And by F-word I mean Facebook! I can’t believe your mind even went there. I’m sorry. I just wanted the opportunity to write “F-word” in a post title, because I’m mentally two years old and it makes me giggle. Yeah. Like I said. I’m mentally two years old. Who wants to be the first one… Continue reading Of a Writerly Sort is on the F-Word
I’m slowly recuperating from my bout with the flu/whatever the heck that was. With the whole family being out-of-order with some weird combination of symptoms on and off for the past two/three-ish weeks, I consider myself extremely lucky to have gotten off with just a few days of misery. At the moment, I still wake… Continue reading Snap Decisions Have Been Made
My whole family, minus moi, has been sick for the past week and a half. Many times I considered leaping out the nearest window and taking off running, my precious, fragile good health clutched tightly in my arms. I even considered driving back to school, since I would be germ-free there, and my normal haven… Continue reading Do Writers Get Sick Days?
DISCLAIMER: I’m not proofreading this post. Bad form, I know, but I have to go finish the WIP before midnight. Earlier this week I was thinking to myself, darn, I probably won’t get to write a rousing end of the year post because I’ll be partying like a rock star with my cousins. Then my… Continue reading 2012, You’re All Right
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. In the week-ish since I made the leap of freedom out of classes, I’ve fallen behind on Every. Single. Thing. I missed posting dates for ZAPP. I didn’t email back the two people for Secret Santa. I fell way behind on writing my last project of the year. I haven’t posted. Heck, I’ve… Continue reading I Have Single-Handedly Managed to Do…
I’m pretty sure everybody and her mother knows how I want to be an editor. Something inside me just goes wildly happy when I get to talk about people’s darling manuscripts and help them make them better. I think Microsoft Word’s Track Changes and comment features are one of the coolest things ever invented. I… Continue reading I’m Going to be a Professional Whistler
So, I’ve shared the great news about the Zombie Apocalyptic Pitch Party, and you’ve all seen how we’re dividing up the teams. At the moment, I’m ZAPPTeamFP. Just saying. (WE’RE THE COOL KIDS COUGH COUGH). But I kind of want to be ZAPPTeamConRom. I’m thinking of doing a Shakespeare retelling of The Merchant of Venice… Continue reading More Great News!
Well, NaNo’s in the past. And I won! Yay! The final word count was 75k with some change. My older sister also won; I don’t know if my younger one did. But anywho! It’s a brand new month, I have a book to finish (I’m about two-ish chapters away from finishing Broken Moon; and, side… Continue reading December 1st
But it’s not over yet. Word count: 59,233 Deaths: 11 and a 1/2 (somebody was resuscitated) Broken Moon is nearing the climax, after which will be an abrupt and breathtaking downward spiral towards the apocalypse, which my intrepid protagonists may or may not be able to avert. HOW WAS YOUR THANKSGIVING? I’m more grateful and… Continue reading I Won
I suppose I have a different idea of “failing NaNo” than most people, and mine is that whole days have gone by without me writing a single word. The moment I start to feel down about my story or my ability to finish, I’m failing NaNo. Extreme, yes, but I’m unapologetically a girl of extremes.… Continue reading I’m Sick, Failing NaNo, and Still Generally Optimistic
