NaNo 2010

The countdown to NaNo 2010 has begun, but I’m afraid I’m not going to participate this year.  Already writing a book, and have two others in the revision/revising/querying stage so I have very little mental energy left over for NaNo (which requires a lot of said energy). Are you up for NaNo 2010? ——–

I’m a Hybrid!

I’m a discovery writer. That also does outlines. I thought that doing an outline would kill my inventiveness. That once I wrote it, it was just a matter of filling in the blanks. How wrong I was. I won’t say I will outline every project. So far I haven’t needed to outline my short stories, […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Days 29/30:End of the Line

Sorry for missing yesterday’s deadline. But in a strange way, answering these two questions in the same post brings a bit of symmetry to the end of this meme. So lets get to it, shall we? 29.

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 27:The Clothes Make the Man

Every character in my stories have a concept, which can be narrow down to a single word. This concept could be visual, but not necessaraly […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 26: Draw your own conclusions

26. Let’s talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of him! Those who can’t, don’t bother. I’ve commissioned art for my stories and characters, and I like to think I’m a very visual person, but I’m incapable of drawing anything, at […]

My 30 Days of Writing-Day 25: My Little Buddy

Turning the corner on this here writing question meme: 25. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them. Yes. Oh yes. I like pets. Thus my characters have them. I like to give them a pet, something other than a human being to relate to. I think the most important of them […]
