F3 Fury of the Storm

     Something about storms always called out to me. The windswept plain stood open, small, insignificant underneath the towering grey clouds that covered the entire sky. Sparse sunlight ricocheted throughout the openings in the clouds, but no hint of open sky revealed itself. At any time those clouds would burst, showering the grasslands.

F3 A Star to Guide by

     "Give me a tall ship, and a star to guide her by". I wanted that for a long time. No one ever talks about just how hard it is to pick a star. When you wake up and the Carrini star field the view outside your window in the morning—relative morning—it's all too tempting to randomly point one out and decide to see what's there.

F3 Foggy City


     There was something about the fog. The way it hid, but still gave off light made for one of those paradoxes, and there's nothing quite like something that just can't be to bring people out. The weird ones, anyway. It was like a full moon in a month with an R in it. They came out and did their thing in the fog when the light of day revealed too much of them, and the night was too scary.

Writer's Log NaNoWriMo.0700

     Well, I've finished the first week of NaNo, and I'm sitting at 20,000 words, which is far far above where I had hoped to be. Checking over my records for last year, I'm about 2,000 ahead of my past self. I'm not entirely sure if I can keep the pace up, but I'm going to give it a shot. Projections have me ending this at just after halfway through the month, but I'll be happy if I'm done before Thanksgiving. If all goes well, I'll be crossing the 25k mark this week, which will be cause for celebration. So, hopefully by Wednesday, I will throw a little party for myself. I'll get a cupcake.
     I hope NaNo is going well for others participating, and remember to keep with it. You'll make it. Just don't think about the editing that needs to be done.

F3 The Feast

     A magnificent thing to behold, that sandwich. So wonderfully constructed, and ready to fulfill the wants of tastebuds. It was a sandwich that caused vegetarians to cringe, and the health-conscious to flee outright.

Writer's Log NaNoWriMo.106

     Writer's log NaNoWriMo.106: Did overnight writing sprint up to 2288. Would have continued, but had to face work in 4 hours. I still have to face work, but have ideas, so I plan to get more writing done. I just checked last year's results for day one, and I was at an impressive 5494. Of course, that was a weekend day, and the sprint lasted until almost 3am. So, for less than 1 1/2 hours of writing, I will take what I got, and be glad for it.
