Hello all! Life continues as it does without giving so much as a moment’s break. I’ve been actively keeping up on all of my projects and won’t rehash any of it here (busyness is a real thing for a writer).
I do have a slight announcement to share. I am featured on another writer’s blog in an interview that you can click over to read here: http://jamie-marchant.com/blog/
Hope you enjoy that little bit of a tidbit. It was a fun experience and I hope to do more in the near future. Yes, that was an actual excerpt from “So Speaks the Gallows” and a great deal of fun to finally share. (I think I’ll share it here on the website as well over on the So Speaks the Gallows page.)
I am working on the second newsletter set to be released at the end of August. If you haven’t signed up yet for it, I highly encourage you to do so. It will contain a “Shoals to the Hallowed” short story that will fill in some gaps and provide additional information to everything what has transpired so far. I know there’s a propensity to provide exposition but I really try to avoid this while writing. The information is there but lines do need to be made. I trust you all as readers to do that.
Also, I wanted to take today’s blog post to recommend a movie to all of you. Baby Driver (the title of the film may be the only thing I don’t like about it) is such a great film and done so well from a direction perspective. I know I mentioned it in a previous post but I cannot stop promoting it! You’ll find today’s Call to Action devoted to a video that dives deeper into the filmmaking that I found fun to watch.
Not a main writing focus for today’s blog post but I like to pause and share the things I’m doing and enjoying. All of these affect my writing in some form or another. I’m not one of those writers who is always writing/editing/revising or working on my projects. Breaks are good for my sanity, which is essential for writers to maintain (though, I guess there are some writers out there who would argue the opposite).
Call to Action: Watch the video and enjoy!
