Second-Serving Sunday: The Day-Late, WHEW! Edition

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

Last week in life:

  • Annalise and I celebrated a bit of unseasonably warm weather by going for a swim; I joined local NNWM folks for another NaNo Write-In; an early snowstorm, Thanksgiving; we #SparkleFridayd, and I wrote like a madwoman till the end of the month! BWAHAHA!

And now, on to the week’s goodies!

The end of NaNo, but not the end of the writing!

Second-Serving Sunday: Instant Plot Twist -Just Add Absinthe Edition

And now, last week’s features…

Coffee and Conversation:

  • Sometimes, You Just Need to NaKnow, Y’Know? And sometimes, life gets in the way of blog posts…this didn’t happen last week, because NaNo and taking my daughter swimming, you know? =)

WIPpet Wednesday:

  • This week, we skip ahead to visit Trip and TPol after they finally do what they’ve danced around for three years, in Thanksgiving Night Terror.

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

  • In Scents and Sensibility, Ambassador Sarek’s perceptions of humanity – and a half-human boy who was once his son – are affected by scent, which was this week’s prompt.

Variety’s Spice:

ROW80 Updates:

  • Thankful for My Wordy Nest: An imaginative, noodling, “what-iffing” post, in which I am thankful for words and living the life I love..
Choosing a gift to share with another child…sparkly!

What’s Next:

My writing plan for December:

  • Complete kids’ first quarter homeschool reports, due December 15.
  • Complete rough draft of my “dangling” fanfiction WIP from July 2013 CampNaNo, Perchance to Dream. – 10 scenes left to write.
  • Complete and post the review I promised a fellow writer a few weeks back, so it doesn’t get lost in the NaNo madness.. I will revise as needed and post it to Amazon this Tuesday – and this time I mean it! =)
  • Draft a basic writing plan for 2015, with a focus for each season/round.

And on the blog:

  • For Coffee and Conversation: Sometimes, You Just Need to NaKnow, Y’Know? I’ll explore the cowtrails I’ve encountered while drafting my NaNo novel; and reflect on how the internet has revolutionized my writing. Oh, and I want to hear about your strange research, too! I know I said I was writing this last week, but this week NaNo is over, so….
  • WIPpet Wednesday hosts another excerpt from my Story a Day May exploration, The IDIC Romancethis week, Trip and TPol are back in the cell, and dealing with impulses that might just be bigger than us.
  • Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), Another NaNo-centric stream-of-consciousness novel excerpt based on the weekly prompt, TBA.
  • ROW80 Updates: My twice-weekly progress on A Round of Words in 80 Days. Hopefully, these will also be NaNo-centric!
A Helpful Spirit`

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:

Life Stuff:

  • NaNo finishes, and the after party; catching up with the rest of life (blog comments, hometending, and stuff); more writing, at a more leisurely pace (because the novels aren’t finished yet), and setting a plan for December.

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!
