Outlining

I never outline. Well, almost never. I also never finish anything.

Related? Quite possibly.

The last time I outlined anything was a little over two years ago in preparation for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) 2007. I only outlined about one-third of the story. Guess how much I have written to date?

That's right. The one-third I outlined.

Okay, to be honest, I should have said "The last time I outlined anything before last night..."

All I have so far is a rough outline, but I have almost all of my current project outlined. I just have to decide how to end it. I don't have all the fine points down, but I do know the general direction of the story. The big climactic scene is outlined. One entire subplot is outlined.

Just not the ending. Hopefully when I get close, the story will flow to a natural conclusion.

Long Time, No Post

Finally getting back into the whole internet thing. Real life slowed down enough to let me.

I now have my FaceBook and Twitter accounts set up. I'm not terribly active on either just yet, but I'm working on that. Any and all friends/followers are welcome.

I've got several stories in the works right now. Hopefully, I'll be able to share a bit of one of them soon.

I've got to go, so I'll keep this post short and sweet. I promise not to go four years (!) between posts again.

Wow. I can't believe it's been a month since I was last on here. I really meant to keep up with this better, but... stuff happens. ^_^ I probably won't be on much for awhile. We kinda don't have consistent internet at the moment...

Unfortunately, I have not gotten much writing done on my book recently. I haven't writen anything in at least two weeks. I was going to write more here, but I gotta split.

With the holidays coming up, I probably won't be online much. I'll try to post something about once a week, though...

Tomorrow, or rather later today, I will (hopefully) finally be running the HackMaster tournament I wrote over the summer. This will make my fourth attempt at holding it, so hopefully fourth time will be the charm. ^_^

Speaking of HackMaster, I've been working on a new player character race -- Neko, or cat people. I thought I had them finished earlier today, but when I went to actually create one, I found a few things I need to adjust... joy.


Fiona Fairhame is not my real name. In fact, It's the name of one of my HackMaster characters. I am also planning on using it as a pen name at some point in the future, like if I ever manage to get something published. It would probably help if I could finish something... Hopefully, I'll eventually post some short stories, or pieces of longer stories, here at some point in the future. Don't expect much until January, however.
