Chicks & Dicks
, a blog devoted to M/M romance. Their theme for the month of August is World Building and my series Chronicles of Ylandre
fit the bill so to speak. Needless to say, I was more than happy to write about how I go about building a story universe and, of course, I had to include a shout-out to the LotR fanfic community to which I owe a lot in terms of learning the craft of story telling and character development. So if anyone's interested in reading (and commenting on) my post, you can read it here
. I hope it pleases.
In other news, I'm trying to finish the next chapter of Prior Claim
as well as get on with Book Five of CoY. I landed in the hospital for gallbladder surgery late last month and, as with all disruptions to my writing, I wound up with minor writer's block. I am regaining momentum and hopefully will be back to full speed before too long. But, yeah, this was an unexpected setback in my schedule. *sigh* Happily, my recovery was fairly smooth and not as painful as I'd thought it would be (my commiserations to those who haven't been as lucky, especially aglarien1
). Anyway, I hope to post a new chapter next week and, if I can keep up the pace and no further interruptions come my way *crosses fingers* maybe finish Book Five before the year ends.
Wish me luck! ;)
