Upcoming Plans~

I have plans for Autumn and Winter!

October: The Squish-Squash Prompt Call!  Check it out and leave a prompt; comment on stories you want to see continued.

October, too: Preptober!  Gonna end up starting a little late – probably tomorrow, maybe as late as the 15th.

November: NaNoWriMo!  I’m going to do a series of completions, and maybe a story for submission.

Compendium of Completion

December:  Map-vent.  A new event I’m making up.  25 days of maps. Or work on maps.  Mapping on Maps.

Late December: Live Writing Day – see this tag – http://www.lynthornealder.com/tag/livewriting-day/ – for past years of livewriting days! I have off:  Friday, December 25-Friday, January 1, 2021.  One of these days (probably Wednesday), I will be doing a full day of writing.

January: Sleep!

Livewriting Tomorrow Tuesday 12/31/2019

 

Google doc here – https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bIpsF6izDk9Pap2St8bOw2wWE5QRHgPGRjo17-Y18Nk/edit?usp=sharing

Twitch channel I’m still figuring out but it’s here – https://www.twitch.tv/lynthornealder

Theme for prompts is

Beginnings and Endings; a way forward and a path back around.

And my goal is 12,000 words.

See you tomorrow!

Live Writing Today!

#Livewriting Day begins now!

docs.google.com/document/d/1ez My #novel-in-progress. Find out why, exactly, Eva’s desk is in fire. (I hope you know, ‘cause I don’t)

Prompt Call! From the call, you can leave me a #prompt on the theme of “what if?” (This is gonna be fun)

I’m aiming for 12 hours of #writing with at least 3 breaks, so I’m going to be at this all day.

The idea in long form:  I will write. That’s pretty much it.  I’m going to write all day, or as long as I can stand, and see if getting feedback as I go is as entertaining as I hope it will be.

Stop in, leave a comment, wave to me, ask me what’s going on, in general, talk to me.  Leave prompts!   I won’t be posting anything to this blog until later, if at all (unless I get a volunteer) so right now engaging directly by looking at the docs is the only way to read what I write today!

Cheers, and I hope this is fun all around.

Weekend Blog with Patreon, Holidays, and more!

A two-day weekend feels rather short after a five-day “weekend”, but, on the other paw, I didn’t have to go anywhere all that far away, we didn’t have any major cooking (Barely any cooking at all!), and it turned out to be quite relaxing.

I got a new wobble stool for Black Friday (among other purchases), so this weekend, I tested it out, and found it fun, if a little surprising for my back and thighs for the first couple hours. Mobile computing! Or, at least, computing and being mobile at the same time! It’s actually a lot of fun.

We saw Fantastic Creatures this weekend, too, and that was fun, too; it’s not the most deep of movies, but it was visually beautiful, fun to watch, and has already got me spawning worlds of fic in my mind. I’ll call that worth the matinee ticket price.

Other than that — I wrote, we picked apples, we cleaned up the house a bit, hauled some firewood, and went out to lunch at our local Italian bar food restaurant (fish fry and enough Stromboli for three meals). We made cookies and the last of the turkey broth and… well, pretty much chilled. It was a peaceful weekend, and I’ll take it.

In other news, my Patreon has reached the $40 milestone again! I’m excited to get Nimbus out of the tree and see what adventures she gets up to next! (what, I’m supposed to know? I barely know how she’s getting out of the tree! <.<)

I’m contemplating doing a live-writing something sometime during my ~week plus~ work holiday at the end of December (a whole week! And then a Monday!) Details to follow, if there’s interest.

And if you haven’t checked out Selena Page yet, both the Hallowe’en and Christmas stories are available on Smashwords for free: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/SelenaPage

Speaking of the holidays, Christmas is coming, I’ve finished my re/watch of the Librarians, and I’ve started watching Elementary, which might prove to be good knitting-tv (I hope so; I have a few projects to knit on relatively short deadlines!)

And Baking! I think I’m going to try making “fancy” cookies for my foodie aunt & uncle who are in ailing health. I can’t give them wine anymore… (not kindly) so cookies it is! Anyone have a favorite “Fancy” cookie recipe, holiday or otherwise?

I hope you, too, had a peaceful weekend, and that the week is fun and productive for you.

Home-Sick Lazy Livewriting

I am in a lazy state of being today and will be working on my projects here – http://titanpad.com/UDUgf9lyVo – in a public titanpad, if you’re curious to watch me write.

I have a list of 10 projects I’m rotating through, and 40 more to fill the gaps if I actually finish one of those.

I’ll be in and out throughout the day, as I try to pick the house up a bit, too.

New Routine, and things

My morning now has a new routine: get up, feed cat wet food, shower, put in contacts, take meds, inject cat with insulin, praise cat and tell him he’s a good boy, get dressed, find car, brush it off, go to work.

My kitty Drake http://twitpic.com/1l2n6u is a good kitty. We’ve had him since he was a kitten, something like 10 or 11 years ago, and I love him dearly. We lost his foster-brother Gatsby http://twitpic.com/ks6hh this summer, so when Drake started getting sick, I sort of flipped out a bit. We caught it early enough that it’s completely treatable, but it’s going to be expensive.

I’m pondering doing a live-write-athon to raise money to cover vet fees, but that’s about all I know so far about that one: something like $5 buys you 500 words on any topic. That’s… 30,000 words, I think, to cover the vet bills & insulin.

I think I need to get my personal author page re-set-up first, though.

Okay, enough blather. The world can normalize for a few days please?
