Writing Update

B.J. Baye Blog Posts 0 Comments

Just a quick update, since it’s been a couple of months. I have a story that’s been held quite a long time at Space and Time Magazine, so I’m hopeful about that. So far, no luck with anything else. I’m not really ready to start self-publishing quite yet, I’m still working on my artistic skills that way, so I’m going …

Artaholic

B.J. Baye Blog Posts 0 Comments

I got into 3D art initially to try to do book covers, that was it. Since then, I’ve become addicted. I’ve spent all my free money two months in a row on content for Daz Studio, and I have every intention of doing it the next few months as well. There’s also Vue, I want to start buying the software and the content to go with it as well. More than that, this 3D art has awakened in me something long sleeping.

Desperate Upload Cover Concept

Desperate Upload was a story I received an Honourable Mention on at the Writers of the Future contest. Revised and edited since then, I soon plan to self-publish the story as an ebook. So, I need some cover art for it. This is a scene from early in the story, where a VR game being played by 12-year-old Jon Whyte …

Two months!

Well, more like a month and a half. Sorry for the long delay in posting, but honestly nothing much has been going on. I’ve been writing, though not nearly as much as I should, and nothing’s been published. I’ve also been working on 3D art with Daz Studio. Initially it was a test to see if I’d be capable of …

A very interesting article…

Every week, Kris Rusch writes a blog post called the Business Rusch, talking about the writing industry from the business perspective. This week, after she posted it, her site got hacked. So, as a backup she posted it on another of her blogs. Then, that site got hacked, or so it appears. She’s now got the post on a third …

Distractions

B.J. Baye Blog Posts 2 Comments

One of the things I have the most difficulty with in my writing is distractions. For years, I have been constantly multitasking. For example, I might be chatting with someone in one window, writing a forum post in another, browsing a website I like in yet another, and often watching TV at the same time. So, when it comes time for me to sit down and write, I often write just a few words and my brain wants to go on to do something else.

Website Change Incoming… eventually

B.J. Baye Blog Posts, Uncategorized 1 Comment

I decided I wanted to do more with my site than a basic blog, as I expand my writing into my actual career. Specifically, I want to add the option to sign up to a mailing list, and I’d eventually like to add more features like a better landing page and (when I have something to sell) the ability to sell my …

Plans are smashed…

As I mentioned in my last post, I’d planned to finish a story to submit to WOTF next quarter, then start working on a novel. (I want to clarify that I’m in no way saying I’ve mastered short story writing yet, just that the skills I want to master involve novels, so I want to focus on that.) What I …
