Gloom despair and troubles untold

I woke up this morning my mind chock full of ideas for my Grey Knight series. This plot twist. That interesting tidbit. The identity of the Lady I just introduced in the latest episode. So, I got up made myself a cup of coffee. Then I made my first mistake. I sat down in the living room with my laptop. I can write on it. Hitting the right keys takes a little more thought, but I can do that.  Then, before I began, I checked my emails. Well, after that, looking over Facebook would take only a moment. Somewhere between my first cup of coffee and Carrie getting up, all those fantastic ideas evaporated like a morning mist. They were gone with just a tickle in the back of my mind of what had been there.  I wasted another hour trying to get an image for the Kindle Vella “Rumors of Dragons” series “From the tales of the Grey Knight,” don’t you know. Ideas abound by nothing quite yet right.

The Grumble story is calling. The Dragon’s Spine series is upset about being on the sidelines. What’s a poor man to do?

I know I’ll write a post for my blog. I know all of you want to hear about my bad writing habits.

By the way, Grumble has informed me that the world where I am reporting his escape attempt is not the only place his influence is expanding. He wants you to know he is busy on our plane of existence, in case you hadn’t noticed all the disgruntled grumbling.

About Dale

Stories have been a part of my life forever. I have heard them, read them, and told them as long as I can remember. I’ve written hundreds of stories. Bits and pieces of stories. This is my first novel. It is the result of a story that refused to die. It kept unreeling in my mind. After a year of this haunting, I had no choice but to write it. What started as a simple damsel in distress story changed once I met the damsel. As I wrote this set of stories the world I imagined grew. After rewrites, revisions, and letting it bake. I’ve discovered more. More of the politics of the region. More relationships between people. Now as I begin a sequel to this first book, I’m finding more complexity than I ever imagined and more loose strings that need to be explored.
