 It took me a day to process this: NaNoWriMo 2011 led to my most depressing wordcount. Now I've woofed five in a row.

My self-confidence has now taken a huge hit. I'm still intending to go for an even 10 next year, but after that I don't know.

It's about 33 days away now.

I realized that my original plan will be too complex for a month's project. Instead, I'll be using another idea. It seems that I'll be doing a western with SF concepts... but not Cowboys and Aliens.

At midnight, Script Frenzy 2011 began.
jeffthoth: (writing)


Both have the same idea:write 50000 words in the 31 days of January. You can continue an unfinished NaNo.

I have too many other things to do now to try it. Maybe in 2012.

NaNoWriMo again. My eighth, trying again for my fifth win.

I'm trying to get my other projects done and to get as much of my novel outline done ahead too.

Script Frenzy 2010 is over now... I dozed off before 10 PM, so I missed my chance to add another page or so to my final count. I didn't think I'd make it to 100 pages, but at least 69-70.

Instead, I dozed off after supper until past 1AM. My final tally was 68 pages.

- a lot has happened though!

1). I had to find a new Australasian nominator for DUFF. One of the ones I already had needed to recluse herself. As an incumbent administrator, her nominating me was a conflict of interest.

So I had to e-mail around to get a new one. I laughed when one guy who turned me down suggested I get a few years known behind my belt...between APAzines, letters in comics, letters in zines and my own award-winning one I have more than 20 years of experience!

He mentioned ANZAPA, the SF APA in Australia. I declined because a) it would dilute the time for my own zine b) joining an APA again would be a step backwards for me and c) costs would be too high for me.

2). Another potential shared notes for a panel on comics at a local Melbourne con. Regardless or not of my attendance I've offered to send him some info.

3). I wrote a piece for my prolific friend Chris Garcia's zine Annual. Chris deserves a Hugo for all that he does.

4). DUFF doesn't have a Facebook group, while TAFF does. Another project for me to start.

5). My zine is coming along nicely.

6). The DUFF ballot is now out. I'm one of 5 candidates, some with big credentials.

I'll do my best, but without animosity. The final vote is at 11:59 PM on Mar 31. May the best fan win!
