Tweaks and tails

Tweaks and tails

Had to take a couple of hours to tweak all the links involved in The White Winds so navigation from chapter to chapter works right. It’s hard because the chapters are automatically numbered at both fanfiction.net and AO3 but I haven’t been doing that here. I probably should, simply to make it clearer. I plan on updating chapters here on Mondays and Thursdays, just to be consistent. Readers at AO3 like it and though they could read the whole thing…

That I’ve been posting more of The White Winds lately. Not so much for this site but for my account at AO3 (An Archive Of Our Own). Some of my followers there have been asking for it and I’m finally in a head-space to oblige. Life has been depressing lately. I’ve fallen four times this year; not bad enough to break anything, but painful enough for me to start using my cane more consistently. I’ve had to add a nephrologist…

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…

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…

Running a blog ain’t easy.

Running a blog ain’t easy.

For the past few weeks, perhaps even months, this site has been pretty much inaccessible. I have no idea what caused it in the first place but I was getting errors in my Jetpack plug-in after a WordPress update. It was driving me nuts! I poked Jetpack. I poked my webhost. I was like a human-sized porcupine to those brave folks. I deactivated all my plug-ins. I removed my browser extensions. Finally, just tonight, I figured it out, and with…

I’m a Hugo Award winner… sort of…

Just found out today that An Archive of Our Own (or AO3 for short) has won a Hugo Award for “Best Related Work”. Yes, the entire site won! And since I post there, I share in the award! I would love a little lapel pin reproduction of the Hugo Award rocket to commemorate the win. In other news, writing has been slow to non-existent lately. I’m not sure why; I’m still getting ideas but I’m having trouble putting my butt…

Playing around…

Playing around…

I was tired of the old theme and decided to change it up a bit. I hope you like it! Also haven’t been writing much, either. We’ve had a death in the family, illnesses, and accidents, including one involving me and our now-totaled truck. (I miss it!) The new SUV is okay; it’ll hold the whole family for a trip north when necessary. My plan is to try Camp NaNoWriMo again to get me writing anything. On alternating days, I’m…

Linda, you’re famous!

Linda, you’re famous!

A good friend said that to me when I posted a link to a blog post I’d written for NaNoWriMo! They do a “Road to NaNo” series leading up to the start of NaNoWriMo and ask Municipal Liaisons from a variety of areas to write them. I said I’d be willing and they picked me! Here it is! My co-ML and I are getting things ready for the 2018 season. I’ll be writing a sequel to my superhero novel of…

I have lots of Kudos!

I have lots of Kudos!

With the premiere of The Incredibles 2, I’ve noticed a lot of notifications from An Archive of Our Own for my short story, “The Visit”. That particular archive allows guests or signed-in members to leave “kudos” on any story. This is the first time a short story of mine at AO3 has generated such interest and I’m chuffed about it! From the comments, it seems I’ve been able to satisfactorily wrap up a plot thread from the first movie: what…

When art imitates life

When art imitates life

I’m not doing so well at Camp. I’ve not been editing or writing as long as I should, or even any time at all during the day. Too much on my mind, really. Housework, being the agony aunt for both the in-laws and the parents, trying to get some estimates on fixing up the house (and daydreaming about how my kitchen might look). There’s a lot swirling around me and writing has been put on the back burner. However, I’ve…
