Chapter 5 is done!

So, just wanted to tell you guys that I finished chapter 5 last night. Or at least I think I did. It need some revising of course. But that's the thing:

I've decided to not write any more until November and NaNo. All I'm going to do for the rest of October is plan as many chapters as I can after chapter 10 (which is as far as I've come in chapter-by-chapter planning) and revise and edit what I've written so far, so there's less to revise after November. I have a feeling what I write in November is going to need a lot of revising and editing.

But expect a very... interesting... chapter 2 this weekend! It's called "A Fertilized Accident" if that does anything do your imagination :) I had so much fun writing that chapter, both the first time I wrote it and the second time when I rewrote the story after the 5 original chapters.

NaNo Rebel 2011 and health issues...

The NaNoWriMo website has been relaunched for this year's novel writing month. I signed up last December I think, thinking that was a great way of reminding me that I wanted to do NaNo this year.

Some of you probably know this, but I'm going to be a NaNo Rebel this year. Meaning that I'm not starting a brand new story at the stroke of midnight on November 1st. But I'm doing as much as I can on Lunar Phases, continuing right where I left off on October 31st. So I will not post any chapters of LP in November, I hope you understand that. But I plan on posting chapter two sometime on Friday, Saturday or Sunday this weekend. (And chapter 3 right at the end of October.) What day it is depends on the following:

1. I have to get a validator at HPFF to check it out, since it has some, hm... interesting... themes ;) I don't want to loose my Trusted Author status at HPFF because of it.

And 2. The first chapter of LP and chapter 12 of A Wolf's Soul hasn't been validated at Sycophant Hex Lumos yet, it's been over a week for LP and almost two weeks for AWS. You can contact them if it goes over a week, and I did yesterday evening. So I hope everything goes well. If not, I'll just post on HPFF and FFNet anyway. And of course get Orion Knight/Ellice to britpick it for me.

So, now I'm off to do my daily farming on FarmVille and then it's off to stretch my back, which is back to some of the pain from the first time I broke it. The thing is, I have no idea what caused it this time. It just came last night. I did some packing last night, but I was careful while doing it, out of habit and nothing else, and I've done more outrageous things before without consequences. The only thing that will cure this is 2-6 months lying straight on a couch, or thousands of miles of walking in the forest. Neither of which I have time for. Lovely.

Anyway, off to work on some responsibilities. Or at least try.
