Never Say Never: My First Short

I’ve always said that I “don’t write short fiction” at all.  That I’m too wordy and verbose and that my stories just tend to be long.  Heck, Aisuru is just over 100,000 words, Deviations is currently clocking in at 90,000 or so.  Girl in the Forest may run a little […]

S2, E48: NaNo 2014, Special 4

Next to the last of the NaNo episodes for this year, and I start by yapping about our wacky weather again before getting to the important stuff, like how I kicked butt this week and got caught up on my NaNo novel. Yeah baby! And, because the episode ended up […]


S2, E47: NaNo 2014, Special 3

Week two of NaNo is in the bag! After whining about the cold a bit, I talk about my decision to cancel Aisuru’s crowdfunding campaign, the increase in my website traffic, introduce Aisuru’s new editor, and (of course) give an update on my NaNo progress. Spoiler alert, I’m still behind!
