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 […]

Relaxifying at the Ranch (And No, the Word Processor’s Not Open)

Okay, if I can’t type’em, I’ll join’em. Or however that saying goes…

This weekend is rocking along very low-key, hiding out at the Ranch and not even cooking a meal this time. Just more nachos. With fajita beef, for one thing. And maybe some non-candied jalapeños. (I wonder how many jalapeño peppers it takes to […]

Not Well; Not Well at All…

Okay, it’s time to call in the doctors. Or maybe the coroner. I’ll even entertain a motion to get a shot or two. Man, this illness has really put me down! I hate being miserable. Nothing tastes good. Food doesn’t taste at all, hardly. some of the medicine’s got flavor, if you can call […]

Nachos to the Rescue!

I’ve found the only way to make even a little progress on the NaNoWriMo challenge at this point. Besides lots of meds, some naps, and sitting very still, I mean. The answer is nachos. With them, I’ve made nearly 3,000 words today. Almost goal!

They’re quick, they’re easy, and if I put enough candied jalapeños […]

Not Exactly Sneaking Up On the Dino Today…

I haven’t felt this bad, for this long, in years. Naturally, just as the Novelasaurus hunt begins. I think I’ve gotten less than 3,000 words so far. At least that only leaves 102,000 to go! In 27 days.

I’ll tell you how bad it is: I don’t even feel like cooking. Or eating. Guess I’ll […]

Best Writing Snack? I Think I’ve Found It…

A great writing effort is only sustained by great snacks. I read that somewhere, and it sounded so much like wisdom that I remembered it. (I think it was snacks. Pretty sure.) Fortunately, there are a lot of good ones out there. Elsewise we’d be running short of great fiction any day.

And if the […]

Looking to Bag a Big One This Year

Dinosaurs don’t write. At least not great fiction. Except one, that is. Me.

Well, perhaps I’m fudging a bit on the “great” but not on the dinosaur part. Yes, it’s that time of year again; National Novel Writing Month is off and running! Unfortunately with this head cold, it’s running off without me. The bloody […]
