Surprise! Amazing I know, but yes… I’m back again with an update. It’s probably going to be short but it’s an update.
I’m trying to put all my blog updates onto a schedule this fall so that I don’t end up with one blog having updates all the time, while my other blogs stand lonely and, more or less, dead. If, and I really stress that if, things go according to what I’ve worked out for myself, then you should see at least one update a week here on Inside My Mind. Actually you should see about an update a week on my reviews blog and my other writing blog too.
[Me? I’m keeping my fingers crossed…]
About that other writing blog I mentioned… Becoming Dawn is a new blog that I’ve started that is going to showcase the contemporary writing that I plan to do – it may be romance, mystery, suspense or just plain old fiction (which, let’s be honest, includes all of the aforementioned aspects). Because that writing will contrast somewhat sharply with what I generally write I’ve decided to write it (and publish) using a penname. To see more on this, or to find out what I’ve got going in that direction please feel free to visit Becoming Dawn anytime.
For the writing that I talk about here and whatever I may showcase or spotlight here on Inside My Mind, I will continue to use Lacey Ferris, or LD Ferris. It’s just easier for me to separate that which I write as fantastical from that which I write as reality if I ‘separate’ the authors’ identity. Even if I and everyone else know that they are actually the same person.
So what did Lacey write this week? Hhmm… She wrote this blog. Which granted isn’t much but I’ve had kids going back to school, extra-curricular’s to organize and schedule, and started on a cleaning sweep through the house. Exciting, huh? LOL – I was sort of a boring but busy woman this last week, and everything that I was doing seemed to revolve around someone else. This next week is mine though… right?
I am diving back in to The Gifted soon though. So, realistically I should have another one or two character profiles that I could put up soon. (Click here to see the first of the character profiles for The Gifted.) And I’ve been thinking of trying to scour through celeb pictures online to try and find faces that come close to what I’m seeing in my mind. I haven’t decided whether I want to do that yet though because I’m always scared that I’ll slack at describing them because I’m thinking to myself ‘it’s the girl/guy in the picture.’
I’m still working on the edits for The Chosen too. That story is by far the most done and closest to being complete. It still has a ways to go but with a good 60,000 words I have it at that point where it’s comfortably uncomfortably waiting for me. I’m going to have to turn my focus back to it soon though, I think, because I actually had another dream about my characters there and what they’re telling me now is something slightly different from how we began. I’ll manage to straighten it out though, I always do.
And Immortals is merely waiting for me. Once I get some more out of Gifted and Chosen though it’ll be full bore ahead on this one, especially since it was only meant to be novella length in the first place. And yes, my immortals are growing as impatient with me as my witches and shape-shifters are.
Can’t you hear them yelling?
“Hurry up and tell the bloody story Lacey!”
I guess I better listen.
Talk to you again soon… (next week if all goes according to my plan!)
Tootles! Lacey :-)
