Unruly Characters and Awkward Interviews // meet the cast of Aeterna

I would like to formally recant a statement I made last week: "Boy, NaNoWriMo is easy!" [insert negative adjectives here] The biggest downfall with nano is that all my creative energy gets channeled into my book, with none left over for the blog.

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact.

I almost didn't publish something today. Hang on, hang on, there's a reason. (There always is...) This wasn't just me being lazy and furtively ignoring my blogging accountability partner. (Which I would *cough* NEVER *cough cough* do... *choke*) The reason I almost didn't post today is ACTUALLY because of you guys. Yep. It's YOUR fault. [...]

Alright, people, I have an announcement to make. We all (hopefully) know that I'm writing a book that hates me. Not only does it resist being written, it's extremely disobedient and rebellious, and my characters make tons of messes that I have to clean up. It's been a thorn in my side for two years [...]
