About Me

Hello, my name is Steph. I’ve been writing and publishing since 1988 and I’ve been in the games industry since 1996. I wrote a little bit more on the About Me page. This is my sometimes-updated website. Enjoy.

  • *hic*

    Minor edits to One this morning. Much work on the Other Project. Bed now. Oi vey. It’s late. 🙁 and I know the spark inside your eyes was just the match i used to set myself on fire Continue reading

  • bite me, neurosis!

    You know what? YOU KNOW WHAT? I’m keeping chapter one! And chapter two! I’ll re-edit them and highlight the stuff I think will grab my readers’s attention, but after writing a new treatment and realizing it is neither better nor worse than the last version, I am KEEPING THE ORIGINALS! TAKE THAT, ANXIETY! You big,… Continue reading

  • line edits done

    …now I just have to enter ten chapters worth of notes and corrections. And re-write one and two. And it’s done. For now. Continue reading

  • chapter 23-b

    Much-needed character development, but…now chapter twenty-three has a baby sister, and that’s not orthogonal (all my chapters are 9-11 pages long, while this one is 6 pages — ack!). Eh. I guess some things just won’t be orthogonal. Still a little sick. Bed now. Continue reading

  • dammit

    Sick. Sinus infection. You see what happens when I clean? God strikes me down! At any rate, I’m going to bed before things can get any worse. No writing or plotting tonight. Foo. Continue reading

  • night off from firebird

    Took a night off from revisions. I now know how to incorporate the parts of the jenga I liked (that were sorely missing) into the story without completely destroying it. How do you stop thinking about one project? Well, it’s like that old adage: the best way to get over someone is to get under… Continue reading

  • chapter 23

    I’ve either committed Jenga on the story, or I’ve done something good with it. I suspect Jenga. I’m going to sleep on it and consider. It’s a shame, because I kind of liked it, but it’s a lot of words and rarrarrrrgh. Nevermind. Sleep on it! Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear Ghosts… Continue reading

  • through twenty

    Edited one, entered two. I may need to take a night off. I realized I have once again worked through a week without a break, and that most of last week is a blur, and I nearly failed to pay my electric and gas because of it. Urgh. Bad Steph. I need a man-servant badly.… Continue reading

  • line edits through 21

    Unfortunately, today was complicated because (as predicted) chapters 20 and 21 required some reworking. When I was a young shaver I was on the San Clemente High School swim team. I loved the swimming, I hated the politics and cliques. One of the things I loved was the feeling of being suspended elsewhere. Underwater is… Continue reading

  • through eighteen

    Revised, entered. I can tell I’m going to rewrite one…again. Upstairs to start on nineteen. Continue reading
