Short Version:

I’m rewriting extensively and have realised that posting chapter-by-chapter doesn’t work for me. The plan is to turn the series into a trilogy of three novels, and I’m aiming to have the first book (Web of Shadows) done this year.

It’s weird how things go in circles. I used to have Livejournals (childofatlantis was my main) until the site fell apart. I moved to Dreamwidth (brightwanderer) and put my fanfic on AO3 (Atalan), but never really found the sort of community that I’d had on LJ. Eventually I got on Tumblr (seaskystone), but I’ve found that I don’t like it for text-heavy content, and now it’s heading down the same death spiral as LJ in the war between content producers and advertisers.

Anyway this is where you will find my Very Important Thoughts on writing, on various useful things I’ve learned and would like to share, and on my current creative projects. There may occasionally be Bad Art to illustrate my progress in teaching myself to draw. There will probably be random updates about my life. And there will definitely be cat pictures.
