In which the Author proves she's two paving stones short of a barricade

(cross posted to the Livejournal)

That's right, I'm doing another Nano.  There's a couple of them this summer, Camp NaNo. Still 50k words, and twice: June and August.

I'm going to use this time to write the last two PauC books. Which you may or may not remember are titled Inferno and Requiem. (I thought about making it Revelations, but Requiem sounds, well, more final...)

Yeah, let's see how well this works (sarcasm)

Please feel free to send encouraging words. Because if this works, the entire series may be done before the apocalypse.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." --  Goethe

  1. I'm not a writer, but I always greatly admire people who do Nano. I hope that both months go well for you!

    1. thanks! I've done three different books for Nanos past, but I've never attempted two back to back like this, and I've never attempted to do one of the PauC books on it (mostly since they run WAY over the 50,000 word target)

      Needless to say, updates will be made, and even if I don't "win" (whether the definition is finishing the book or making the 50k, YMMV), at least chapters will be written!
