NaNoWriMo 2015


I am taking the plunge. But I will be cheating a bit– I need (let’s say) another 20K words for Blood Rain, and 30K for Downward Dog. So my NaNoWriMo experience won’t be focused on one project. I know it’s against the rule. I don’t care. Do you think I became a writer because I was interested in rules?! (And, yes, the edge of hysteria in the last sentence is part of the NaNoWriMo crazy that hits me every year).

The word count as of this moment (link opens a new tab)


Grateful through gritted teeth

Urk. Currently I am letting the doofus in my critique group have free rent in my head.

Because I am an idiot. *sigh*

What makes matters worse is that despite his shitty attitude and all-purpose swinishness, one of the points he made is worth considering.

So this is me trying to be grateful for his remark that even vampires should take more damage to the face if they are backhanded with a heavily-ringed hand. *face palm* He’s right, I know he’s right. I will even tell him he’s right the next time I see him (despite the fuss I made about in group).

*grumbles to self*

APRIL 15 UPDATE: I ‘fessed up to the doofus. He was surprisingly gracious about it. Nice. 🙂
