Okay, I got started on the new Chapter One for Harper Street, posted the opening graphs in F&F, and am banging way at it. My goal is to finish the first chapter this weekend and get integrated into the existing material, then get it out to those who have been foolish enough to volunteer to read. That would be Satate, IAB, Bored Crow and Reagansgame, I do believe.

What's up with everybody else?

Well...

I didn't get to the outline I wanted to. But I did a lot of thinking about it.

Storm's Fury is up to 76,000 words--and I haven't hread any feedback on the entirety, so I'm hoping it's still interesting at this point. I'm not sure that it doesn't want to be a two-book story, or possibly a trilogy. My intent, however misplaced, was to make it a one-shot deal.

Got two rejects. Four are still out there.

We had a storm Tuesday night, and when I came in Wednesday, I found my work computer fried (containing most of my artwork--including that for FFO--many, many stories, and paperwork and reference materials for the shop). A lot of money down the drain. Fortunately, the stories I have out are on my laptop, too, as well As my updated copy of Storm's Fury. Some of the other stories I was proofing for y'all are gone, though.

That's awful, IB. That was a crazy storm, but I didn't even think to unplug my computer. Isn't there any way to retrieve your artwork and the stories you lost? Thank goodness you had most of it in two places. I would be devestated.

Storm's Fury is next on my reading list, which I'll get to very soon, now that I'm finished with Nanowrimo.

Did you catch that? I'm finished! 50,793 words in just under a month. Whew. (Satate, now that it's over, I can honestly say that it is a lot of fun. It's a crazy, over the top thing to do, but it's SO worth it. Are you in for next year?)

Now I'm moving on to bigger and better things--I just don't know what they are yet. I'll probably just catch up on critiquing for the next couple of weeks, so if anyone wants to send me something, now is the time.

Wow, is it Friday already? I was proud of myself this week. I tried to do 500 words a day and most days I did it. I got my chapter finished and started on the next one.

My next goal is to keep up the 500 words a day goal and finish the next chapter, but with the holidays, who knows what will happen.

Nanowrimo, me? I don't know. Depends how my life is going then. I wouldn't have had enough time this month to do it, my baby keeps me busy, and when she's not then my four year old starts. I would like to do it, maybe next year.

IB, I hope you computer gets better.
Deb, send Harper over when it's done.

Dang, IAB, I'm in mourning on your behalf. Hit a computer doctor. Maybe they can recesitate (?) the hard drive long enough to dump it. Let me know when, and I'll kill the chicken.

Plus, I'll have a new chapter read for you this week.

Yeah, there's one in the family, it's just a matter of time...and convenience--and hoping the motherboard's not cooked.

Okay, new first chapter for Harper Street is done and out. My goal for this week is to re-read and update everything I've got so far, brush in a little more color, and start the next chapter (at the end of the line).

Hi all. Last week I finished my two chapters and caught up on my reading. I've also gotten a reject letter, but eh, that's fine. I have more out.

This week's goal will be three chapters.

I want to do Nano next year. That seems like it would be fun. I like challenges that seem impossible.

It's a measure of how crazy my life has been that I forgot to post here for almost a week.

My goal is to get all my classwork done and survive finals. Any writing is a bonus. I still spend some time messing with my prose, but I'm not expecting anything of myself this week or next.

It's still fun to read about everyone else's progress.
