Hi friends!

Big Hand

So I got sidetracked this month. I was going to do a whole series of short stories based on the theme of Mojo Hand, Conjure Magic, Root Doctors and the like. I still want to write that. But unfortunately, I got sidetracked on a few other projects, such as starting two new blogs, one on Tumblr and one on WordPress.  Both are called World Wrighter, but they are now separate.

The World Wrighter Tumblr blog was going to be for writing and graphic art projects, but I decided to dedicate that one specifically to art and webcomic stuff.

I created another one just for my daily writing on WP, and so far I have been quite productive. I call it my World Wrighter Not-So-Daily-Writing blog. Sure, I’d love to write a story a day, but I know that is an unrealistic goal. But I am doing pretty well there. I am taking word prompts and creating an impromptu story that is influenced by the word or phrase. It is kinda fun, if I do say so myself. I am learning to write shorter, and I think my stories are rather cohesive for being written without much preparation. Check them out and let me know what you think. Follow WorldWrighterBlog if you want the latest updates. Leave comments. Writers love comments. It makes us feel like we are not writing in a void.

Thanks for reading!

Hi friends!

Big Hand

I’m getting into the swing of Camp NaNoWriMo. April will be a great month, and I believe I have finally dredged myself out of my funky gloom. This month, I will be posting here when I can, with updates on my writing progress as well as excerpts from my project: Mojo Hand, and Other Tales.

Below is the synopsis for the project taken from my Novel Info page. Go check it out.

Thanks,

Red Rain (working title) – Chapter One: Red Rain [Prewriting]

Hi friends!

Red Rain (working title)

I’m preparing for November’s NaNoWriMo, and while working on the background and world building, I decided to try my hand at some discovery writing. Red Rain is a working title, and will likely change once I find something better (I titled my first chapter Red Rain).

Below is the first glance at this new fantasy world, a weird western with steampunk elements and fantastic gizmos, creatures, and other cool-factor elements that I could come up with. This is exploration writing, and may not appear in the actual first draft of the novel I write in November. Let me know what you think.

Thanks,

~Mark
