The Midnight Society, the second in the GHOST ZERO series is available as a kindle book now! In this book, Eddie Quick has to fight a group of ghostly vigilantes who plan to end all crime..by broadcasting the Word of Death!  Can Eddie get out of this one alive OR dead? I should get a print proof in the mail today, so it should be available soon as well.

Thoughts about the creative habit, and when that habit can go bad.
Do you know what wins in life? It's not talent, it's consistency. I wasn't born rich, but we have a budget, stick to it, and we do okay. I'm not a great artist, but I keep doing art, and I get better...

I agree with what you say, and it's a daily writing habit I'm having to cultivate for myself now, since otherwise I just won't get any decent writing of any length finished.

It's a little problematic for me in some respects as I work late on alternate Wednesdays and half a day on alternate Saturdays.

I also have to take time out as a carer for my elderly mom, who needs a lot of help.

All this means I've had to pull out of a lot of other things which I've been involved with for years.

But c'est la vie - it's a writer's life for me!

I'm writing the first draft of a young adult, supernatural, pulp novel (Ghost Zero: Spookshow).  Keeping with the idea that the job of first drafts is just to finish the thing, I wondered....do any of you share chapters of the first draft with anyone, or do you keep them to yourselves until some revising is done?

+Dave Flora I have a couple beta readers, and so I was already posting to Google drive for them, but that's private obviously. A couple friends also wanted to see, so I thought I would just throw it up on the website. I'm going to keep posting until the very end. I may or may not withhold that. We're you able to take a look?

I'm not sure how many of you out there have read Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files", but I consider it super fun, pulp fiction.  He's posted a blog about how he writes and creates characters, which I've linked to below.  His ideas of "Scene" and "Sequel" were particularly useful to me.  Enjoy!

Oh, I agree, they get better with every book, but I feel that you need to keep in mind Storm Front was his first book.

Let's see...I gave away nearly 900 copies of the book, which resulted in exactly 8 sales, so far (5 days).  Nothing stellar, but I hope to get some reviews from the copies I gave away, and perhaps get the story in front of people who would not otherwise have read it.  I'm hard at work on book 2 of the series and will have paperbacks of the book out later this week, probably.  My goal is to keep writing until I have a stable of books, several in the Ghost Zero story-line and at least a trilogy of Doc Monster books.  Should be fun!

I thought this was an interesting technique to hammering out a plot in some quick steps.  Just a rough outline, but I can see how it would let you put up some plot guideposts quickly...
