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, […]

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 […]

Is Grilling a Mystery to You? Then You Really Need to Read This Thriller

As many of you may know, I enjoy writing fiction. (No, I don’t include the posts hereabouts in that action. Well, mostly I don’t. Okay, okay; OFTEN I don’t. Satisfied?) My personal favorites include science fiction and action-adventure, but a good murder mystery is a joy to read. I don’t think I have the […]

Short Update on NaNoWriMo

It’s way past my bedtime (it’s always past my bedtime, these days), and I’ve written every word I possibly can today. No time left for writing a big post; just a quick NaNoWriMo Scorecard and then off to Nod:

Words Today: 12,010; Total Words, 146,400; Impossopotamus Completion, 88.7%; Please, oh please, tell me it’s all downhill […]
