Camp NaNoWriMo starts…

In less than half an hour. I’ve set my word count expectations low at 20K so I’m more likely to reach the goal. I can’t bring myself to write it all over again, but I’ll make sure I only count those words I actually write and nothing from my previous drafts. Here’s a little excerpt from my first chapter. You can expect these every couple of days. Feedback is much appreciated!

A little incentive…

A little incentive…

Well, in my last installment, I talked about the book of short stories my mother-in-law had written and how I’d edited and had them printed up in an amazing quality book for her. (It really is amazing! Thanks, Blurb!) She was ever so happy about it and encouraged me to do the same for one of my own stories. So, yesterday I got a letter in the mail from my father-in-law. Inside was a generous check and a cryptic line, “For…

It’s here!

It’s here!

My mother-in-law’s book has arrived, a full week and a half ahead of schedule! I think it looks great and I’m so excited, almost as excited as if I’d written it myself! Now I have even more impetus to write my own book! The 14-point type is really readable, even for those with vision issues. The cover is pretty simple, black and white with a light gray background. (I found the picture at freeimages.com and I give credit to the…

That latest Thunderbirds fanfic drabble? No idea where that particular scenario came from. I have a vague notion that the Hood (Gaat) stole some plans and Jeremiah Tuttle (from “The Impostors” episode) is sent to retrieve them. Maybe the Hood crashed in Jeremiah’s territory or something. I know it’s rather farfetched to say the Hood’s mesmeric powers don’t work on Jeremiah but somehow, it makes sense, too. In any case, that improbable scene is what came to mind when I…

NaNoWriMo2015 is in the can!

I won with 51726 words in a story I may never look at again. We’ll see. After I do all my wrap-up (like posting winners, corralling stragglers, putting up the results of our state-wide word war, and writing thank you notes to venue hosts), I’ll have a couple of down days before plunging back in and picking up on things I’ve let slide for far, far too long. The Thank God It’s Over party will be Saturday and I’ve remembered…

Doing some menu clean up.

Doing some menu clean up.

With only nine chapters of The White Winds posted, I find the chapter titles—if left as a sub-item to the novel title in the menu—are already running off the page. Not a good thing when there are eighty all told in just the one story! So, in order to simplify matters, I’m removing the menu chapter sub-item links for just the novels. If you click on the novel title, it’ll take you to an index page where you’ll find links…
