Happy LAW Day! I hope your week has been going well. I’ve been busy, as usual. While cleaning the carpets in my office, it occurred to me that the fans might like to know the environment where Life After War is created. So I took pictures of my office for you! Please ignore the puke green walls. I can’t afford to paint them yet.
This first set is where I keep track of the Eagle teams and many of the characters in this series. If there is a red X or circle through their name, that character has died or is missing from the story line for a while. (Sorry, it’s not updated for book 9, so no clues there, but you can click on the images to see them in full size. Sorry about the blur.)
On this wall, I also keep the basic set of hand drawn maps of the actual camp itself. As you can see (hopefully. I’m a writer, not a photographer) the map is only the topside of the camp in the mountains. The one for below is so full of notes that I probably won’t release it until I redo it. No one would understand any of it but me!
The red wall folder on the wall behind my stand-up desk is also full of notebooks and files. Each series has its own pocket. It runs the length of the desk--about 6 feet.
This image is the Market where Kendle fought for the freedom of her team. Again, I’m a writer, not a drawer. Lol. For book 10, we’ll be coming back here and I’ll be making a new map of the surrounding area with SH camped there.
This side of my office is where I do everything Apple and shipping. It’s usually covered with boxes, envelopes and books, but right now, I’m still trying to get that funky smell out of the carpet from my December plumbing issue. Lotsa fun.
The empty place, where most of the seepage occurred, is where my diy audio recording booth should be. Looking forward to getting it all set up so I can start playing with the equipment and get a feel for how it works. I hope to release audiobooks for all my titles starting in 2018-2019.
This is where most of the magic takes place. Despite that killer office, I spend most of my time writing at the kitchen table. That shelf to the right is piled with papers, supplies, folders, coolers and cords, and all sorts of other everyday objects I use in my craft. The heating pad and the DVD player are used as much as my laptop.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look into where Life After War is created. Next week is an interactive day! Would you like to name a character in this series? Stop by next week for that opportunity!
Have a wonderful week, world.
