Lori’s Writing Nook

Posted in class, Writing on June 12, 2017 by Loriendil

For several years I did an online fiction writing support group/class in There.com and afterwards in Twinity. I enjoyed the meetings because we had avatars and could either text chat or voice chat.

But due to lots of Real Lifeβ„’ interruptions, that was put on hold.

I am now starting the group again – but with a difference. No avatars, alas, but text and voice chat is available as I will be using Discord. It is a free download or you can use it in a browser. The nice thing is, even if we’re not officially meeting, you can leave a text message that the rest of us can view at any time.

If you are interested, please contact me through my website or on Facebook, and I will give you the Discord information for my server.

See you there!


My Own Wonder Woman – Tam of Sword’s Edge

Posted in My Writing, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Writing with tags , on June 6, 2017 by Loriendil

I’m not one to push my books very often, but I cannot resist. Tam, the heroine of Sword’s Edge is a wonder woman; she’s a tough fighter and a stubborn little cuss to boot!

If you like that sort of story, considering reading more about Tam. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.


The novel is available in a variety of e-book formats and in print.

Yes, I’ve known about this, and warned some folks who asked my opinion, but I agree with Tara Sparling, even if someone else says it better, the info still needs to get out there.

So here’s her article:

Happy Easter! He Lives! Aaaand – I’m Rewriting!

Posted in My Writing, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Writing with tags , , , , , , , on April 16, 2017 by Loriendil

On this beautiful Easter Sunday, I am blessed with the knowledge that Y’shua lives, and with a gorgeous, sunny day, windows open, birds singing, a gentle breeze wafting through.

I’m also doing a rewrite of what I had thought was a final draft of Children of the Enaisi because a friend mentioned something in her read-through that made me realize I had forgotten to tie up a plot thread from Sword’s Edge. Part of me wants to pull my hair out, part of me is happy because I am writing.
