Thursday Things

1. The lesson of Nanowrimo continues even after the contest is over. Just write the story. I’m working on the shifter and flying by the seat of my pants things aren’t going the way I expected.

But instead of stopping, I’m going to keep moving forward and go back later to add/delete as needed. Because I have no idea where this is really headed and because I’ve got a 25K goal it’s not like I have a huge plot to be able to play with.

If I tell the story as the characters tell it to me we’ll get somewhere eventually. Right? Hopefully!

2. Friends are important. I am soooo glad that I don’t have to write in isolation any more. I -like- being able to send things to friends and get feedback. Even when the feedback is ‘hmmm. I don’t get it.’ I’ve been able to see my writing improve because of what others have mentioned to me and I’m grateful.

But more than the writing, it’s nice to have friends to chat with. Laugh with. Worry with. Cyber or IRL, having them there makes my day far more special.

3. In 2008 I started nine stories. I’ve completed five of them.

Hidden Away 52K
Wolf Signs 28K Sold
The Wind and The Sun 15K
Rocky Mountain Heat 30K Submitted
Wolf in Flight 28K
Future Shock 30K/50K
Fae Visions 21K/30K
Yukon Quest 4K/50K
Tidal Wave 9K/ 25K

Since it’s currently Nov 27, I figure by the end of the year I should be able to complete Tidal Wave and Future Shock as well as adding to Fae Visions weekly. That would put my total at seven stories for the year. Not bad for a first year considering I started writing Hidden Away late March.

The days fly past

I can’t believe it’s Nov 24th already. The year has flown past.

Yesterday I met with some fellow writers who are working on nanowrimo and w enjoyed a little coffee break/writing session. I ended up working on an excel spread sheet to track my current works in progress and what point they’re at.

Yes, that means I was actually procrastinating and not writing!! But I did start work on a shifter story so it wasn’t all lining the ducks up in a row.

I’m debating actually making an outline for this story, just for a change of pace and to see if it works. Kind of the synopsis in progress version. Who knows? Playing with words is too much fun.

Oh, and the story? Tidal Wave. It’s got water shifters.

I Love Your Blog!!

She’s faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a speeding locomotive and is making me learn new things quicker than any newbie should have to. Rhian Cahill , my newest writing buddy has given me the I Love Your Blog award!

Awww, shucks. (Add blushing face here.)

If you go check out her blog you’ll see why she makes me smile. Hey, I’ll take the honourary ‘Aussie’ designation any day. You guys even know how to spell properly down there, like us Canucks. But the sexiest man? We got Brendan Fraser up here but we’re so polite we share.

Rhian is out in Singapore and there is just something so exotic about adding 15 to whatever time it is in B.C., translating to a 24hour clock and hope I’ve done the math properly to be able to chat back and forth as we both edit like mad.

So onto the rules for this award.

After receiving the award, if you’d like to participate, you must:
1) Add the logo of your award to your blog. – check
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you. – check
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs. – ummm, I only have three, but they’re very special to me
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.-tomorrow, yup
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.- ditto

#1. Bonne Friesen.Link

Bonne is one of those special forever kind of friends that fall out of the sky, into your life, and you’re never the same again. She’s a little bit of Sunshine to me and read the first and second things I ever wrote. And trust me, that was being a true friend! She’s pursuing her goal of being published with such style. Love ya!!

#2. Jess DeeLink

I forced myself to email Jess blind to get advice about writing a synopsis and I can’t get enough of her. Jess, your comments and suggestions have made my writing move ahead by leaps and bounds, even if my plot occasionally makes you squirm. Getting an email from you is one of the highlights of my day!

#3. TA Chase

TA is fun to read and great to talk to. He was so willing to answer this newbie’s questions about the silly stuff and I’m so grateful. His habit of writing a weekly blog story inspired me to do the same thing and I’m loving every minute of it. Thanks, TA.

I guess part of the reason I write so fast is that I don’t spend a lot of time surfing, but as I spend more time around the writing community I’m meeting more and more super people who are fast becoming friends.

So I don’t -think- she has a blog but I’m going to give Sandie a special ‘You Rock’ award. Sandie, it’s been so nice getting to know you and your encouragement has meant a lot to me. Really, really, lot. And I promise you get to read everything I write forever and ‘ever!

Thursday Things

Four things today.

1. Hollow pit in the middle of my stomach- I submitted Rocky Mountain Heat yesterday. Thank you everyone who read it and helped me make the story better especially Jess, Rhian and Sandie who sent me copious amounts of notes.

I like notes. :)

Today I’m forcing myself to NOT open the documents and scrutinize them for mistakes. I know the manuscripts won’t be perfect but I’m just hoping there’s no glaring oopsies.

So now I get to hang for 34 more days to hear yeah or nay. I’m so pathetic! Waiting is so tough.

2. I’ve fallen in love with ‘Track Changes’ on Word!

Editing through Wolf in Flight right now and I’m keeping the tracking up for interest sake. Seeing how many little things change on a page as I go through my check list of danger words is very entertaining.

Then I ‘saved’ the project as a new name and accepted the changes to get a clean copy to work over. This round of edits is now flowing so much better but there’s STILL some red on every page.

The story is getting better with tighter writing. I know once it goes out to readers it will be another round of edits and another sea of red, but I’m enjoying the process.

3. Rhian, you and I need to have a serious discussion about how to knock out my Muse. You HAD to remind me about the shifter call for March. You HAD to suggest that we had to start writing soon to make the deadline.

I had already figured I shouldn’t even start a new story when…guess what happened last night? Hero and heroine show up in my head and start explaining the first two scenes to me. (Plus the motivation for them both, just for you, Jess.)

Grrrrr….

4. Side tidbit. I figured out that from start to finish, that is the opening of the first page and beginning to write the first draft to submitting yesterday, Rocky Mountain Heat took 72 days.
