Early Exit Exiting NaNoWriMo, Entering Editing

Early Exit Exiting NaNoWriMo, Entering Editing

I promised myself that this NaNoWriMo would be like that of years ago — write a novel in a month, take a few days off, and begin revising. I finished the novel. Took a few days off. Then one day grumbled into the next, tiring me, straining the brain. No sign of revising.<br><br>Then the spirit […]

Back in the NaNoWriMo Noveling Saddle

Last night at midnight, I joined my fellow Wrimos in the insane endeavour of starting writing a novel when one should be asleep! It’s been too many years since I was ready to write, excited to write, able to join my fellow Wrimos at midnight on my computer. Since 2013, it’s been an exercise in […]

Concussion Is Brain Injury Crowdfund Over: The Writing Begins

Concussion Is Brain Injury Crowdfund Over: The Writing Begins

Extending my crowdfund campaign seemed like a good idea.

My campaign certainly received more retweets, likes, and shares! People threw their […]

Many indie authors are excited about crowdfunding, but I always was wary. I’ve taken risks with […]

NaNoWriMo 2014: Chapter 2 on Twitter

So far, my Twitter experiment is working out. I write my chapter; go rest, eat, drink; think over whether I should tweet out a few excerpts through my own account; decide yeah, extra work but good for the readers; type out my tweets and my characters tweets into a separate document; think them over: did […]

NaNoWriMo 2014 Begins . . . on Twitter

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to participate in National Novel Writing Month, which I have since 2009, this year. The thought was disturbing. But my muse came to the rescue. It said: locate a novel on Twitter. Make it a mystery. You figure out the rest. Well, I did. And though […]

Voyage

The bald eagles Launch from the bleached Pole trees and Soar up and up over The head of the photographer below. Sixteen in all. Click, click, click She captures them oblivious And smiles to see them free and together Before turning away for the long trek home oblivious To their sharp eyes on her watching […]
