Works in Progress

I finished catching up with my GMail and my prominent journals, not to mention the moderation of my Yahoo groups. Now, I plan to have a cup of coffee, and then I'll try to do somethin today for my pre-NaNo pre-story (getting me from there to the start of my planned NaNo). Hopefully, I will manage to write more than 6 paragraphs today. I hope I can find some Tylenol TM, too--I've had this headache since yesterday.


What I did wrong last year? I let the plot grow backwards while I was trying to write it forwards, because a few things needed extrapolation for them to make sense. I put that one on the back burner for this year, and I'm going for a story that I already have pretty well plotted out (having had, like, 13 years to think about it, lol: last year's was older, but I hadn't put quite so much into it as I'd had the other, which i gave a break for NaNo '04, where I worked on a story in the same universe as the one I did for last year, and I won NaNo, but still haven't finished the story). At least this year's has finished growing backwards (a prequel is in the plotting stages, but I'm not writing it until this series is finished), I know exactly where the events begin, and I am posting a pre-NaNo pre-story to one of my blogs which will help me get from point a to point b (where the word first comes to where my story actually begins).

Sometimes, though, I wish Blogger had a spell check. *sigh* Since it's refusing my email and I have to post on site (and I noted that one post finally got there, but it's a redundancy *sigh*).
