Why Stop At Winning?

•July 25, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Camp NaNo has been proceeding well and as you might have guessed from the title of this post, I’ve won. Actually, I won¬†back on July 19th, but I hadn’t gotten around to posting about it for a number of reasons.

For one thing, the story isn’t done. I know, really shocking, that at 50k words, I do not have a complete novel or story. ;)

Plantsing: Playing with New Toys

•July 19, 2014 • 3 Comments

You know, I really did think I’d post more often during NaNo than this. Eleven days since my last post? Oops. Really didn’t mean to let that happen, but there’s been a bunch of stuff going on and it hasn’t left me a lot of time or mental energy to blog.

However, I figure I should at least say something about my progress on NaNo and with this story. :)

I’ve known Kai Kiriyama for a while now on Twitter and I’m thrilled to introduce you to both her and the cover of her upcoming novel, Blaze Tuesday and the Case of the Knight Surgeon. She’s a dedicated writer and a fabulous person. I’m constantly amazed at how much she gets done and how well she does it all.

Before I share her cover with you though, a little bit about her novel:


Pushing Through Whatever

•July 3, 2014 • Leave a Comment

No, I’m not planning to post every day of camp, but I had something I wanted to share today.

Yesterday was rough, I won’t lie. The whole day was, not just writing. I think this was largely due to the two hours sleep I managed Tuesday night. Maybe three.

I spent a lot of yesterday in a haze of tired and coffee. I somehow made it through the day job without falling over or screwing anything up (that I know of so far at least). I consider that a minor miracle, given the number of people who commented on my state. Maybe this means I’m good at my job? *shrug*

Was That The Starter’s Pistol?

•July 1, 2014 • 4 Comments

It’s July 1st, which means it’s Canada Day where I am. We’re all celebrating the birth of our country up here. Lots of picnics, cottage visits and such things I’m sure, with fireworks to come this evening. Good times.

How am I celebrating? With words and story, of course. I suspect that there are zero surprised people in the¬†audience on this one. Continue reading ‘Was That The Starter’s Pistol?’

I Have Lost My Mind

•June 27, 2014 • 4 Comments

Funny, you’d think I’d miss my mind more, especially since I don’t think it’s coming back this time.

Oh well. I can write without it, right? #JustSayYes

There’s a reason I say I’ve lost my mind. It’s not just the usual insanity, though I still have plenty of that, despite not having a mind anymore apparently. Continue reading ‘I Have Lost My Mind’

Fun and Getting Ahead Of Myself

•June 20, 2014 • 4 Comments

I’ve spent a lot of the last month or so since my previous post thinking about writing. Yes, I was doing that rather than writing, because I was still struggling. Every time I’ve thought I had this licked, I find out I’m wrong, so wrong, and back at square one.

This has not been fun, as you might imagine.
