A preliminary response to a prompt on Tumblr. You can read it here.
What started as an original super-powered rescue squad is now a Thunderbirds fanfiction including a super-powered rescue squad. I’m not giving the Tracy boys super powers; that’s been done, if not alwasys done well. The squad won’t be all girls as romantic foils to the boys; that’s also been done and not well. This will be a mixed gender squad positioning themselves as a rival to IR–with nefarious purposes lurking in the background. Here’s hoping I can write the whole thing (or nearly so) in 50K!
Started a new chapter in Burning Muses, this time about the muse, Terpsichore. It’s been percolating for a while but tonight I managed to get it together in a file. I’m sitting on it overnight before tweaking it and sending it off for beta.
Maybe this will jump start my writing again. I hope so; it’s been a long, dry patch with no real inspiration.
Just to let you know, this is now a mirror site to some degree. I’m moving my fanfiction and some original stories to a WordPress.org build. My coding, which consisted of tables within tables within tables, isn’t working as well, so I’m replacing it with this. I’ll be doing most of my blogging about writing over there. (Family stuff will move to my family blog on WordPress.com.) It’s my goal to make that my author’s platform. New chapters or stories will be posted there first, even before fanfiction.net or AO3.
Here’s the site: As My Muse Moves. Come check it out!
Yes, it’s that time of year again.
Yes, I am an ML again. My co-ML had surgery just before the month began, so I’m the one juggling a lot of the meat-space stuff. We had a great turn out for our first write-in and hopefully I’ll have notice of the meeting place for our second one as our first choice for weeknights fell through.
I’m working on finishing my novel from the July Camp session. Using Scrivener, too, which is very helpful. I wish, however, it would give me a word count on a highlighted section.
One of the artisans has made me a truly impressive cover, and another is doing right by my female dwarf character in a computer render.
I’m going to try to put up a writing prompt every few days throughout the month in hopes of stimulating my writing. You all can join in if you like. I’ll try to make them as broad as possible for use in many different genres.
Today’s prompt: TEA.
50000 words on the nose!
That is all.
Probably should have posted this yesterday, but … oh well, I’ll edit and put it up today!
