Twice Fortnightly – Catching Up!

Two NaNo weeks down, two and change to go! And it’s finally starting to feel like NaNo to me. As I mentioned last week, I had a really slow start this time. As of this weekend, I feel like I’ve finally gotten into the flow with the story, which is a delightful feeling. I wrote 3.5k yesterday! Not something I expect to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Catching Up!

Twice Fortnightly – A Slow but Steady Start

One week into NaNo, and I am off to a slow but steady start. I am behind, for sure, but I am slowly catching up. Yay for that! I’m really enjoying working on this story, but there’s an edge of nervousness to that enjoyment because I really want it to turn out not just good but, specifically, pretty. Pretty prose is Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Slow but Steady Start

Twice Fortnightly – A Pre-NaNo Triumph!

Tonight I hit a pretty major and exciting milestone. I finished the first draft of the 3rd Orryn Novella! I decided that I wanted to finish it, mess of a draft that it is, before NaNoWriMo so I wrote the last scene or two, about 1.5k words, tonight. The draft is going to need a lot of work on the rewrite. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Pre-NaNo Triumph!

Flash Fiction Friday – How May I Help You?

Yesterday I finally manage to do my writing stream! I think it’s been 2-3 weeks since the last time, but it feels like longer. I have moved my writing stream from Thursday evenings to Thursday mornings because it suits my current schedule better. I did some conlanging, and also wrote the following piece based on a Seventh Sanctum prompt. As I Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – How May I Help You?

Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?

Why are these weeks so weird? I keep realizing it’s Sunday or Monday and I’ve simultaneously done a bunch things but also not all the things I wanted to but also that I have no idea how many hours I have been writing this week. I have NOT been keeping track! I have also not read through my upcoming Patreon Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?

Twice Fortnightly – Bad Planning?

Last week was a weird one, y’all. I thought I’d done good planing for my writing goals, in terms of both hours and tasks. Yet somehow, I managed to do almost all my hours (9½ out of 11, even though I didn’t have my stream for computer reasons) but have several tasks that I didn’t even touch on. Those included, unsurprisingly, making Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bad Planning?

Flash Fiction Friday – Ambitions (NaNoWriMo ’17 Backstory Snippet)

Hi lovelies. I’m too tired to type a proper post tonight since it’s past 1 am, but I wrote a snippet from the backstory of my NaNoWriMo MCs. Yay! Ambitions The sun was beginning to set over the courtyard, but it wasn’t the evening chill that made Verena’s leg bounce up and down where she sat on the bench. She’d Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Ambitions (NaNoWriMo ’17 Backstory Snippet)

Twice Fortnightly – The Author Hath Chosen!

That’s right, lovelies: I have officially picked a NaNoWriMo project. Yay! I will be working on a somewhat dark fantasy, hopefully action-filled romance in a sort of steampunk-ish setting. I have a very firm grasp on the main characters, the superficial structure of the plot and the themes that will generally be dealt with, but also a fair bit left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – The Author Hath Chosen!

Twice Fortnightly – 1hp Beholder

Friday! That means flash fiction! This piece is based on a dream I had last night. Check it out: “Hey… hey, look…” I felt Tam’s hand tapping on my shoulder but didn’t want to turn away from my book. “Mm…” I said. “Hey look!” she said again, louder now, and I sluggishly raised my head. Her eyes were wide as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 1hp Beholder

Tool Tips – The 101 Things in 1001 Days List

Last week, specifically the night between the 28th and the 29th of September, marked an irregular milestone in my life. Exactly 1001 days earlier, on January 1st 2015, I set out to complete a list of 101 goals. I had spent the last few weeks of 2014 composing it on a website called DayZeroProject, which I’d heard about it from Continue reading Tool Tips – The 101 Things in 1001 Days List
