Fiction Friday: in which I eat all of my mom’s Nutella

      Comments Off on Fiction Friday: in which I eat all of my mom’s Nutella

What are kids for, right? This week I am not reading any fiction — all my reads are currently a) serious academic tomes or b) books on paganism and witchcraft. Or both. However, I did write a short piece of fiction for Three Word Wednesday, now showing at live in demons and absent angels.  Go read that if you like… Read more »

From my Nanowrimo novel, Dead Transgressions. Adrasteia, the half-Atherian, half-Ixilean hero, is currently visiting Harbourtown with Duke Leandros of Aeril, the brother of the woman she’s sworn to protect from a plot by the Children of IxChel, intent on reclaiming their people’s Jade Star. The Duke has taken Adra on a small tour of the countryside while she recovers from… Read more »

of titles and word counts

It took me a while, but I finally decided on a title for my Nano-novel. Dead Transgressions. Sounds pretty detective-y, right? Anyway. I’m at 30K. My plan is to win Nano by Saturday the 12th. If I still need to finish the book, I’ll keep writing. If not, I’ll let it sit and focus on other things. Probably The Jade… Read more »

Adra got shot and it was totally bad-ass

Well, my main character, Adrasteia deKarme, got shot in the last chapter I wrote. It was in the line of duty, and totally bad-ass. The skin around her shoulder got melted off and then rebuilt from scratch. Thank the Goddesses for very advanced medical technomancy. She was very upset about her jacket being ruined, however. (Don’t worry; fashion technology is… Read more »

SFFSat: Adrasteia practices her bad-ass Detective look.

This is a detective story, but it’s in a fantasy setting. Magic and technology are sort of the same thing in this place. She rummaged around in the top drawer for her gun holster. Something she hadn’t worn for a while now — she couldn’t afford ammo recharges, and she hadn’t been on any jobs that would require it. If… Read more »

OH GODS I’M OUT OF FUDGEEOS

Seriously. This is an emergency of epic proportions. WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT CHOCOLATE? I may have to bake a chocolate cake. But that would take me away from Nano-ing. You see my dilemma. Anyway, said Nano is going really well. I’m almost at 10K words. I plan on having a 10K day today, which would put me over 15K… Read more »

Can’t stop now! This is Nano country!

      3 Comments on Can’t stop now! This is Nano country!

As many of you may know, November is National Novel Writing Month: Thirty Days and Nights of Literary Abandon. Some may say that phrase is quite literal, that we abandon literature. I’m sure there are NaNo novels for which that is true, but is is not true for mine, because I’m a damn good writer. (And a lot of other… Read more »

FudgeeOs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

      Comments Off on FudgeeOs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

At this rate I’ll probably run out. Luckily I have a lot of Pepsi Throwback (which, honestly, who came up with that name? Retro works a lot better and sounds less like a recessive genetic mutation) to last me until next week, at least (3 cases should be enough, right?), when my loan comes in. At which point I pay… Read more »
