6 days late but at the halfway point!

6 days late but at the halfway point!

Finally hit the halfway point on the 20th but it’s now the 21st here. I still have a long way to go to catch up but I’m working on it! Part of the issue is my fumbly fingers and my inability to jail my inner editor. The issue is mainly spelling; I know from experience that if I don’t get something at least approximating the word I intend, I may lose it on a later reread and spellcheck.  At least…

I’m about a day behind, I think.

I’m about a day behind, I think.

Actually, I know I’m a day or more behind on NaNoWriMo, but I am writing every day, which is a good thing. I’m also working on a major craft project: a hand latch hooked rug for a family member. The pattern is derived from a rug I saw online, with changed-up colors. The Girl helped me create a grid for it, one with properly-sized openings and I added to the grid by counting off by tens and marking those on…

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…

A little obstacle…

A little obstacle…

Someone (Willow) decided I shouldn’t write on my new NaNoWriMo novel tonight. I was originally going to do a series of short stories, one for each day, but I’m already behind word count-wise.

Still behind…

Still behind…

But after writing pretty much all day, I’m closer to catching up. At the end of the day, I’ve written 5K. Still need to write more and, frankly, a lot of what I’m writing now will be cut later. The book should ideally span a married couple’s lifetime together but I don’t think it can. It’s probably easier to do this in scenes, though, than any of my fantasy novels have ever been. I did do a little research and…

I am behind.

I am behind.

It’s obvious from the widget on the homepage but I’m averaging about 1K words per day. Being home is part of the problem, I know. I look around and see how much housework needs to be done. Another part is my inner editor. She just won’t let me write without making corrections. The only time I can put her in a box is when I’m at a write-in and when she’s in the box, my typing is horrible! Still, the…

The perils of November.

The perils of November.

I’m wearing these “recovery gloves” (seriously, that’s what the manufacturer calls them) because my fingers and knuckles are screaming for relief. Not only am I typing my NaNo novel up, but I just finished a 6-foot long knitted scarf I made for a Christmas gift. (My first ever! Go me!) I expect to have a lot more pain as November rolls by because the people I love are getting mostly handmade crafts for Christmas. I also expect I’ll be taking…

NaNoWriMo 2018 day 1

NaNoWriMo 2018 day 1

Well, I’ve started my story, Superhuman Rights, which is a sequel to last year’s Superhuman Resources. Same main character, Jessamine “Nimiety” Spaulding-Welch. Different setting at the moment. She’s retired and helping out the first responders in her town as a sheriff’s officer. I have the idea that some kind of weaponized virus is killing supers in her old place of employment and she’s the one who has to go in to find out how and why. I also want her…

Two more days to go!

Two more days to go!

And only one more write-in. I’m up to date on my word count (as of 11/28) and the story is sorta starting to peter out. Not that it’s finished, I think, but my strongest scenes are written, for the most part. A problem with pantsing a story instead of planning it out. I need to start copying it to a text file for validation purposes so I know exactly how many words I have. I also want to run spell-check…
