Today we’re talking with Tony Valdez, author of Dax Harrison.

An excerpt from Dax Harrison:

   The hours passed as the Crichton continued on through hyperspace. The crew kept themselves busy as best they could, purposely either keeping their minds on or off what they were about to face.

Logan chose the former, checking her rifle multiple times over and pacing in the cargo bay until she caught herself in the act. After that, she resigned herself to the cockpit, watching the maps on the main con...

Let’s just skip this week, okay?

No? Well let’s just say that my sinus infection reached critical mass at the same time that my creativity stores reached critical lows. Week 3 was a STRUGGLE, folks. Let’s take a look at the wagons and see which ones I fell off of and which I managed to stay on.

Word Count Wagon: Fell

Daily Writing Wagon: Stayed...mostly

Brain Yoga Wagon: Fell during Week 1 (did I fail to mention that? oops!)

Sleep Wagon: Hanging on by a thread

But fear not. For every wagon I fell off...

Day 8:

Another great day in the chatroom. Tonight I tackled several scenes that the earlier chapters have been waiting on, which means that I’ll be able to polish up another round of chapters soon and give them the ever elusive “done” stamp. I also discovered some new subplots for the middle of the book, which is great because that’s where the story is the most sparse right now. All in all, a really productive night!

Word Count-wise, things are starting to get into a groove and it’s looking like I...

Day 1

At last, NaNoWriMo is here! I did the stay-up-til-midnight thing to kick off the event. It’s a lot like New Years Eve, but instead of making a bunch of noise and possibly kissing a stranger, at the stroke of twelve you simply sit down and write. I practised some restraint and did not break out the champagne and confetti this time around. (I’m saving them for the 30th!) After getting a solid hour in, I went to bed. The cool thing about this year’s start of NaNo is that it fell on the Dayligh...

Happy Halloween! (Okay, it’s Mischief Night, but close enough.)

Since it’s the end of a very eventful month, I thought I’d post a recap of everything that’s been going on in recent weeks. Top 5 List, anyone?

1.   I finally broke that 50k mark I’ve been chasing for the last couple of months! Here’s an excerpt from the most recent scene:


Wyck looked in the mirror. The cut wasn’t too bad. The blood was already starting to dry at the edges. He took one finger and gingerly pressed against his chee...

Today’s interview is a little different. It's about an anthology contest being held on Inkshares called Earth In The Year 10,000 ( Author Richard Saunders & Mykl Walsh (project sponsors) will tell you more.

Tell us about the concept of Earth In The Year 10,000:

It’s an anthology contest where writers can submit essays, poetry, or short stories around a common element. It can be sci-fi -futuristic fantasy or possibly even something like...

1.   Have a plan - - of some sort. Your plan might be that you’re going to free-write the whole thing and refine the story later. Or, you might try your hand at outlining the whole thing, start to finish. Or perhaps you’ll take a casting approach by gathering your characters and then deciding what sort of lessons each individual will learn during their journey. Put some thought into it in advance so you’re not spending the first week figuring out your course of action.​

2.   Prep your workspace....

Welcome! This is the very first blog post, so I’ll keep things simple and introduce you to the site. The focus of Myths Mists & Musings is to share my creative projects and related topics, such as writing, painting, mythology, fantasy/dark fantasy, and the natural world.
