So, I've got a laptop and a loose framework of plot. It's November, and it's NaNoWriMo time again!

But besides announcing that I am beginning Year 4 of National Novel Writing Month, I also wanted to say that while my posting has been less frequent this year, my writing has not. I'm still committed, and continuing my stories, both those WIPs on my LJ and other projects. I may have just um, neglected the editing portion of the writing, something required before posting. What can I say?

I shall try to be better on that front (once NaNo craziness has died down).

Anyways, to sum it up, see the entry title above! ;-)

In the general interest of helping you keep track of all your projects and sanity I would just like to point out that you have three wips posted, even if one is more (or less, depending on pov) wip than two others :P

Lol. I have no idea which one you could be singling out there! ;-)

And you better get cracking on looking over Scotch for the next update, ahem! :D

Playing innocent can often help you out of tricky situations! Just ask Alex! :P

It would be appreciated! It's not like there isn't an *interesting* part in there...

Me and Matt are not fooled anymore! We know better now!

Damn, there's something interesting there??? I must have missed it :P

I've never understood why authors insist on writing new stories for NaNo. If you have any WIP, why not use November to focus and finish them? I'm sure I'll end up reading whatever you post anyway, but I must admit that I'm more than a bit distressed...

It's not that the thought hasn't occurred to me, to use NaNo to finish a WIP. However, once you experience the crazy pace of NaNo it becomes very clear that if you want your story to have a first draft that is actually *good* and not an incredible amount of work to edit, you best not be writing it during NaNo!

Instead I like to use NaNo for side projects that I don't work on the rest of the year, because I'm too busy writing other things, like my LJ WIPs.

To attempt to write Spliced during NaNo, for example, I would find laughable. I just feel the complexity of it would be too much, and I like to take Spliced at a more sedate pace (what can I say, the boys are argumentative and fickle). There are at least a few chapters on here that I've rewritten a few times before posting. Nano wouldn't allow me to do that.

I hope that explanation sheds some light. I can only speak for myself of course, not other authors.

Lol, yeah, writing, especially Spliced during nano, is laughable, that's exactly what I thought even before I got to the part where you actually wrote it :)That would so not work out. I can already imagine Matt's reaction 'WTF are you doing! I demand proper attention! Those slaves and writers, what is wrong with them today!'

Lol, Matt is always demanding, just like someone else I know!! :P

No idea what you're talking about...

Yay to you being alive and back! :D

You will make me hate the word 'editing'!!! >:P ;) :D A certain WIP is in editing hell since, lets go check, oh yes I had ~forgotten~ its still on chapter 2 POSTED ON APRIL 2009!!! >:D >:D >:D

Yes, I am! Not that I was ever *dead*, exactly...

Lol. What can I say, I love to keep you hanging! :D To be honest, Echoes has been sadly neglected for some months. One of these days, though... at any time suddenly that muse can grab me and I'll write a bunch more.

:D But its a good thing that you are again 'alive' in LJ! ;) Not that I can talk about being MIA for ages also! >:D ;)

I see Echoes will be my senior home reading, thank goodness computers and kindle let you adjust letter size, or if my eyesight is so far gone, have a read-out-loud-feature, which will shock everyone because my hearing will be gone too so I will be putting a SLAVE story on highest volume!!! >:D ;)

So can I at least ask how the ~editing~ on Scotch is coming along??? >:D >:D I want to see Brett jealous because Jenna is going to an important event with another FREE man! >:D I want to see if he can ~rationalize~ that as well as "I kissed a free woman like my life depended on it FOR YOU MISTRESS"!!!! >:D >:D >:D :)

Yes, you were too!

Lol, what a great image. You will shock the staff, I'm sure! As for your fellow elderly... I think they are a dirtier bunch than we suspect! :D

Sure, you can ask whatever you like! I may or may not answer. :D

Lol, I love how you put Brett's rationalization of the kiss. ^_^ But everything he does is for her, didn't you know???

Oh Brett, of course he does not like this latest situation one bit. Big fancy ball, sure to have romantic lighting and decorations... Jenna in a beautiful gown and her companion dressed handsomely as well... dancing, perhaps a string quartet playing... and much wine and champagne flowing...

It's like Brett's worst nightmare! :P

Yes, but finally I decided that all work, without nagging you and Fran on the internet, is no life! ;) :D

Its NOT a great image, its a sad image, I will possibly have an aneurism when the Queen frees Kurth and GIVES HIM A PUPPY!!!! >:P ;) :D

:P :P :P ;)

Its like the worst rationalization, I want to see if he applies the same ~logic~ to Jenna's decision to marry a FREE MAN!!! >: >:D >:D

LOL, you are truly evil, even if you accuse me of only wanting pain and insecurity for Brett you make it hell for him! >:) I like it! :D

And will he behave like a good slave and hope his Mistress keeps him around when she is married to a respectable-parents-approved-FREE-man? >:D >:D >:D ;) :D
