NaNoWriMo Day 2 – The Tortoise’s Race

November 3, 2010

After a weekend in DC at the Rally to Restore Sanity, I’m trying to have reasonable expectations for this year’s NaNoWriMo. It’s day two, and I’ve written about 1000 words each day – 2129 words in total. It’s a little short of the 1,667 per day to be on target for 50,000, but prolificacy does […]

The Mistake

October 27, 2010

Meta: Day 2 and still having trouble getting over 300 words in about an hour. This time, though, the hour was really 10 minute blocks stolen while cooking dinner. I used my usual uninterrupted writing time to attend a writer’s network meetup, hoping to find some other masochists who are planning to do NaNoWriMo. The […]

Meta: So, day 1 of “practice” was not amazing. It took nearly an hour to write just over 300 words. But it’s all okay. I’m going to hang onto the fantasy that it will be easier when I’m working on a single story rather than a random writing prompt. And hopefully I’ll at least build […]

And Now, A Word From Our Author

In an ideal world, I would like to say that I haven’t blogged in a while because the last thing that got me all riled up – namely, Sarah Palin – withered and died, and buried with her went my inspiration. Sadly, this is not the case. She’s alive and well and apparently spawning. I, […]

WTF – Sarah Palin “Going Rogue”?!?!

October 28, 2008

1

Top aides in the McCain camp expressed frustration at what they perceived to be Sarah Palin “going rogue.” In recent appearances, Palin has been off-message, or freestyling, if you will. So . . . what you’re telling me is that the person you picked for being “maverick-y” has now gone maverick, and you’re mad about […]
