! I hope you won’t view me as a fair-weather author who only writes when the inspiration flows, but life has been quite busy. This month, rehearsal for Scarlet: The Outlaws of Nottingham, a musical written by me and my husband – which I am directing – began and it has been a whirlwind. Four-hour-long rehearsals twice a week, with nine-hour-long vocal recording session every Saturday. Add in all of the planning, preparing, and e-mails and I’ve got a part time job with the show alone.
I have been squeezing in whatever writing I can outside of Scarlet, commission work, and trying to keep the house in some sort of order, so it comes in bursts: a couple hundreds words here in the Book Book, a chapter or scene edit for the Varken, banging out some lyrics for our current musical project.
Directing is certainly stretching and growing me in a lot of ways.Read More »
I’m in desperate need of blogging. I have had so many sewing commissions of late, which is great for our budget, but not for writing. However, I have continued to edit The Varken so no fear there! Also, the 2nd chapter of Bronze was sent out in this month’s newsletter. If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, you are missing out! It’s a fun, 3-chapter, short story that is a backstory (kind of) for The Book Book!
