A First Try at Doll Furniture

Lately, I’ve become quite interested in dollhouses and other miniature scenes. This is my first-ever attempt at making furniture at the 1:12 scale (or any scale, for that matter). I think it came out pretty well for a first try, although I definitely have a lot of improving to do. Speaking of improving, please forgive the poor photo quality. I’m still working on proper photographic techniques at such a small scale.

Do any of you have similar hobbies or perhaps some advice you could give a first-timer? I’d love to hear from you :D

Canon in D

The short version: I’m a hopeless romantic and this poem is what being a hopeless romantic feels like.

The long version: This is a poem about love, but not in the way many poems are. In a way, this poem puts into words how I feel about love itself. The title was chosen as an homage to Pachelbel’s Canon in D, the single most beautiful piece of music I’ve ever heard. To me, that song captures the feeling of being in love better than I ever could, but I hoped to give it a try in this little piece of poetry. I hope you all enjoy it for what it’s worth.

A Question of Blog Entries

Hello and a belated happy March, everyone! This will be a short post, so let’s get right to what’s been on my mind lately.

Lately, I haven’t had a ton of writing-related news to share. I could talk about poems I’ve been working on, but that would get repetitive eventually and unless I’m publishing these poems, it doesn’t really impact anyone here, does it? At the same time, though, I don’t want this blog to become totally inactive. To this end, I’ve been thinking of branching out and writing about things other than literature. Does that sound like something that would interest any of you, or would you rather I stay with my writing-focused content, infrequent as it is?

A Time to Celebrate!

I’ve been laboring away at the sequel to The Clocksmith for around five years now. It’s been a long, uphill battle in which every draft has seen a completely different plot emerge. Characters have been added only to be removed later and replaced by other, newer characters who in turn were cut and left by the wayside. Locations were visited, then never referenced again. But at last, at long last, I have captured the story in a concrete form!

 

That’s right, the manuscript is finished! Well, not finished yet, exactly. Some very talented proofreaders are currently going over it and once they’ve finished, I’ll have one more draft to go through and then the darn thing will be ready for publication. The important thing here is that I can finally say with confidence that The Channeler, the sequel to my debut novel, will be available for purchase by the end of this year. And that, I think, is a reason to celebrate. Thank you for staying with me, everyone, and I hope you’ll be looking forward to the end of this as much as I have been!

What Was Lost

Who is this mysterious woman? Who is it I’m remembering? Truth be told, I don’t know. One day I was driving along, minding my own business, when all of a sudden a flash of an image came into my mind. I can recall this image now with vivid detail, but I have no idea what I’m remembering, or if I’m remembering anything at all. I like to think I am remembering someone, though. This feels very different from the bursts of writerly inspiration I’ve had in the past.
