Friday Tidbits

This Thing Called Focus

When you have deadline . . . write on the deadline, not on your blog!

Sigh.

Sorry about the lack of Tidbits these last few weeks, my dear readers. Finishing up some massive deadlining, but should be back to a more regular schedule soon! In the meanwhile, enjoy the Fan Fiction. And then next week I have author features, one on Tuesday and one on Thursday, for two young historical novelists. I think you'll enjoy learning about them and their work.

Happy writing. Are any of you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

My fourth year in a row. :-)

Awesome! What's your story this year about?

Victoria said...

NaNoWriMo...I just Googled it and found out about it! Rats, November second! Oh well, guess I'll just keep working on my current novel... :( Maybe next year I'll sign up in time.

OOOooooo! I just looked NaNoWriMo up. Maybe I'll do it next year...It sounds like a lot of fun!

Here's my NaNo novel info page:

I think I did a better description there than my brain is letting me do right now. ;-)

I'm also doing Nano. I've signed up for several years, but never got serious about doing it...

Although it's three days in, and I've gotten very little written. For me, it's write to deadline instead of writing on the novel, as I've got numerous freelance projects to complete before next week.

Hopefully I'll get to those 50k words as well, this month.

My WIP is a YA/fantasy/romance sort of piece.

I'm doing the Young Writers Program and it's awesome. My second year. It's so cool that even from my little computer in Australia I can do what so many people around the world only dream of doing. I can write.

I love your blog. I haven't read any of your books yet, but I love reading your Friday tidbits.

Your books look interesting too.

Love, Annie-Jo

This is my fourth year of NaNo, as well and, as always, I'm loving it! :D

My story this year is an experiment in the genre of Steampunk. Here's the logline I wrote for it:

"Lieshellyk City comes undone when a thief girl and the grandson of its founder form both a friendship and an alliance to discover the truth behind the city's construction, and that of the Stormings which keep them bound inside its dark corridors."

Happy writing to everyone!

I am doing the Young Writers Program. Just a fun book about a fourteen year old girl who moves to a tiny town by the sea.

I love your blog, and all your books. I have them all on my kindle. Except for Starflower, which I am desperately holding out for as a "reward" for completing NaNoWriMo.

@Kyra: Welcome to Goldstone Wood! Your story sounds really run. I'm so glad you're enjoying the Tales of Goldstone Wood, and I hope STARFLOWER will prove a worthy reward after such an enormous effort as NaNoWriMo!
