4 The Words is a site that uses gamification to help writers. The setup is like that of an RPG where you have to fight monsters to collect items. Each monster has a time limit and a word count you have to beat, as seen below. This is just one of many monsters. I find it fun for distracting me while I write, and it is a great tool to use if you want to force yourself to write so many words a day. The time limits are generous, as long as you don't stop writing. I enjoy the site quite a bit. Feel free to visit my author site and blog at: James G Patton's Author Site

I apologize for the gap between my posts, but since I published Office Wars Episode 2 on August 1st, I've had a lot of things going on all at once. Kids starting school, Gencon, and more. My monthly trips to Atlanta started back up too, for my day job. Ok that aside. I have several updates. Office Wars I have the next two books mapped out, and even have part of the first draft on the third book done. I found some of the jokes becoming stale, so I decided to take a break and pen out the framework for another series, see below. I'm still working on this, but I want to make sure I capture the same momentum as the other two books. You can get your copy of Episode 1 or 2 here.
Hey everyone, just reaching out to let everyone know I haven't dropped off. Give you a few updates. First, Seventh Talon was pulled while I work on getting some of the edits done, and working out the stories for the next books. Not abandoning it, just need to fix some things. Second, I'm working on Lantern Online as we speak. Trying to get my edits done and figure out what I want to do with future books in that line. Right now Lantern Online is being developed as a stand alone novel, but I have an idea of running multiple story lines in here based on different types of characters. Then at some point doing a team up trilogy, and at that point you might see Bran from Office Wars making an appearance. Office Wars - I'm working the omnibus for this, it'll be a little different than the original story, as I'll change most of the logues into memory fragments and rearrange a few things. All of this in preparation for getting an audio in place for it. Thanks for
