Cultural Shift

Just would like to leave you with this tweet I just saw.

Diversity in media and entertainment empowers everyone for generations to come.

Confessions Of A Former Misogynist

A worthwhile read.

If I saw a blog or comment by a feminist that challenged my world view, my anger button would be pressed and, rather than responding rationally, I’d lash out with gendered insults, all while completely failing to empathise with them.

NaNoWriMo 2015 — 30 Days Later

Today is December 1.

That means NaNoWriMo is now over.

Over the past month, I’ve written some updates on my progress during this annual November challenge to write 50,000 words. Mostly anecdotal stuff, nothing special. More like pouring out some thoughts on my current state. Let me now take some time getting into the meat of what that month was like for me.Read More »

NaNoWriMo 2015 — The Banner

So that happened today. 50,236 words to finish the challenge.

Now to finish the novel.

Detailed post about my experience, the novel, some nifty graphs, and all that good stuff coming at the end of November or so.

Yay!

NaNoWriMo 2015 — Final Stretch

Eight days left.

6,342 words to go.

I’ve kinda sorta broke through some of the issues I had lately, getting the narrative back on track. I had to skip to an emotionally damaging scene at the [beginning of the end] of part 3, and after that, I jumped back to where I actually stopped and pushed through. Worked, too.

After a week of relatively weak word counts of around 1000 per day, I’ve finally managed to push past the ideal 1667 today. And I have things to do for the next little bit, a good vision of how I get what I have now to where said damaging scene should fit.

Hitting the 50k shouldn’t be a problem. But the story won’t be as close to being finished as I wanted it be by that time. Still, hitting that number was the goal. Everything else will get fixed in post.

Right?
