NaNo Update #4 – Turik

Welcome to day 4 of NaNoWriMo.

I really liked working on the dialogue between Trix and Turik, so the blurb I am sharing with you is more of that. That way I don’t give away too much.

 Turik turned me to the West and we set out with the rising sun at our backs. “So what brings you our this way Trix? I’d have thought you were happy as a troll in muck out there with the humans.” Continue reading

NaNo Update #3 – Strange Meeting

Today we are taking a trip to the Silver Bark (home of the Northern Elves).  Along the way, Beatrix meets up with someone she did not expect.

As a side note, when I went looking for a picture of a goblin, this really was almost exactly what I had imagined Turik Mudrain would look like. Continue reading

NaNo Update #2 – Into the Woods

It is day two of NaNoWriMo and I am on a good heading. I am not done writing for the day but I do have the section I wanted to share with you all. It is a scene which I would love to see artists come up with imagery for. That’s part of the reason for me posting. My hope is that I can help inspire you all in whatever creative talent suits your fancy.

The rest of the trip into the Eldar Wood was quiet. Unnervingly quiet. Continue reading

NaNo 2012 Update #1

Happy November!

Bad Alchemy

Oh my friends it is so good to be writing for Beatrix Stonebriar again. I have been saving up some ideas for her and I feel like there might not be enough hours in the day to get all of my words out for her for NaNoWriMo.
So, here is a little taste of what my brain came up with.One of the things I am planning on doing for you all is to give you little snippets of what I have written on a weekly basis. If I think of it, I might do this as part of my morning ritual. It’s a thought anyway. Here is what I need from you. Encouragement. I need the push to keep going. There’s a lot going on outside and I really want to do that too. This makes it difficult to keep writing. But if I have enough people nagging me about getting the writing done, I may just be able to get my word count up there. Continue reading


If you all have been keeping track of my Twitter feed, you’ll notice that I have a lot of posts about moving. It is a very long and tiring process and thankfully I am going to be living with another person who does audio recordings. Perhaps he will let me share his recording space, otherwise I will be recording in the car again.

Post Balticon, I am now plotting new cases for Beatrix Stonebriar. Once I get my casefiles and research materials unpacked (I have marked where they are), it will be time for documentation.

Be good to each other and keep on dreaming.
