Projects I worked on: Non-fiction book: 1806 words Shelved novel: 9210 words Current novel: 11058 words, oh, and another file that’s got another 626 words. For a total this month of 22700 words. Not nano-worthy, but I’m actually pretty proud of it anyway.
Plagued by computer issues yesterday and today. Happily now resolved. Onward!
Wrote 2275 words on the 24th, first time I’ve hit quota in a depressingly long time. TaDa: I’ve been having other stuff escape. It feels like roadblocks are falling off in other aspects of life, and some of them have been pent-up for a long time. Better and worse, ideas are pouring out. Better because […]
I live my writing life as I live my programming life: by the Donald Knuth maxim: “Premature optimization is the root of all evil (or at least most of it) in programming.” Where programming equals writing. I don’t edit at all in the first draft unless I remove a scene or part of one. That […]

Not quite sure how it happened, but I managed to lose 371 words from the total I had on the 13th. I’m tired, I ache all over, and I’m going to bed. 6537 it is. Sigh.
Folding in the towel a bit early because of the sniffles. Off my 2k quota, but who am I kidding? I haven’t made that yet. Special shout-out to Autumn, who’s starting her NaNo project late this year. I know the feeling. Click to show/hide snippet Even in his living room with the fire crackling, she […]
Didn’t write as much as I needed to, but managed to still get a lot more done than earlier in the month. Now at 5398 words. Almost 10% there (as this needs to be 60k, not 50k). Sometimes, when I’m feeling a bit down about my writing, I like to read some of my old […]
The post title is for my friend Autumn, who will laugh. So. A bunch of things happened this weekend. I went to Algonkian’s Write to Market conference. I came home with an unexpected check and two pieces of advice. I blogged about the first. The second was pretty simple: I’d have a better chance of […]
Project 1 Currently at 8945 words. Project 2 Currently at 2648 words. Project 3 Unchanged from October. (I’m re-reading and making notes.) Thought for the day “It’s not lying if you can pull it off.”
