    Companies are sneaky af. When they learned I was going to leave they gave me some pretty good insurance to stay. Well played. Well played.

    So, Dr Who made an alien race with “Mpreg where men only give birth to boys” canon. There may be fanfic repercussions on this one.

    Y’ever worry that after you leave a review someone’s gonna check out what you’ve written yourself and then decide humanity is beyond redemption and set out to destory us all?

    Weird dreams are weird. So you know you that dream where everyone wants to see your presentation? Yeah. Only, I saved it on a thumb drive on my belt. and the teacher was like show us your world. A solar system pops out and all. I get points deducted because “my geography is uninspired and bland.” We’re talking like HD incredible detailed world. And they decide to bitch about my geography. Every single variable listed and on display(my world is textbook life viable) to which I replied at least my world can support life. Shots fired the whole class goes “Oh damn.” Somewhere in the dream world I just pissed off a demiurge/deity.

    Any NaNo people this year? (2018)

    It’s just over two weeks until this year’s NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) The goal is to finish the first draft of a story, without any prewritten prose, starting Nov 1st and finishing Nov 30th. There are a bunch of coupon and promos for participants and winner, but the prezzies vary year to year. Createspace used to offer physical printings if you published through them, but they were completely absorbed by Kindle this year. The idea is that a little friendly competition helps a lot pf new writers to finish a story. outlines, character studies, prep is fine. Just no story. Register before Halloween because the servers are usually hit hard on the start and end days. They added a fanfic category for stories last year. I started writing during 2007 NaNo and hit the total eight times. (you submit a file, that you can scrqmbleif you think sojmeone would steak it) A lot of my big fics started during NaNo. It’s fun to see your progress graph inch up every day and see how your friends or town are doing. They also sponsor a couple Camp NaNo sessions earlier in the year, but those can be writing, revising or some other task. I’m restarting my prison ship story after several years in a trunk. I could not figure out why it just withered away when I tried to figure out how to revise it. To keep me insanely busy I’m taking a ‘how to write a novel’ class, and hoping it will provide enough insight to strengthen the story. It’s a 32 lesson self-paced package, but this is the beta and it’s not finished. So I will have to use the later lessons more for future novels… I’m goign to try to fit a chapter of my current big fic in November too. I also hear there is some holiday that month and I’m wondering if a frozen dinner will help. If you want to writing buddy, I’m bucolic-scribe on that site. I use this challenge like a booster shot for my dilligence and organization, because my output drops below 500 words a day every summer and the 2k boost usually lasts me until spring. Give it a try!

    The only one that I can think of, that GeorgeGlass hasn’t already mentioned is “Fixer”. It’s a bit clichéd, I’ll grant you, but I’ve seen it used in both movies and TV shows, and it could fit. Although there might be a bit of implication that the person “fixes” uncomfortable situations, as in might have someone killed if you need them to be killed, etc. English is my second language, so I don’t always realise implications like that. On a different note, I kind of like that word GeorgeGlass suggested, “acquirer”, I might steal it one day

    Not doing it this year, but I’d been wondering who here was. Thumbs up to y’all!

    I skipped last year, and I’ve been miserable about it all year, so come the hells or high water, I will be doing NaNo this year. And for anyone else wanting to buddy up, I am MorwenNavarre over there, and I will be writing a Ghost and Gerry novel, for anyone who reads my Witch’s Apprentice series. I’m still thinking about the title, but I have a half-assed plot in mind, involving… well, I have to write the thing first, before I write a blurb!

    So, did a bad thing... Still doing a bad thing... Posting in class... But, two chapters of Hunted up and hopefully get to reviewing the Halloween anthology this evening... NSFW, you say? I say, if no one knows, no one says anything... Lol.

    Re: “Wishful” Snowdrift and more! (That doesn’t feel like too much of a spoiler.) That scene includes several elements that aren’t usually my thing (eg, the footjob), so I’m glad you enjoyed it. We shall see. Thanks for reviewing!

    That feeling when beta reader 1 says the stuff you have sounds good because she goes wherever the author wants to their readers but beta reader 2 says there’s too much information being thrown all at once and everything is difficult to follow. TT-TT Time for some (hopefully) quick edits!

    I like broker or fixer myself. Nicely ambiguous, and doesn’t always imply mayhem for hire. Although factotum appeals to my love of extraordinary words…

    5 more days until the Halloween Anthology will be up and running! Everyone is welcome to add a story! If you haven’t started yours yet, there are some Halloween story ideas in the Original Challenges forum. And don’t worry if you don’t get your story done by the 20th, you can still submit an entry up to Halloween and beyond.
