I’m going to put prose to the side for a while and focus more on poetry. Because I just feel I really need to write poems.

Whenever I now try to write prose it ends up as prose poetry and not fit for the novel(s) I’m trying to write.
So I guess I need to get down and dirty with it and get it out of my system (not that it ever is, it only lessens its intensity and leaves me alone, enough for me to do prose).

Anyway, I need to finish Mass Effect 2 now. The galaxy needs me!

OHMYGOD! *happy dancing and chocolate eating.*

After a long wait, I present to you…

Actuator 1.5 Pback

The Actuator 1.5: Borderlands Anthology in TRADE PAPERBACK! And somewhere along the way, it also became available for the Nook at B&N.

It was a great experience working with all these authors. We have a LOT of great reviews up now, too. If you’ve been waiting for the physical copy, wait no more!

:)

This is probably a good time to give you an update on The Actuator 2: Return of the Saboteur, too. I have the first round of edits back, and I’m working through them now. So, hopefully the next book in the series will be out in a few months.

I’ve written 50 (?) words in 5 days. I think I’ll just let the Fail Fairies dance all over me this year.

At the moment (after a weekend of work and a shoulder that aches and the sads) I can’t find it in me to write. The story is there, in my head, but I don’t have the energy to make it happen right now.

How do people do this? I neither have a room of my own, or time of my own, or any of those other things (like discipline…) that I would need to succeed. I suck.

Anyhow, it’s darker than ever (like always in November) and the sads has me in its grasp. I’ll just go buy (and eat) my own weight in chocolate.

I’ve written 120 words today, yesterday I wrote 0.
I don’t know if this story is going to work…  but I want it to because I really like it. And I have a good chance of getting this book published. Which is nice.
I’m beginning to think I have to forgo sleep to manage NaNoWriMo this year.
I can sleep when I’m dead.

The darkness of November doesn’t really help in any way either. I just want to stay in bed, maybe read, most definitely play video games all day long…
A girl can dream right?

Anyhow, crapload of stuff to do at work and I’m working this weekend (we’re at camp Friday to Sunday).

xoxo

Rainstorm.

Today is so dark. Like November decided to come at us with a vengeance. And this rain. I had hoped for a lot more of that delicious sunlight. I need sunlight! Don’t think it helps that I most definitely feel like I have the worst case of The Monday’s, ever.

Today I can’t get anything written on my NaNo piece, it’s stuck and I don’t know how to get back at it. So I’ll write something on another text and hope that this will make my brain jump start.

Anyhow, better make more tea and get writing.

xoxo

I’m 303 words in. I doubt I’ll get over 500 today…

  • We had guests for lunch (I did the cooking, because I wanted to).
  • I had to take the Pirate to the doctors (ear infection) and we had to drive to another town to find an open chemists.
  • I went to a swap clothes party to hang out with friends (got some real rad clothes out of it too).

And it feels a little strange, this sitting by the computer trying to hammer down words that together make up this story that’s been living in my head the last two years. I know where it’s going. I know how it ends. It’s the fleshing out and making longer than just a few choice words that’s the hard part… THE WRITING.

Anyhow, there are crisps waiting to be eaten, tea to be drunk and words to be hammered out.

nanowrimoI just realised I’ve not blogged for a month… wow.

I have no excuse. Other than that since I very rarely sit at from of a computer it’s not just happening (blogging that is). I could do it from my phone, sure, but honestly it’s more of a hassle than anything trying to get all the words down on that thing. Plus I always seem to get the weirdest autocorrects when I try to do that…

Right now I have no phone (or I have one I borrowed from the store when I handed mine in). Apparently it was overheating and that makes it NOT WORK. I won’t bother with anything on the phone I now have, because it’s a lend and it would be stupid to activate anything that requires passwords etc on it. So no easy internet access for Jenny.

Sucks to be me I guess. 

Since I don’t have my phone and all those things that come with it I’ve decided to also disconnect my laptop (from time to time). This because November and NaNoWriMo is coming and I’ve decided to really give it a go this year. I have my horror story to write and this might be a good a time as any.

So anyone wondering why I’m not out on the webz spreading my joy, this is why (also, since I saved all my phone numbers on Google I have no contacts in my phone – I won’t be contacting anyone as long as I’ve got this borrowed WW2 phone). I might post writing blogs during NaNo, but that’s probably it.

Anyhow, it’s lunchtime and a school holiday this week. Time to feed the horde!

Gothenburg Book Fair, the best place on earth!

Suddenly this random guy handed us free tickets! The kindness of strangers… thank you who ever you were.

Okay, so lots and lots and lots of people. I was told today (Sunday) was what Saturdays usually are like, Saturday had been a madhouse (they had to close the doors and not let any more in!).

I made a friend (?) at the Science Fiction Bookstore… I think it’s friendly anyway.

Who could belive these small bags of books would be so heavy (happiness is lots of (unread) books)!

Since we didn’t have seats next to each other we sat in the Bistro, it’s only one hour by train anyway.

So my doctor called me this morning at breakfast to tell me what it was they removed from my face.

Cancer (I can’t remember what she called it, it’s NOT melanoma, but a non-aggressive type of skin cancer and they’ve removed it all).

I know this is good news. I know I should be happy. I know.
But I’m sad. Sad because this will happen again.

And again.

And again.

I’m done with this, but it’ll never be done with me.

Anyhow, hubs and I are going to Gothenburg tomorrow. A night at a hotel and then Gothenburg Book Fair on Sunday. That I’m happy about.

beach

Today I found two raspberries in the garden, they were sweet and tart at the same time. I think they were the last raspberries this summer and that makes me a little sad.

I really do love autumn, the colours and the smells and the light can be magical, but summer is always summer. The long days, the almost impossibly short nights, the trips to the beach, not having any time to keep and the slower pace of life during summer vacation.

At the moment it feels like I’m running about doing everything and nothing, and I keep forgetting things (or I keep thinking I have forgotten something and that stresses me out)! I suppose it doesn’t help that I sleep poorly, have never ending headaches (head cold?) and just a feeling of meh

Last week was so intense. The anthology was released (yay yay yay!) and on Saturday we had a release party on Facebook (so much fun!). And on Sunday (was that really only yesterday?) I had two services to go to, work wise, and I was completely spent when I got home at 8.30pm.

It’s almost like it’s all a little too much at the moment, or is it that I need to do more?

I don’t know.

I feel as if I would like (need?) something to look forward to. I’ve had the book release hanging there all spring and summer, but now I’m like: “Huh… what now?” All I see are work things.

Well, there IS Gothenburg Book fair, last weekend in September. I’m hoping to get to go on Sunday (pretty pretty please let me be able to go!). I mean, can it get much better? A whole fair full of books and authors and poets and bookish people!

No, no it can not get any better.

Anyhow, people ask me all the time about the patch on my face. But sometimes they don’t, they just talk to me like they did before, and that my friends is wonderful. The scar is about 5 cm long, but as thin as scars get. It’s gonna heal just fiiiiine.
