Welp. There it is. I actually published a deng book. Sleepless Flame is a thing that exists in reality. Despite being a weaver of words, I don’t exactly have a way to explain my thoughts and feelings. Immersive science fiction worlds, specifically cyberpunk, have always been an extremely important part of my life. It has literally kept me alive these years, and I am so happy to finally breathe mine into existence.

I’ve said before, I don’t have much to be proud of in my life, and I find it very difficult to finish projects. I get discouraged easily and give up. But after seven years, I finally saw something to the end. Huh.

Odin Learns to Dodge Wrenches


This was an arduous week. I honestly didn’t expect to spend so much time on these edits.  What was giving me the most difficulty was chapter three, which I have pretty much rewritten ENTIRELY. That being said, it is FINISHED, and I even like where it went, despite the agony it had caused.

I also kicked out another chapter, which only took me about two days, a new record for me Whee! It was the first encounter with Experimentalists, so lots of squishy metaphors were used. Continue reading Odin Learns to Dodge Wrenches

Odin is an Axe Murderer

Since most people around me are out doing spooky things without me (I’M NOT BITTER) I thought I would at least write a quick little progress update on how I have been doin’ on the draft.

Gonna level with you, it’s real rough. Morale is low.

Turns out the first half of the book, which I *thought* was finished, sounds WORLDS different than the more recent second half. So I’ve started taking the chainsaw to it.

A Jovial Progress Report

I apologize in advance for any and all typing errors that may occur. I reeeeally fucked my sleep schedule up this week, and I don’t think my brain has the ability to catch everything yet. (Energy drinks at midnight are always SMART CHOICES (TM)

I am in such high spirits this week, because SO MANY THINGS are clicking together. I promise I will not ruin this moment with casual cynicism and my impulse to wait for the other shoe to drop. THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN TO ME!

The Elusive Progress

You ever just find that one wardrobe artifact that you practically lust after, something you just dream about how rad you would look, and how it would swoosh as you are walking past your minions?

No? Just me? Pah.

For me, that piece of clothing is right here:

Progress (ow) Report (ow)

This week I picked myself back up on my workout wagon, and I am in excruciating pain. I am having difficulty raising my arms after five days of walking trails, gymming it up, and HEMA practice, so please forgive me for any errors in this post. Or don’t. Whatever floats yer goat.

So the final chapter of 15 is starting to become the bane of my existence. I have a starting point. I have an end point. Here is what the middle looks like:

Progress! Odin is Feeling it Now Mr. Krabs

It’s starting to feel a bit surreal in the writing cave as the winds of creativity begin to saturate my ear holes.

This week, I managed to not only finish off Chapter 13, but 14 as well – a week ahead of schedule. 13 had two intense combat scenes, and after the initial wave of smashing my keyboard, I was surprised to find that I didn’t hate the result.

14, on the other hand, needs a bit more polish. There is a lot of exposition that needs to be smoothed out, but for now it is good enough to progress with everything else. Continue reading Progress! Odin is Feeling it Now Mr. Krabs
