War Poet Update

War Poet, my sequel to The Bardess of Rhulon is nearly complete. So much action, romance, demons, magic, and trauma await our favorite bardess in War Poet. I hope to have the novel complete before the end of summer. I have been editing as I go ( attention nitpickers who shout don't do that, mind your own books).  I have a system that works for me. Rules apply to writing habits only if they are useful or helpful.  

My Writing Process 

You've know those lovely writing vlogs by authors on YouTube or on their websites? The ones with polished writers sitting with their laptops with groomed hair and cute outfits, sipping tea? I am not one of them. Sigh. I wish I were. When I am deep in writing mode, I resemble a short goblin in a hoodie,  hunched over my computer  with smudged mascara. Coffee or tea is there, with emergency cookies (they are essential to the writing process).  Writing is not glamorous. It only appears that that way in publicity shots. I love writing. It makes you feel good when you are creating a great character or tale.  But it is gritty business. 

More to come later. Good writing until then.
