Obligatory Pre-NaNo Post

I'm a pantser so there won't be any tips or tricks in this post on how to prepare for next month's writing festival. There also won't be any rants about how harried I feel with the start time looming on the horizon and how I have no idea what I'm going to write. You see, … Continue reading Obligatory Pre-NaNo Post

On My Mark, Getting Set…

Alright you guys, challenge starts tomorrow. And I can honestly say, I'm already freaking out a bit. You know why? I'm making changes in my lifestyle; attempting to establish new habits. Always a daunting task. I finally got my Fit Bit Aria scale linked to wi-fi and all. Stepped on it and uh, ouch, lol. … Continue reading On My Mark, Getting Set…

Camp Journal – Day 27: The Summit of Mount Rough Draft

The view from the summit of Mount Rough Draft doesn't look anything like that picture there, but I thought this came close to capturing the feeling of having made it to the top (word count 50,680; I've got a few more thousand to write to finish the story though). I'm going to sit here for … Continue reading Camp Journal – Day 27: The Summit of Mount Rough Draft

Potential Title

Working hard to hit the finish line and claim my badge today. Don't see any reason to drag it out until the end of the week. Besides, I have a few hours of "don't have to do anything" today so might as well knock this out and have the rest of the week to veg. … Continue reading Potential Title

O.M.G.

So, I'm typing away at my Camp NaNo project right? Just going along as I usually do, mostly with my eyes closed listening (transcribing) as my characters deal with whatever situation they have me writing about at the time and then this happens, “And could it be you’ve felt guilty about leaving me all those … Continue reading O.M.G.

Think I’m Done “Fundraising”

It's down to the last four days of the 2 Legit So We Can Quit (our day jobs) Booster campaign. We're one shirt from half-way to our sale's goal of 50 shirts. Now, I'm by no means "throwing in the towel". It's quite possible that we'll hit critical mass and something will spark sales to skyrocket … Continue reading Think I’m Done “Fundraising”

Quick Update (Supplement to previous post)

After restructure, cutting, pasting, and just as I predicted, not being able to find the section of notes I clearly remember having typed a year or so ago, I'm about 5K words behind where I'm "supposed" to be on day 18 of Camp NaNo.             Oh well. The story's coming … Continue reading Quick Update (Supplement to previous post)

Camp Journal, Day 13

Passed a milestone on the trail today. According to the sign post, I've just entered the halfway mark up the trail, give or take a step or two (word count 22,074).  Slow and steady, it feels good to be making such progress.
