So this is my method crazy:)
I sit down i look at the page and think about who my character is and how she moves about her world, I look at the people in her life and how she relates to them I try to find a quite place without distrations and then i write my charaters talk with out qouts around what they say there are a bigillian mispelled words and there is very little punctation because I write in what is called free flow, I have a rough idea of what i'm doing a vague idea of where the story is going but I like her or i hate her and that works for us, and the guys are both sweet and annoying and she wants to kill them and she's been ending up in situations that i have no idea how or why they happened and small side plots have gotten huge and demand more of my time and the story line then I'd intended and I can type pretty dam fast when i'm in a flow so look at what I've just written to you and you'll be able to have an Idea of what my rough work looks like before it gets it's window dressing and did i add that I've skipped almost all of my discriptions and no body knows what anyone looks like:) and they are living in a cardboard cut out, which is fine because i'm writing the action and dialog and when i go back in and do the layering it will be a thing of beauty and have twice the count then other wise. so there you go I type fast and i dont stop for all the frills and yes sometimes i sneak back in and spell check but that's my choice and as my word count speaks for it's self I think it works for me.
so I started today at 18,242 and I'm now at 20,426 as I head off to the first official writein for our area I am nervious and happy because i get to look at other people as crazy as I am and that's a thing of beauty so to all my fellow nanoers good word counts and nimble fingers

Business Cards In 2007 Office: Additions to site

Ok first off this is really confusing for those of us who are used to the old Word works task launcher, the reason for this is because you expect the templates to just be there and not already filled out with other peoples work.
So, after two days I finally found where they were hiding the little template for doing business cards.
Open a blank Doc. Go into Mailings-Labels- Options-Avery US Letter-8371
I also made a logo as you can see above in the title bar, still working out the bugs please bear with me.
Promoting yourself can be tiring, but satisfying.
I have also posted a list of works in progress on the bar to the right. I am hoping to get small jacket copy written up, so that you will know what they are all about, but probably not until after November because of nano.
I have a few books that I haven’t gotten up there yet, but I will get them up in the near future. I am also planning on posting my work schedule up after November and figuring out what I want to work on after that.
I hope you all are doing well and that your work is flowing
Have a good night and take care

comments on Write or Die, and a nano shout out.

Ok, so this is the coolest thing ever. I went to the site write or die:
Dr.Wicked’s Writing Lab. It is a fun writing aid, to quickly get your word count for the day. I typed in how many words I wanted to write, 1,667. How long I wanted to take, 1 hour 30 minutes. I wanted to test the system and see what it did.
When you finish your word count before your time, you get this cool musical chime. However, you can still write more, if you want to see how much you would have accomplished in the time allotted. Since I chose 1,667 in 1 hour 30 min’s and finished in 30 min’s. I found this cool, because I didn’t know I could write that fast. This is a really good tool for those of us who nano, or at least try to nano.
Which I should remind everyone is coming up lickity split, and we only have a few more weeks until the November craziness is upon us good luck to all you out there in nano land. Anyhow, hope you all have a good day and take care.

I’m an author slow to joining the tech revolution, I think it’s funny really, I grew up in the computer age. Nevertheless, I find myself still leery of blogging, MySpace and the web in general. Not so much because of the countless thousands that may or may not someday stumble onto my Crazy quarter of the universe just that I like being private and I find that the internet In and of itself invades privacy.
I mostly write Urban Fantasy; however, I find myself dabbling now and then in the realms of scifi. Because, come on, who doesn’t like a little scifi? I’m mostly working on editing one of my completely finished novels. I also have a few short stories I am thinking of finding a publisher for. I find the work rewarding when I first get all the words down on paper. However, editing is like pulling your hair out one strand at a time. That is until you print off your finished work and thunk it down on your friends table.
