Talking today about how "networking" is truly making friendships and supporting each other. Updates on THE ORCHID THRONE and THE ARROWS OF THE HEART, too.

I'm back at work today - and talking a bit about my days off, including separating irises AND how to give them away to your friends. I also give updates on progress on THE ORCHID THRONE, THE ARROWS OF THE HEART and give the scoop on the upcoming SEASONS OF SORCERY. To read the back cover copy for THE ARROWS OF THE HEART, look here: https://sffseven.blogspot.com/2018/09/coming-soon-arrows-of-heart.html

I've finished THE ORCHID THRONE revisions and have been refilling the well - talking about downtime after work, reading, editor brain, and how annoying it is when movie monsters won't die.

Taking a walk today with Jackson, a preemptive strike against his autumn restlessness, and talking about the domestication of cats and dogs (as one does), along with worldbuilding and perfectionism.

Talking today about knowing where a story starts and how that can be difficult, along with taking critique in general. I mention Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey and answer a question from a listener on Exile of the Seas. The morning glory photo is a bit out of focus, but I love how the throat looks full of light.

Our topic this week at the SFF Seven is The Book You Didn’t Want to Read and Ended Up Loving.

This was kind of difficult for me to answer, because most of the books that spring to mind when I cast back and try to recall which I didn’t want to read are the ones I ended up hating. If I ended up loving them, I kind of forget that initial pain. Like childbirth.

But I finally settled on HEART OF DARKNESS by Joseph Conrad, which I had to read for AP English senior year of high school. The edition above is the one I read – and still have. I know a lot of you hate it, but come on over to find out why it was pivotal for me.

Talking today about revisions for developmental edits on THE ORCHID THRONE, and revisions in general - what to cut, how to know, the importance of post-production. I mention the somewhat inaccurate adage that commands writers to kill their darlings and Ann Patchett's advice on clearing the pipes by writing lots of words. Here's the article I mention on How the Original Star Wars Was Saved in the Editing Room https://www.themarysue.com/star-wars-saved-editing-rocketjump/

Today is the release of EXILE OF THE SEAS, so I'm mostly talking about that, release days in general and why they're on Tuesdays, finishing THE ARROWS OF THE HEART and a bit about Georgia O'Keeffe. As one does.
