The Call Back

I set goals (tasks I want to accomplish during a year) and I list milestones (things I hope to achieve but do not have direct control over). So far I’ve met, or am close to meeting, all my goals for the year, which is fairly standard for me. If I have work to do, I […]

No Nano this year

Last year I participated in Nanowrimo, but I won’t be doing it this year. I’ve just finished a novel and need to revise it and don’t want to dive into something new. I will be adding words to the Lazy Designer Book #3, but I don’t think it will be more than 30K and its […]

Brent’s Stories Available (So Far) This Year…

So this has been an interesting year for me. I haven’t really kept a tally in previous years but I’m sure 2012 has seen more stories of mine published than in any other year. So far I’ve had six stories appear, with another slotted to be out before the end of the year (and two […]

Stickers!

While cleaning out some old files I came across these old stickers. I believe I got them for the writing organizer software I used to distribute over a decade ago. When I first started seriously writing I really wanted some kind of digital notebook to organize all my ideas, stories, and submissions. So I wrote […]

Trains, Trains, Trains

Yep, this is what I’ve been up to lately. The kids love the new Lego train set and I’ve been buying too many accessories for it. Well, okay, I’m doing a bit more than just playing with trains. Mostly I’ve been writing, editing, writing. I wrote rough drafts for several stories last summer and I’m […]

Things You Might Not Know

For those of you who are interested in such things I thought it might be worthwhile to list a variety of facts about me. Some true, some not so much. TRUE FACTS I write short stories and novels I won first place in the third quarter of the Writers of the Future Contest (2009) for […]

What do you want to know?

Okay I have a cold and my two sick kids are home with me and I’m in the middle of major novel revisions and Empire Avenue is near to rolling out our super killer robot army to take over the world some exciting new updates. So I’m busy. I have a lot I want to […]

How do you write?

After working many years with BioWare, much of those being spent helping to design tools that writers use, I’ve gained a fair bit of experience with understanding how creative types, create. As a writer myself, I’ve often used my own experience to help guide tool development and even created my own writing platform YourOtherMind . […]

Word Progress so Far

Since the beginning of the year I’ve set myself some firm word count goals and to my delight I’ve been able to meet and often exceed them. I took a quick look at my tracking and I’ve now written over 75 000 words since January. The bulk of this has been on the novel but […]

Fullscreen Writing Mode

Allows writing in an uncluttered, fullscreen environment with all the power of YourOtherMind available but kept out of sight. Fullscreen Writing Mode What does it do? Allows the writer to focus on the current text. Several advanced formatting tools are also available only in fullscreen mode such as access to cosmetic color changes (i.e., white […]
