NaNoWriMo 2015

Last year was the first year I won NaNoWriMo and I've gone through and edited and rewritten last year's book, still titled XMF Galactic Rally (that link goes to the parts posted here as I wrote them last year, so it's the unedited, terrible version, that starts with a giant wall of exposition, most of which changes by the end of the book). Once it's done with alpha reading and another edit, I'll podcast it.



November 2014 was the first time I "won" NaNoWriMo, and since I had such fun I thought about doing something similar again. I talked with my friend Xagafinelle and we eventually decided to try something new we're calling NaNoWriMore which doesn't really stand for anything at the moment.
The idea is to write a short story every day in Feburary, around 2000 words each story.
I'll be posting my stories here since they'll most likely fit somewhere in the Alternia contiunity.

NaNoWriMo update

After falling several days behind, I put in about 4000 words and got partially caught up. I posted the updates in several parts to try to keep the part number roughly in line with the day number, so hopefully the book will finish with part 30 on the 30th. Parts 19 through 27 posted tonight, and you can get started with part 19 here.

Gentle Readers ...

I can't count the number of times I've been called that.

I've said it many times; Superheroes are our modern myths, the legends of our times. They, like their counterparts of old, represent the best intentions of our society. To understand them is to understand what we wish we were and what we strive for, both as communities and as individuals. They show us how to use power selflessly, how to face danger and evil relentlessly, and how to overcome ourselves courageously.

Dimensional Summary

Alternia has 4 worlds, now. 5 if you count what's in the back of my mind. This entry is to sum them all up and get their abreviations straight.


World of Heroes (WoH): The original Alternia setting I came up with when I was ... like ... 12. Younger, probably. It's full of superpowered beings, very few of which were in my original lineup of heroes and villains. I could use some of them to flesh out the previous generations of heroes.


Users deletions

Due to a misconfiguration in this new site's user registration process, thousands of spam users have signed up ... The good news is they've done nothing but create accounts, as new accounts aren't active until approved by either me or Alarin, but the bad news is that in deleting the obviously fakes accounts I may have deleted some real ones as well. If that is the case, go ahead and sign up again and/or email me and I'll get it straightened out.

Migration and cleanup

I'm still in process of migrating content from the old site to this new site and making things look pretty again. Please bear with me.

New site on the way

I'm in the process of migrating content from the old site to the new site and this is mostly a test blog post.
