Yes, I have won NaNoWriMo on the very last day! No, the story is not complete, but at least I know where it’s going. Yes, I’m taking a few days off because I have a lot to do! That’s all for now!

I posted the first chapter! It’s not betaread yet, so if you see any problems–whether they’re grammar, spelling, or possible canon errors–let me know. I’m really, really excited about it! I’m sure I won’t get any responses at my site, but I might at Tumblr or Facebook. Also, if anyone is interested in betareading (that’s proofreading/editing for those outside the fanfiction community) I’d be incredibly grateful. I haven’t sent this to my usual beta because I’m not sure how well-versed she…

Super brief update.

Super brief update.

Despite having some painful medical tests today (fresh baselines for the new neurologist), I am where I should be: 15000 on the nose. I won’t be putting up anything about my story today; I’ll say something tomorrow for sure, though. I’ll just leave you with a picture of my new friend, Darla, and my rocket duck, Percy. Darla’s expression will probably make her a good guilt dragon for the rest of NaNo. Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2016 Linda BennettAll Rights ReservedOriginal content here is published under…

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…

Well, the shortcut still has a few bugs in it…

At least, I think it might. Someone was trying to access chapter 12 of The White Winds and couldn’t. Kept coming up with “unknown page”. Doing that too many times throttled their IP, too. Not sure just why, but chapter 11 and 12 had rendered the HTML markup for the <> symbols in the posted page instead of the symbols themselves. I’ve gone in and tweaked those two chapters and tested the links to make sure they’re functioning properly. I’ll…

Yes, I’ve updated a fic!

Just a quick post to say that I’ve updated Burning Muses with a new chapter. I thought this one was finished long ago, but the idea of Scott describing how he dances brought up the Muse of Dance, Terpsichore. So I finally wrote it up after getting a proper hook from a recent family wedding. As you can see, the word count meters at NaNoWriMo have reset. Less than two weeks to go before it starts! I think I’m going…

Beginning to get the hang of this theme thing

Beginning to get the hang of this theme thing

I’ve been quiet over the past months as I’ve worked on this site on and off. My goal is to shape this into my writer’s platform, using it to eventually promote my fantasy fiction–eventually being the operative word here. I’m going to replace my personal fanfiction site with this one, too. The original has served me well; unfortunately, my coding skills are not the best and it’s beginning to break down on the actual story pages. The one-shots and smaller chapter…
