VCON, SIWC and NaNoWriMo

I’ve been a bad blogger. I was reminded this over the weekend at the Surrey International Writers Conference. I attended a lot of the social media sessions because I’ve been out of the ‘what’s happening in Social Media’ loop over this past year.Mysterious Ages, my fellow ML for NaNoWriMo.org and I spoke at the beginning of the month at VCON.

Writing Stuff

NaNoWriMo.org, VCON, SIWC it’s going to be a busy fall.

Mid NaNo Update

It’s half way though NaNoWriMo and I’ve over half way through my novel. I hit 28k last night which is over half way to the goal of 50k but I’m concentrating on actually finishing my story this year.

NaNo is almost here again and I can’t wait. Writing has taken over my entire life lately, so you’d think that adding NaNo would make me groan and say “Oh Gosh no, not more WRITING?!” Instead I’m energized and raring to go.

The Making of Jake – pt 3

It’s been twenty years since I started writing the story about Jake and Kathryn. A lot has changed in my life and life in general.

Christmas at the Nelson’s

There is a special sort of grounding that I feel every time I come home. The power I get from returning to my roots is both humbling and astonishing.

I’ve been writing like a mad woman all week, and editing too, so it’s no wonder my brain has turned to mush.

I just hit 11,000 words.

I have never been so far ahead of a writing goal before in my life. Which is a good thing because tomorrow is going to be almost a complete wash.

I’ve never written anything that could be classified as adventure before. This could get interesting.
