Conflict – A scene from the scrap pile

Loading Likes...

When you’re a cadet at the Academy, there isn’t much reason for conflict when you fall in love. Unless, of course, when author-god creates it. I ultimately decided against forcing conflict upon my two innocent little cadets. They should be allowed a time of happy butterflies to build a strong relationship that will be stable enough to withstand anything I decide to throw at them later in their life. But at one point those two discovered their love for each[…]

Eventually I decided to let them kiss alone, after their first date. Way[…]

Attraction – An Alpha & Omega out-take

Loading Likes...

The craft of writing demands a lot of re-writing, shuffling and cutting of words, scenes, sometimes whole chapters. What follows is a scene between Nate and Jake that didn’t make it into the final version. Some ideas re-appear in the locker room scene that got written and published instead. Originally, Alpha and Omega had a lot more plot-lines and a lot more characters. I’m looking forward to write more of Nate’s friendship with Jake in “Rocket Sisters”. *** The sports[…]
