What I’m Doing

I took some time off to protect my sanity during NaNoWriMo, for all that it lasted four days. Yeah, I know. I calculate that's an average of 12,500 words per day. I've already set the goal for next year. It's Friday and also the beginning of December and I figured, what better time to resume… Continue reading What I’m Doing


Over Coffee (55)

If we were having coffee it'd be a cyber-meetup. I'm at home, but it's been a bit of a long week. You might remember I said the other day I was doing NaNoWriMo - well, it's Day 4 and I've just crossed my 50,000 word goal. Yes. It took four days. Anyway.

Over Coffee (54)

If we were having coffee, I'd be pondering various things. It's almost November, so I'm in the middle of November prep. I know, it used to be called NaNoPrep, but I've scheduled in a lot of work for the month, so it needed to be reclaimed. Writing work, I mean. So far I've managed to… Continue reading Over Coffee (54)
