The life aboard a freighter in the Andromeda system was tedious. Given the sensitivity of their cargo, they often had to travel at sublight, moving between moon, asteroid and planet slowly but steadily. For Jamie Kleeman though, this is what made it all worth it to her- the view as they approached Andromeda’s capital…
Last week we returned. Today, we beat up the supervillain that stole our life and impersonated us to our friends, family and arch-foes! (Am I taking the visual metaphor a bit far here? I think not!)
Has it really been two-plus (almost three!!) months since I’ve been able to do one of these? What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, real life. Really real life. I feel like rising from the grave here though!
I’ve got a backlog of sci-fi short stories I want to finish off, so I’ve been researching how to go about publishing them once they’re ready, and thought I’d share some resources!
I’m finishing up my second novel at the moment, and I have a favor to ask everybody.
So, it’s been a few days, hopefully everyone’s had a chance to digest their Christmas goose, and unwrap their presents. We had a fun holiday, lots of family and friends time.
Okay, I’ve drawn names, and the preferences are on the spreadsheet linked below. You’re welcome to reach out to the person you’ve gifting to, in order to find out any special requests and how to get the story to them.
Reading a recent article on Tor.com gave me a great idea for a holiday gift exchange that we can do for each other within Thursday Tales and the Odeck. Yuletide is a holiday fanfic exchange. Those who are interested throw their hat in, the coordinator picks another contributor they’ll exchange with, and everyone will…
So I’m nearly finished with my NaNoWri/NinerWriMo story after 2 years with it. It’s about 51k words so it could be called a book in a traditional sense. However, as it is the first draft of something I threw together in a month, I’m fairly certain that only about 8-13k of those words are actually digestible.
It’s November 30th. Did you do it? No, fuck the numbers, did you write? At the beginning of this
experiment, we talked about writing. There was no commitment per se, at least none to us, maybe to yourself though. Tell us how you did, leave numbers out of it if you want.
I’ve seen this come up a bit so I thought I’d make a post.
So, it’s the twenty-first and we’re three weeks in to November. By now, you’ve had a conversation with yourself, probably many if you’re like me, that involves at least one of these phrases, or something very similar:
Tonight at midnight (the 15th, well technically that is the beginning of the 16th, but I digress) marks the end of the midway point of November, and therefore the halfway point of NaNoWriMo.
I’ve been reading some of the other posts, and something hit me. We all have a story in us just waiting it be unleashed, but the question is, how do you find it?
Sometimes, at a time like NinerWriMo, the pressure is on and you just need a minute to breathe. Let’s take that minute right now and look at cute fuzzy creatures! Let’s see your cute animals! Tell us all about them! Or someone else’s cute animal! Or cute animal gifs! It’s like a little vacation from writing!
Despite my renewed enthusiasm for writing first drafts in fiction, again, I haven’t ever quite stopped writing other kinds of content. Interestingly, when I was at the top of my writing game, I was also writing things regularly. Blog posts, advertising content, funny eBay descriptions, knowledge base articles, and…
That’s my true story! Which is a big deal if you knew me from the days when I could turn out potentially tens of thousands of words a week, and then knew me during the time I have been blocked in the most worstest way. It began practically MOMENTS after being published and didn’t let up until the second day of…
I’ve been working on this for about 20 years now. It currently stands at over 111K words and 500+ pages, but I’m stuck in the middle of the second act trying to move the plot further. Since Myseri has been asking for updates and posts, I thought I would share the opening chapter of my efforts; the…
Well, that wasn’t me today, that was me yesterday.
Week one of NinerWriMo is nearly over! Just wanted to check in and see how’s everyone’s progress is.
