Well, page girls too, actually. I know almost all of my posts this month have been about brainstorming my story of the Great Christmas Blizzard, the next installment of a saga that begins with “Orphans of Opry Tower”, but hey, it’s my blog, I can … Continue readingPage Boys of the Perfect Storm
Having compiled the year of weather as well as the many faces in different places for my Christmas-superstorm-cum-ghost-story, it’s hit me the past couple of days: how exactly am I going to tell this story? After all, the heart of it is Christmas Eve during … Continue readingA Wandering Soul in the Wild Hunt?
In the story I’m brainstorming for (see here and here), the tale of a Christmas superstorm that’s rather sprawling but has as its heart Georgia Roadhouse, a character I invented, who has a vacation house in the Shenandoah, the very heart of the storm, and … Continue readingThe Lives of Georgia and Decca: More Thoughts
My last update on the brainstorming process for my story came a few days ago, and I have some new material! I won’t actually write it, let alone release it, for a while, since it’s bulging into a novel-length concept, and I’ll be busy with … Continue readingChristmas Blizzard: More Brainstorming
Working up the scenario for my Great Christmas Blizzard, which I’ve decided will take place in 2045 (because why not make it take place the same year as the great rogue comet in one of my other stories, right?), I find that my attempt at … Continue readingThe Ultimate Storm?

In a story I’m developing Fia, a competitive ballroom dancer who wants to upgrade her appearance, will get her makeover done in Southern California, at the behest of her (soon-to-be) sister-in-law Katenka, who lives in Malibu: in her own words, close to where all the … Continue readingTaking my Worldbuilding into Southern California
I’ve already shared some thoughts on my concept for a follow-up on a plot thread in “Orphans of Opry Tower” (a story I’ve completed but not published): a character named Fia and her impending big makeover, along with her desire for hot sex and, above … Continue readingA Shipwreck Date in the Kelp Forest?
In my yet-to-be-published story, “Orphans of Opry Tower”, a pair of teenage twin siblings are friends of the orphans, even living in the same tower as they do, and the close and nigh-exclusive relationship between the twins is disrupted when the brother, Fintan, brings home … Continue readingFia After Opry Tower
