Me Jar #4

I usually reboot my Me Jar once I run out of a gem colour. This time, I let a few of them run out, as I really wanted to reboot it at the start of the year. So here’s my final jar for 2016.

Me Jar #4

Because I’d run out of colours, I fell out of the habit of putting the gems in at the end of the night. I’m hoping to restart that as well. I think I’m going to shift the colours up a little, as some of the things I was tracking became habit enough they were a given and don’t need a gem anymore.

Me Jar Count, with Cat

The tricky ones, such as getting up early and going to bed before midnight, I’m going to keep. I have to keep exercise in, as I’ve completely fallen off routine for that one. That still means I have some unused colours, though. I’ll have to think of new goals for those ones!

Cover Reveal: D is for Dinosaur

We have the cover for D is for Dinosaur!

Click on the teaser image to see the full cover at Rhonda Parrish’s site:

D is for Dinosaur Teaser

For the fourth installment of Rhonda Parrish’s Alphabet Anthologies, contributors were challenged to write about dinosaurs. The resulting twenty-six stories contain widely different interpretations of the dinosaur theme and span the spectrum from literal to metaphoric.

Within these pages stories set in alternate histories, far-flung futures and times just around the corner, dinosaurs whimper and waste away, or roar and rage. People can be dinosaurs, as can ideas, fictions and flesh. Knitted dinosaurs share space with ghostly, genetically engineered and even narcotic ones.

Teenagers must embrace their inner dinosaurs in order to find peace and belonging, a dying woman duels a God in a far future city that echoes aspects of our past, an abused wife accompanies her husband on a hunt for an ancient power and finds more than she could ever have imagined and a girl with wonderful magical powers stumbles across the bones of a giant long-dead lizard. And so much more!

NaNoWriMo 2016!

Getting the post in at the last minute, but still in October this year 🙂

So, I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo again this year. I’m looking forward to it, but in a more laid-back way that usual. Possibly too laid back, as I am totally not ready and it starts tomorrow!

3-Day Novel Contest

A few months ago, on a whim, I looked up the 3-Day Novel Contest.

It was something I had heard of a long time ago, looked at briefly, and then decided that was a bit too short a time frame. However, since hearing about it that first time, I’ve done quite a few NaNos, some of them in much shorter than a month, and while looking for a new challenge, I remembered the one for a novel in three days.

When I reached the site, I found I’d missed the Early-bird Registration by only a few days, and was disappointed. I considered just giving it a pass this year as a result of poor timing, and then I saw on their Twitter stream that they’d extended the deadline and I hadn’t missed it after all. That, I decided, was a sign I should join up this year for certain. So I did.

It starts tomorrow. Or, more like in fifteen minutes now, because I left this blog post very later.

I have actually outlined a project for a change. I have arranged food for the weekend and stocked snacks. I have made certain I will not be disturbed, and I am going to throw myself into writing and pretty much nothing else for the next three days.

I am as excited about this as I was about my first NaNo oh-so-many years ago. It is a lot of fun. Whatever happens, however it goes, I am glad I took the plunge and signed up.

Here’s to a great weekend writing marathon!

Today is the launch day for C is for Chimera!

Blend reality with fantasy. Mesh science fiction with mystery. Mix history with what should have been. They are all chimera.

A shadow tells a tale of schoolyard bullies. A long-vanished monster returns from the cold dark. Make-up makes up a life. Alchemy, Atlantis, and apocalypse. These 26 tales bring both chaos and closure to dark and elusively fantastic geographies.

My story is the letter G, and completes the trilogy I started with my stories in the first two alphabet anthologies.

You can join us on Facebook today for the Release Party, and click the cover to visit Poise and Pen website for links to purchase sites.
