Between me and the Editrix we have discovered that there are enough characters in this novel to write a game of live Clue and now I need to find where you can get an ottoman-sized plush die. (Apparently www.largefuzzydice.com is a thing that exists, so now I just need to do live Clue deleted scene.)
Tonight's trip down self-loathing lane involves Urban Fantasy And Teen/Young Women Witches Are So Overdone And You Missed The Boat Princess And Yours Aren't Anything Special So Go Away.
I have no idea who decided we needed these sets of neural pathways but as soon as I finish my sushi I'm going to burn them out with a very tiny blowtorch and get back to work.
I must have gone through some kind of level up in the Author character class over the last couple years because What The Actual Hell Was I Thinking is the new subtitle of this novel draft. #amwriting
After an incredibly vivid dream last night that was the entirety of a novel in progress played out in my head in movie form starring me, yes, I FINALLY am re-outlining and rewriting Nerd Girls Save The World, THANK YOU SUBCONSCIOUS I GET IT.
The tweetthread starts here, for those of you not following me on the birbsite. (There's a thread only on birbsite because it started off also with a bad joke there.)
The synopsis of this alone is over 5k. In contrast, the story I just took a count on today has a synopsis at 1.6k words and a finished length of 100k words.
This is the synopsis that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.
Seriously, I'm expecting this to be 120k at a minimum at this point. #amwriting
If you liked the old Livejournal concept, but hate what the Russian owners have done with the place, I recommend trying out Dreamwidth.
It's based on a fork of the original LJ code, but continually developed since then for a much better experience. The people who run the place care about community and they're definitely LGBT+ friendly.
I've got my freelance site up and running. Want editing? Cover copy? Ebook or print formatting? I'm your gal. http://www.haggardfeathers.com
I can't even tell you folks how much I'm looking forward to my Camp NaNoWriMo novel this year. I am looking forward to it so much. I love everyone in this book.
Except the villain, who can get locked in a very small box for the rest of ever.
My fae ADA protagonist is going to build a barricade and teach her entire never-been-in-a-21st-century-human-city pack of fae friends the entire lyrics to Do You Hear The People Sing. It's going to be amazing. #amwriting
