Abruptly and for no good reason (well, okay, for a very good reason that I will keep to myself) I am decided to do a round of holiday-themed posts (much in the style of Paul Cornell, actually).
First day is a Request Post! I think most of you know how this works, but in case you're new or you've forgotten:
1. You comment and leave me a prompt. Or two. Or ten.
2. I go through and fill as many as I can.
3. There is no limit on the number of prompts you can leave.
4. There is no guarantee I will fill them. (But I will try!)
5. You don't have to follow the theme.
6. If you feel inclined, you are more than welcome to fill other requests.
7. Everyone wins!
Today's theme is the winter holidays. You define what that means. :)
Just posted to the NaNo filter; if you didn't see it, you're not on the filter. If you'd like to be, let me know and I'll add you. If you'd rather not be on it, let me know and I'll take you off. :)
Will be posting word count updates daily. So: who wants to be on the NaNo filter? If you were on it on LJ last year, you're still on it, no worries. (Unless you'd rather be off! In which case let me know.) I ask because I might be posting excerpts and I don't necessarily want them to be easily accessible to the public. Note that even if you're not on it I will be talking about it all the time anyway (just not the details of my writing, mostly my writing habits) so if you have a huge aversion to anything NaNoWriMo you might want to stop reading my blog for the next month.
Going to a write-in later tonight, which should be fun; hopefully I can get substantially ahead this year and actually finish my novel, not just get to 50,000 words.
The title this year is "Standard Fare" and it's a horror-lite whodunnit. I'm pretty stoked.
