We has domain.

Pssst! Just sticking my head in real quick to say… Sorry guys! The site was down for a while this afternoon while I was fighting with the technology fairies. But we’re back now, and SURPRISE! We have a domain! Still running and editing the blog via WordPress, but I went ahead and snagged the .net domain just cause I can. Wanted the .com, but through a series of events with which I will not regale you… we’re at .net for now. Suffice to say that sometimes (more often than I would like) technology just sort of hates me. Lol.

Don’t believe me? Ask the ColaWriMos about how I lost over 15,000 words from my NaNo novel from Scrivener last week.

In any case, here we are!

In other news, I have been very bad to this blog over the last couple of months. Just terrible. But that’s how it goes. I read somewhere, it may have been something Stephen King said in his memoir On Writing – “The more words you write in your blog, the fewer words you write in your book.” Lol. It’s true. And I have been writing more on actual projects lately, so if this blog has suffered a bit as a result, so be it. That being said, I will now attempt to make up for some of that neglect with a detailed post about how I’m writing my NaNo novel this year! We can do it! We have the technology!

This November, I am pretty psyched to be trying out some new gadgets for my mobile write ins and new software for organizing my writing during NaNo. There is a thread over at the NaNoWriMo forums devoted to tech topics, with some helpful suggestions and resources for organizing your novel and juggling files from multiple devices throughout the month. Check it out here for more tips and tricks from fellow WriMos.

And here’s my current setup! Continue reading
