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…

More updates!

More updates!

I’ve posted two one-shots at fanfiction.net today: No Man Is an Island and Making Waves. Plus, I’ve updated Burning Muses with a new chapter: Calliope, Chief among the Muses. I won’t be posting this chapter at fanfiction.net for at least a week. I’d like readers to see it here first! There’s at least one more chapter of Burning Muses written that I like, though it’s all dialogue. It’s for Thalia, the Muse of Comedy, and no, it’s not about Gordon!…

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.

The muse awakens!

The muse awakens!

You’d think that, in this time of shelter-in-place orders, I’d be writing up a storm, editing my work, finishing my works-in-progress. You’d be wrong. I’ve been sewing–making masks and finishing a very old quilt project. I’ve been playing video games. Doing chores. Gardening. Worrying about my parents. Chauffeuring the essential workers in my family. I’ve been ordering groceries as my kids won’t let me shop. I finally broke quarantine the other day, after the hair salons opened. But I haven’t…

Forgot about this little one-shot.

Forgot about this little one-shot.

Among Thunderbirds fans, both in the UK and worldwide, September 30th is “Thunderbirds Day”. It commemorates the first airing of “Trapped in the Sky” back in 1965. For many fanfiction writers, October is “Whumptober”, where the entire month is dedicated to stories whumping on (or beating up) a fandom’s main characters. I wasn’t thinking of Whumptober when I wrote the one-shot, but it may have had some small influence. I just thought about why a day might have been named…

Finally, chapter four!

Finally, chapter four!

In an effort to return to regular writing, I finally reread and tweaked the fourth chapter of Not All Dead and posted it at Archive of Our Own, Fanfiction.net, and here. It means the story is complete at last. I found it a real struggle to finish as I wasn’t sure I’d gone the right way with the chapter but after rereading it, I was actually pleased with what I’d come up with. So, with a touch or two of…

Fire drakes!

Fire drakes!

I’m at 11730, which is just past day 7’s goal of 11666. It took four 15 minute word wars to get there! My hands are sore; not sure if it’s from the cold of the house or a touch of arthritis. There’s a lot I could talk about when it comes to my books but I thought I might discuss something I need to research some more: fire drakes!

Another character excerpt–Siobhan Shaunessy

Another character excerpt–Siobhan Shaunessy

This particular character is from a middle-grade novel I wrote several years ago–the one NaNoWriMo novel I came closest to actually finishing. The story itself takes place in an alternate history, one where much of the Americas were still under colonial rule into the late 1800s and the sciences were just beginning to supersede magic in some areas. I liken it to a mixture of Harry Potter, X-Men, and the gaslamp fantasy Girl Genius with a soupçon of steampunk stirred in. I’ve…
