Writing Update/Library Card

So I hadn’t realized my library card had expired. For someone who considers it a more important ID than a driver’s license, this is significant. As I was renewing it, I discovered that my library has a “responsible party” signature on cards issued to young readers. And since I’ve been a patron hither and thitherContinue reading “Writing Update/Library Card”

Midwinter Stars, Dune, and Ink…another writing update

I’m quite terrible at astronomy. Always have been. Even before I became a nearsighted creature from too many books and the sky went blurry-blurry. But I do love a sky full of stars. It doesn’t matter what their names are or what pattern they make in their dance, I just find the night beautiful. MaybeContinue reading “Midwinter Stars, Dune, and Ink…another writing update”

Writing Update: December 18, 2020

How are things in my post-NaNoWriMo little world, you ask? Odd. Distinctly odd. Currently in the midst of arguing with one of my characters to the point we’re not speaking much. And even though it’s awkward, this is an improvement. I am not crying every afternoon I try to write over the possibility of hisContinue reading “Writing Update: December 18, 2020”

NaNoWriMo Recap

The end of NaNoWriMo 2020! Plus three days of not posting anything because I really needed sleep. Final stats? November 30th Word Count: 94,889 words Total Mugs of Tea: …frankly, I’ve lost count. Nights writing after midnight: Perhaps a better question would be how many nights I didn’t write past midnight. Which I still can’tContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Recap”

NaNoWriMo: Preparing for the End

It’s November 29th. NaNoWriMo 2020 officially closes at midnight tomorrow. I am not ready for this. Not because I’m vastly behind on words–I’ve written my 50,000 and then some. What I’m not ready for is the end. Finishing the novel that keeps taking more and more twists and turns and muddying the plot so IContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Preparing for the End”

NaNoWriMo Writing Update: The 50,000

Cue two o’clock in the morning me, typing away before crashing hard. Today was the day.
I won NaNoWriMo. For the third year running. Only this time it’s ten days early.
I should be celebrating. Throwing confetti in the air and treating myself to chocolate puddings.
It hasn’t quite registered in my brain, I think.

A Pre-NaNoWriMo/Harry Potter Ramble

So happy Eve of NaNoWriMo, Reformation Day, Blue Moon, Halloween, and Time-Change. Busy holiday. As I write this, there are two hours remaining to the start of NaNoWriMo. And I am guilty at this particular moment of having every intention to stay awake to meet it. Ready for the madness. On the other hand, withContinue reading “A Pre-NaNoWriMo/Harry Potter Ramble”
