So a week ago right about now I finished the first draft of my NaNoWriMo novel. See my fancy badge over there? Yay me! At the time it all felt rather underwhelming, honestly. Almost anti-climactic. But since then, and you’ll think this is silly I have no doubt, but since […]

Well, this isn’t really the next step, its a few steps out, but space is limited, first come, first served, and all that rot. I just bought a membership to the World Fantasy Convention that is being held next November (yes, a year off) in Austin, TX. If you’re a […]

Having finished writing my NaNoWriMo novel, I sat down to read the final chapters of No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty. The book is all about writing a novel in a month, and though it says you can pick any old month, it was clearly designed to promote and/or […]

Not a lot of words tonight, but this time it was by design. My mid-week slack-off night. After all, Lost is on!

I had a lot of things I wanted to do tonight, and figured I wouldn’t get much writing done. Still I sat down now and then, out of force of habit. The laptop say there beckoning to me. And I ended up getting some words down. Sweet. Hitting 50K is […]

After the weekend I’d found I’d written myself into a corner. So tonight I spent some time plot-doctoring by throwing ideas around with a friend, then sketching out a rough outline for the rest of the novel. So not a lot of words tonight, but I accomplished more than what […]
