More coding

| November 28, 2011

Some more writing done, although Nano looks like it’s turning into a set of linked short stories more than a novel. Trying to code and write at the same time is really cutting into my time.The hatchery now has a manual “remove creatures” option for both magistream and Dragon Cave, and a check for Dragon […]

NaNWriMo 2009 – Winner!

| November 27, 2009

I just thought I might mention that despite a Word crash losing two hours of writing I just hit 50,000 words. And I have just realised I did that in 14 days (must be a faster typist than I thought).My: profileFortunately (or otherwise) the story has not told itself in 50,000 words, so I’d guess […]

What can I say? I just reached 44,000 words and am taking a break. I had another idea, so I wrote it.And I feel like I’ve run a marathon, which is always the problem with extended action sequences. (This might also be the last stages of the cold from the weekend).There are still huge gaps […]

NaNoWriMo by Hope_BreedloveMake a customized t shirt online at zazzle.comI finally got round to typing up parts of my story for NaNoWriMo. It’s not a great one, but then NaNo tends to be about quantity not quality (and if I like the end result I can always edit it afterwards).Unfortunately cat herding has left me […]

Anyone going to be doing NaNoWriMo?I might not this year – three novels so far in 2009, lots of lenses and articles, reviews and more have left me with aching fingers, so I might actually take November off.(Who am I kidding? If I get an idea, I’m in. Tirial’s Profile)
