2009 was a fairly productive year, writing-wise. I finished Bellica, started and finished Snowbound, and started The Jade Star of Athering. I also wrote a few poems, published a book of poetry, and reached a total of 156,732 for my yearly word count. I didn’t make my goal of 200,000, but I’m not too concerned about the 43,268 difference. It… Read more »

Words, Words, Words

I’m at 14,306 words in Nano, which is good considering how tired I’ve been this month (seriously — insomnia until 5am and then not being able to wake up till the late afternoon, and tired all the rest of the time but still not able to fall asleep = not. fun. at. all.). My Nano novel is The Jade Star… Read more »

Captain of the Carpet Ship

Drank quite a bit of vodka tonight, but thought I’d just pop in and say that Bellica is up at my writing site, so you should go check out the prologue and the first chapter. I’ve been doing 14 hour days at school since we began. Now things really get crazy. Trying to get back into writing, but this show… Read more »

Writing hiatus

      Comments Off on Writing hiatus

I am taking a break from writing anything new until September 8th because I have to work on editing Snowbound, preparing for Dragon*Con, going to Dragon*Con, getting together a working props list for Dove In Death (a production that goes off the end of September), getting together my production stuff for Just Shoot Me (the show I’m directing in November),… Read more »

Snowbound finished

      Comments Off on Snowbound finished

I have just finished (as in, today) my first short story, Snowbound, though it’s more of a novelette at 15,758 words, and added a really terrible synopsis on the “Finished Works” page. Needs an edit, and then I send it to the Writers of the Future Contest. But not till after DragonCon. No more writing till then; I forbid myself…. Read more »

Poems

In case you go looking for the second poem I mentioned in my last entry, it’s not up. I deleted it because I realized it needed more work and wasn’t ready for public consumption just yet. BSG was fucking phenomenal. That show has changed my life. I never thought I’d say that about a TV show, but there you go…. Read more »

New Poems!

      Comments Off on New Poems!

I wrote two more poems today, bringing me a third of the way to my year’s goal. View can be read here, and my Hierophant meets my High Priestess: all bets called off is scheduled for tomorrow. I think I may put my most recent poems into glasstown as well; I need to add more to it. Make it thicker…. Read more »

Tired

So, screw the term “editing” — I’m doing a whole frakkin’ rewrite. The entire first part of my novel is completely nonviable. It’s boring. The characters are, well, out — of character. So I started a rewrite today (yesterday; it’s four am) and have written over 4600 fresh words so far. Tomorrow I must dedicate to a paper, at least,… Read more »

Monologue

Still haven’t gotten down to editing. After finishing I was up for two days straight, basically. Last night I slept 13+ hours straight, and now I’m up till 4am because I slept too much last night. I swear I’m not on Earth’s schedule. Tomorrow is class and gym and hopefully edit. I do also have to work on my three… Read more »

Wow

At 10:22 pm on Friday, July 10th, I typed the last words to my first novel, Bellica. I’m pretty darn impressed with myself. Let us party. Also, for July I’ve written 55,977 words total. That’s since the 5th, when my monthly word-count starts (because of GYWO’s system on LJ). I’m incredible. *preens* Reading copies published by the 14th of August,… Read more »

Current Work

      Comments Off on Current Work

Been doing a lot of handwriting on Bellica since the 14th. I think I’m about 15? Maybe fewer; not sure. 15 chapters away from the end anyway. Kind of excited and scared about that. In other news I’m working on getting my poetry book glasstown published, so stay tuned for news about that. I’ll post again when I’m breaking out… Read more »
