November Update Update

Yes, there are two ‘updates’ up there. This is an update to the November update, if you will.

As mentioned earlier, I’m participating in the National Novel Writing Month challenge from NaNoWriMo.org.

I have decided to allow folks a sneak peek behind the curtain of novel writing in a month by tracking my output here. Each time I update my word count on NaNoWriMo.org, I will also post those words here on the DWE — November page.

Note, however, that this is a novel I intend to publish some day, so it won’t stay  up there forever. In fact, it will only slightly outlast the NaNoWriMo challenge itself.

Yes, on December 1, 2011, that page is coming down. So if you want to see how a novel shapes itself during creation, check back daily and enjoy the adventures of Alice.

 

Thanks, and good writing!

-Mike

September Update

Hello, and welcome to the end of summer.  I hope you all had a great season. For those in school or teachers, I salute you!

General news:

-I finished the first draft of Blood Fury and am looking for people to help me by reading it and critiquing it. If you’re interested, please contact me here, on Facebook or twitter, or via email. Thanks in advance!

-After a brain storming session, Jennifer and I have renamed the IWA. It will now be known as The Writer’s Bloc. Coming soon: it’s own website.

-New ‘Feature’ on the blog, Brunch! For all your SPAM-ilicious needs.

September’s DWE is up, with one entry so far: The New Kid At School.

Sonia’s mom hurt herself last weekend. Go on over there and wish her and her mom well!

 

This month’s TBC Writing Challenge reflects the end of summer with Changes. Write a story, 500 words more-or-less, about some significant Change. This can be a change in a character’s life, a change in the world they live in, or just a very large amount of coins in the pocket.

My own entry will follow.

New “feature”

Daily Writing Excercise

In an attempt to force myself to write every day, and to hopefully get better at it as time goes on, I have started the DWE or Daily Writing Exercise. It can be found under the DWE tab on this site, as opposed to spamming the main page with these things. Mousing over the DWE tab will also bring up each individual month, in case you want to navigate swiftly to a particular month. Right now, obviously, there is only April 2011, but next month just you watch and see if I don’t add another subpage. Boyah.
