I like "like" too much, so I always end up with similes.

Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

But only by a little. 43,785 - That's how many words I ended up either revising, rewriting, or straight up newly drafted during November. I'm taking the old Vacancy serial and revamping it for a trilogy of novels and thought I'd use NaNo to help track my progress. I didn't take it as seriously as… Continue reading Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

Happy Cyber Monday, Maybe Buy A Book?

From what I understand, book sales traditionally fall into the toilet around the holidays, or at least ebook and self-published book sales do. That makes sense: people are buying things for others, we don't typically give digital gifts, and self-published stuff is usually too genre-heavy and niche to give as a present anyway. None of… Continue reading Happy Cyber Monday, Maybe Buy A Book?

Because I didn't bother to record every day's work (and because I honestly didn't know which day I did what), I just said I wrote 21k words in the span of an hour on the 12th. It's obviously untrue, and… Continue reading NaNo Rebelling

The long and short of that is… Continue reading The Association Is Out In Paperback

Nontraditional NaNo and Me

It's National Novel Writing Month, and this will be the first time in a long time that I won't be participating in a normal way. I'm sort of sad about that, especially since I'm actually in the exact kind of mood that writing a first draft of something requires (the desire to just kinda go… Continue reading Nontraditional NaNo and Me

The Association is Here!

I don't always pat myself on the back, but today, oh today, I am absolutely slapping the shit out of myself because The Association is finally here, it's out, and it's on time! Happy Halloween to me! I didn't think, Dear Reader, that it was going to happen between my mouth nonsense, Bart's vet appointments,… Continue reading The Association is Here!
