Missed the deadline

This has been a rough year :p  I’m still working on the story, and even though it won’t come out in the contest, I’ll still be posting an Earth Day story in the Magic of the Wood series.

I’ve started and abandoned at least four stories for this year’s entry, so there will be quite a few “cut scenes” added to the website ( as much as 6k words ) in time.

There’s a very good chance of a Nude Day story in the series this year, though.  I only have two characters left in this “generation”, and I’m working to finish that this year so I can write a story I’ve been building up to for a long time.


Down to the wire

Only have a couple of days to finish Blessing.

I’ve tweaked it, and I’m moving forward, but it’s going to be a close thing.  If I finish it in time for the contest, that’s all to the good.  If not, I’ll just post it as a regular story.  I’m aiming for the contest, though.

Really been fighting this one, and writing in general.  Going through one of those lulls, and my work schedule wasn’t helping much.  Now that I’ve been off a couple of days, at least I’m rested up.

We’ll see what happens as the rest of the week rolls on.


Another reboot

I just rebooted Blessing again.  The angle that I thought was working, wasn’t.

This time, rather than changing one or two things, I’m changing almost everything.  New “Green” angle, new character motivations for my protagonist — the works.

The good news is that I’ll have a lot of cut scenes to add to the site from the aborted stories when I’m done :p

Hoping this one will work out as I want it to.  I’m really coming down to the wire here, even with the opportunity of a week’s vacation coming up that covers the final week of the submission period.

Just typed up a quick outline for the opening, and I’m musing my way deeper into the story now, letting the characters talk to me.


Gimme Five!

5K words on Blessing, that is.  After a brief pause to write this update and check my mail, I’m going to get back to it.  I easily have 45 minuts of quiet time tonight, and really more if I want to push it.

Looking more promising that I’ll finish it on time.  I do have a week of vacation that starts over the last few days of submission, so that should help if I need a last minute push.

I’m hoping it doesn’t come to that, but it’s at least a little help waiting if I do need it.


And that’s 4500

Still a struggle to find quiet time, but when I do, Blessing of the Wood is finally moving well.  If this child of mine will chill out, I’m going to try to get a little farther tonight.

Absolutely a weight off my shoulders, which should help me get other stories moving as well.
