See, this is what happens when you start to think, “Wow, I’m almost caught up on stuff, maybe I can start working on X now.”
So, I continued working on Operation Komodo tonight, and added about 1700 more words (and eliminated about 300). Good progress, I’m well over the halfway point. Time to start pushing toward the finish line with this story.
Then in the space of about two hours, I receive a galley to proof for the Origins Game Fair anthology Space, where my story “Moonshadows” will be appearing. So, need to carve out some time for that. Along with receiving the galley, I was approached by a publisher I’ve worked with to possibly contribute a short story for a new anthology he’s putting together. So, I’ll need to do some research, but it sounds like a fun project and well, I’m a sucker for the topic.
Oh, did I mention, I got an idea for a possible new comic script to start pitching around. So, eventually, I’ll have to finish writing up at least a synopsis of the characters and their powers and what the hell will I do with the characters since I created them before having a story to go with them and is it something I can put in a universe I already have or is it a stand alone project?
Oh yeah, and there is a new “sekrit” project on the horizon too.
Hey, Hermione! Pass me the time turner. I’m gonna need it.
I think I found my muse for when I get back to work on “On Wings of Steel”. This particular figure stands almost 24″ tall, so I’ll have to find a very special spot near the desk for her to sit.
It’s hard to find a good steampunk figure with metallic feathers instead of faerie wings. And while there are fae running around in Southwatch, the Angels of Steel are definitely human . . . or so it’s believed anyway.
So, meet Erica, the newest member of the writing team.
(There’s another one that is a companion piece with a steampunk dragon curled around her feet, but since the gargoyle does play an important part in “Wings”, I thought it made more sense to go with this one.)
We finally got the file to transfer from the iPad to the computer.
Turns out, along with enjoying some fine micro-brew beer yesterday, I also knocked out 3,978 words on Operation Komodo, the second book in the
Strikeforce Falcon series for Pro Se Press’s Signature Series.
Now to add some more words today.
Gotta love technology.
Stupid program has very simple instructions – open document, hit file, hit save as, hit the button in the upper right corner, hit mail. mail document I’ve been writing all evening to myself.
In reality – open document, hit file, hit save as, hit button, have program dump me out. Try again . . . and again . . . and again
Eventually, it’ll let me do what I want, but I’m thinking after tonight, I’m dumping every file out of this program and I’ll find something else to use. This happens far too often to make the program useful.
This was supposed to be a post about my writer’s walkabout today. Wound up going to Jailbreak Brewery and spent a very enjoyable evening there. Got several scenes written for Operation Komodo and enjoyed fantastic beer.

Hmm, writing and beer. Sorta like peanut butter and chocolate. They just go good together.
