Now you see me…


Eric Standley, a Virginia-based artist who works with laser-cut paper, creates amazing and awe-inspiring layered paper cuts of extraordinary complexity that successfully marry Gothic and Islamic architectural elements in tiny cathedral-like spaces.

❝ Writing is like everything else: the more you do it the better you get. Don’t try to be perfect as you go along, just get to the end of tha damn thing. Accept imperfections. Get it finished and then you can go back. If you try and polish every sentence there’s a chance you’ll never get past the first chapter. ❞

Mokamvilias in Greece

In English, they’re usually called bougainvilleas (after the French admiral Bougainville), and their thorns are WICKED sharp. (Trimming one of these guys? Make sure you have kevlar-lined leather gloves, because they’ll cut through any other kind of work glove. No joke.) 

But they sure are beautiful when blooming!

Yay! Both for your word count AND more Beacon!

:) yep! Almost have a draft of the last chapter done.

It’s long. And, I hope, not too meandering.

That’s really good!! Good going! :D

Thank you!

Goals for this week: finish and post that last chapter of Beacon, get back to work on Divided Loyalties, finish up some one-shots I’ve had rattling around… yeah. We’ll see how it goes.

This week’s writing report:

Monday: about 1500 words on Thing A, 200 words on Thing B

Tuesday: let’s not discuss it

Wednesday: 660 words on Thing B

Thursday: 896 words on Thing C, 223 words on Thing B

Friday: 343 words on Thing A

Saturday: 245 words on Thing A, 831 words on Thing B

Sunday: a whopping 2487 words on Thing B

Total words: 6554, daily average: ~936

So, still making progress, still scattered.

Thing B is Beacon in the Darkness, which obviously did not update today. This is probably the last chapter, but it keeps growing, and it’s almost there, but it’s going to need a little more. It’s just… nice to wrap things up with a good ending, y’know? So I want to take the time to get it right.
