Hello everyone! I suddenly remembered that it's Friday. So how are things going? Any NaNoWriMo news to report?

Today's picture is The Illusion of Diversity by Michael Cheval:

I have apparently blown the charger cord for my laptop at some point today and now only have about 50 minutes of batery life left. I'm behind on wordcount.

I've borrowed one from a friend for the time being.

Hmm - why does he need to die? (and why don't you want him to?)

Hmmmm. Compromise and have him be permanently crippled? So it's not erasing the consequences, but isn't, you know, dead.

I am not nanoing this year, as keeping up with actual school stuff is enough to make my head spin. However, last week I finished two of my request fics (it was a weekend for finishing things! as long as they were not homework) and I'm working on the third.

Brain chemistry has started to sort itself out, thank fuck. This has helped.

I never get to NaNo, it always comes at exam time for me! I really want to but I've just never had a chance yet. Oh well, someday. Hope those of you participating are doing okay, and remember - don't panic! Or at least, don't panic until it's over, panicking now is just a waste of time hehe.

One of my irl writer friends and I have agreed to meet up regularly for writing exercises though, so that I can at least sharpen my writing skills every now and then. We practiced writing descriptions last week, this week it's character development. She has problems writing more than one type of character (she sticks to pessimistic, cynical bastards) while I have trouble keeping interest in my characters at all, so we're working on it together.

Oh wow that is an awesome idea! You're going to show us this story afterwards, aren't you? I'd love to see that :D That does sound like a good way of making sure that all your characters remain separate people, I know I sometimes let slip a moment of mischaracterisation in the name of a joke or a one-liner.

I sold my story Habeas Felis to Stupefying Stories this week, and Bruce decided to serialize it at the Showcase in three parts.

This is one I thought I'd never sell because:
1. It's long, at 9000 words.
2. It stars two talking cats
3. It has four POV characters. One of whom is one of the talking cats.

But Bruce really liked it, enough that he published it nearly as soon as he accepted it, which is really unusual for them. (They've had another one of my stories for two years, so... yeah.)

Anyway. I am thrilled to bits, and you can read it here. :)

I ended up not doing WriMo this year. I tried to write when the time came, but I don't think I am currently in the right mindset to accomplish anything. Nothing continues to come out, my mind drawing a blank though inspired with ideas, and what does manage to come through I am frustrated by because it sounds stilted and forced. I may try and write some other time, maybe when I can find some form of motivation again.
