I'm still chugging along, somehow managing to keep myself on par. This is probably one of my better writing experiences I've ever had. Today I squeezed out 3584 words, bringing my November total to 14226, or almost a thousand over par. No need to pat me on my back. I've already done so. I don't know … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2015: Day 8
National Novel Writing Month is now going strong, how are you doing? Day one is winding down, and though many are still writing furiously, I'm done for the day. I surpassed my goal for the day at a cool 3017. I'm almost a day ahead! Remind me not to get cocky. I could easily lose … Continue reading NaNoWrimo 2015: Day 1
I earned my halo today. I'm an angel! Okay, not really. I donated to NaNoWriMo earlier this evening and now I have my halo on my avatar. Cool, huh? I think so. Though it's free to participate, NaNo depends on writers, like you and me, to help keep them going. I'm sure there are a … Continue reading My Halo
NaNoWriMo 2015 is a month away. Are you ready? I know I'm not. I have no idea what I'm going to write about. I have nothing to say. There are a few ideas rattling deep in my head, but I don't know if any are the stories I want to tell, and if they are … Continue reading Leading up to NaNoWriMo 2015
I bought myself a composition notebook yesterday after I left my writer's group. I didn't hadn't planned on it, but I needed to buy a few things at the store and I saw that they had begun to set Back to School. I decided to check it out and lo and behold, I saw a … Continue reading Giving planning another go
I attended my first Comic Con today, which was held in Amarillo, TX. Yellow City Comic Con was a small gathering of who you would expect would attend, various nerds and geeks celebrating their particular awesomeness. There were artists selling their artwork, most, oddly enough, focused on comic book characters, steampunk enthusiasts, cosplayers, authors trying … Continue reading Yellow City Comic Con
My current to read stack of books beside my bed. There's only nine, but there are several more on my Kindle. And yes, that's a Stephanie Meyer's book on top of the stack. Don't judge me. P.S. My birthday's coming up. Just saying.
I'm currently at the Georgia St. Roasters, a coffee shop in Amarillo. I'm still working on my rewrites, struggling to fix one of my characters. I haven't been as diligent on my writing as I should have been, but I'm back on track, again, and I hope to keep up my momentum. I just finished … Continue reading Fixing Gwyn
As I try to rewrite this tangled mess that I laughably call a book, I've come to realize that writers are a masochistic bunch. Luckily I am indeed a masochist, or at least that's what I took away from the tangled mess of what once was my love life.
It bleeds! It hurts! It - it's not that bad. Huh! I expected it to be harder to cut things out, but one I started, it was quite easy. I've just now started chapter three, and there's one section that I want to move until later, but there's a chance I'll cut the scene completely. … Continue reading It's not as bad as I thought
