For a moment it didn’t look I was going to make it today, but eventually I once again managed to exceed the set goal and catch up what I didn’t get to during the past two days. Despite dropping a couple of small balls I do believe I can call this a fairly successful first week for the first story of my first book. The final tally after seven days was 1,159, meaning I’ve exceeded the initial goal of 100 words per day (and thus 700 per week) by more than 400 words. A quick calculation leads to 165 words per day on average, which may have been higher if I had actually written on those writing-less days, but it does mean the set goal can be increased for next week!

Now, it’s not quite highspeed progress you’d probably be looking for if you actually want to get something done within a reasonable timeframe, but for me consistency is currently the key to progress. Once writing on my story consistently is going well I can turn to speeding things up. And like I said, that’s exactly what’s going to happen starting tomorrow. As I’m not certain how well I’ll be able to keep up, I’m still going to be careful, increasing the goal to 150 words per day for now, slowly but surely working my way up to true progress. I won’t be reaching hyperspace at the moment, but if last week has been any indication, I think that number will be rising pretty quickly.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a certain kitty’s instructions to follow! ^_^



Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
