Action scene

I've written an action scene! And it was fun!

I can't do action scenes so I'm always amazed when I do. This is why I like Nano. It stretches my limits.

1297 words to go and counting.

It's looking very good for you. Way to go!

It is fun to do different things sometimes.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Bevie.

A lot of what I wrote is crap but it did take me places I wouldn't have gone. The last little bit was the most fun.

Whirlochre said...

You Kick-ass hog, you.

Adam Heine said...

Awesome. I love action scenes. It's the only reason I kept doing them enough to the point where they didn't suck.

And congratulations on Nano! That's a huge accomplishment, regardless of the quality of those words :-)

fairyhedgehog said...

Whirl, you always bring a smile to my face!

fairyhedgehog said...

Adam, thank you! I didn't know I liked action scenes so that was a revelation for me!

sylvia said...

I'm with you, I can write dialogue all day long but it's nervewracking trying to put together fast action and have everyone move correctly. In fact, I've just written an action scene today and I'm sure it's totally confusion. And that's even with the lights off so I didn't have to explain who was where!

I saw you got 50k - you rock!

fairyhedgehog said...

Sylvia, an action scene with the lights off? Is this erotica then?

sylvia said...

LOL - I keep meaning to try to write an erotic short story but every time I end up deciding the curtains desperately need hoovering.

It was a knife fight in a night club where the power was cut! The worst of it is, I don't know who did it.

fairyhedgehog said...

Sylvia, you can't hoover those curtains too often. Unhoovered curtains are a disgrace.

I hope you find out who the culprit was!

Kate said...

Congratulations! I just saw that you're done! AWESOME JOB!!!!

fairyhedgehog said...

Scott, LOL!

Kate, thank you. I didn't think I would make it but I did.

Robin S. said...

Excellent!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Robin!

stacy said...

That's great, Fairy! Don't you love it when you figure out you can do something you thought you couldn't?

fairyhedgehog said...

stacy, "Can have a go at" rather than "can do", but yes!

pjd said...

HOORAY! You crossed the NaNo finish line, a tremendous accomplishment. And with an action scene, to boot.

fairyhedgehog said...

pjd, thank you!

Thank you! Sadly, I can't read your blog but I like your profile picture.

The Sapphic Housewife said...

(I know I'm late, but) Felicitaciones, Fairyhedgehog! I can't wait to see it on a shelf at a bookstore near me!

fairyhedgehog said...

Many thanks, SH! It should be coming out in December 2057, or thereabouts.

Congratulations to another happy nanowrimo customer. Once you get into print you'll have several novels in the pipeline. My book could probably use a bit more action.

I wanted to e-mail you, but I could only find an old disposable e-mail address which I don't know if you're still using.

The bottom comment is yours. The first half of the manuscript is completed. Are you still interested, and do you have anything I could critique in return?

My e-mail is davidwei at optonline dot net. There are probably auto harvesters smart enough to parse that, but I get so much spam it doesn't make much difference.

fairyhedgehog said...

Hi David,

I'd love to think I'd get into print one day but I'm a long way from that!

I'll email you about your book. I remember it looked really good fun!

(In case anyone is interested, if you put almost anything in front of .fairyhedgehog@recursor.net it will reach me.)

Sharon Mayhew said...

Hi there fairyhedgehog.

I discovered you through Rachelle Gardner's blog. I adore your blog name. I was born in England and think hedgehogs are special creatures.

WTG on your Nano accomplishment!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Sharon! I stole my name from a Terry Pratchett book. I hope he won't mind.

I see you're up for blizzards in your part of the world. I'm not keen on all that snow but at least you can get some writing done.
