Car 9: It’s the End of the World As We Know It

Welcome to the to A is For Apocalypse blog train! If you haven’t had a chance yet, be sure to check out the other stops on the train.

[contentblock id=atrain]

One of the first apocalypses I can remember seeing was in Wizards. It was showing late at a comic convention in a tiny room in the basement floor. Only a handful of people were there, which was good, as the room could maybe have held twenty people. A TV was placed at the front of the room, the lights were turned out, and the world appeared on the screen. Then it blew up.

We laughed. What else could you do?

W1S1 2012, NaNo Draft, and a Merit Badge

W1S1 2012, NaNo Draft, and a Merit Badge

I didn’t do my W1S1 update at the end of November, because I’d spent most of my time on NaNo. Then in December, I spent it on other things (holidays are inherently distracting), or on trying to sort through the manuscript as it sat after Camp NaNo and NaNo. There doesn’t seem to be much point in putting up a pretty graphic, given how little progress I made on the short story revisions.

I’d made up my mind not to do W1S1 this year, but then I got an invite to the new Google+ community and accepted, so on that I’m easy to sway, apparently. I expect to follow along quietly, though, as I’m not exactly going to be following the rules. I want to get through my revisions at this point more than I want to be adding to the to-do list. We’ll see how that goes for the next few months 🙂

Other than that, I will continue to sort through the NaNo draft, and figure out which parts of this story I’m keeping. I’ve been telling people it will be interesting to see what the word count is once I’m done hacking out all the things I changed my mind on.

While I don’t talk about it much here, I have a novel draft that I keep going back to, yet never finishing. It’s been rewritten at least four times; characters have been added, deleted, renamed, merged, split; the setting has been changed; and the world revised and sharpened.

And it’s still not right.

W1S1 Check-in: September

W1S1 Check-in: September

Another small update, I’m afraid.

Still, I have my first S for my W1S1 pieces!

Anything in yellow is marked up on paper, which means getting the changes and rewrites into the computer. It’s not as fast as I was hoping for when I started posting these, but I’ve still chugged through a decent amount. Enough that I’ve decided to snag another merit badge: Editing! ^_~
