FMP Nano update!

nonowrimologoTime to bring everyone up to speed on the first week of FMPNaNoWriMo! It’s been and odd ride so far, so here goes.
The basic upshot was, I planned to write three arcs worth of the Bubblegum Crisis Audio Drama over the month of November. I’d begun outlining, planning. I even had a rough draft, but it frankly sucked so I trashed it and began a new with the planning in early October. I got a lot of work done in the first half of the month, but dark clouds loomed. Unfortunately, the end of October proved to be a really awful time plan for a major writing project.

ggctinyI always knew we were going to lose one weekend near the end of the month to a convention down in Seattle. Geek Girl Con 13 was a lot of fun and extremely interesting. We spent most of Saturday in the lower levels, playing board games and even getting in a really fun Star Wars RPG session with the new game. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately, Sunday… Around 11AM I got a call that my Paternal Grandmother had entered hospice care. She died just as we reached the hospital.
I’m working on a blog post about my Nana, and how important she was to me not just as a grandmother, but as a writer. She was a really special lady and I want to share her with you all, but right now it’s still too close, so that’s for another time.
But it meant I spent the next two weeks arranging to travel to Oregon for her funeral and coming to grips with a huge part of life not being there anymore. Thoughts of writing, or planning, were light years down the list and I got next to nothing done.
So, November began, and I decided to just…wing it. No outline, nothing but vague ideas, and CHARGE!
As of Sunday night, the word count stood at 5,285 of 50,000. Right about on target.

Blades Episode 4, Delayed…

Hey folks.

As you might have guessed, there’s no new episode of BGC this week. Due to reasons beyond my control the server just can’t handle the sheer epicocity that is the concluding episode. HOWEVER, the IT gnomes assure me that the episode will release on MONDAY AUGUST 5.

To help make up for the long, dry, two weeks without a new episode, we’ve got something extra for you. First, the episode is nearly an hour long (yikes!). Second… hang around till after the credits. We’ve got a small surprise in store. ^_^

Till then, PLAY MORE GAMES!
