I don’t always create detailed outlines before I write a chapter but I do have milestones in place to guide me. When I find one of those milestones just isn’t fitting into the total story, I stop writing and do several other things. I read the manuscript “as is” to see if I made a wrong turn. I go over ALL my notes I’d written when developing chapters and scenes including my general outline for the entire novel. I search source materials including anything I’ve written in a previous book that may impact my characters now.

Then I usually gather up my computer and notes go to someplace with a lot of noise and start the chapter over. I write, delete, write again then repeat until my rhythm returns. Once that happens I write through the issues, letting my gut be the guide. I don’t get hung up on awkward sentences, poor word choices, or weak writing. All that can be fixed. I keep going until I’m through the hard stuff causing my block.

When done, I immediately read what I wrote, mark it up and rewrite. I repeat this process until everything works smoothly. I promise the effort put into writing through a block will yield better outcomes along with developmental surprises you never saw coming. I take these blocks and use them as opportunities to improve the story. I think a block or issue might appear because something is basically wrong. These speed bumps give you a chance to breath, reflect and feel the story.(less)

For me it’s the writing. When I write I get to create a new world full of people who might do anything. I love the surprises that appear from nowhere. I love to tell a story. Weaving a new reality is complex and amazing. As I research I learn so much, read books I’d never heard of and bore people to death at dinners and cocktail parties. What I like best is everything, oh and I love to write.(less)

Look ForwardLook Back

I know. It’s been a very long time since I wrote a blog. To be honest blogging is not my thing. It’s more my wife’s thing. I’m more comfortable weaving my emotions into a piece of fiction. Look, maybe that seems a bit harder than just getting it out there but for me it feels safer. God knows feeling safer isn’t something we’re use to during this global pandemic.

“Not the monsters of Halloween that play and run from house to house collecting a treasure trove of candy. No, my monsters. Monsters hidden from the waking world only revealed to the few who had crossed that line between life and death and dared to return.”
Wood Dickinson, The Madness of Robin Randle: A Robin Randle Story

“A man walked out of the distance toward me. He was tall and gaunt. I couldn’t see his face because where it should have been was filled with darkness. There was terrible power there. Power in his darkness but then I saw, there were also stars.”
Wood Dickinson, The Madness of Robin Randle: A Robin Randle Story

“Sloan jumped out and walked over to me, “What the hell are you doing now?” “Nightcrawlers. That’s what they are. They’re called Nightcrawlers!” Sloan had a look of alarm cross his face, “Damn. I thought we’d lost ‘em.” I reeled back looking at Sloan, “You mean they’re real?”
