Month: November 2005

  • And CCC is Rolling

    Did over 2000 words on Create A Character Clinic today. You might have noticed that the WIPbar has moved. I plan to have it available for sale on the site (in e-book form) by January 2nd. Have some cool surprises I’m planning to go along with its debut. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Done.

    Saving, backing up, e-mailing. And then I’m outta here for the day. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • And Thank You

    While I’m thinking about it, I wanted to say thank you. I know that renting myself out on eBay is not the career direction I want to take long-term. But this month it saved us. We would not have made the mortgage or any of the other bills without it. I want to see if…

  • Last Day

    Today the rest of the book gets done, whether it takes four hours or twenty-four. The manuscript has to be in my editor’s mailbox by nine AM tomorrow, no matter. I have less than a hundred pages of type-in left. However, they’re the hundred pages that include the most extensive changes, with three red scenes…

  • Plodding

    Just plodding. Today is going to be a long night — if things don’t break, tomorrow is going to be another one. It’s never, ever, as easy as you think it will be. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Seriously Bleary-Eyed, Done for the Day

    Bit past the halfway point. I’m tired, I’m grumpy. It’s going, but not fast, not easy. I’m way ready for a stretch of days off. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Today, Planning for a Good Run

    Wednesday went terribly. Combination of computer malfunction and head not in the work. In any case, today, I’m starting at 10,353 and seeing how much I can accomplish. No expectations, no mad dashes. I’ll just work steadily and update on the WIPbar, and see what happens. Still have tomorrow and Sunday to finish, if needed.…

  • Happy Thanksgiving!

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday, safe and happy and close to those you love. Ours will be very small this year, but we hold our far-flung family in our hearts. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Finished the Write-In Yesterday

    I finished the I See You write-in yesterday fairly late. Big plan is to finish the type-in today, though that will require more than 6,000 words of additions. Not sure if I can do it, but I’m giving it my best shot. WIP bar has been reset to zero. Will update irregularly. Onward! Download as…

  • 71,854 total

    Have been working all day on ISY, now on 71,854 with all the messed up stuff behind me, and nothing but the screaming finale to do tomorrow. Plus type-in, which will not be bad. This book has required the least editing of anything I’ve done in years. Going to bed now, though. I’m fried. Download…
