Another rough snip

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 22, 2014 in Writing |

Okay then Rough, it needs scrubbing. I KNOW this….  Mikial’s nickname is Shaderunner fyi  ~*~ The odd hut was divided into three small rooms with a large central fire-pit area. Mikial built up the fire as the women divided making it comfortable. He tried not to notice how closely they watched him, his injuries were […]

Snippet out of the blue

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 22, 2014 in snippage, Writing |

This is from….a project I really shouldn’t be working on. ~*~   The voices of the patrons of the One Winged Angel created a mildly comforting din as they cheered the pit fighters on. Velvet leaned against the bar watching, amused, as her customers yelled, laughed and cheered. She couldn’t see the fighters, but could […]

2014 Goals, Plans, and Expectations

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 1, 2014 in publishing, Writing |

A new year, new goals. I’ve made up a tentative publishing schedule for this new year, starting with the goal of one new publication (large or small) a month with three large releases for the year. We’ll see how it goes. Goals are dreams with a date on them they say. And I’ve even taken […]

2013 Winding Down

Posted by Necia Phoenix on December 25, 2013 in Boost the signal, Real Life, Writing |

2013 is almost over, and I have to say, writing-wise, I didn’t do as much as I’d planned. But what’s done is done and I’m not going to beat myself over the head about it. I’m still writing, and that’s a lot more than a lot of ‘writers’ these days. I’m putting together a 2014 […]

December is here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on December 7, 2013 in NaNo, Real Life, Writing |

Where did the year go? Rhetorical question, I’m not expecting an answer :P. So I did hit the nano words and my brain decided that Dmitri was going to go to sleep and Zander promptly started whispering at me. 0.o Something that I noticed, post nano. I don’t seem to have the post nano brain-dead. […]

Still here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on November 30, 2013 in NaNo, snippage, Teaser, Writing |

I’m very close to hitting NaNo, despite some unexpected shit tossed my way this month. I’ll try to put it into words later, suffice to say this month didn’t go quite as planned. Anyways, would you like a dragon snip? Have I mentioned I lurvs my dragons? 😀 Just remember, this is NaNo rough. It […]

Wednesday

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 16, 2013 in Writing |

It never looks right when I write it out.* I’ve been plugging away on all sorts of things, bouncing around with RL stuff and writing projects that I keep forgetting to get over here to get a post up. SO, projects; Zander book one, roughly done. There are a few things I need to go […]

Epiphany

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 3, 2013 in Writing |

One of my favorite unfinished novels takes place in the Zander world. Titled Velvet and the Shadow, it’s a love story of sorts. One problem I had was that the story fizzled after about… 30 or 40k. The characters kinda fell together too easily. At the time I couldn’t figure out why and I set it aside. […]

How the Myths still affect us

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 1, 2013 in publishing, Real Life, Web Site stuff, Workshops, Writing |

This post was inspired in great part by Kristine Rusch’s post Story Demands. For years I had this dream of publishing the Zander books traditionally. I pictured them on a bookshelf in a bookstore, I would even go to waldenbooks and find where my name was and kinda scoot the books around so there would […]

Newsish stuff

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 21, 2013 in Health and fitness, publishing, Writing |

This past week I landed myself in the ER. It threw my whole schedule off just a wee bit. There have been tests, and phone calls. I don’t know yet what exactly is going on, I’ll be making more phone calls Monday to various financial and dr offices to get answers for multiple questions about […]

Music and the writer – Sunday Serenity

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 15, 2013 in Sunday Serenity, Writing |

I know this isn’t universal, but I find I write best with music playing. But not just anything. I don’t just turn on the radio, or random playlist and let music play. I have playlists. I have theme songs. Certain songs evoke certain moods and make me think of certain stories. My first completed novel […]

Sat Snippery

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 14, 2013 in snippage, Writing |

Wrote this up last night by the light of an oil lamp. Seriously. Long story. First of all, this is pre-story to the Elemental Wars series. This takes place many many many years before any of the other snips (except this one) I’ve done, though a few of the characters who have shown up here […]

Fun Fun

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 11, 2013 in snippage, Writing |

It’s been a long day. An interesting day. With some good, with some bad, and some things I’ll need to work on fixing. So here, have some dragons;   Miranda stared at the ice encrusted mountain. Ice Keep. Traditional home of the Ice Dragons. She settled on the ridge, glad for the clear skies and […]

Some things

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 6, 2013 in Writing |

Take a moment, watch this. As a writer, think about what it is you’re doing.   I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite scene from that movie. As a kid I would sing this song as I led our family dogs through the backyard and into a world of imagination. As I […]
