Halfway through NaNoWriMo

avatar

It’s halfway through the month. I never expected to make it this far. Excluding today, I have written 27,304 words thus far. I’m still working on today’s goal. I guess I didn’t mention it but what I do is that I start a fresh Word document every day just to make sure I’m reaching my […]

I hate naming stuff…

avatar

Honestly, I hate naming new characters, new locations, new everything. Any name I finally choose, chances are someone else has created it first, that it’s a surname, that it’s a word in a foreign language, or I make it too complicated that I know people will pronounce it several ways. I think naming locations has […]

Day 7 of NaNoWriMo

avatar

A week of writing results at 12,898 words. I would keep trying for tonight but I have a couple shows coming on pretty soon (Boardwalk Empire & The Walking Dead) as well as two netflix movies to try to watch and get sent out by tomorrow (Prince of Persia & Splice). Right now, I have […]

There are words in your document??

It’s annoying when it approaches 6 or 7 pm and you’re not even close to the 1,667 word limit. *strangles brain* That is all.

Day 4 of NaNoWriMo

avatar

I’ve been looking through the forums of NNWM after I got stumped on how to write telepathy. The idea of using ” ” for telepathy would be a pain in my side because I’d have to keep stating that it’s being done mentally. I can’t stand italics and using italics would be a bit dangerous […]

Day 2 of NaNoWriMo

avatar

I don’t expect to blog every day about NaNoWriMo so… Heh! I knew how the story was going to start so it was easy to get that pounded out yesterday. Today was a different story. I spent hours and hours and hours just trying to… really… get… words out. I kept getting up and going […]

Day 1 of NaNoWriMo

avatar

To make sure you reach 50,000 words, you should write at least 1,667 words a day. I kept fiddling, going outside, walking around, but I finally sat down and over the course of a few hours typed 1,989 words. Woot! Of course, I used Fantasy Gathering as my setting and decided to pursue a story […]

Happy Halloween!

avatar

Happy, Happy Halloween, Halloween, Halloween. Happy, Happy Halloween. Silver Shamrock! I remember the first time seeing this movie back in the 80’s. After Halloween 1 and 2, I was wondering what the point of this movie was since Michael Myers was nowhere to be mentioned. Seeing this movie on tv today, I finally took a […]

Smidgeon’s Birthday

avatar

Several men watched as a single crow circled their ship before landing on a railing. Only one man recognized the visitor. The rest were quite superstitious and already formulating evil possibilities to the arrival of this specific crow. The crow announced its arrival with a few caws. “Corbin.” Captain Bain LeGuile smirked as he crossed […]
