tayastorm: (Achievement)
A little challenge for myself, based on the 101 Things in 1001 Days meme. In this case it'll be writing because that is what I do, and a dual challenge because I'm crazy because I decided if I just do 101 Fic they'll all end up being short fics and I already know I can do those.

So, between now and 3 November 2013, I will endeavour to write 101 drabbles and 101 longer fics, where drabbles are less than 1k and longfics are greater than 1k. All fic must be complete to count, and must be readable as a standalone.

And I'll try to maintain tags in case anyone wants to keep track.
tayastorm: (writing)
Thanks to a friend, starting Monday I'm going to attempt to write with Holly Lisle, using an old WIP, Necrology.

Unfortunately, Necrology started life as a NaNoWriMo story, and despite the wordcounts I got for it, never really progressed beyond that. So I've had to do some serious rethinking and reworking of the plot. Which turned out to work quite well, in theory at least.

The story now contains more zombies, more wars, more workable plotlines, and more rational conflict. I only have it in general terms so far, because I'm pretty sure that's what'll work best, but at least this time I can string all the thoughts together and make sense of it. For the most part.

What I'm hoping is that writing only 250-ish words a day will give me more thinking time between writing sessions to keep the threads orgaised, and more time each day to rework the worst of the obvious errors - or avoid having to making them at all.

Tomorrow I think I'll go over the characters and do a rough cheat sheet for them, and then I'll mostly leave it alone until Monday.

Tonight though, I'm going to stop being chicken and get on with the next scene of Aaron and Dale's story.
