An Accidental Progression

I’ve been posting far more frequently than twice a week. It’s something that has come easily and I see no reason not to run with it. Quite simply, I’ve discovered that putting together a post is a nice way to wind down after a day of writing, or working out plot or issues. It seems a good time to grab new ideas and gently put them together while I am still in that creative zone, but making ready to let it go to see to the mundane necessities – such as making dinner and recognizing my husband and counting the pets.

Hint to writers: You’re too deep in your own plot if you can’t remember if your husband has a beard or not.


Book two of The Khekarian series is coming along nicely. I am very happy with it so far and there are only a handful of chapters left to complete and polish up. There don’t seem to be any nasty surprises waiting to leap out at me, there are no gaping holes needing attention, I know what’s happening and everything is fitting in exactly as it should.

I may come up with a name change for it, as I don’t think The Imperial Son sounds exciting enough, but for the moment that’s on the backburner. Unfortunately no one can help me with that without reading the book first, so I’m not going to ask for suggestions.

Have a great day/evening, everyone.

Cheers! 🙂

    Hi Allyson,
    i love this post tittle 🙂
    and that’s very funny “Hint to writers: You’re too deep in your own plot if you can’t remember if your husband has a beard or not.” LOL.
    yes, i’m absolutely with you about ‘our creative zone’, i always make it to the fullest when that very very rare ‘zone’ comes to me 🙂

      Hi Yuna! Hey, you’ve changed your picture. 🙂

      Thank you! I’m glad you like my hint to writers – I wonder what my husband will say? 😀

        Hi Allyson,
        You noticed it :D, that’s from my last trip 🙂
        mmm, i think either he get angry, think it funny too, or just get blank. hehehhe.

          Thank you Allyson,
          It would be a tough job to find me ‘not smiling’ on a photograph 😀 .

          ow, it sounds nice.

          I think you’re one of the best smilers I’ve ever seen. Some people smile, but their eyes don’t shine. When you smile, you smile with all of your being, so I know you’re smiling on the inside, too.

          Have a great evening! Semangat. 🙂

          What a compliment. I’ll bear it with a grateful and cheerful heart 😀
          Thank you.
          Allyson, now talk about smile, i have another story about this and i almost post it, but i held myself. it all started when i was so depressed of the way people smile at me (especially they around me), i thought they were ‘smile’ but i was wrong.
          i just smile when i want to, like what i feel to, i couldn’t fake a smile, but i got a new lesson, sometimes people were looked smile at us, but they didn’t.
          *what i’ve been talking about? sorry*

          Have a wonderful and full of inspiration night (i think it already night there)

          “fortunately the kettle turns itself off when it’s boiled . . I always thought absent mindedness was something that only professors suffered from” –> LOL
          and he must be someone very creative if he could change the beard situation intense. kekekekeke.

    LOL! yes I’m used to that – it goes with “put it in the thing” and I start guessing, fridge? freezer? dishwasher?… or “I meant to make the coffee an hour ago” – fortunately the kettle turns itself off when it’s boiled . . I always thought absent mindedness was something that only professors suffered from. Mind you it comes in handy when playing golf on the Wii as Allyson is often on another planet and doesn’t pay enough attention to the conditions!

      Ha! You know me too well. At least you didn’t ask me if you have a beard. 😀

      As for my golf – it a cunning strategy to lure you into a false sense of security.

      1. Greg

        I could always change the beard situation if you get it wrong 🙂 and as for the golf strategy, keep it up – it’s working!

          Ahh… easy fixed I just shave the two outer quarters leaving the half in the middle like Charlie Chaplin 😛
