The Scriptorium Daily


The Scriptorium Daily. Just in case you thought I forgot. This one is chocked full of writerly advise!


Science – Dar49 Daily. So the little robots got a lot of cool stories into this paper, they didn’t quite land under the categories I believe they should have. Oh, well. Enjoy!


What an exciting conclusion to a great trilogy. Read my review here:

My rating: <a href=”http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/605511766″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Wow! What a ride! Look if I’m dingy today, I blame Rachel Fisher. This book started out rolling and didn’t stop. Real life got in my way, or I would’ve finished this in a day or so. Somewhere around 60%, it felt slower but that was the calm before the storm. I figured last night. I’d start reading it midnight and I would fall asleep. The sun was well up in the sky for two hours before I fell asleep. I could not put the book down. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Fi and her friends.<br /><br />I gave this five stars because, as usual, Ms. Fisher told a wonderful tale. But I noticed that somewhere around 60% of the book, there were a few mistakes words left out or tiny misspellings. The other thing that really bothered me and I know this is just me, how did Fi deal with dirty diapers? I’ve had four kids. I could not have fought a war with any one of them hanging from me. I know Fi is a really strong woman. But somehow I have a hard time grasping a woman who just gave birth and running 3 miles with her baby in the backpack. It just seems rather impossible to me. But that doesn’t stop the story. And it is an amazing one. Maybe I missed something in reading it.<br /><br />I love the ending! I will have to reread the trilogy again as I miss this great bunch of characters!

13,061 So Far


Okay, I should be at 17,741 words but considering that I started on day 7 with barely a story in mind I think I will be catching up. I don’t plan to make myself crazy by banging out something useless, though. So If I don’t finish on July 31st I won’t feel badly. I have finished on time many times. I have not finished at all and I have finished late. I know that what I want is to finish something that I have enjoyed writing. Not matter how long it takes.

So far my story has leaped my people back and forth in time. They have met with a ghost and a crazy hypnotherapist who is out to kill the main character. We don’t know why any of this is happening, but the main character is growing through these adventures, as is her best friend.

I love when the book writes itself. The characters feel real to me and their surroundings are quite clear. I hope I am creating the snapshots I see in the writing. I’m having fun. That’s all that matters!Image
