Just signed up for NaNoWriMo 2021

I’ve signed up for this year’s NaNoWriMo already. For the past few months, I’ve had this fantasy going on in my head about a djinn ending up with a woman whose ideas of what’s right and proper as far as wishes go are foreign to it. The title is The Moon Djinn and I’m excited to start writing it! Maybe this time I’ll be a planner or at least a plantser and can get the whole thing finished in November….

First five drabbles posted!

First five drabbles posted!

Yay! My first five drabbles for Introspections have been posted! I’m enjoying these little slice-of-life scenes from canon. They’re nudging my muse to work on other things, like Brainstorm. I also reread almost all of The White Winds at fanfiction.net. The whole thing needs some tightening up, which I’ve been trying to do. The reread gave me more fodder for the sequel (yes, there is one!) which has been sitting in limbo for a bit now. I’ve also got an…

Writing drabbles again.

Writing drabbles again.

I’ve been editing my Brains-centric fic, Brainstorm, again as my muse allows. There’s more to write and tweaks to make before I can post it but it’s the most complete WIP I have. While doing this, I’ve started a new drabble book, this time for a favorite webcomic, Widdershins, by Kate Ashwin. It’s a semi-historical fantasy set in pre-Victorian England and updates every week. I follow it religiously and have bought the books on Kickstarter as they’ve come out. The…

Advice wanted.

Advice wanted.

I’ve recently upgraded Scrivener to version 3.0 (at a small fee) and have taken a good look at a Brains-centric fic from 2015. It’s actually mostly finished, for once, though it needs a hella lot of polishing. I think it’s something I could get my teeth into as far as editing is concerned. The files aren’t here but I’d post it here first once it was finished. The problem I have is: this could be slotted before or after Resolutions…

Got some more stuff posted

Got some more stuff posted

I managed to post another chapter of Burning Muses on this site and on Fanfiction.net as well. I’ve also made the decision about Promptings; the “chapters” will be stand-alone one-shots as that’s what I’ve done with all my other one-shot stories. I haven’t posted them at Fanfic yet, nor have I posted any of this at AO3. A couple more chapters of Burning Muses are nearly ready, though I’m not sure of one of them as it’s completely dialog and…

Finally feeling like writing

Finally feeling like writing

…or at least editing. Son #2 has finally achieved another level of adulthood: a driver’s license and a car of his own. This means the Girl doesn’t have to take him to work for 4 a.m. and I don’t have to pick him up in the early afternoon. It also means the Hubby can take our car more often instead of waiting for the bus. With COVID-19 still rampaging through the country and not being eligible for a vaccine (yet),…

Asking for advice!

Asking for advice!

I’ve just put up two one-shot stories under the collection title of Promptings. It’s under Short Stories. But my short stories aren’t a collection; they are actually multi-chapter stories, anywhere from two to nine chapters. So, should the one-shots be collected under short stories or as individual stories under One-Shots? Please give me some advice, either here, on Twitter, or on Tumblr. Many thanks!

Welp, that was a wash.

Welp, that was a wash.

For the first time since 2005, I did not make 50K at NaNoWriMo. Whether it was the lack of in-person events (during which I always get lots of words), my emotional state, a lack of inspiration, or the pressure of household duties, my total word count was 13,374. Maybe 2021 will be better for NaNoWriMo.

A little obstacle…

A little obstacle…

Someone (Willow) decided I shouldn’t write on my new NaNoWriMo novel tonight. I was originally going to do a series of short stories, one for each day, but I’m already behind word count-wise.
