Progress Notes

Tales of Episode #112
An hour's worth of work over two days gave us:

568 / 6,000

A good start, I think.

Too many other things going on right now so it's a bit slow in the writing department.

But I expect things should pick up soon.

KAT+MOUSE, Pie, and Shameless Self-Promotion In Action

LadyAce and I were in a Carrows the other night ordering slices of pie and wearing black, hooded, KAT AND MOUSE sweatshirts.

The waitress at the counter looked at us and said, "What's Kat and Mouse?"

I told her.

Her face lit up. "That sounds awesome!" She flipped her order pad to a blank sheet, pulled a pen from her apron, and wrote down the URL.

"Tell me something," she went on. "Is it highly inappropriate content?"

"Yes," LadyAce and I chorused.

The waitress went saucer-eyed. Then an impish grin splashed across her face. "I like it already!"

And that, Dear Readers, is the power of advertising matching sweatshirts.

Revamping...

Revamped the look of the blog.

Tried to keep the theme somewhat similar to the previous incarnation.

Whadda ya think?

ETA: Primarily done to "open up" the blog a bit. The previous theme started to feel a bit cramped. I think this new layout lets things breathe a bit.

I could be completely off-base, though.

Oh well. New look. Voila!

Hit Send And...: Update

Okay.

Agents Group #1 all came back with "Thanks, but not for us."

On to Group #2...

Progress Notes

Tales of Episode #111
Done.

Yeah, it's a short one. Another interlude.

Which means we are go for--

Tales of Episode #112
Episode breakdowns are chugging along. I just need to come up with a few minor plot bits/details and I should be ready to dive into Draft #1.

Say...next week?

We shall see.

Tales of Non-KAT AND MOUSE Episodes
What?!? I'm working on something that isn't KAT AND MOUSE?

How dare I?!

But, yes, I am. Yes, I have a few other stories percolating up there in the ol' Story Factory.

One was ready to be written. And it was. A short-short. Under a 1,000 words. And I cranked that sucker out, edited, revised, polished, and sent it off to find a good home.

There are two more that keep floating to the surface but they're not quite ready yet. Needs to simmer a bit longer.

I'll let y'all know when those two leap forth.

Yep. I Am.

I've come to a conclusion and finally admitted what kind of writer I really am.

It's on the banner at my website.

Yep. I am.

And damn proud to be one.

Hit Send And...: Update

One month since sending off the submission packet to SP#1.

And no response yet.

Yes. I'm feeling antsy.

But that's how things work in this world.

Lots o' waiting.

So now we begin the Agent Query Phase.

I've just sent queries to the first group of agents on my list. I think I'm going to at least give it a week. Then on to Group Two.

There go those stomach butterflies...

Progress Notes

It's October.

Back to work on the serial.

We begin with breakdowns for episodes 11 and 12.

And awaayyy we go.
