Re: New writer needs help in ballancing life & writing!

I have my moments. Usually, I can feel them coming in a book. It's like the 25ks. I start to feel like I need a break. And so I wither it away and begin not to write so much, and take care of all the things I neglected while I was in OMG WRITER MOAD (intentional misspelling). So I balance by having ...

Is this the same idea as what happens in November? 50K in 30 days? Or is this something totally different?
They are doing it in July and August, yup.

Re: Oh Crap Breast Cancer

Like with anything that comes with /that/ attached to it, it's frightening. You're probably going to go through a lot of thinking. A lot of sitting and staring and wondering about /stuff/ and /things/. You're going to get mad. You're going to act like nothing is wrong for a long time. You're probabl...

Re: Camp NaNoWriMo!

Well, I'm about 7000 into the story and it's not as actiony packed as I'm used to. I mean, it's going as I thought but I'm sorta meh about it. I don't know if I'm bored or if it's my usual NaNo beginners hate. I'm great at planning, coming up with a story, getting all the details, world building, ma...

Re: Who's on Goodreads?

I used to be on there a long time ago when my friends at work were all into the book club thing. But since a lot of my work peeps either quit\fired\disappeared from the group I just haven't been on. That, and once I started working on the book in 2009 I just...didn't have time. XD

Re: Getting back to old projects.

Welcome back! I currently (and at any given time) have more than five (or more) things going in my head. They float around and randomly attack me with ideas. Last night, I wrote a fanfic for a community for a video game that I haven't played in years, and haven't written for in about the same amount...

Re: Our Friend the Ellipsis

I once had a beta who I eventually got onto for disappearing for months at a time without contact who used to yell and fit throw about ellipsis. As such, I learned to stop using them as much as EM dashes and other forms of communication. I was a terrible misuser of this: "Well...when I was small...I...

Really? I haven't had a problem yet. Of course, I have something better.

A LIFE.

Mwahaha!

Actually. I don't. I lied. I tweet a lot, too. :oops:

Re: YA writing: is a lower standard conscionable?

Wow, and the majority of those books, Sommer, I see on /adult/ desks throughout the call center and even today at the apartment complex office... YA books, supposed to be 'lesser' and 'ignorant' being read by adults. Huh. :lol: I read and write YA. I didn't plan on it, because I thought YA was all t...
