A Fantasy in Darkness
Check out more from my Embracing Darkness series. Darkness consumes me in its obsidian, a welcome relief from the blinding light of day. It wraps me in its coldness, and I let it. A black veil draws closed another day, and here, in my stillness, I have only myself. I am free, yet Darkness trapsContinue reading “A Fantasy in Darkness”

Plotting World Domination!
I’m in plotting (well, re-plotting) my Starlighters novels. It’s going well, mostly. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. But what I’m pondering it scene order. I have already planned the POV carefully based on each scene. Now I have to decide the best order. Some things happen simultaneously in different POVs, andContinue reading “Plotting World Domination!”
