I’ve retired the print version of Create A Character Clinic from Lulu, and everyone who purchased a copy should receive a full refund. I cannot get Lulu to use my PDF file, or to upload my Word document. I don’t know what its problem is with Word–it won’t give me an error message, though it… Continue reading Only Bad News on the Print Version of CCC

Trainwrecks & Ghosts
Added the category Trainwrecks & Ghosts under Books. This isn’t a book title. It’s descriptive. Trainwrecks are places where I was running along nicely when my career jumped the rails. These are generally single posts — to get the full story, you need to click on the month in which any trainwreck that interests you… Continue reading Trainwrecks & Ghosts
And Done For the Day
Sitting up isn’t working out too well. I’d better be over this by tomorrow.
Still feel like crap … however, I’m going to go sit in Word Wars at FMWriters.com’s chat and run back-to-back tens and post numbers, and hope that will get me through today.
Got some of the proposal done, but nothing on HAWKSPAR. Going to have to go to bed. Either call this one of my last two re-think days, or see if I can get the 3000 words later.
Happy Chinese New Year
Woke up at 1:45 AM feeling like a cross between the buzzard’s breakfast and a bag of hammered rat turds, but writers on deadline don’t get sick days. Sleep-in-late days, yeah. But you don’t get to go back to bed until the words are done anyway, so the workday is what it is, and looking… Continue reading Happy Chinese New Year
900, and The Wrist Went”Click”
Got a lot done, but I’m also done with typing for the day. My left wrist did something funky, and now it hurts. I’m going to go read a bunch of TALYN proofs, and put my feet up, and at some point take a nap. 4603 total words for the day.
635 Words Into New Proposal
It’s going pretty well, but I’m getting a serious case of brain burn. After a couple more ten-minute runs, I’m going to take a break (kind of) and read TALYN proofs for a while. Have already written 4338 words today, and it’s only 11 AM.
Have the hero, the heroine, the theme, the conflict, and the basic storyline — enough, in fact, to put together a short proposal. Which I’ll do tomorrow. Satisfied with what I accomplished today.
Last Run, and Done
Ended with 96,407 after finishing a sentence I left unfinished in the last ten-minute chat run. 3176 words for the day. To the post office now to mail LGD. Then back to see about adding some to the proposal idea I came up with for Claire. And then some reading on TALYN, which has to… Continue reading Last Run, and Done
