Of Bards and such

Of Bards and such

Bards can be fascinating characters to write or read about. One of my current projects tells the story of Edson Pye. At the start of the tale, Edson is a beginning bard, having recently finished an apprenticeship. By instinct, I went directly to the musical part of his performances. In truth, a bard should offer more than that. Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series featured a unique type of bard, known as a gleeman. They would travel about, and entertain…

Describing people and places

Describing people and places

One challenge we face as writers is deciding how much to give the reader. If I’m introducing a character, how much description is needed? What about backstory? The same goes for locations.

A new direction

A new direction

I’ve been struggling for quite awhile to come up with a use for this space. Should I just list my books here? That seems boring, especially since I only have one published at this time. I could put all my poetry here, but I plan to publish a book at some point. I could follow the trends and try to pretend I have some magical “writing process” that makes me unique, and blog about it. I’m not feeling the whole…
