I finished episode one of "Djinn" tonight! I've been really pleased with my progress these days. The words just keep coming and they're pretty good even pre-editing! :D 

Tomorrow, I will be updating on schedule after I make sure there aren't any glaring typos. Then I'll be looking at layouts to see if I can get something a little cleaner and more "author like." No offense to my awesome pink and purple swirl but pink on black wears on the eyes after awhile. And I spend a lot of time staring at computer screens, I know what I'm sayin here.

One of the awesome things about having a day job in addition to writing is the library will send me to places like Book Expo. There were publishers, authors, and exhibitors, oh my! I came back with so much swag, there are bruises from where the bag cut into my shoulder. I'm still going through it all but I have some great information on marketing websites and connecting with other writers who are on the same route I'm taking. I gotta say, the thought of having some other authors here and reading my stuff is kinda awesome. Unless they tell me I suck, then not so much.

Since my representation has told me Dreamhunter will be available to order in the next week or so, I'll be removing the chapters and putting up a preview instead. It's this that's got me wondering about other site layouts, ya dig?

I got a little more work to do before I pack it in for the night (and my hands are starting to get mad at me for the typing) so, off I go. Till tomorrow, kids!

Of course

I forget to update the journal that I updated the website. Good job, Lenni. :p Anyways, "Djinn" has been cleaned up and updated. I am working on that at a pretty good pace, along with my contest entry, and a couple of side projects I'm working on. As you can see, I've changed my avatar to a beautiful portrait that [livejournal.com profile] nocturnian created for me. I look exactly like that... All the time... Honest. ;) You can check out her work here. You won't be sorry.

And back to work for me! I'm already a page into my word goal for the day. ;)

"Julian" aside from being a class assignment, was also an experiment for me in writing a short story with pure dialog. I wrote it circa 2002. It's edited to make it a little cleaner but it's pretty much exactly what I wrote back then. I had fun with it. :) I may write more with Julian since she's very cool and she's my outlet for channeling Motoko from Ghost in the Shell. XD

And "Djinn" will update as it comes. I'm just letting this story flow. I have no plan. You have been warned. XD

Chapter one of "Djinn" is complete. This is literally brand spanking new. I have no concrete plans for this book. It's flowing as it will.

And I added a Shelfari widget to my profile. >D

Status?
