All Done

Okay, I’ve done several “last” editing passes on the Journey of St. Laurent. I’m pretty happy with the end result. Also, if I don’t quit now, I’ll never finish editing it. Over the next couple of days I’m going to password protect the posts that make up the final 2/3 of the first draft. Within […]

Another Editing Update

I finished going over Dane’s suggested edits a little while ago. He helped me out tremendously. Go buy his books. I cut a ton of fat from the story. Like 20,000 words worth. The book just came back from yet another editor, who was searching for typos and major inconsistencies. It should only take a […]

What’s happening?

Here’s what’s going on in my world recently. I may not have been posting here, but I’ve been staying busy. I’m on Chapter 52 of my “Journey…” edits. The end is in sight! I’m about 3/4 done writing the kid’s book. I think. My daughters ask me every night if I’m ever going to finish […]

Progress

Okay, I’m about a third of the way through editing “The Journey of St. Laurent.” I’m having a good time slashing stuff left and right. Don’t worry, though, there’ll be new fiction on here soon. I’ve got all sorts of stuff on the horizon. In the meantime, if you haven’t picked up a copy of […]

Update

Okay, I finally wrote THE END for The Journey of St. Laurent. The final chapter will go up on Friday. I’ve got a pile of short stories and other stuff that need to be written now. And of course I need to go back and make all the sweeping changes I’ve been thinking about. And […]

Time to Wake Up

This morning I got a wake up call. Not the kind that gets you out of bed, mind you. This was the metaphoric kind. Although it was still on the phone. My long-time internet writing buddy J. Dane Tyler (aka DarcKnyt) was afraid that I had fallen off the face of the Earth, so he […]

It’s been a long time…

(photo credit) …since I won a fighting competition. I think the last time was before my first daughter was born. It was a local Karate tournament, and I took 1st place in my division (& totally ruined a buddy’s perfect undefeated season ). Well, I did it again, although this time it was a very […]

Writing Fail

Sorry, I know you must be sad, but I was not able to polish up a chapter to the point where I thought it good enough to post. I could give you some lame excuse about my currently insomniac 18 month old (not pictured above), but you don’t want to hear it.

The Secret Project

You know how I’ve been going on and on about some mysterious ‘secret project’? I’ll bet you thought that project was code for “Bryce is too lazy to write anything.” I don’t blame you. I would have thought the same. However, I’m getting close to a public beta, so I think it’s time I spill […]

Back from vacation.

If you ever get the chance to drive long distances through Wyoming during winter when the winds pick up, my advice is this – avoid it. Two nights ago I was in Rawlins, WY. Temperatures were in the negatives with wind bursts of over 45 mph. How do those people live like that? They must […]

New Theme Ironing

Well, this is pretty much the new theme. I know I’ve still got to iron out a few kinks. If you see anything that looks particularly weird or something that is broken, please let me know so that I can fix it up. Basically, I wanted the theme to appear simpler and focus on the […]

Weekend & Prepping the Test

My wife’s grandmother passed away late last week, so she packed up the girls and headed for Seattle. You’d think I’d be able to get more writing done over the weekend. Oh, well, I was busy extracting honey from my beehives, texturing a ceiling, and I had a bunch of church responsibilities on Sunday, plus […]

Crash

Ick. Well, it looks like the motherboard to my computer is fried. That makes me unhappy. At least I’ve been good about backups. You know what else makes me unhappy? The government. Seriously. Recently, President Obama (or at least whatever staff member has keys to the account) tweeted the following: A vote against the DISCLOSE […]
