Hey, everyone, it’s the Week 1 update on Search and Rescue!
As it turns out, I had finished Chp. 8 and got a few paragraphs into Chp. 9 previously (I was just halfway through Chp. 8 for several years, and forgot I’d finished that one up), so that’s a bit less that I have to get re-written!
This past week has involved re-reading what I have already written, and also poking at the first draft to see bits I want to keep, or to keep slightly modified, and little bits and pieces of information that I dropped in the first draft that I want to slip into the re-write in some way or another.
Hello, everyone! Yes, it’s been… well, ages. I have updated my other blogs semi-recently, but this blog – my blog for my original, publishable stories, is now going into active status.
For the very simple reason that I fully intend to get the second draft (aka the rewrite) of Search and Rescue (Psi Department Book 1, my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel) finished by the end of March (or, if worse comes to worst, the end of April), and have it ready to be published before the end of this year. I’m currently in the middle of Chp. 8 of 14, and have been for a few years now, so I’d really like to get this finished and done with.

So, every year I do NaNoWriMo, I maintain a progress report page on my website. (Once I really get this site going, I’ll have a copy on here as well.) Feel free to check it out (and cheer me on)!
NaNo Progress Page
So, it’s November. And we all know what November means, right?
Yep, it’s NaNoWriMo time again! Yay!
This year, I’m doing something… semi-different, let’s say. Not as different as last year (when I did a fanfic), but not with quite the same sort of tone as my other stories.
Heh. Its working title is Accidental Romance for a reason.
Science-fiction (because last year, fanfic or no, was a fantasy, and my Bunnies tend to like switching them out), and inspired by Crossover Queen’s Count Taka and the Vampire Brides. Not nearly the same – Count Taka is very definitely supernatural fantasy – but definitely inspired by.
Twenty years ago, the Hre’Eaki were discovered by the Interstellar Confederacy. Another alien race with the technological advances to travel FTL, but no interest in doing so.
Hideki Akayagi is a graduate student at Heian University on Nara, doing his Masters in Folklore. Sru’Kivir is the third and youngest child of the leader of the Sru Clan. When Hideki is chosen as one of the students for the Hre’Eaki Cultural Exchange Program, they meet.
And then the real fun begins.
Now, where did I leave those files on Earth animals that change sex….
Hi, everyone. Welcome to my author’s blog.
This blog is all about my writing; including posts about my writing process, about my books, about interesting facts I’ve discovered while researching, and whatever else you can think of to do with writing. It’s also a point of contact for any readers of my books who want to communicate with me, ask me questions, etc. (And while I haven’t had any books published as of Sept. 2015, I’m hoping to get my first one published within the next six months.)
At the moment, this blog is fairly empty, but come Nov. 2015 (and my eighth NaNoWriMo), I should be posting more on it.
So, welcome, and be merry!
