Pitchapalooza!/Writing Update

Today was the day! Twenty books randomly chosen from National November Writing Month participants were pitched to The Book Doctors. In a live video stream, those twenty lucky pitches are reviewed, and two of those have a chance to be sent to an official publisher. Was I ready for this? Was I waiting two hoursContinue reading “Pitchapalooza!/Writing Update”

Writing Update: March 3, 2020

Writing Status: Unblocked, but at the most inconvenient times. Why is it we have our most brilliant ideas when we have no pens? Or paper? Or are trying to study/work/are being observed by the more sane non-writerly portion of the population (is “more sane” even the right term for that)? I shouldn’t have dazzling ideasContinue reading “Writing Update: March 3, 2020”

Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo

Well, it’s December now. All of the groggy little writers who spent a month writing 50,000 words are sleeping in and waking up to see the world hasn’t fallen to shivers while they’ve been away. Everything’s much the same. Except, of course, for those of us who made the journey. Victors or not in theContinue reading “Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo”

Writing Update: The Last Day of NaNoWriMo

50,000 words, 30 days, a lot of caffeine, not a whole lot of sleep. The challenge ends today. We update our word count for the last time. Am I ready for this? On paper, yes. Word count is at over 55,000 words. Story is a mess, but I think that’s to be expected. But there’sContinue reading “Writing Update: The Last Day of NaNoWriMo”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?

So I actually already finished my goal of 50,000 words for the month. Two days ago? Not sure how that happened. Not sure how I feel about it, either. No bells and whistles and whooping went off in my head. No banshee-screams like when I’ve discovered news of favorable contest results, loud enough to frightenContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 23

The adventure of writing 50,000 words in 30 days is almost over for another year. As in 4,000 words/7 days close. I don’t mean to say the “novel” I’ve been working on is finished. I’m not sure anyone looking at it would think that. But I’ve been doing what I set out to do. JustContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 23”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 18

Ready for another flurried update on the Search for 50,000 Words (in 30 days)? I’ve been meaning to post more, but I think you can guess why that didn’t happen. Plus I had some other adventures this month to be blogged about soon…enjoy a little clue here, if you like. Anyway. I love the littleContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 18”

Writing Update: Nine Days of NaNoWriMo

So we’re just over a week into the writing madness of NaNoWriMo–50,000 words in 30 days. While I probably don’t have the time/shouldn’t be stealing the time for this…well, the lure was too much. I’m not sure if my experience should encourage or discourage someone thinking about doing it. I kind of think of NaNoContinue reading “Writing Update: Nine Days of NaNoWriMo”

Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019

So in between working on NaNoWriMo (I’m still alive after 18,000 words in 6 days! Ha!), here is the promised blog post about Grand Bookish Adventure no. 2: Dragonfest Renaissance faire. Even though it’s been a couple weeks since it happened. As word of explanation, I am a strolling player at the festivals–wander around, wearContinue reading “Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019”

Catching Up: Book Haul

So as an apology for not blogging as often lately, and for the absentee blogger I am almost certainly going to become during NaNoWriMo, I am going to bend one of my rules and blog about my life instead of books or things that didn’t happen or someone else’s stories. That way you can understandContinue reading “Catching Up: Book Haul”
