Nanowrimo 2008

So, for those of you who might be wondering why I’m not writing anything here lately, well… it’s November again! ^_^ Back to Nanowrimo, the crazy challenge that consists of writing 50000 words in one month.

This is my third year, and I’ve won both previous ones, but I never finished the story started in 2006 and continued in 2007. I’m hoping that another 50000 words will, if not complete the story, at least get me so close that I’ll just have to finish it in December.

 Regardless. It means that for November, once again, I’ll be off the communication wagon and trying hard to keep my brain from leaking out of my ears. And as to why I’ve been silent in October, well, it’s because I had a contract for three BDs to translate, and I worked extra hard to finish them before November rolled on.

See you in 4 weeks – I’ve got to go back and try to get my main characters to do what I tell them, for once!

    What a challenge! Bon courage !

    Speaking of courage, your translation of Strange Encounter is excellent. You’ll see a sea of red marks, but please don’t be discouraged–it’s mostly tiny structural changes (commas, word order, etc.). I’m really impressed with your work!

    Well, yeah definitely….it has to be done… and I can see the smoke rising from the keys of your laptop. So good luck and a grossly amount of imagination for your project. Mind you, the result better be good……

    Erica, you can\’t see it of course, but the sea of red has spread to my noggin\’. Oh, the rosy tint of embarassed pride! ^_^ Thank you VERY much, it really is wonderful to hear such things!

    Julia, I\’ve been pretty happy with the previous two years, but so far this year I feel I\’m just writing useless filler, and that annoys me. But hey, gotta keep trying, it\’s only a first draft.

    Rob, shaddup. I know where you sleep – and YOU don\’t have a guard cat!
