Nano Nano – beeeep

31k words for Nanowrimo.   I’ve hit my stride!  The story has gone backwards more than forwards but its all part of the story,  and I have my backstory scattered throughout almost 40 a4 pages of typing, but it’s being built.  Just I wrote the pieces backwards.  Eg I started writing the middle of the story first. No-one shall not get to read it as it is.  ( unless you’re a literary agent – Kidding..  I would be very embarrassed to have it presented as such.) I might stick up an extract of bits I like that were easy to write because it flowed just to prove it exists!

I have no idea what genre it is anymore.  Probably Speculative fiction ( which is different to Science fiction) hey if I put a werewolf in with my Android.  It could be Urban Fantasy.   I dare you to shape shift while wearing a space suit  ( I don’t have space suits though – and no one knows that Ralph is an android yet.) Pete could be a Werewolf bad boy alpha male that hates androids and Kess the leather wearing tattoo’d sword wielding alpha female. ( I really ❤ Urban Fantasy – so I mock it tounge in cheek) 

When I do look for real feedback – when I think it’s ready.  I think I will need someone close enough to not think I’m a complete twat,  further enough away that if they do tear my heart to pieces with their criticism I can take it on the chin,  honest enough to tell me the truth, and willing to be constructive  eg tell me what I did right, as well as wrong.  ( I think that’s why people pay for manuscript assessment services.)

But this leads me to that I don’t think I have ever asked for feedback on the blog. ( and see how I just made you read drivel to actually get to something interesting)   I’m not asking to be ripped to shreds, ( I do have ego, an Id and a very big superego)  but as I was listening to how boring the chick next to me talking about her lunch was on the train while I was trying to write about  my character finding her way down to the abandoned train station with a candle from the kitchen utility draw.  I could not help but think how boring this poor girls world was if she could talk about her lunch for 1/2 an hour.

So if I get boring let me know eh..

    No, you’re not boring, or we wouldn’t keep coming back for more.
    Your focused stream-of-consciousness approach to blogging is engaging and actually pretty special.

    Writing the middle first is quite common I do believe… or at least that’s what used to always happen to me >.<

    Priests everywhere must know, Silk or Satin?

      what my sheets or the curtains I refered to in my previous post. ( Curtains are synthetic but they are a pretty pattern)

        Haha, for what it’s worth, my sly double entendre also refers to priest set-armor in game. Mooncloth Silk and Mooncloth Satin, I think you need your curtains and bedsheets to match! (And tabards!)

    Maybe the poor girl was a foodie and she had a really gourmet lunch. Or not.

    3 days without crack is 3 days too long! Should at least post snippets of your nano writmo then!
