@abuonarroti Are you guys going to be at the Magic Chocolate Shop this afternoon? And if so, when?
@lafreya1 Yeah, I feel term “barf” resonates nicely with the process.
@abuonarroti I suppose I could call it the Spew or Upchuck Phase, but I don’t think Regurgitate Phase works (unless you’re plagiarizing).
As of yesterday, I’m almost a thousand words into “A Sword in the Spokes”, so I might finish the barf phase before the end of the month.
Off to the cafe to write some more “A Sword in the Spokes”, the 2nd Pelly & Winters story.
“Lair of the Feathered Termites” polish phase is finished. Beta readers welcome.
@abuonarroti Not today, but I would be interested in such coffee and writing meet-up some other time. What cafe is that?
So, looking back to a 2007 LiveJournal post I find: Continue reading “Which SF Author Are You?”
@abuonarroti I just got my laptop back from Merideth (she was playing Sims 2) and am doing a bit of writing. Oh, and I made chicken cur …
Started the polish pass on “Lair of the Feathered Termites”. Transformation from 3rd to 1st person is fun!
@abuonarroti Oh, all right. But I was going to write something blazingly funny. (For which, you will just have to take my word).
@abuonarroti Nervous I think. It is the revenge of the Chickens (as they are now believed to be distant descendent of T-Rex).
@abuonarroti Poof! You’re breakfast! I’ll be sending the T-Rex’s around to follow up on the transformation…
I’m (finally!) done with the barf phase of “Lair of the Feathered Termites” — now on to the polish phase.
I’m off to Sweetwaters for a triple and finish up the barf phase of “Lair of the Feathered Termites”.
Given last nights ER visit, I’ll be staying home today with sick daughter. After I deliver wife to work, that is.
Starting work after a power outage leaves me no choice but to spend my time writing “Lair of the Feathered Termites.”
@cluefairy I updated the blog post with my favorite post-holocaust novel: The Age of Ruin by John M. Faucette…
Prompted by a post by my friend Jenn on Twitter. Continue reading “In the mood for a little post-holocaust fiction?”
I just replied to an email from a friend who is also a writer, and she was saying that she struggled with writing short stories, or, more accurately, short-short stories. Continue reading “One solution to writing short stories for the natural novelist”
