Taking the Field for NaNoWriMo

Halfway through the month and we are halfway there. In fact, we are almost all the way there for NaNo but halfway there for Taking the Field. The burn has been slower than I anticipated and as is my brand, it’s looking like my word count will be a good 10% over target. But, that’s editing’s problem. Lol.

First Strike Series – More Clarity

Book 1 – Henley and Tanimen

Book 1: Henley and Tanimen – A super eager ice hockey player who just wants a place to call home and a silver spoon brat who wants to be the best.

Book 2: Thor and Marcus – An androsexual enigma who needs to pick up his grades and the science genius goalie who’s socially awkward.

Book 2 – Thor and Marcus

Book 3: Hunter and Jasper – A post-transition trans-man who thought he had everything and the angry young man on the edge of his own destruction.

Book 4: Ethram and Adam – A retired Olympian superstar turned iStrike coach and the feisty medic who won’t take no for an answer.

Character Collective Podcast NaNoWriMo Special Edition Episodes

We’re halfway through our NaNoWriMo daily update episodes. Check out the latest episode below. This week’s weekly episode was a crap tonne of fun! Yes, that’s totally an actual term of measurement, haha. Kristy and I did a write-in. For a weekend, we wrote, drank, and ate. And watched some movies and TV because it’s not like we can hang out every day, hahaha. Episode 10 of the podcast consists of four check-ins throughout our write-in. See how we did it (and didn’t do it) and enjoy the drunken escapades, haha.

This Week in the World of Kai Parker

I’m on my sit in Coburg North. It’s great to be back to it. With restrictions on travel lifting in Australia, I’ve already got sits books through to April with a potential sit back up in QLD in May if I can wrangle more sits up that way. It’s been awesome in Melbourne, catching up with by besties, but I do miss that QLD weather. Lol. I was intending to go international in 2021 but that will have to wait a little longer until the world get its shit together again – or something, haha.

Uni is back up and running and I’ve done… some??? Lol. Argh! Hahaha. November is hectic enough with NaNoWriMo but it’s all self-inflicted so I’ll make it work, of course, haha. And then I found a new epic distraction in DAZ3D. After a crash course during our write-in, I went nuts and created “THAT” image from book 2. Lol. Not bad for my first ever DAZ3D creations, thank you very much!

Check out for updates about what’s happening over there.

Thanks for Playing

Don’t forget to check out the Character Collective Podcast and follow our NaNoWriMo journey through November. Also, feel free to leave any questions or feedback in the comments. Let me know what YOU would like me to share as a writer.

Until next time – keep on reading!
