I’m sitting here at the computer trying to figure out something to tell you all. I figure I ought to post in the middle of the day because it might get more comments, but that’ll be for another time. Tonight, it nears midnight, and I have a deadline. The biggest thing I want to talk about, I’ve promised somebody I… Read more »

Halfway Point

      No Comments on Halfway Point

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

      No Comments on 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 »

An Alexander day

      No Comments on An Alexander day

I swear, Mondays account for 53 and three-quarters percent of all my extensional crises. This was another bad Monday. Anyway, to explain my topic, it comes from the children’s book Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, in which the main character contemplates several times about moving to Australia. I’ve thought about it too, and so really… Read more »

I need to go back and add yesterday’s server-maintenance delayed post, but it will be up. Meanwhile, today, I’m giving you an excerpt from my novel-in-progress. Help me get to the Night of Writing Dangerously! I only need about 16 more people to throw $10 at the pot! Anyway, this is told from the point of view of a reporter… Read more »

Can’t blog today. I has the sad

      No Comments on Can’t blog today. I has the sad

This entry exists merely to meet the letter of the challenge. It probably doesn’t meet the spirit, but since the last three days’ entries have seemed to be on the negative side and nobody wants to read that crap. So, I’m going to spare you all another rendition. It’s November. It’s supposed to be my best month. And it isn’t…. 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 »
