So, as it says, we’re at T -27 hours and counting for NaNoWriMo 2014, here in Newfoundland and parts of Labrador. And the Plot Bunnies are going, “Dragons! Dragons! Dragons! Hip hip hooray!” (Or something to that effect. It’s distracting.) … Continue reading

#NaNoWriMo 2014

So. Once again, November and NaNoWriMo doth approach. I had this all planned back in August. Since the Bunnies were overwhelmed by Sekirei, and I didn’t end up writing even 2K words of Selkie Maiden for Camp NaNoWriMo in July, … Continue reading

Sekirei Fic: A Brother’s Concern

So… this isn’t The Fanfic That Ate My Brain. That’s still a work in progress, and thanks to my new beta reader, what’s already written is also getting a serious overhaul. (Which is good, because it’s making the story better.) … Continue reading

#CampNaNoWriMo July 2014: The Fanfic That Ate My Brain

Well, it’s been a while. Haven’t meant to be absent from this blog for so long (again), but between the heat that has been hitting St. John’s (see all my previous complaints and rants about my allergy to heat) and … Continue reading

Camp NaNoWriMo: April 9th 2014

NaNoWriMo 2013: NaNoWinNer!

I did it! Yes, it’s the last day. (Having been suffering a nasty headache from Sunday night onwards that effectively kept me on bed rest Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday kind of ruined the “finish the 50K by the 25th” plan.) … Continue reading

NaNoWriMo 2013: Halfway Mark

So, we’re at the halfway mark of NaNoWriMo, and I… haven’t been doing as well as I hoped this year. (Still by far better than last year, of course, but not as well as I hoped.) The goal was to … Continue reading

It’s October 31st. Hallowe’en. But more importantly… it’s the day before NaNoWriMo 2013 starts! Yay! I’ve had… not the best luck with NaNoWriMo the past two years; I kept getting sick partway through Week 1, and never caught up afterwards. … Continue reading

Finally finished my (authorized) sequel to Vathara’s Saiyuki story Entanglements. If you haven’t yet read Entanglements, I highly suggest you read it first, because what happens in Entangled: Reload relies heavily on the events of that story. Summary: Sequel to Vathara’s … Continue reading

Fanfiction Cover Images

So, I mentioned in my last post that I’d put my fanfiction stories up on Archive of Our Own. What I didn’t know until after I’d put my fics up there was that AO3 lets you download fics as ebooks … Continue reading

General Update; and AO3

Been a while, huh? Well, couple of things to update. First of all, unfortunately, didn’t complete Camp NNWM in July, either; ended up getting sick (again) and couldn’t focus. The fact that it was hot out (see my rant about … Continue reading

NaNoLandia: Camp NaNoWriMo July ’13 #1

So, July is approaching already. It’s been a long and somewhat stressful month (explaining partly why there’s so few posts in either of my two blogs), and somewhat gloomy part of the time here in St. John’s. But July is … Continue reading
