What’s in a Name…

So, I’ll say it. I’m terrible at naming things. People, places, things, stuff, junk…all of it. Sometimes, I’ll rename something three or four times and maybe be happy with the outcome. I currently have a list of things to rename in both “The Call of Chaos” and “The Coming Storm”, which I will be doing very soon. It’s going to suck, but it’s necessary.

Every once in a while, I’ll be watching TV or a movie and find something that makes me think “Wow, that sounds like a name I would make up!” If there was ever any question, that’s not a good thing.

So, yeah, that is one of the tasks I have to do while I tighten up both books during the coming weeks (hopefully only two or three weeks). Yep. It’ll be me, sitting at a table in a coffee shop, talking to myself and randomly coming up with combinations of letters until something sounds right.

I guess, for the most part, that’s what writing a book is, anyway, no?

So Close

Today, I finished the first edit of “The Coming Storm”. This marks the beginning of the end for the editing process. What’s left? There is some general tightening and tidying to be done and, once it’s over, publishing is not far behind.

I can’t begin to convey just how excited I am about this. I absolutely love to tell stories and, soon enough, I will be able to share these with those who wish to listen (or, more appropriately, read–you get the idea).
