You just finished your 2008 NaNoWriMo Novel!

What are you going to do now?!?


Slaughterhouse Jane is officially first-drafted.

I wrote the whole thing out longhand, with a lowball guesstimate for the words per page. I’m probably waaaay over 50K by now. Next up: typing.

I ordered myself an Acer Aspire One netbook (blue, 8G SSD with Linux, which will be a learning experience). Um, as a victory present? And deductable as a business expense! Now, if I could just remember to save book receipts…

The next goal is finishing Alien Blue and getting it out the door to agents. If you’d be willing to read a copy, let me know. I’m still going to rework the first chapter – I was experimenting and ended up making it worse than what I started with. Some spit and polish, and I think I’m ready to have agents tear it to shreds. Fortunately, I’ve received enough rejection letters that I’m okay with that.

As always, I couldn’t have done it without Lee and Ray’s support. And by “it” I mean, “have enough heart to keep going, in the face of everything.” They make life good.




New first sentence for Alien Blue.

    Good luck on the linux bit, As long as you don’t change stuff, It mostly works all the time.

    And I’d like to read this as well.
