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!

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?

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

Twice Fortnightly – 1 Month to NaNo!

I cannot believe that it’s only a month until NaNoWriMo. September really flew by. I had hoped that by now I’d be in a position to start working on an outline for my NaNo story… aaaand instead I am looking at a list of 5 story ideas and trying to decide which one to work on. On the bright side, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 1 Month to NaNo!

Twice Fortnightly – Oh Hey Monday!

My goodness, this past week! Lovelies, I have not been managing my time well, especially with regard to my reading for uni. This weekend I was so incredibly swamped with reading and assignments and honestly, none of it was a big deal on its own. The problem was I let it all clump up for me at the end of the week. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh Hey Monday!

Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit

You know, typing this blog post title has made be realize that the word dial is not spelled the way I expected it. The i-a sequence really doesn’t seem to jibe with the pronunciation. Aaaanyway, that is not what I am here to write about today. Not at all! It’s Monday, and on Mondays I sit down to tell you Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit

Twice Fortnightly – Weird Week Was Weird

Last week was weird, guys. It was busy, though I suppose not excessively so, but it just ended up being so different from what I expected that I felt slightly off-kilter for most of the week. I ended up working with my day job on Saturday (lolwut?) which just threw my whole plan for the week off both because Saturday Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Weird Week Was Weird

Twice Fortnightly – Steady Progress

Another week, another Monday! As of today I’ve had the first session with 3 out of the 4 modules I’m taking this term and they’ve all been fantastic. I am quite sure tomorrow’s first Phonology session will be equally great. This is gonna be a fun term! And last night, I finally pledged for some stuff on Patreon which I’ve been meaning Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Steady Progress
