Novel Writing, Halloween, Prius, NYCC

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

I’ve been a busy Brandice lately, so here on the highlights from recent weeks. – Nanowrimo planning is well under way, and today’s kickoff party in the Canton region (of which, I am the Municipal Liaison for the 8th year in a row) is going to ROCK. I’m really excited about my 9th Nanowrimo, hopefully [...]

NaNoWriMo – Down to the Wire

By in Main, NaNoWriMo

Holy crap on toast, I have never waited this long to let an enormous quantity of words to build up in order for me to complete Nanowrimo. I’m not even sure that last sentence made sense… I have been doing nothing but trying to catch up today. I have a little (very, very little) over [...]

Nanowrimo – Plugging Along

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

Holy smokes, November is always such a rush! Nanowrimo is plugging along with the typical ups and downs that I have every year (writing a bazillion words one day, taking a day and ending up behind again, and then ultimately *hopefully* finishing). The meetups have been a lot of fun, although not nearly as many [...]

Big Grown-Up Step: A House

By in Family, Main

I’m sitting at Starbucks, and I should be writing my Nanowrimo novel, but instead I’ve spent the past hour getting caught up on all of you, your blog posts and Facebook updates and comments you’ve made to me that I haven’t replied to yet. Life is really good right now. Today, Jim and I signed [...]

NaNoWriMo 2009 – Lift Off!

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures, Writing

If you’re going to be one of those people that complains about all the Nanowrimo talk during November… shoo. Go ‘way. Not interested. It’s what I do each year, and it’s AWESOME. For those of you who don’t know, I am the Municipal Liaison for the Canton, Ohio region of National Novel Writing Month, and [...]

Update : Work, Family, House, Life

By in Main

Man oh man, has life been busy. Those of you friended up on the LiveJournal will see that this is the 4th wordy post today. I have two days off mid-week from work, and it feels like I finally have time to sit and enjoy some reading, some writing, and some reflection on the past [...]

I enjoyed the morning commute today

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Videos

Thanks to Laura for the kick ass cd I’m still loving in my car a year later. :) [Although, while I do love the cd, I wish I could play music on my iPhone while also Qik recording... This is a major pet peeve, since I primarily use my iPhone for music in the car.] [...]

NaNoWriMo – First failure in 5 years

By in Main, Writing

And so now, on the last day of NaNoWriMo, it’s time to admit it publicly… I dropped out of Nano. For the first time in five years, I didn’t finish my novel, and while I regret not being a better example for my region (since I’m the Municipal Liaison), I don’t feel guilty for concentrating [...]

Peter Xylim and Jomy passed the doctor on their way around the perimeter area just [...]

NaNoWriMo excerpt from Chapter 8

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Writing

From Chapter 8: The sun had risen already by the time Esther rose the next morning, because solar time generally isn’t decided by when the local sociopath rises from her quilt covered bed to join the rest of the world, so when Esther rose, she peered out her window in the a sunny back yard [...]

First Nano Excerpt – Prologue

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Writing

Because you all asked for it, here is the prologue to my 2008 Nanowrimo novel. I am in no way responsible for what may happen to any of you as a result of reading the beginning of what has become quite a work of utter and complete crap. I’ll try and only share the slightly [...]

Nanowrimo has officially begun!

By in Main, Pictures

Both local Cantowrimo kickoffs were a success! We had twelve people at Denny’s at midnight for the late night extravaganza, and at least seventeen people at the Saturday four-hour kickoff with goody bags and introductions. I had a really great time and between the two kickoffs, I got myself past yesterday’s word count goal. To [...]
