Cut Scenes -- February Website Update

Image hosting by PhotobucketFirst, cut scenes...yes, it hurts when I gotta do it. I remember all the time I put into writing it, polishing it...and it won't work, or the book is too long and this doesn't sufficiently move the plot forward or reveal character that the scene should be in.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I rewrote the first chapter of Sorceress of Faith several times. Well, one of the best ways I know of to soothe myself over cutting scenes is to put them up on my website -- some of them. I still have huge swaths of Heart Thief that never went up...

In any event, you'll be seeing more of Sorceress, if you want.

As for the rest of the Website Update -- Contest is for a large "tower" pin by Kirks Folly. The Free Your Artist page is about PLAY this month, and the Worlds page, as stated, is a cut scene between Marian/Brandy and Richard/Jack Wilse.

May you not have to cut a word today!
