I’ve Done It!

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 9, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Writing process |

The Crown of Eldrete is, so far as I can tell, now removed from all ebook markets.  The print edition still exists because it’s more tricky than just clicking a button or two to remove a print edition from Amazon/Createspace, but since as far as I can tell Mom is the only person who ever […]

Amusing Comments To Myself In First Drafts

Posted by Shannon Haddock on April 14, 2017 in Writing process |

If something is going seriously wrong in a rough draft, my process is to type a comment to myself in all caps and then try that bit again.  Usually the comment is just “NO” or “NOT QUITE RIGHT” or something equally boring. Or “FUCKING HELL” with varying numbers of exclamation marks.  Sometimes though, they get amusing. […]

I Have Learned To Write

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 24, 2017 in Rants, Writing process |

(WARNING:  AUTHOR IS FEELING EVEN MORE SNARKY THAN USUAL.) So, after years and years of perusing writing blogs and forums, I have finally learned how to write. First, I must keep an inspiration board filled with images that I think might, someday, inspire me to write something or to create a character or whatever.  I also […]

What I’m Currently Working On

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 1, 2017 in Intertwined Lives, Jake's Last Mission, No More Lies, Short stories, Writing process |

I used to do posts about my WIPs regularly, but they seemed to make my blog spontaneously generate problems, so I quit.  I don’t know if this will be a regular feature or not.  But I feel like doing it today, so I am. Titles of projects are what the files are named.  I am […]

This was supposed to be an excerpt from The Crown of Eldrete

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 7, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Rants, Writing process |

(WARNING:  I HAD CAFFEINATED TEA WHILE WRITING THIS AND THIS GOT REALLY FUCKING RAMBLY IN PLACES BECAUSE OF THIS.) The problem is, to find an excerpt to post I had to re-read it. I found half a scene I liked enough to share with the world. Yeah, that’s in a book I’ve published. And here’s where I relate […]

Word Count Goals and Such

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 1, 2017 in No More Lies, Rants, Writing process |

So, I did Nanowrimo this November, as I previously mentioned.  I said I’d do a blogpost about why, but I don’t recall what I was going to say in one because my reasons basically boil down to the atmosphere on their forums had changed to be much more friendly and less stupid, so the community […]

Today In “Things Said To Myself While Revising”

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 24, 2017 in No More Lies, Writing process |

Jaye is home.  But she’s asleep, so I’m still talking to myself.: “The ego, Bobby!” “Whoa, that’s a bad sentence.” “Ohhhhh!” “Dumbass.” (And for once this was directed at myself instead of Bobby.) “Oh, god, that’s . . .” “Groovy.” “What the fuck?” “Ooooh . . . that’s better . . . yeah!” “Jesus fucking Christ!” (This was […]

This is another post that supposed to help me gain followers or something

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 23, 2017 in Jake's Last Mission, Rants, Uncategorized, Writing process |

The suggestion for what to blog about is “Write an article highlighting one of your Pinterest boards and explain how and why you use it”.  I do, in fact, have a Pinterest account.  I even have boards for a couple of my books. So, here, have a look at my board for the cleverly titled Jake’s […]

Future Story Ideas . . . At Least, That’s What It Was Supposed To Be About

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 18, 2017 in Rants, Writing process |

Welcome to a new, (supposedly) regular feature of this blog where I go through a list of some “things for writers to blog about”.  Sometimes I will, amazingly enough, actually be blogging about whatever the suggested topic is instead of snarking about it! Today is not one of those days, however. Today’s topic — as […]

Anyone interested in being a beta reader?

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 17, 2017 in No More Lies, Rants, Writing process |

I want more people’s opinions on the-gods-please-let-this-be-the-final-draft of No More Lies. I know there are a million writer hangouts online where I can ask, but all of those have the expectation that I’ll also beta read the other guys’ stuff and, quite frankly, I don’t have the temperament to be a good beta reader . .
