    I know it’s a little late, but I hope they are still gathering videos and stuff to help fill the hours of the virtual TuacaCon, Saturday 11/12

    “If you are a writer, musician, or comedian that has the ability to do webcam work (or prerecorded video, in certain cases), please comment here or an email to pgholyfield at specficmedia.com.”

    Hope to hear some Junkies get a little airtime during the festivities.

    is anyone as freaked out as I am that we have less than 3 weeks to launch day 2011? I haven’t given a second’s consideration to what to write this year!

    I am planning on getting the prologue of the horror novel I’m writing up there soon as well….rewriting technically since I wrote the first copy a few years back. And for now I think I’ve decided on Infected, but knowing how I change my mind I am not willing to place bets on it yet lol.

    And just for your convenience, a link to both of my writing samples from GR. http://www.goodreads.com/story/list/5708293

    It’s good to know someone is actually listening. I haven’t got much feedback so far. So I meant it.

    I haven’t pulled it ….. not yet, allthough I may have to as I’ve missed a part of the story and need to go back and fill in the gap. I’ve written 4 more chapters too. I just haven’t had chance to record it yet.

    Well a few months ago I could have directed you to a preview of my novel, but since I’m reworking it I took it down lol. I do have a short story on my Goodreads account, same name as here. Its far from my normal style of gloom and doom but it was for a college challenge and I thought it was pretty good. But trust me, as soon as I have time I am planning on a story for Tuesday Terror. I just need to decide Infected or Ancestor…or maybe Nocturnal. Oh damn, I dunno.

    It is still my proudest moment when I wrote a scene that made me feel a little sick to the stomach. I figure, if I can shock myself as the writer of it then it can’t be too terrible right lol.

    last year the company I worked for for almost 10 years went out of business and I also had to move all around November, so I my head wasn’t really into it.

    This year I’ve got an idea for a super hero story that I’m planning on writing. Going to try very, very hard to complete it this year.

    The feeling sorry for myself bit is beacuse of the girl flu. Allthough the work situation is always on my mind.

    I’ll make it work somehow if I don’t get a job. I just need to get better in time for the letter on Thurdsday next week. I’m not sure if I can open it this time…

    Feel sorry for those bastards if they don’t hire you for a job you’re perfect for!! They’ll be missing out on the Awesomeness that is GJ, and trust me, that is truely something no one should miss out on!

    And even if you don’t get the job, you’ll be fine. When one door closes, others always open. And I know it won’t help you pay the bills, but you know you always have us! And we’ll help you get through this, no matter what happens! Kiss

    I only listened to one chapter cuz I am so sleepy … but I look forward to listening to the others. Great story, great voice, great accent, great presentation!!! I felt like I was listening to one of those Doctor Who stories that I love (prolly the accent)! I am sleepy and feel like I may be crabby so multiply my positive review by ten and that’s how I really feel. Sorry, and thank you Bella for sharing the link!!!

    But only the first time I’ve won. It was very exciting. That pesky old ‘life’ thing kept getting in the way the other five times. My daughter does the Young Writer’s Program. On her profile she put that her biggest inspiration was me. More specifically, she wrote: “My mom, because even though she keeps losing and losing she never stops trying”

    I’m so pleased to find some other Nano folks here. I’ve been participating for 3 years now, this will be my 4th this year. All successful. The novel I am working on is actually a rewrite of the first novella I wrote for Nano 3 years ago. And man is it taking it out of me, and can’t stop the new ideas from flowing in and taking over what I’m doing. These characters, they never listen to me I’m telling ya.

    I’ve never had anything published or put out to the general public; but then I’ve never tried. It’s just something I really love to do. I have one completed NaNoWriMo novella; 5 scripts written during Script Frenzy; some poems, a few works in progress, and a million ideas just waiting to find the page.

    I had two stories accepted for a small press anthology that eventually went belly-up (the anthology, not the publisher; as far as I know, Living Dead Press is still going strong). That was a serious bummer when the news came.

    With this latest round of layoffs, I’m realizing that Corporate America isn’t something I want to do for the next 30 to 40 years, so I better get fucking serious about this writing thing if I want to find a way out.

    Or become a manwhore. Either/or.

    Right now I’m sort of half unpublished and half published. My fiction writing is currently unpublished though I have several finished works, I am trying the traditional publishing route right now but may just bite the bullet and put something out myself as an ebook to give it a test run. But my nonfiction freelance work is online and I do get paid for that, so I consider that published. And I have definately thought about writing up something for TT…just haven’t gotten to it between nonfiction paid work, my actual day job, and a novel rewrite.

    Congratulations you two!!! Their talent & your hard work on the submissions. Good luck to all! Mr Sigler has inspired award winning (well currently deserving but soon to be winning) writers! I’ve liked all of the stories so far! Great job! I thought this post was gonna tell us TT was back!

    Profile photo of sadock

    ….have their work reviewed/performed on Tuesday Terror.

    Within the past week, TT got great news. The Parsec Award Committee honored two of our authors by selecting us as finalists for Best Speculative Fiction – Short Form in 2011. So if you see PDFD or ThMaggot hanging out, drop them a line and congratulate them!

    I’ve probably started writing 100+ stories, but never gotten through more than a few pages.

    I have absolutely no desire to ever finish one, but starting them probably triggers some kind of reward system in the brain.
