  1. As always, I am totally interested in being a reader for you.

    NaNoWriMo was a failure for me this year, but at the same time, it was not. I didn’t even break 10,000 words this year, though I had intended to do it. Life just was too busy. That being said, I actually managed to flesh out two story ideas I have, and get the ball rolling on both of them. I haven’t written creatively in a long time, so it was a great opportunity to get the flow going.

    As for the charity drive, I’m bummed for you man. I wish I had some big answer, but it seems like giving is down for a lot of great causes. We’ve had the same issues over at Libero–not many people are interested in donating to mental health, but some chick selling homemade perfume raised $5000 in a week. That kinda stuff pisses me off. People only want to invest if they feel they’re getting something out of it, and I think that is trickling into tons of worthy causes. *sigh*

      Wait…someone raised $5,000 in a week for homemade perfume? Did it smell like fresh baked cinnamon rolls? I could totally justify it then. Otherwise…not so much.

      I think I’m going to write up the story in a Google doc for now, but we’ll see how I do it. My computer decided to crash out on me for the fourth time in six months, so I doubt I’ll get much done between now and the end of the year on it.

      Sorry to hear NaNoWriMo didn’t go well for you this year. If I hadn’t been moving in November, I think I would have tried it again this year. I need to do it again. I want to become a three-time winner of it, even though I don’t have a good idea for it.

  2. […] In my last post, I talked about how I might do a writing project wherein I’ll be writing a story over the first part of next year — ideally a chapter a week — then sharing updates with a small group of people to get feedback, make adjustments, and see what people think. I have the story idea framed out and I think I’ll be on track to start this in the new year. That said, if anyone is still interested in reading and providing feedback. I think I have two people willing to do so right now, which means I’d like to have 1-2 more to do so. […]
