New Site Up! (Arguably It’s About Food, Someday)

Okay, it’s not anything to do with food, unless I write a mystery that involves cooking. (Now there’s an idea; hmmm…) No, this is the newest, and soon to be the best, boutique site about novel writing on the whole InterTubes: The Accidental Novelist. The plan is for plenty of blog posts, of course. […]

It’s Over, Finally (The Writing, That Is)

Some of you may be wondering, what happened to the Chile Underground, your favorite website.  (This is your favorite site, yes?)  Others may even be worried.  Frantic’s okay too. Just don’t rush over here, looking to save the day. It’s saved, already. Not that I feel any better about it this morning.

Hangover, don’tcha know. […]

Down to the Wire…

Well, we gave it a full-throttle run. Scared them Crabs clean back into the ocean. But no, we didn’t beat them. Closed the gap and gave them fair warning not to mess around with penguins who know how to type one-flippered (since our other one’s busy holding onto our martini glass). Truth is, we […]

Trying to Win One for the Team, at the Last Minute

It’s almost midnight; do you know who your children are? Or where you live? Or what you’ve eaten the last few days? O when you last changed your lucky shirt? If you answer “I don’t know” to these, then you’re fully immersed in the NaNoWriMo Challenge. And making steps. Or in this case, words…

Yes, […]

NaNoWriMo Needs YOU! Well, Really, It Needs Me…

The Crabs are trying to run away with our olive. (It’s a long story, believe me.) We Lushguins can’t let that happen! So a group of us have made a secret pact (unfortunately, in a public chat room) to add to our original writing goals. Since I’m basically done with the 105,000 words, I’m […]

Rocking and Rolling on the Fiction; Posts Will Be Short for a While

The Elves at the Chile Underground hope you’re having an enjoyable Veteran’s Day. It’s an historic one, of course: November 11th, 2011, or 11/11/11. So in an hour or so it’ll be really interesting here: 11/11/11 11:11:11. If you’re into numerology, maybe you should hide under your bet for a bit…

In other news, yes, […]

Recovery’s Under Way, Sorta; Time to Write?

Today’s not too bad. For a Monday. I’m even reading a good book about becoming a master storyteller: The Anatomy of Story by John Truby. Shoot, after the last week (or more), I’m feeling good enough to consider solid foods again. And after due consideration, I’m having steak. That’s solid, yes? Oh, and I […]

NaNoWriMo is Almost Here, and I’m Dying…

The next big novel-writing challenge is set to kick off in less than 36 hours. And they may have to launch without me. I’ve got a head cold, and it’s really putting me down. “Sick as a dog” doesn’t begin to describe it.

How sick am I? Well, I gave several minutes’ serious consideration to […]
