2017 There isn't much future left to be had that will happen in 2017. Christmas and New Year's Eve for sure, but perhaps more? For me, I'll be finishing Stranded Moon. That much is a given. But also I will be getting a head start on a new project. I'm sure I've told you all … Continue reading The Future: 2017, 2018, Publishing, and More!
It seems that I may have been pushing myself a bit too far, and even stretching my intentions too far as well. Long time no see everyone! Days 7, 8 and 9 have come and gone (and nearly gone for 9). I actually had the pleasure to fall asleep on my laptop one night and … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Update, and More
It is on this most auspicious of days that I am here to check in with my NaNoWriMo update! My goal for today was to hit 10k words, and though I thought I wasn't going to make it I ended up passing it by. My day ended with a resting word count of 11,086. I … Continue reading The Fifth of NaNoWriMo
I was able to spend a little time this afternoon with some other writers participating in NaNoWriMo. We met at a local coffee shop and a great time was had. Of course, by a great time I mean we all sat on our laptops and wrote! It was the quietest but least lonely writing session … Continue reading Day 3 of NaNoWriMo
It is officially past midnight now, closing the books for day 2! I added 2,066 words to Stranded Moon, bringing the total to 4,370 words. I am working my way through what is currently marked as chapter two. I foresee starting chapter three tomorrow, Day 3, after spending a bit more developing the current event. … Continue reading NaNo Day 2 in the Books
The first day of NaNo has come and officially gone! How did your first day turn out? Are you working from a plan or winging it? let me know below in the comments! I'm working off a rough plan, formed by the Snowflake Method. So far for me has been great! The basic plot I … Continue reading Welcome to NaNoWriMo Day 1!
National Novel Writing Month is set to begin in just a few days! Last year was a great experience for me and I am thrilled to be joining along for the ride again this year. Though I have had many false starts to editing Killer Instinct, the product of NaNo last year, I feel that … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2017 Only Days Away!
Working with a program to not only edit, but also outline and organize a story is still very new to me. I've started working with yWriter recently, but I still don't know much about it yet. To be honest, I've never used any other word processor than Microsoft Word. Not sure how odd that is … Continue reading Editing
This week began for me with a bang, in the worst sense. We had a long week of visiting the hospital and plenty of worrying. During the time spent at home I've been working toward a slow but steady progress on Killer Instinct's editing. The way it was written was on the sloppy side, since I … Continue reading This Week… May 21st-27th
Blood dripped from the edge of the coffee table, soaking into the soft cushion of the sofa. The remains of his body lay heaped in a deformed pile at our feet, but he didn’t mind at all. Only I stood frozen by the stark depth of the red blood surrounding us. Sticky fingers under my chin startle as he slowly turns my gaze to meet his own.
