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.

You’re not slack, RC, no way- I think your list is longer than this one.

Besides, Tidal Wave is all your fault. I wasn’t even going to start another story until you MADE me.

And sandie, you’re a great pal. That’s why I write so much, so I can feed you more material.

Go check your in box!

Not bad for a first year?
I started writing in 2003, and I’ve only completed 6 books. And you say not bad???

BTW, I was kinda teasing the Samhellions with a book of yours at the Cafe. Had to keep quiet tho, and not give away any info…
It was fun!

Well, there’s still the debate on the ‘quality’ of the writing.

Quantity I’ve got.

What you up to, Jess? Glad to be of assistance, even if I have no idea what’s up?
