MM – NaNoWriMo Quandary

For the first time since 2010, I have a NaNoWriMo quandary. My original plan was to write something based on the fictional Internet Geek character I created for my old blog. However, I couldn't seem to puzzle out exactly what I wanted from that story line, so here I am - ten days away from... Continue Reading →

MM – A NaNo Excerpt

Now that I can faintly see the NaNo finish line shimmering in the distance, I figured I'd share this short, mostly unedited blurb from the start of "Aground." Context - Maeve and Jack are on vacation, and Maeve has misplaced her amber, ghost repelling necklace. Also, for those of you who were interested in my... Continue Reading →

MM – Novel Halfway point

Last week, I felt like a real writer. This week, even though a kind journalist quoted me in an article about NaNoWriMo, I'm back to feeling like I'm writing nonsense.

I'm blogging consistently, but every single day, I think about Maeve and how I'm letting her down by not giving her a decent storyline.... Continue Reading →

MM – Write-a-Thon oopsie

Oopsie! Yesterday, whilst waiting for the Father's Day bacon to be done bakin' (yes, in the oven, using a roaster pan and parchment paper - OMG, yum!), I checked my email and found one from the Clarion Foundation, which began - "Dear Traci, Today is Week 1, Day 1, of the Sixth Annual Clarion Write-a-Thon."...

MM – Write-a-Thon

Hubby put together a brand new computer for me today (thanks hon!), so while I'm busy getting things situated, I'm doing another #MicroblogMondays style post. Below is my Facebook status update from June 11th - As many of you are aware, I'm a huge NaNoWriMo proponent. If it weren't for the gang at the Office... Continue Reading →
