National Novel Writing Month: Progress, Dragon Age Inquisition and Computer Stuff

Hello out there in the real world! I say the real world because mine feels rather not real at the moment. I’m in the midst of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and I have to say, every year I forget how hard it is. 50,000 words, one month, and well, me being me I’m shooting …

National Novel Writing Month – Take 5

  I’ve been so amazingly busy with Get Your ROCS Off, the Queermance Fundraiser, that I’ve managed to nearly forget that it’s the end of October — actually it’s Halloween tomorrow of all things. And November means National Novel Writing Month–my fifth attempt, and hopefully fifth success. For those of you who already know what NaNoWriMo …

NaNoWriMo – Rebel Scorecard 2013

NaNo50K

It’s just about that time of year where we lock Matthew in the basement and make him subsist on a diet of grilled cheese sandwiches and black coffee while churning out 50,000 words (it’s okay, we have paramedics on standby). Although he did announce plans to write interactive fiction, he now looks set to start …

Confessions of a Drunkard: Matthew Lang’s Screen Debut

So it’s the middle of NaNoWriMo, and Matthew has more or less left us to our own devices. We understand he’s passed the half way mark of 25,000 words, and is apparently four or five chapters away from finishing the draft of Prophecy, which will hopefully then make it into print after he finished editing …

National Novel Writing Months Starts Here

National Novel Writing Month sweeps around the globe and starts very close to me here in Australia. In some places, it’s already started, but here, it’s less than 1 hour away, and I’m wondering if I’m going to be staying up for a midnight start. For anyone in the writing community who hasn’t stumbled across …

What? Non-Fiction? Really?

So I’m being a very bad NaNoer. In addition to jumping around to work on other projects (i.e. those with deadlines), I’ve also taken writing time out to organise some blog posts with some fantastic authors with Christmas (or other holiday of your choice) stories being released that would make the ideal Christmas present–along with …

Community Wordage: NaNoChallenge Anyone?

Once again, The Washington Post has published the winning submissions to its yearly neologism contest, in which readers are asked to supply alternative meanings for common words. Given the spirit of November and NaNoWriMo, I heartily recommend inventing your own, or using them in your novel. Let me know if you do! And many thanks …

The Games WriMos Play

I am sore today. Sore as in pysically sore. In specific, my thighs feel like they’ve had more of a workout than they’ve got since…well, since the last Kick Off BBQ actually. One of the reasons I love NaNoWriMo is the writing community it brings together each year, or perhaps the writing community it specifically …
