NaNoWriMo 2017 – You’re Kidding, Right?

Chalk this one up as a failed experiment.  Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2017 – You’re Kidding, Right?



I forgot to post this last night, so maybe the title should read “Day 7”, but things are what they are.  In any case, I’m at 7,392 words so far, which means I’m about 2.5 days behind.  I got nothing done last Saturday and Sunday due to some things at home that needed taken care of, but I decided to rework one scene that ended up costing me that half-day.

With any luck, I’ll be able to make it up, although I’m in the middle of a transitional/character building scene, which is something I’m currently weak on.  I thought about jumping ahead to the next “action” scene, but I don’t want to risk continuity errors.

In any case, I’m probably on-track with my personal goal of Christmas, even though I’m behind on the official NaNoWriMo deadline.

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 1

You may be familiar with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but in case that’s a new term for you, it’s an annual Internet tradition where authors attempt to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November.

I’ve considered doing it in the past, but due to a lack of forward planning and the chaotic nature of my job toward the end of the year, I’ve never committed to it.

This year, however, I’m going to try.  At the very least, I want the 50,000 words done by Christmas. Granted, that makes it more of a “NaNoWri2Mo”, but a goal is a goal, and I think I need the kick in the pants to really commit to this writing thing if I want to make a serious goal of it.

New Free Horror Short Story Published

With Halloween literally right around the corner, I got an idea for a nightmare-based short story that I published to  Plights of Fancy.

Honestly, I’m not happy with the title, but nothing else I was coming up with seemed to work either.  In any case, give it a read and (as always) let me know what you think!

First Draft of New Story and Other Updates

Based on some reader requests, I’m venturing into some different territory.  A few people were asking for superheroine tales of a more “adult” nature.  To that end, I created a new heroine and villain (although I’m not happy with their current names and will likely change them in subsequent drafts).  The heroine infiltrates the villain’s lair, but manages to get caught.  Her haughty nature requires some “extreme” coercion methods that I’m hoping readers enjoy.  In a perfect world, I’ll have it on Tied Up Babes in a week or two.

New Superheroine Story Published!

I finished and uploaded my newest story Factory of Doom to my story website.  The story centers around a reporter for a conspiracy site finding more than she bargained for, relying on the costumed vigilante Night Tiger to rescue her.  Things don’t go so well for the heroine, however, and… you’ll have to read it for yourself.
