NaNoWriMo: Day 2

I love how the story is revealing itself. I am not planning much, but many possibilities are popping into my head as I start to make connections in the story. Partly i wonder if i should avoid them, maybe they are too obvious since i thought of them just from what i’ve written? I don’t know. I’ll probably run with it, I need the material, after all.

What is Roshyn after, anyway?

NaNoWriMo: Day 1

I started my novel. I hate the first thousand words, which were just meandering and going no where. I stumbled on something interesting for the second thousand.

Today was a Good Writing Day. Even though I could not write in the morning, and only was able to get 300 words on the bus, I still finished out ahead.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
