Finally, an update

Between Sandy and the post-NaNoWriMo writing let-down (it’s always hard to pick up again after pushing so hard), it’s been a while since my last posting to this blog. Not sure anyone’s even following me anymore.

Be that as it may be, I am writing again. Admittedly, at the moment it’s fanfiction for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m writing. That is the most important thing. And as I work along, ideas for other stories for eventual publication trickle in. Two stories have stalled because the endings want to change on me as I’m writing. Not good if I’m aiming for one and I’m getting the other.

I will continue to post here as I have ideas (assuming that I can manage a good connection – another reason I’ve not been posting is the inability to get to my own websites, what with the server being horribly slow. I’m moving my hosting, so that should change soon.

    Glad to see you’re back at it. I will admit, when I saw a story posted at FFA, I went “YES! He’s writing again!”. Then I read the name and said, “Well, I’m not planning on reading it, but at least he’s writing again.”

    Hope to see you pick up some of your earlier stories that haven’t been finished yet soon. In fact, just finished rereading some earlier works–finished (Family Matters) and unfinished (To Boldly Go); the latter of which I hope to see continued.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. For a few days I was going great guns; started out slow, but then chruend out 10,000 words in 4 days. And then I hit the wall.I don’t know if it’s a mental block or a combination of fatigue and general pressure that did me in. Come to think of it, I’m not sure NaNoWriMo qualifies as true pressure; finish or fail, nothing *really* happens. Unlike the thesis writing Riotimus is doing right now, which holds a master’s degree in the balance (as if he needed reminding); keep plugging away and knock that thing out, dude!Maybe my issue is all of the above. When it comes to writing fantasy, I think I’ve had a decades-long case of writer’s block. :)Rather than bang my head against that confounding epic fantasy, I might go back to the cat story that I NaNo’ed 2 years ago and then left languishing. It was really fun to write, and it still has promise.More than anything, I just want to finish *something* that’s worth letting other people read. (And who knows, if people seem to really like it and I think it’s good enough, I might go the self-publishing route and see if the general public wants to read it, too.)
