In between being sick and changing diapers I have found myself watching science fiction shows. B5 and Star Trek in particular.

So when I went to take a shower I was pounced on by an old idea. An old idea that wants me to take another shot at it.

It needs to stand in line though. The nano thing needs to get finished first.


But I can world build, right?

:D

NaNo thing.

NaNo was a bust. In some respects. The wordcount floundered at 21k. Not because I lacked ideas, oh no, I know damn well where this story is going. No, real life vs writing kicked my ass.

So, where does that leave me?

Still plugging away. I like this story. I just hope I can do the story justice.

But isn't that what every writer says? :D


Happy writing!!

NaNo

NaNo:

I am behind. Horribly, utterly losing behind. BUT I'm still going, for several reasons.
1) I love this story
2) I am writing daily again. Even if it is only a couple hundred words here and there, I am WRITING.
3) I reallly love this story


It needs a title, badly. NaNothing just doesn't swing it.

But have a snip:


She closed her eyes. It was a dream. Nothing more. Another woosh and something blocked out the sun. She pushed herself up a bit, forcing her eyes open and saw... something coiling through the air, turning around the far side of the temple and out of sight. Xin frowned and scrambled, instinctivly crouching when the thing swept by again and again. The fourth time it passed but turned above her and when she looked up she saw the thick deep green body of the thing coiling around the building at the top. then a huge head peered over the top, its' narrow snout was as long as she was tall and she was certain that its' mouth harbored long teeth. She swallowed and crept closer.

Been a while since I was in here. I apologize for neglecting this place.

Writing is often a grueling journey. It is a hobby that demands you spill your guts out on paper then sift through it and determine what to keep and what to get rid of.

It is not easy. Emotionally or physically. Often the more excited you get about a story, the more life stacks up to block you from getting it onto paper. The journey to share ones story is difficult and often frustrating.

Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed with the amount of sheer work that is necissary that we shut down, put down our pens, store out WIP's and focus completely on real life. Sometimes to be able to move forward in the writing process we must take a step back, regroup, sometimes re-shelve and just be.

That is sorta what happened to me. RL, writing life and my own insecurities. I needed time and space.

I like to think that I got it.

So, my darlings, how the hell are you?


NaNo; yes I am doing NaNo but not the way most people will be doing it. I've started already. I plan on adding 50k in Nov to the MS and hopefully wrap the story up in late Dec.

Nov already???

This year has brought many changes to my life. Good changes, bad changes (there is more of me than I really want there to be if you get my meaning).

More on that later.
