C Mead final logoI think that I wrote a post with exactly the same theme last year!  But where is the year going?

I haven’t been up to much lately, and once more I have changed my web format.  while I liked the old one, it wasn’t really what made me happy, so I chose another one, and I kinda like it!

Curse of the TaniwhaI have made a decision about Curse of the Taniwha.  You see, I was having issues with it.  I knew where I wanted the story to go, but it wasn’t really gathering pace or steam like I wanted it to.  I went back to the original plotting phase I had on it, and realised that I had two sub plots.  The relationship between Rena and Rob, and Rena and the taniwha.  This made a bit more sense to me, so I have gone back to the beginning, and instead of having a prologue, I have started with the prologue as chapter one, and written more about Rob and Rena getting together.  The start of chapter three or four will be about 6 months down the track, showing the change in the relationship.  This will show the contrast between the relationship that Rena and the taniwha have.

I am feeling a little more excited about this story now, and I also have a rather a big ending on it, with a bit of a brainwave in regards to the connection between Rob and the Taniwha – oh yeah, there is a connection, and it is a doozy.

On the creative front, I have started doing patchwork.  Why?  I really don’t know, but I am enjoying it.  I just got to get used to colour values, lights and darks and working from there.  Still, my first effort wasn’t too bad, considering I hand stitched it, and I am not a very good sewer, however I can only get better with practice.

I have been looking further into self publishing, and have found a great site with details on how to build an Authors Platform.  I have decided to do a series on these, featuring on a Saturday, just about how I am creating my image, and getting my writing off the ground.  Hopefully, by the time I am finished, I will have a great authors website for my followers  🙂

Anyway, I have other jobs I need to get on with right now.  Hope everyone has a good writing week.  🙂

Where is the year going?

    Ooh can you post pics of the patchwork?

    Going back to the actual plot of the story and working from there is a good idea. I love the new look of the site – this one may be a keeper 😉
