Draft Zero? Oh Yes!
Draft Zero? Oh Yes!

Draft Zero? Oh Yes!

Indigo & Ink is officially moving from Scrivener to Pages. What does that mean? Why, draft zero has been achieved! So I ended up more than my original plan, but hey. That’s what drafts are for, right? Unexpected things happen. I thought at one point I might not even get to 90k. But this book, well, it’s got a mind of its own.  Just like the Mother Squid.

Anyway, this book has been very important for me to finish for a number of reasons. Things haven’t been great on a lot of fronts, but this story needed to be told. And I did it. In spite of the crap that’s been going on. In spite of the instrument of my craft (my hands) being total crap, I didn’t let it get me down. I kept going. Yes, tooting my own horn here, but… I’m happy. So there. Lord knows I need a little confidence sometimes. (Don’t we all?) Not to mention the escape.

Now… into the pits of editing!


  1. Congratulations, I admire your focus and tenacity (if only I had enough of one of those, I could START my second book, instead of never getting around to do… well, anything).

    Also, news for the Steampunk fans: Check out SUCKER PUNCH, a new movie by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) coming out next year that mingles the lines of steampunk, fantasy and sci-fi – looks A.W.E.S.O.M.E. And oh, this too:
