Entering Rough Waters

By Holly Lisle

I had to update WordPress, and the theme I was using was incompatible with the current upgrade. The Gantry structure and various related plugins came to a hideous, screeching halt.

I’m making do for now with the default WordPress theme, which is a whole lot nicer than it used to be.

But things are going to keep changing until I find a more flexible and configurable theme that will work the way I want.

I apologize for the sudden and unanticipated change—having the writing diary DIE in the update due to incompatible plugins and infrastructure was no fun—but at least everything is back to working again.

And, HEY, on the bright side, there’s now a search box that actually lets you search the blog right up at the top of the page. Go figure.

The Ghost Story, WABWM, and TALYSMANA

By Holly Lisle

I finished my ghost story. Title?


The title means a lot.

I got it to Trisha Telep in time, heard back that I’d made the deadline—and we are NOT going to talk about the morning-to-next-morning hours I worked for several days getting that revision done. What was supposed to have been a 6500-word story that might creep up to 7000 words became a 12,000 word PROJECT.

But I love the story. And when The Mammoth Book of Ghost Romance comes out, it’ll be in there.

Meanwhile, with that done, I’m holding firm to my commitment to the Write A Book With Me project.

To that end…

TALYSMANA is live again. I finished chapter 26, posted chapter 26, and am prepped to do 10 minutes or 300 words a day on this from now until I wrap the first draft of the project.

What this means for Write A Book With Me folks is that we’re jumping BACK to the TalysMana blog, because that’s my WABWM project. You’ll note that Write A Book With Me now has its own tab at the top of the weblog, too.

Post your wordcounts and progress to the most recent post tagged Write A Book With Me. I can’t promise to post every day. I’ll do my best.
