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 [...]

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 [...]

Super No-Longer-Secret Project

By in Main, Writing

I’ve been really busy lately with a fun project, one that I’ve been revising and fiddling around with for close to a decade. I’ve been seriously working on it for a few months now, and it is ready to be revealed… I’m publishing a book of poetry. I have a collection of poems that I’ve [...]

Journal Prompt: Before The Web

By in Main

“What did you do before we had the Internet?” Wow. Well, I have mention that prior to the internet, I was young, so the difference between what I did pre-high school and what I do now has a lot to do with my age rather than the internet, I think. The internet has really taken [...]

Plans and Goals for 2009

By in Main

Last year, I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions, or even an end-of-the-year post for 2007. The ending of 2007 wasn’t very monumental for me and I had enough school assignments and wedding to-do’s to last me several months, so putting goals on top of that was somewhat absurd to me. This year will be [...]

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 [...]

Nano Excerpt from Chapter 11

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Writing

Random excerpt of the day: All three of the scientists got down to business, Rigec and Jaco taking the second specimen back to the ship’s lab while Doctor Kimlynk Coh continued to wander the area looking for further plant life. 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 [...]

Entry for Felicitea Contest

By in Main, Writing

My entry for the Felicitea contest. Loosely based on real mornings I’ve had (not necessarily yesterday, though). I’m not entirely enamored with it, but it’s the last day for the contest, so here goes nothin’… ;) _________________________________________ Yesterday morning our bathroom shower broke. Scrambling to make up the lost time, I washed my hair in [...]

Rediscovering a Pen Love Affair

By in Main

Today, I contracted an old itch. I have long had a love affair with quality writing utensils and when I looked over today and saw one of the doctors at internship writing progress notes with a shiny Waterman fountain pen, I felt a pang of chewed-Papermate-ballpoint shame. There is something seriously addictive about the perfect [...]
