Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017

 Yeah, I’m trying the April session of Camp NaNoWriMo this year. Since I haven’t finished my last chapter of Not All Dead, that’s my first priority. (I am close, very close to finishing it). After that, I’m going to work on my sequel to The White Winds, titled Where All Love Begins. I tried to write this during a previous Camp session but didn’t get too far into it. Those bits and pieces are put aside so they won’t be…

A little fangasm!

A little fangasm!

Within just a day, I’ve had the pleasure of hauling out my Thunderbirds knowledge (with all the attendant books and other paraphernalia) to help a couple of fellow fanfic writers and personal friends. It was certainly fun, especially all the stuff about Alan Tracy’s educational background. Add to this my posting the first chapter of one of my short stories (Burning Muses) at AO3 and uploading a new post to my RP, and I’m full of Thunderbirds at the moment….

AO3

AO3

My friend lillehafrue sent me an invite to An Archive of Our Own (aka AO3) and I accepted. (Thanks, lille!) Posted a couple of small one shots, neither of them in my primary fandom. Since I’ve posted at eFiction sites, the interface wasn’t as daunting as it would be for those who haven’t and I have some knowledge of HTML coding, which helps. The “warnings” business was more than a little confusing. I ended up deleting my first one shot…

Weirdness in my writing worlds.

Weirdness in my writing worlds.

First, I’m supposed to be working on my 2007 NaNo novel during August’s Camp NaNoWriMo. Unfortunately, between my anniversary and various shopping trips, I really haven’t done much. I’ve also had the problem of things popping up from my planned 2011 NaNo novel, which doesn’t have a title yet. In an attempt to jumpstart finishing the 2007 story, Moonstrike!, I’ve started posting some bits I know are done at Fan Nation. I’m posting it there first because, frankly, the Thunderbirds…

eFiction for the FanFiction.net user

eFiction for the FanFiction.net user

I’ve been helping my good friend Lillehafrue copy some of her stories to Lunaescence Archives. She’s pretty upset (as am I) with the way FanFiction.net has added those interstitial ads that you can’t X out, and wants a new place to post her stories. Now, Lunaescence uses a variation on eFiction, a popular archiving software. Quite a few of the smaller (and a couple of bigger) archives use it. The trouble is: it’s nothing like FanFiction.net. It has a limited…

I shouldn’t be up this late

I shouldn’t be up this late

Not if I want to go to church tomorrow, as I should. I managed to type out that little starter scene for The White Winds, chapter 5. Hobbeth liked it and gave me the idea for making it necessary. I fiddled with my livejournal, giving it a fresh look and adding a couple of entries. Got out “may we please use your fic” requests for Classic Thunderbirds Showcase, but I still need an email address for Rathead. Hopefully Rain can…

Chapter 18 is up.

Chapter 18 is up.

And I hope it’s well received. I spent some time this morning reviewing a half-baked movie-verse fic called Abduction. Another of the "Alan is kidnapped" genre that’s so prevalent in the category today. I have no idea why I did it; it’s not like the author is going to actually sit down and rethink her story. They never do. She’ll probably email me, be polite and say, "Well, you make some good points but the story’s already written and I’m…
