NaNoWriMo 2017: Every Dawn a Miracle

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Uh, yeah, so, nanowrimo was a thing that happened this year. Somewhat unexpectedly, and almost entirely because I am incapable of letting some things go. So that’s where Hocus Pocus came in, and then if you’re going to have one magical animal, you might as well go big or go home, right? So, crossover with […]

nano day 8

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Word count as of 6:30 am: 11,043 Personal goal word count for today: 13,000 Me @ me: Don’t you feel even the tiniest bit bad about stealing a line from one of your own stories to be the title of your nano novel? Also me: Nope.

this is not a drill

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

NaNoWriMo has arrived! My approximate thoughts as I begin: ‘Okay, file is open. I’m going to need a title. Wait, did I already pick a title? I remember creating a new novel on the nano site, probably I titled it, right? I wonder what it was. I hope it was something long. Clearly it wasn’t […]

writing Wednesday

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

Pretty much as soon as I finished nanowrimo last year, I wanted to write the missing scene with the matching t-shirts. So I did. Title: Matching Author: marcicat Fandom: Independence Day, Independence Day Resurgence Rating: G Characters: Jake Morrison, Charlie Miller, Rain Lao, Alicia Cade, Dylan Dubrow-Hiller Wordcount: 1000 Summary: The matching t-shirts missing scene […]

2016 Year in Review: Writing

Monday, December 26th, 2016

An easy one! I only wrote two fics this year: the Star Wars story that wouldn’t end, and my nanowrimo story. 1. This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger, by marcicat Summary: Han shows up as a ghost, and starts to realize he missed a lot more than he thought in those fifteen years he […]

Monday? Fic day!

Monday, July 18th, 2016

At long last, the story I started last December is finished. Once they pass the point of ‘but I could make it better!’ to ‘I never want to see this again,’ I figure that’s a sign. A sign of what, I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, it’s done. Title: This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger […]

classic

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Getting closer now — in a fit of frustration yesterday, I typed out the (un)official end to the fic-that-never-ends: AND THEN THEY ALL HUGGED. LOTS OF HUGGING. LEIA KNEW ALL ALONG. FINN THINKS IT IS ALL JUST SUPER. POE THINKS THESE CRAZY KIDS WILL AT LEAST MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE THE REASONABLE ONE WHEN THEY […]

this is that moment

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

You know when you’ve been working on the same fic for five months, but you haven’t actually done anything that could be called “writing” or “progress” for at least three weeks, and you’re wondering whether you should just chuck the lot of it, except that you feel kind of guilty that you left those characters […]

day of 13s

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

Happy half-marathon day to my sister! Last time *Andrea did a half-marathon, I decided I would do my own “13” goal and stayed awake for 13 hours. This time I thought I should up the challenge a little, and we’ve been talking about writing, and that seemed like a good area to focus on. Except […]

a new record!

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Last night I thought to myself, ‘Huh — I should re-read my nanowrimo novel.’ I didn’t, but the thought occurred to me. And only three months after nano — a new record! Then I thought I might peek at it this morning, but based on past experience, reading my nano novels usually makes me fall […]
