Last Day of Nano!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

And I have….. 72, 000 words! Notes and chapter extracts will continue to go up through out the year – mainly I have enough novel to post like 1000 words a week for the whole year and more anyway! I did really well with my PiBoIdMo stuff too which is good I will be attempting […]

Feeling Duaghnted

Monday, November 29th, 2010

As I was writing yesterday I realised that I really really do feel completely overwhelmed by the Punk Project as a whole – not just the novel. It is huge! It is so huge that it is going to take my lifetime to write and that frankly scares me! Why does it scare me? Well […]

A Dip In Production

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

I know you were probably expecting some chapter 11 today and it is there waiting to go live but I just have more random thoughts and things about this years nano experience. Basically I didn’t really have an issue with reaching the word count but once I was there I found writing motivation hard I’ve […]

An Unexpected Turn of Events

Friday, November 26th, 2010

My husband says he doesn’t believe this really happens, that the characters and story steer […]

NaNo Set Backs

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

50K Been and Gone

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I reached the 50 K mark somewhere whilst the month was in it’s teens :/ And I didn’t notice! I am really hopeful that I will be able to make my own personal word goal and that maybe sometime soon the first Punk novel will actually be finished! Of course the size of the series […]

Chapter Ten End

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

This time he had taken a step forward. The Punk felt herself coiling for a jump, she could escape if the guy tried to catch her for biopsy but could she do it without turning over all the medi-tech around Snake? Her eyes where darting everywhere looking for a way out, ‘I didn’t have a […]

Chapter Ten – but almost there!

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

‘You boyfriend is doing well though, the Corp have a rather high credit rating for him, he will be fine it just might take some time and off course they will own him even more.’ the receptionist said in what was an obviously a “there now it’s not all that bad” voice. The Punk wanted […]

Chapter Ten Continued – Still!

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Back at the Center Rookies glittering eyes took her in, she smiled sweetly, after all what did she care Gazz had explained she would pick up bonuses for the crap and she had to put in the time anyway as a level one or so. As far as she could tell the first three levels […]
