goals and not meeting them

*sigh* I figured I'd update my word count over on the Dreamwalkers page, just to keep track of how well I'm doing on my resolution of writing 500 words a day.  Unfortunately, this forces me to acknowledge that I've only written 1,679 words this year when I should be up around 6,000.  I managed to … Continue reading goals and not meeting them

catching up

(and also a reminder: my two novels, Bethany Caleb and The Art Kids, are both free on Amazon all weekend!) After the July 4th holiday kicked my ass, word-count-wise, I'm sorta back on track with Camp Nanowrimo.  At least, I wrote almost twice the daily recommended word count on Sunday, and have been able to … Continue reading catching up

freebie weekend, and hello from camp!

My two companions novels, Bethany Caleb and The Art Kids, will both be available for free this weekend, July 13-14!  (Of course, these are both always free for Amazon Prime members).  Also available are the print editions of both books. So the long holiday weekend totally decimated my word count, but I am still writing … Continue reading freebie weekend, and hello from camp!

I win!!

Crossed the finish line last night!  And the story is "complete" - there was no skipping to the end and writing an epilogue.  Well, a lot of the last couple of chapters is telling not showing, but I have high hopes for this one and I'm looking forward to editing.  I even kept writing after … Continue reading I win!!

Nanowrimo Update: Week 2.5

Word Count: Above Par (34,484/33,333) Janina is less than 5,000 words away from finishing.  I am consoling myself with the fact that I am keeping my head above water. I am having a little too much fun with my deadly circus.  Since all the characters are dead, they can die over and over again in … Continue reading Nanowrimo Update: Week 2.5

Nanowrimo 2012: Week 1 Update

Word Count: slightly ahead of target Janina's word count prowess has her in the lead, but we'll see if she has the longevity! I have already hit one point where I wasn't sure where the hell my story was going and even contemplated scrapping what I had so far (roughly 5-8,000 words at that point) … Continue reading Nanowrimo 2012: Week 1 Update

and so it begins…

It's November 2nd, which means Nanowrimo has started again!  Yesterday I managed over 1,900 words and my goal for tonight is to get to 3,500 before American Horror Story comes on. My novel this November is called "Cabin Fever."  Up until about Oct. 25th I had no idea what I was going to write about, so I went over … Continue reading and so it begins…
