Hey there to all you copious notes readers! Just a quick disclaimer that this is a dictated post, so I apologize in advance for any odd grammatical errors. As most of you know, bloggers like to read other bloggers blogs. It almost becomes an ecosystem where the people who read your blog of the peoples… Continue reading Trying to Keep up With the Ecosystem
Happy Tuesday and happy September everyone! I figured I should get this out of the way right now: Research sucks!! There, I said it. Oh my god, I cannot believe how annoying and tough research for a book could be. Of course, I’m talking about my beloved Spirit Hackers and my work on re-writing the… Continue reading Frakkin’ Research!
I am thoroughly convinced I need to break out my Zero T-Shirt and parade around my house and office declaring my lazyness. Excluding last week’s free write I haven’t put a word down on paper since June 23rd. I will say what all of you are probably thinking: THIS IS PATHETIC!!! I’m a writer who… Continue reading I’m Your Zero
Hello Copious Notes readers! I bring you this early Tuesday post to let you all know that I am *still* trying to get my body back into the groove of the real life, consisting of work and little time at home. Briefly, my weekend was long and I discovered first-hand that the streets of Boston… Continue reading Out Of Sync

I left off yesterday’s entry with… Continue reading Goodbye Writers Group: Round 2

I figure that I’ll just state the facts and then proceed to give my opinions lower down, for people who want to know more if you’re interested. So here goes: I have been kicked out of my writers group. The story, from my… Continue reading Goodbye Writers Group
My writing has still been non-existant and I believe I haven’t written a single word in almost a month. Of course I can attribute this to some reasons and even make excuses about my move. Yes they are valid but only to a point. I will say that the two of the past three weeks… Continue reading When the Drive is in Neutral
Mars has been a struggle for me and I have not written much in the past few months that it’s been in the works. For the first time ever, I actually created an outline, so I had an idea of where to go and to make the story flow better. Now, I don’t know if… Continue reading Outline Rewrite?
My untitled story has troubled me in the sense that I have never had problems naming my stories. My struggle has always been with character names but not so in this novel nor in Mars. I have just been referring to it as the untitled story and even the file itself on my computer is… Continue reading The Elusive Title
