Editing Mode

You may have noticed that I haven’t been updating my fanfics. (Though you’ve been kind not to mention it.) One of the main reasons I haven’t been keeping up is because I’ve been in full-on Editing Mode. For some reason, I work best if I focus on one or the other.

This time, the culprit is Imperceptible. Do you have any idea what it’s like to read something you wrote a decade ago?

Welcome to my blog! This is a quickie (sticky) post with the latest news and useful links to help you find what you need.


NEXT UP! I’m on a quest to complete my unfinished stories. It’s Savvy‘s turn. Expect weekly updates. And after Clumsy wraps up here on the blog, I’ll bring you another (exclusive to ForthWrites.com) drabble-chapter fanfic. Mood Stripes: S/K, canon divergent, hurt/comfort, and … maybe a little bit silly. You can contribute prompts now!  ::twinkle::

THE RUMORS ARE TRUE! I’m working on a finale for Imperceptible. I’ll post it on release day for Bk1 in my new original series, because milestones are for marking!

NaNoWriMo 2017


Tada! I just validated my final word count for this year’s writing extravaganza. While I didn’t quite make it to the double-goal, I did manage 97,000~ words for the month, blocking in two books in my upcoming original series. I’m pleased with progress. ::twinkle::

Congrats to everyone who wrote words!

NaNoWriMo – Make Mine a Double!

Although I’ve been adding a running commentary in the comments of my NaNo sticky post, here’s a mini-update for those who have better things to do than stalk my every fleeting thought. Yesterday, I hit 50,000+ words with the third book in my upcoming original series. ::cue tickertape parade:: But #NaNoWriMo only comes once a year, so to take advantage of all the excitement and accountability offered to WriMos on the site, I’m Not Stopping. Today, I’ll plunge straight on into Book 4, with a new goal set at 100,000 words!

I love November.

NaNoWriMo 2017


This post will remain stuck to the top of my blog for the month of November. If you’re taking part in NaNoWriMo, let’s be friendly! Also, commenting here is the quickest way to get my attention if you’re gearing up for a group word sprint. Invite me. I love ’em! Let’s make the most of National Novel Writing Month! ::twinkle::

EDIT: As of 11/15, I’ve “won” NaNoWriMo, having hit 50,000+ words with the third book in my upcoming series. With half a month to go, I’m plunging straight into the fourth book. Why not double up? New goal: 100,000 words!

Fangirl Confession

Never have I ever. I know certain storylines backward and forward (including both canon details and fanon interpretations). For instance, I own the InuYasha anime and still have whole files of screencaps from my days as banner-maker for several IY contest communities. I’ve watched the series in both dubs and subs. And I kept up with the scanlations back when we were nearing the manga’s completion. But I have never actually Continue reading

What to do, what to do…

By my estimation, we’re roughly a month away from wrapping up Clumsy. As promised, weekly Savvy updates will begin shortly thereafter … however, those will take place over on FanFiction.net. Which will leave this blog rather lonely. So I’m picking through my story pile, trying to decide on something new that will post exclusively to ForthWrites.com. (Gotta lure you back somehow, right?)

I’ll do as I please. (I always do.) But I’m open to suggestions, since you’re my intended audience. What do you think, m’dears? Another Sess/Kag? Another ship? Another fandom entirely?
