Less than five thousand words away from the minimum NaNoWriMo word count, Ask’s story is wrapping up, and it’s starting to look like another is beginning to take form– possibly something for Camp NaNo in either June or August. Read the rest of this entry »
The Sand Flea book is happening, everyone. Ask is currently beyond the scope of the blog posts, and on his way to that lonely cliffside house with his usual crew plus two. Once there, I have plans for his descent into the Giant’s Shield valley, and to an adventure beyond that may change the course of his life even more than previous events already have.
Anyway, now there’s a facebook for updates, as well! Exciting, isn’t it?
I don’t know who it is, but someone (or multiple someones) keep giving me views and getting here by looking up various search terms involving debreasting.
I love you.
Back to the topic of writing, Ask is slowly trekking through the desert in my NaNoWriMo story. He is accompanied by Evoxe, Korenila, and two stable boys, and they have not yet arrived at the plains or the cliffside– they’re derping around in various oases while Ask learns proper horse care.
I’m only 400 words away from the official par of Tuesday– the big 20k mark.
Well, faithful readers (holy crap, you guys are still giving me views), I have an update on the writing front!
I’m not a complete failure at the NaNo! I’m a little bit ahead because I’ve been insisting on doing 900 words extra each day (minimum) for the sake of getting some buffer built up for the holidays. My current count of 14,109 words is entirely thanks to this blog. Without learning how to sit my keester (my spell check has got to be lying to me) down and write, I would not have made it this far. Without The Sand Flea infecting me through this blog, I would have no story.
Without you lovely people who read this thing despite its deadness (you necrophiliacs, you), I wouldn’t feel that extra little push of peer pressure that helps me get things done.
Right now, I’m completely rewriting The Sand Flea. So far, much is similar, and after editing, I’m going to work with my beloved editor and best friend, and work out how to make this novel version suck less. Then, I’m going to hunt down one of my friends that is awesome at murdering stories with editing, let that friend go crazy, and work more from there.
Eventually, I will get this published, and when I do… well, the people who follow this blog will be the first I tell about it (other than the people who overhear my wild squealing over my book coming out in print).
If I can, I’ll try to figure out a discount for people who come to this humble blog, as well!
