I’ve never really had to schedule time to write. Writing has always been a priority and my schedule has always been enough of a priority that I have almost always been able to find time for it. With all my other commitments this year, I’m finding that if I don’t schedule time to write – […]
My posts are divided up into three categories, posts related to books (usually mine), posts about giveaways, contests, or special offers, and posts about my writing progress and the writing process in general. If you want to check out one topic in particular, you can select one of the "filed under" links or choose a narrower topic from one of the "tagged" links, located beneath each teaser below.
Haiku, Review, and Progress Overdue
How’s that for rhyme-tastic? :P Because I decided to go all-out reference-crazy on this post, here’s a clip from Flight of the Conchords, Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros. Saying “rhyme-tastic” reminded me of those crazy dudes. Enjoy. Poetry: rocking it haiku-style As promised, and since I’m on a book frenzy, here’s a spontaneous poem just for you: […]
Big Plans for 2014: Editing, Nano-ing, and Beyond!
I have a few ideas about what I want to do on the blog here in the coming year, but first, let me get round to what I have been doing lately: Procrastination/fun stuff NaNoWriMo is over, and I did finally finish my story, but I had one last little update to do, and that’s […]
Book Review (The Bourne Identity) and a Quick Update: Just to Mix Things Up
My review of The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum My rating: 3 of 5 stars Where do I begin? I saw the movies, all three of the original ones based on the Ludlum books, and then the fourth one with Jeremy Renner that was an “expansion” of the fallout from Jason Bourne’s actions. I thought […]
Sleep deprivation leads to bad decisions. Case in point.
I know I’m not a book blogger, but I am a reader as well as a writer, so I’m signing up for two reading challenges in 2014. Because I just wrote over 70k words in 30 days and I thought I should attempt something seemingly even more impossible. Seriously, e-slap me. I think I’ve lost […]
It’s December Already!? Post NaNoWriMo Wrap-up
Last month kinda flew by! One minute, I was struggling to hit 30k words, the next I had hit 50k and was marching onward toward 70! That’s right, final word count as of November 30th: 71,207 BUT: the story isn’t done yet! I worked on it a little on Sunday morning and broke 72k, but […]
Oh Yeah, It’s All Coming Together: Post NaNoWriMo Week 3
Week three: done! It’s kind of crazy to think that it’s all gonna be over in a week! I’ve been making some awesome progress this week, especially compared to my previous years of Nano participation. I’m usually right on track, give or take a thousand words throughout the month, and I come in at 50k […]
Post-NaNoWriMo Week 2
Week two is over, and though it felt like I was in the dreaded slump, I racked up some pretty impressive numbers! I’m averaging about 2,200 words a day, and if today goes well, I want to hit 37,000. Total as of late last night: 33,021 words Socializing and Noveling Go Hand in Hand I’ve […]
Post-NaNo Week 1: The Transition from Padawan to Jedi Knight
One week down, and I’m pretty pleased with my progress. I’m trying to stick to my own daily word count goal this year, upping the ante by just about 300 words to shoot for 2,000 a day, and so far, so good. It’d be better if I could do 2,500 a day, but I am […]
NaNoWriMo Day 1: This Is Gonna Be Good :)
Though this is my fifth year doing NaNoWriMo, it’s my first year ever attending any write-ins or events, let alone the midnight write-in for November 1st! There was quite a turn-out for a late-night, midweek midnight write-in, and it was pretty cool, I have to say. Everybody sort of ended up grouped up with whoever […]
