People I Think Are Quite Keen: Richard and Jennifer Crawford

(What is this? An Introduction) So, it’s Thursday. Who’s going to get the first nod as a person I happen to think is quite keen? Well, it’s actually two, partly to make up for the fact that I’ve just decided to start this, thus I missed last Thursday, and partly, they’re married, so it’s fitting to honor them together. So,… Read more »

A quick bit of math

If I can manage to write 4000 words/day for the next three days, it’s entirely possible I’ll hit the 50k Sunday night. Since nobody’s entered the betting pool, I suppose that will have to do. (Besides, I don’t think I’m going to write 4k a day for the next three days. I have a ton and a half of other… Read more »

I finished my 11k challenge for the weekend, and now have somewhere just north of 35,000 words. I’m shooting to hit 50 next Sunday night, but I’m not entirely sure 15k in 7 days is entirely realistic. So we’ll leave that alone other than to open the betting pool for when I’m going to hit 50,000 words. In the challenge… Read more »

A Retaken Mint Plot

Yeah, that’s *my* mint farm! (Or it might just be an anagram for my first and last names.) Anyway, I need eight more donations of ten dollars each to get to The Night of Writing Dangerously, thanks to a few awesome friends. Can you help by donating? Also, since a picture’s worth a thousand words, here’s my wordcount per day… Read more »

Another post just to have something up. I promise you all that I’ll try to write you a longer one tomorrow — well, after I do some other things I’ve been slacking on. I’m feeling a little better emotionally, but I’ve got a bit of a cold, so my head hasn’t completely been in the game. I still remain two… Read more »

I hate spammers and other flotsam

I deliberately set the blog to email me when new comments are made. There’s three reasons for this madness: That’s the way LJ comments are handled, and I’ve liked being able to see them It allows me a quick response if there’s a comment that needs to be handled in a particular fashion It allows me to see when I’m… Read more »

Sunset

So it’s November. November means it’s NaNoWriMo month, which means that I’m running around like a crazy person. Then I stupidly said, “Ah why not, I’ll update my blog every day this month. It’s not like I don’t have enough to do.” Since I’m sure there’s folks out there that want to keep me honest, guess I’d better get the… Read more »

Back from the Bay Area…

      1 Comment on Back from the Bay Area…
The real horror

At work, trying to get things done. There’s an interesting concept. Anyway, let’s begin with a picture: I am absolutely sure that isn’t what they meant, but I got a pretty good chuckle out of it. So, I went to the Bay Area. Things I did: Went to the Office of Letters and Light (the folks who run NaNoWriMo) to… Read more »

katster’s handy fix-it-down and do-it-to-yourself type tips for winning NaNoWriMo with your sanity (mostly) intact… This is a reprint of an article I put in my LJ last year. The first and most important is that “It’s Nano. Embrace the suck.” (This is actual advice I gave last year to the Sacramento Nanoers. It’s advice I will be giving again… Read more »
