NanoJourno Update: Day 6

Stage one of the first project is complete. I’ve now revised every one of the 52 endcaps from 2012. A lot have been massively expanded, some more have had the usual boilerplate of an endcap stripped away so they can stand alone and a few have been completely rebuilt. They’re not done, not yet, there’ll …

NanoJourno Update: Day 5

This one was loaded for bear, Buckaroo. It’s possibly the pace starting to catch up with me but what’s more likely is the emotional content of the endcaps. There are a few of these where I write with my heart on my sleeve and rebuilding one of those today took a good chunk of time. …

NanoJourno Update: Day 4

  Day four is done, which takes me out to the end of August and up towards the end of the year.I’m finding three things about this process which are interesting and mildly terrifying by degrees:   -Some of these outros, on average 2 out of 4, are bulletproof. Anything I add to them is …

NanoJourno Update: Day 2

Another eight endcaps in the bag, in just under half an hour less time than before. This isn’t because I’m getting faster it’s because three of the endcaps in this batch just…work. I could add more to them but all it would be is waffle so, after consulting Marguerite who reminded me that trusting myself …

NanoJourno Update: Day 1

  Day one is done. Day one has also been extremely educational. What I’m doing is stripping the stuff about the stories out of each endcap and rebuilding it. So, if there’s one about maritime horror (It’s me, trust me there’s one about maritime horror.) then the discussion of the story is removed and replaced …

NanoJourno: Day 0

  As of tomorrow, I’m on NanoJourno time. As I talked about earlier in the month, I don’t want to do long form fiction because, for me, fiction is a zero sum game at the moment. So instead, and because much like MC Frontalot I remain bound for the high road even though it looks …
