“Finally,” he said, unconvincingly.
I have finally finished the rewrite of the story that has been tormenting me lately. Yes, the one about the mystery victim in Headless. It is the fourth of six stories in The Wind on the Blade, half of which are short stories and half of which are novelettes. I did not know I was…
POV of the Dead
I feel good about today’s work on The Wind on the Blade. I only wrote a little over 500 words, but they were good words. The POV shift that my editor suggested is so spot on. I don’t know what I was thinking before. The problem is that I had shifted the POV away from…
A Little Further
I got some good work in on the bonus story in The Wind on the Blade today and yesterday, mostly rewriting existing stuff, so it’s hard to give a word count. But I’ve gotten through the difficult bit finally. The rest is pretty good, although one section will need a POV shift. Then I get…
Words in the Snow
I wrote about 900 words today and rewrote about 600. I also deleted probably 300. Of the newly written ones, 250 were on a new story that I woke up with in my head. It’s a piece of an epic fantasy that I started ages ago and then put aside so I could write the…
No Words Lately
I’ve spent a lot of time in bed these past few weeks, because of my surgery (which was for a hernia repair, FYI). I was frustrated that my recovery hit some unexpected bumps in the beginning, but I am feeling much better now. I’m still not supposed to carry the kid, but sometimes it’s been…

A Great Movie Series?
I got some reviews to shout about recently. Headless got a 5-star review from Reader’s Favorite. Pikasho Deka said very nice things about it, like: “A delicious blend of murder-mystery and horror mixed with ancient Japanese folklore, Headless grabs you from the first page and refuses to let go till the end. Tristram Lowe weaves…

ScreenCraft Quarterfinalist x2
Something else I’ve been meaning to post about… Two things I wrote are quarterfinalists in two different ScreenCraft competitions: Headless for the ScreenCraft Cinematic Book Competition and a short story called The Sea Bass for the ScreenCraft Cinematic Short Story Competition. I’m honored to have been chosen from about 1400 and 1500 submissions respectively. A…
