Five Things Make A Quick Post So I Can Go Eat Hungarian Food

1.  I woke up this morning with “check copyright date of The Little Mermaid” written on my hand. As the Long-Suffering Girlfriend does not actually graffiti me in my sleep, I could only assume I had written it at some point the night previous. It was another half-hour before I figured out what was going on, and remembered that it was a story about the little mermaid’s rather murderous brother.

2.  On a related note, for any Windows users out there, Scrivener, the novel-writing software that was previously Mac only rolled out a free Windows beta, found here. Anyone who participates in Nanowrimo this year and validates with 50,000 words gets a 50% off coupon for the full version when it rolls out next year. Hmm. Is saving 20 dollars off of a 40 dollar purchase actually worth all the teeth grinding and pain that occur when I decide to do the writer equivalent of extreme sports?

3.  I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo! The smart thing to do would be to work on that novel that I’m working on right now. But no, I’m going to do something entirely different. Some projects include “Pain Like Knives,” the story of the little mermaid’s wicked brother, Maksim’s story, “Handsome Dead Gentleman,” which is a story about a vampire and a revenant, or maybe that one where everyone’s unhappy and everyone dies. So Madeline, whatcha gonna write about? ^_~

4.  Since I’m going to be doing NaNoWriMo, November is going to be a necessarily short-story free zone. This makes me a little sad, but I’ve just finished a ton of short stories that I need to submit today.

5.  That said, I hate short story submission. It gets easier, but you know, that’s what they say about killing people.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Don’t make any deals with the devil that I wouldn’t.

    I can’t decide!

    I’m either:

    A) giving myself the 50K word target but putting it toward any new fiction (shorts, novellas, etc)

    or doing a novel-length work in one of the worlds I have shorts for, probably either:

    B) Edmonton After Dark, a small community of pan-kinky folk who have their own kinky version of the Fantasyland hotel off Whyte ave. and who want to go one step further and try and turn it into an Exit to Eden but with less dorkiness.

    C) the sexy realm of a couple of D/s lesbian were-coyotes who have a searing need to track down and bring to justice the man who kidnapped and infected them with um… kotoanthropy… in the first place.


    D) NewEarth6, in which 6 small colonies are established off-world just before humanity is wiped from the face of the planet.

    I just can’t decide, there is so much kinky/paranormal/si-fi/queer smut pounding at the walls of my head screaming to be let out!
