Nah, No WriMo

So I had originally planned to participate in National Novel Writing Month this year. Alas, I was overly ambitious on that point. I’ve only just finished a manuscript and released a short story, and every time I complete a major project (or two), I need a few days of down time. But NaNoWriMo doesn’t allow…

IWSG: NaNoWriMo

It’s time again for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Posts go up the first Wednesday of each month. Read more posts and/or join in here. An agent has offered to represent my latest novel, which is a big step in my writing career, but my insecurities are far from over. Now I worry whether any…

The State of Things

There’s a lot going on just now. I had to send my first ever copyright takedown notice when I found PDFs of something I’d written had been uploaded to a Web site by someone I don’t even know. Look, I’m all for people enjoying my work, but don’t take that work and post it somewhere…

More on “St. Peter in Chains” & some K-Pro

Fellow writer Christine Rains will be posting her review of “St. Peter in Chains” on her site on Tuesday. The following Monday, July 9, she’ll publish an interview with yours truly. Thanks, Christine, for the awesome hospitality! Now to focus on The K-Pro. I’ve given myself a deadline of July 31 to finish the draft.…

Camp NaNoWriMo

You may have noticed my Camp NaNoWriMo badge under “Coming Soon” in the sidebar. I got an e-mail about this yesterday, and I’ve decided to participate in August. Camp NaNo is basically the same thing as “regular” NaNo except not in November. And since November is very difficult for me because of holidays and such,…

NaNoWriMo Fail

It appears I’m not actually doing NaNoWriMo this year after all. The month is nearly half over, and though I’ve written one play and started another, I won’t have anything like a novel by the time the clock runs out. I’m fine with this . . . I think. Since I write all the time…

Progress, or: Lack Thereof

I’m supposed to be participating in NaNoWriMo, but as things stand, I haven’t even started. I’m too busy trying to finish a play that I thought was going to be 10 minutes long but . . . Now I’m not sure. I’m on page nine and don’t see it finishing in one more. Fifteen? Twenty?…

NaNoWriMo

For those of you not in the know, that’s short for National Novel Writing Month. Takes place every November. I’ve participated on and off since 2003. Have even “won” three times (meaning I made the 50k word count). Now, I write year round, as much as possible. And a lot of what I write doesn’t…
