Two for One: Blog Post and Novel Excerpt

I am very happy to announce that I met my 50,000 word goal in Camp NaNoWriMo!  And how did I meet such a lofty goal, you ask.  Why, by frequently combining blog posts with my novel writing, such as I did here and here. And here I go again!  This post is rather long, but […]

A Different Kind of Book Review: The Night I Walked Off of Boot Hill by Briana Vedsted

I’m currently participating in Camp NaNoWriMo but have been negligent with working on my novel.  I also owe a number of book reviews.  So I thought, why not try to do both?  Work on my novel and a book review at the same time.  Granted, this is not the kind of book review I would […]

July Camp NaNoWriMo

Hello, my fellow bloggers and blogettes! As many of you know, I am again throwing caution to the wind and entering another Camp NaNoWriMo writing challenge! I did one in April and was successful. That is, I reached my goal of 50 thousand words and actually had a beginning, middle, and end to the novel […]

The Great Big Blue

It’s been a week since I submitted my final word count to Camp NaNoWriMo and my brain still feels as empty as this great expanse of sky. I’ve written little since: mostly comments, an attempt at poetry during a downturn in my mood, and the ubiquitous note-keeping I do at my day job. I had […]

Camp Award

Had to wait until the end of my work day, but am so happy to be posting my award!

Hecho … Fini … Gemacht … Finito … Kufanyika … Done!

I am so done with Camp NaNoWriMo!  Roughly 50,349 words completed as of last night 😉  I say roughly because I used the opportunity to finish a previous novel so I had to add those words to the word count for my current novel which means I had to use a calculator because I’m a […]

Over Forty

Yea, I’ve made it past 40 thousand words (41,227, to be exact)! Now I can barely keep my eyes open and my throat is sore from begging my cats to just let me write a little bit more and then I will feed you! OK, maybe I wasn’t begging so much as yelling at them […]

30K+ and still writing

This is my cat Junior. He looks very innocent, doesn’t he? Very sweet, very “who me?” But right now he’s ramping up his piercingly plaintive cry for food (what else) and the other two (Maxine and Luisa) are pacing and chirping (yes, cats can make little noises that sound like chirps) because they also want […]

Twenty Thousand Words and Beyond

I am so happy to say that I’ve written over 20,000 words as of this posting.  I’m still behind, but the goal of making 50,000 by end of this April seems a bit more feasible.  I’m looking forward to returning to writing, that is, really writing, for my blog when Camp is over.  This time […]
