What? You weren’t awaiting this post? Well, I guess that means you should skip it and come back next week. Yes, I said week. We’ll talk about that at the end. Also, just the usual heads-up: This is a LOOOOOOOOOOONG blog entry. There is a lot for me to unpack. If you’re not interested in… Continue reading THE LONG-AWAITED NANOWRIMO RECAP POST
Hey there. Glad you stopped by, imaginary person. (I am not delusional enough to believe anyone ever reads this piece of garbage I spew out on a monthly basis.) As I write this, National Novel Writing Month is twelve hours away, and I am feeling eager and ready while still not exactly sure how the… Continue reading OFF TO THE RACES, AND THEN SOME
In the wake of last month’s entry, I am left with the taste of anger and vitriol in my mouth, and some of the things happening in politics are not making it any better. However, I keep telling myself this is not the place to spew my political beliefs (though they will creep in, as… Continue reading IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN!
What you are looking at is the cover to the book I have been tinkering with since November, 2018. Okay, that was the month I wrote the first draft. People donated to my NaNoWriMo fundraiser to have characters named after them — characters who would meet brutal and bloody ends. I purchased this cover before… Continue reading COMEDY OF TERRORS: COMING VERY SOON!
I know it’s bad form to brag, but it’s true. I won NaNoWriMo 2019 with 55,555 words. This is win #15 in as many attempts. This will be another long recap post. As before, if you want to skip the rest, you have the gist of it. For everyone else, let’s do this in handy… Continue reading ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER WIN
Just a quick hello to let you know that the Sekrit Projekt™ I had mentioned in the last entry will be happening. I am still farther behind on it than I would like to be, but I have four of the five interviews I need already in the can… so if I don’t do it,… Continue reading COMING NEXT WEEK: A NEW PODCAST
It’s that time again! Autumn shifts the color palette in many parts of the country, and Orange is the new Yellow as October dawns. You know what that means… We have survived another trip around the sun. This blog turned a year old at some point last month, but more importantly, October means that National… Continue reading WRIMO IS COMING
Hey, look — it’s an image! Just don’t get too excited, I’m still doing it wrong. WRITING IN PUBLIC After the last entry’s whine session, I decided to kick my own butt and re-join the world of Camp NaNoWriMo. I don’t recall offhand, but I think this might be the first time I have done… Continue reading IT’S COMING… REALLY
So… hi there. Here in the northern hemisphere of the globe, Spring is about to… well, spring. The cold and clouds of a rainy winter have dissipated in Southern California in favor of that hateful ball of light in the sky this region is known for. Soon temperatures will climb enough that my Grumpy jacket… Continue reading LITTLE OF THIS, LOT OF GAMES
WARNING: This post is going to be extraordinarily long, so I’m going to do us all a favor and not beat around the bush. NaNoWriMo is over. I won. Again. #14. (Winning just means that I wrote 50,000 or more words in the month of November.) If you want to stop reading now, you have… Continue reading IT HAS ENDED
