You'll learn a lot about what works and what doesn't.

Write, write, write--nothing happens unless you put butt in chair and fingers on keyboard (or pen in hand). Everyone has their own rhythms, but the most successful authors are consistent. They write to a word count or time limit every day.

Face the fact that your early stuff will likely be crap--that's okay. Learn and practice your craft--read books on writing, go to workshops. You'll get better, especially if you continue to read and write.(less)

A fun collection of short stories from Ms. Castle. Most deal with her secondary characters from the Bacon series, but a few outliers are thrown in. Good for bedtime or commute reading.

A lovely coffee table book from my daughter a couple of years ago and I finally finished it. Brilliant art. Fun interviews. Lots of history about the characters, comics, TV shows, and movies. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

“I am constantly amazed by how little difference there is between religions.' Selene sighed. 'It seems the arguments are always over the details. Mary or Isis, Jesus or Horus. Maybe Hypatia is right and names don't matter, just the search for godliness in the life we live.”
Faith L. Justice, Selene of Alexandria

“Bishop Hilary of Poitiers described it this way:   "Every year, nay every moon, we make new creeds to describe invisible mysteries. We repent of what we have done, we defend those who repent, we anathematize those whom we defended. We condemn either the doctrine of others in ourselves, or our own in that of others; and reciprocally tearing one another to pieces, we have been the cause of each other’s ruin.”
Faith L. Justice, Hypatia: Her Life and Times

Why thank you, Loudog! It's been a great day and week. I'm two short scenes away from finishing a third novel. Looking forward to putting it away for a while and rejoining the human race.

Thanks for thinking about me. Have a great Valentine's Day!

Faith Justice Hi Judith,

Thanks so much for the comment and for following my blog! Someone (very wise) once said, "If you don't want to work a day in your life, do the things you love." I love history and I love writing and have been fortunate to be able to devote myself to both for several years. Before that, I worked in the corporate world...enjoyable, but not self-satisfying.

Take care,
Faith


Judith Starkston Hi Faith,
I visited your blog and liked it very much. You have some great interviews and articles that were genuinely engaging. It sounds like you've been working at this for a long time quite successfully. Thanks for being a great source! Judith
