|| I started November with a decent plan for NaNoWriMo that allowed for a 25k personal goal, with the easy addition of an extra 25k as a stretch goal. I wrote a novella a couple years ago that was begging to be at least a trilogy, with each volume needing to be right around 25k … Continue reading 645
|| And BAM!, just like that it’s NaNoWriMo time. I’m opting for something a little different this time around though and shan’t be doing a traditional project. Not even a little bit. Instead I’m going to focus on finishing the various short stories that I have languishing around in 70-90%. My ultimate goal will at … Continue reading 2018 NaNoWriMo Start
|| I wrote about my approach to this year's NaNoWriMo but not in terms of my actual workflow. I have been writing via a combination of Google Docs and Libre Office, and creating a new document for each chapter and or day that I write. At the end of each day I have been entering … Continue reading Crises Averted!
aka Embracing the Suck || I am once again actively doing NaNoWriMo, and having more fun with it than I have ever had before. I always seem to have more story than words, and between my work, life, and other creative interests getting ever more words to page has often been a struggle, so in … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Growth and Goals
|| Another November has come and gone, taking with it this year's NaNoWriMo challenge. I have won it twice in the past, amassing just over 50k words in Novembers past, so I have certainly proved that I can put my butt in the chair and bang away on the laptop. What I have not done … Continue reading Na NO WriMo
|| NaNoWriMo is once again almost upon us, and I will once again be diving in. In my imagination I'll be able to write a couple times a day, midmorning and early evening, perhaps. Writing with the ease and wit of a seasoned author, I'll smile as I type. Similes will radiate like a warm, … Continue reading A Trifecta of #NaNoWriMo Inspiration
The Twist of Mind The Brass Automaton Saga Part VII This saga was started by Mark Gardner over at Article 94. He explains the origins of this Snow White / Terminator mashup as a preface to Part I, “The Brass Automaton.” I would recommend starting there. I contributed Parts III and IV before Mark took … Continue reading The Twist of Mind
The Writer's Conversation A few years back I had the pleasure of meeting the ridiculously talented Tony Noland, when his work brought him Portland ways. I offered to show him around the city a bit, but we didn't make much past Powell's coffee shop, where we talked for quite awhile about writing. This was, perhaps, … Continue reading The Writer’s Conversation
I am once again diving into National Novel Writing Month! My story is titled, Intersecting the Abyss. Here is the synopsis from my NaNoWriMo page: Two ships meet in the vast, empty abyss between stars. One is huge, if not massive. It is a "Millenial Ship," a massive colony ship travelling from Earth to a … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2014 – And so it begins…
I just signed up to do NaNoWriMo again this year! I will have more details of Glorae Anya to come, but thanks to Tony Noland's wonderful blog I found GrammoWriMo and signed up for that too. Basically, everyone is allotted up to 800 words as part of a collaborative novel writing project. They eventually hope … Continue reading NaNoWriMo!
