So, I’m not going to pretend to know what happened last night. And I’m not going to make some big political statement here. I’m a Democrat, voted for Hillary last night, and am a little shell-shocked right now. I think that’s allowed. That’s not to say I didn’t work today, because I did. I wasn’t… Continue reading NaNoWriMo, Day Nine: Or, Did That Really Just Happen?
It’s Election Day! Did you vote? I hope you voted. When I turned 18, that was my present to myself—registering to vote. I’m a geek. I own it. Anyhoo, I promised to work more last night, but I wanted to finish early tonight so I could sit on my rear end and watch the returns.… Continue reading NaNoWriMo, Day Eight: Or Election Day!
Hey! There’s an election tomorrow guys! VOTE!!! *now on to your regularly scheduled programming* AND… the first week of NaNoWriMo 2016 draws to a close. I did not do more writing last night, so I closed the night with an abysmal 2,040 words. Still better than the NaNo average needed, yes, but far afield of… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day Seven, Or Crap, We’re Already A Week In? When Did That Happen?
So I’ve missed a few days. My apologies, but I’ve been trying really hard to get to that elusive 50k number. I know, I know, that’s the official NaNo number for the entire month, but I’m not normal. We’ve established that, right? So I hustled really hard yesterday, and I’m proud to say I’ve done… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day Six: Or, Oops, I was supposed to do this every day, right? My bad.
So, this is going to be a little bit of a rant. I apologize in advance. As I mentioned earlier, this is only my second year doing NaNoWriMo, and one of the things I was reminded of last year is how human nature works. When everyone is struggling, or only slightly ahead, people are really… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day Three, Or A Rant
Okay, so it’s day two of NaNoWriMo. Today was not a good day for my word count, which I realize has to be taken with several grains of salt. If I were working toward the official NaNo goal of 50k this month, I would be at 3,334 words today. I’m well above that, but I’ve… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day Two, Or Why Do I Do This to Myself??
What, pray tell, is NaNoWriMo? For those not in the know, it’s when authors from around the world gather at their respective homes, couches, coffee shops, or wherever else they may be, and attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days, all in the cozy month of November. Some love it, some hate it, and… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day One, or What Have I Gotten Myself Into?
So, I’m definitely still getting used to the rigors involved in managing two jobs like this. On the one hand, I’m a full-time lawyer with my own practice. On the other, I’m trying to write and build something of a following of people who, I hope, like my stuff. Hard to do that when I… Continue reading An update on life, love, and… whatever
Is totally late, and I owe you all a serious apology for that. Life just… happened, and I had the draft done, but hadn’t had a chance to go over it again. So I’m sorry, I’m going to do my best to make that this won’t happen again. Anyway, these are just my own scenes,… Continue reading Alex’s Law FLASH FICTION FRIDAYS!
Are you guys Alex’s Law’d out? Yes? No? Maybe so? If you are, I get it. No, really I do. I am a new author, I’m not a blogger, I have a full-time job, all that jazz. And I’m still learning how to write. I work really hard at it, but it’s a work in progress.… Continue reading Moving Forward
