2,500 words enough?

DebE —  January 12, 2012 — 2 Comments

Of course not. Only a complete manuscript will do, but it might be a bit much to ask in one day.  Well, I had more fun writing tonight’s words than I have for a little while. I got to play with my characters a bit, all while getting information across and setting them up for the next phase of the plot. Now, that’s what I call progress.

A recent addition to my “Writing” playlist:

The video’s a bit ‘Meh’, but the song is sexy.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

    She has an interesting voice.

    I’m glad you’re finding more joy in your writing.


    She does have an interesting voice – a bit of an acquired taste, too. First time I heard it I wasn’t sure if I liked it. But, I gave it another shot. Not too sure if I’d get into the rest of her stuff, but, I like the imagery this one conjures up for me.

    Thank you for your words, sir. I am glad, too. This whole thing started as a way to entertain myself when nothing else was going on (and I was being paid to stay at my desk). I never planned for it to take off. It just did. So, I didn’t have a plan. Nor any sort of writing education (just high school English). But, three years of researching is starting to come together. If it ever comes to anything, it will be proof of determination.

Wanna talk about it?
