Second Serving Sunday: Words, Words, Words Edition!


A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, in my little corner of the blogosphere

It’s been an exciting week here. There are several loose teeth between the kids, so that lends an automatic element of anticipation. I attended a NaNoWriMo Write-In on Tuesday, and I’m mulling some rather Big Deal (for me, anyway) writing news. I’ve got a little story out there in the big wide world…

And, oh…there’s this:

I participated in NaNo’s #DoubleUpDay. Since there was no way I could double my 22K word count in one day, I decided I would instead take aim at a target I’ve been flirting with for a while now…

The 10,000 word writing day.

And I did it!


I finished Saturday’s writing with 10,064 new words, and characters who are now living and breathing their own stories.

I love this writing thing!

And now, on to the week’s goodies!

Recently at shanjeniah:

Second-Serving Sunday: HalloNaNo Edition:

  • For ROW80, A Busy Nest meant tadpole metamorphosis, poetry, plotting, revising, and a tooth extraction, while NaNoing My Nest brought the end of month progress update, and counting down to NaNoWriMo.

And the week’s features…

Coffee and Conversation:

WIPpet Wednesday:

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

  • Bat, Bet, Bit, Bot, But”: Another SoCS-inspired excerpt from my NaNoWriMo novel, “The Earth Doth Move”. Ambassador Sarek of Vulcan contemplates water, and remembers a small child…

ROW80 Updates:

  • A Nestful of Words: In which NaNoWriMo is well underway, the words are flowing, and the story emerging…

What’s Next:

My writing plan for November:

  • Complete a rough draft my NaNoWriMo project, The Earth Doth Move, another Star Trek: TOS/Enterprise crossover fan fiction the companion novel to my fantasy WIP, Blood and Breath. This is moving right along through the opening scenes, and I’m liking the way this story is evolving. The characters are giving off little glimmers, I can feel them gearing up to take this story over. I really, really love this part!
  • Complete the review I promised a fellow writer a few weeks back, so it doesn’t get lost in the NaNo madness.

And on the blog:

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:

  • The Indie Author Power Pack: Just in time for NaNoWriMo (OK, I’ll peek into mine NEXT month). Three writing books geared for the indie author, for one unbelievably low price!

Life Stuff:

  • I attended a NaNoWriMo Write-In, had a lovely workout, and have been very busy typing, typing, typing on my NaNo project. I added many, many words, and the characters are breathing and living their own lives, with me more or less cast into the role of transcriptionist, at least for now…
  • There’s been hometending and yardtending, as we prepare for winter…it’s in the air, now, even when it’s warm -which is happening less frequently.
  • And there’s some rather big writing news I’m keeping to myself, just for now, while I take the time to absorb and enjoy…

Want to join in on the Second Serving Sunday fun? Here’s how!


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
