NaNoWriMo: Day #10

(Whew, I haven't blogged in decades!)

Chapter 3: 3,156

Chapter 4: 2,766

Chapter 5: 2,717

Chapter six has been handwritten, but not typed (2,704 words).

Total words (not including chapter 6): 16,033

I took my books off of Fictionpress, though. Another Wrimo pointed out that posting the stories online constitutes as publication, which can make actually publishing the book a bit hairy. And seeing as I desperately want to see Beatrice (all twelve books of her) published, I took them off. :(

Oh, well.

NaNoWriMo 2009: Wordle

Wordle: Beatrice and the Greenfinch Carnival (chapters 1-4)

This is what I have been up to.

My favorite part is "little hand chicken" on the far right side. And the fact that Chrysanthemum's name doesn't fit anywhere.

It's that time again, folks! National Novel Writing Month! I am SO determined to not only participate, but also complete a book this time. I've tried and tried and never succeeded, but that's all going to change.

I totally forgot about it until October 30...and I was like "aw crap! What am I going to write about?" And then I thought, "Oh, screw it. This is as good a time as any to write the sequel to my first book."

So I pulled out my notes and outlines and got cracking.

Just to explain how I roll, the book is outlined into thirty chapters, plus an epilogue and a prologue. I handwrite everything. Once I've handwritten a chapter, I type it. So yeah.

Stay tuned!
