NaNo’s Over, and Boy Am I Glad

It was fun. It was challenging. It was exhausting. It was almost enough to give one a drinking habit. And it’s finally over…

NaNoWriMo 2012 was a very long, and all to short, event. Somehow, getting 350,000 people around the world to write novels causes time to jerk and run, to pause and twist, in ways […]

Summer Break’s Over, and the Elves are Back…

Good News! The Underground is back to full strength, and will quickly be back to full rate. Summer’s nearly gone, though the heat’s still with us here in central Texas. While the Elves (and even the critters) took a nice break during the peak of the Dog Days, we’re all looking forward to the rest […]

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 […]

One Week to Go; You Ready for the Invasion of the Turkeys?

No, I’m not talking about your in-laws, although you may be spending some time with them soon. (I certainly will. And that’s a Good Thing.) We’re now less than 170 hours until the annual contest to see who can get their tryptophan coma on first. Of course, if excess dressing, gravy, mashed and sweet […]

Starting the Big Week on NaNoWriMo

Ah, better living through chemistry! Whatever is in those new drugs, they work. I feel So Much Better you can’t believe it. (Heck, I can’t believe it.) This will be my chance to break through and see how close to on-target I can get from here. Next week the Holidays will interfere; minor things […]
