Half-formed plot idea

Posted by E Halsey Miles on November 30, 2005 - 9:51am.

So late at night when I can't sleep, part of what happens it that my brain will get revving in directions I'd rather be doing in the day, but often the distractions of just being awake prevent my brain from revving like that when I can make use of it.

Over the course of the last week or two, this one particular one has popped back into my head a couple of times, and demanded that I do something with it... ( read more )

A piece of writing for MoronLife

Posted by E Halsey Miles on October 24, 2005 - 9:45am.

While I need to preserve this here on the site, MoronLife isn't going away within the next few weeks so I will simply wait on that. Still, it's worth mentioning here to get people to read it, both to advertise my own stuff (heh, such a beggar for attention I am) and to advertise MoronLife which has a lot of funny to its credit, and my article there is probably not even in the low-average class of the funny that can be had on the site!

Still, it is a decent article I think. ( read more )

While it is superfluous to post it here, as everyone who reads this blog also reads other places that I've already mentioned it, it is worth posting here because it is related to the topic, which is writing. (And in this entry, writing poorly.)

AssignBlame has officially launched. And needs authors. Thanks!

Things have changed from back burner to serious on Cracks in the Window and I now have a deadline on finishing it, at which point I will get a critique from an agent.

As exciting as this is, this is not the same thing as actually submitting it for publishing, but it does mean I get an agent (who is contracted by the authors I am most closely associated with) to critique at least a little bit of my work and provide positive feedback on making my writing publishable.

Leading into this I'm actually having someone else critique it in advance of the critique which seems to be, in programmer speak, many layers of abstraction, since none of these have the end result in having a publisher look at it. ( read more )

Efforts continuing Apace

Work continues on the card game I mentioned in my last post. We've had several playtest games now, and I've made a whole host of changes. A few wrinkles stubbornly don't iron out, but I imagine they'll be ok once I work out the nature of the actual problem.

Between that and general life, I've not had a great deal of free time for other pursuits. I'm not terribly good at time management, unfortunately. It's something I'd like to get better at, but I have not yet been successful. It will eventually be my undoing, I am certain.
