3621 words in one day!

Take that, word count! Deficit gone, story on track, ready to tackle the mid-season turning point. Oh, yeah, I win. And I am two scenes away from finishing an awesome special episode, Topaz-flavored. Very cool to write, neat little surprises for me, some delicious foreshadowing. Completely worth the part where I spent the day chained to the computer.

In a comment I received, I was directed to New Writing Media, an intriguing site for various new media storytelling ventures, including blog-serialized novels. I’ve signed up (my profile is here), but I’ve only giving it a cursory glance. I like what I see so far, though I am put off by the blogging tools. It’s not that there is anything wrong with the tools; I just feel obligated to use them when they are there. Goodreads has a blog option for authors as well. And the truth is, I am intensely proud of myself for managing to keep one blog going. So my usage of NWM may be limited until I figure out how to get something out of it without making myself crazy.


About Joyce

Joyce Sully lives in Southern California. She graduated from UC Irvine. She likes to knit and cook and play video games. But mostly she writes. Joyce writes short stories and novels, songs and poems, scripts and instructions to feed the cat if she stays out late. She has been spotted as far afield as Seattle, but travel makes her nervous. She believes in magic and dragons and ghosts, but is not convinced her next-door neighbors are real.
