These are the last six sentences I wrote during NaNoWriMo. This is a continuation of my 2010 project, still unfinished. I added about 32 000 words to this story (to the 80 000 I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2010 and 5-10K since). It’s still not finished yet… “What were you doing at the mall?” She asked, [...]
As I begin to write this, it’s 23:47 on 30 November. Thirteen minutes left of the annual month of insanity that is NaNoWriMo. Coming at the tail end of a year seemingly devoid of all creativity, I was not looking forward to the challenge this year. I thought and thought and thought about what to write. [...]
Excerpt from “The Mystery”; a NaNoWriMo 2012 project… Doris Willoughway was crazy: certifiably, effing, no one could deny it, crazy. I mean, what else can you think when all she does all day, everyday, is walk up and down the street – and, you gotta realize, it’s a short damn street. Up and down; north [...]

Everyone knows that!” “Yeah, I guess, but isn’t He kind of busy for that?” [...]
Excerpt from “The Cliff”; a NaNoWriMo 2012 project… Turning away from the happy tourists making their way back to the car with the Massachusetts license plates – probably to continue on to the next snapshot, the next Kodak moment – she picked up an apple that sat closest to her. It was definitely not edible [...]
As the post title says… No, I’m not dead (though you probably DID figure that out for yourself, what with the occasional 100 words post). I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what my priorities are, including this blog. I’m still not really sure what the answer is to that. I need to find a [...]
I should be writing my NaNoWriMo story and not working on this blog post. I’ve written exactly 500 words in the last week. That is, until now. I used Velvet’s prompt to get out another 500 words just now… which I’ve of course had to cut to 100 so forgive me if it’s a bit [...]
30 Days World-wide… 2.8 Billion words 37 479 winners Nova Scotia… 558 writers 8.6 Million words me… 80 065 words 20 pens 3 notebooks Win on 14 November. Those are the numbers and stats for NaNoWriMo 2010. In case you don’t know (though, if you’ve been reading my blog, you should!) NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing [...]
I’ve decided that all my 100 word postings to the end of November will be related to my NaNoWriMo project, a vampire story. Each drabble will be a short character sketch focusing on one of my characters. Hopefully the prompts will work! This drabble is the last in the series and is from Ian’s POV, my FMC’s fiance. [...]
