blurb blurb blurb. blurb blurb. blurb

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 12, 2017 in Writing |

I’ve been practicing writing blurbs and I think I need a lot more practice. I wanted to write one for BP. All day, yesterday I struggled with writing it, I read other book blurbs, I wrote up several versions and hated them all because I felt so lost. Then a couple dear friends, including J.A. […]

Writing During Stressful Times; some links

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 6, 2017 in Real Life, Writing |

It’s been stressful. The election and first days of the new presidency has added stress and anxiety to everyone’s lives. In response to this, several writers around the web have put together some posts, threads and statements giving advice and encouragement to their peers. I thought I would list/link to those I know of here. […]

Happy Imbolc

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 1, 2017 in mental illness, Patreon, Real Life, Writing |

  January was a difficult month. I’ve seen over and over on FB, Jan was the trial month, Feb is when 2017 ACTUALLY starts. Something I really can’t argue with. This morning, as I was coming home from grabbing a quick (and unhealthy) bite to eat I got bushwacked by an idea for the Avaria […]

State of the NPhoenix, an update, and future plans.

Posted by Necia Phoenix on March 18, 2015 in publishing, Real Life, Writing |

Happy Early Ostara to those who celebrate it! (Or Mabon[I think] if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) So there are some things I’m having to change. Plans schedules and whatnot. First of all, because of some things one of my kids is going through, I’ve had to prioritize him and his needs over everything else. […]

Quick update.

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 4, 2015 in publishing, Writing |

It’s time

Posted by Necia Phoenix on May 31, 2014 in publishing, Writing |

So I’ve been waffling on this for a while now, but I’m taking a jump here. Starting next Tuesday here and, possibly Wattpad, Elemental Truth will be posted as a serial. Two chapters a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays until it’s done. Once it’s wrapped up, I’ll do a final edit pass then it’ll be available as […]

Re-Release

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 26, 2014 in publishing, Real Life |

One of the greatest things about self pubbing, is if you need to change something, you can. If you don’t like the cover, you’re not stuck with the pubbing co going SOL. The Magic Maker is one of my favorite stories, and the first of what I hope, many set in that world. To date […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Summer Wrap Up

Posted by Necia Phoenix on August 31, 2013 in publishing, Real Life, Writing |

Well writing wise that was slightly disappointing. But I do tend to expect too much from myself. I think, starting next summer, I’ll just suspend big writing goals during the summer. There’s just too much going on. The kids have been in school for a week, I’ve been catching up on housework and stuff. And […]
