That way if I find myself stuck in one place I can turn on a different way of thinking by changing gears and working on something else.
It sort of tricks you because you have to pivot to what is going on in the other story and it sparks your brain to kick start the creativity again.
Often I will write for a half hour or so and suddenly an idea from the back of my mind strikes and it is sort of a eureka moment sending me back to where I was stuck. (less)

I have always loved telling stories. Reliving certain life experiences or expanding on the memories of the events of life.
I remember being really small, like six or seven, and using primitive word processors and art work to write my own stories.
There are so many things I love about being a writer but most of all it is the escape and hunt. I get to run head long with an idea toward a goal. Its like treasure hunting. You have a map, you're outline, you have characters, that is your crew, and you have the treasure, the destination where you want the story to take you and the journey of it all.
With any story, whether I finish it or not, it is a fantastic ride. The spark of a story is a great rush. Holding a finished tale in your hands is a trill. But watching someone take in your story and really enjoy it, is a real joy. (less)

This is a short read and a perfect length for a quick shot of entertainment or just a good distraction.
The story is based on the old fairy tale story, The Tinderbox, by Hans Christian Anderson.

The Hobbit or There and Back Again by J.R.R. Tolkien
“Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold; where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the height,
The wind was moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells wer

The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
“Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back and home to bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and shade,
Away shall fade! Away shall fade!”

Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon;
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled their hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!”

message 3: by Scott

Scott Alexander Just as a teaser, Wolf Queen will be 18 chapters and double the length of A Bite is Forever Part 1. So you will get a larger adventure in this book.
It continues the path of Alexander and Faye while adding a huge cast of characters that grow the immensity of the world ten fold. I hope you will love it, be shocked by it, and even become afraid of it.


message 2: by Scott

Scott Alexander My next Children's book is titled "Busy Bunny's Night of Wonder" and is being illustrated right now. It is a journey into a zoo after hours but so much more. The curiousity of the little bunny guides the rest of the cast into one adventure after another. This is the first of those adventures.
Each book includes a large appendix full of useful information for kids of all ages and fun facts that will make any reader giggle and think back to their youth, chasing fireflies.
The final release date hasn't been set yet. But we are working really hard to make sure it is out in 2012 before the Christmas holiday.


message 1: by Scott

Scott Alexander My latest book Wolf Queen, is coming September 7, 2012.
It is the second book in the Everlasting Night Book Series, and it is a huge step for the series as a whole.
It is a massive leap forward in scale and numbers of characters involved. see www.ScottAlexanderBaker.com for more details.
