I want to publicly thank the many people who have encouraged and supported me in my efforts to update Concussion Is Brain Injury. Your kind words have lifted me up and kept me going. However, I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock and need your help to climb over…

Sorry about the slowness in getting this post out. CZ SMR retraining is going well. We’re retraining my brain at the top centre of it to produce more brainwaves at the 12–15Hz or SMR range. When you’re calm, relaxed and focused, that’s SMR at the CZ.…

So why is WordPress Jetpack sharing my posts only to me on Google +? What setting am I supposed to change to make the sharing public?

Don't think I'm giving away state secrets, but maybe I'll start a new one later.

It's NaNoWriMo time again! This year my novel tentatively titled "Chantie" takes place on Twitter, so naturally I created Twitter accounts for my characters, and their tweets will appear as I get to them in my story writing. Click the link for more info or go to my NaNoWriMo page http://nanowrimo.org/participants/shireenj/novels/chantie And follow along by following me and my characters on Twitter!

At the end of day two, I have written 4,586 words. Plus blog posts, plus tweets, plus a TweetDeck Collection for my intro-to-Chantie tweets, plus... Phew!

Crowdfunding is so risky. You’re seeing if anyone is interested in reading your book before you even put it out, or in the case of my biography/memoir Concussion Is Brain Injury, if anyone is interested in reading an update. Many indie authors are excited…

I’m jumping up and down yet figuratively biting my nails. Today, I’m taking a step I didn’t think I ever would. Today, I’m trying crowdfunding! Oh boy. It’s a big risk because you’re asking people to put their cash towards launching your books out of your…

The prevailing winds at Toronto/Cambridge latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere are [south]westerlies;  but not always, depending on what weather systems are around.

Oh yeah. I did it. I did it! LOL! I just validated my novel and was instantly taken to the NaNoWriMo winner's page where the "Huzzah!" video played. It's simple, short, and amazingly uplifting and rewarding to watch that video of people you don't know personally congratulating you. Whoot!

I made it to 50k and beyond. Even more importantly, I finished the story, and I'm finally feeling that the ending is right. I'll probably tweak the last few lines, maybe add in more dialogue, but the tone of it, the conclusion of it, at long last works for me. And if it works for me, then hopefully it'll work for readers too (although I'm not sure when I'll post it into the searching spotlight of the public, always a nerve-wracking, tricky thing to do).

I wrote the entire novel in Scrivener. It went off in a different direction in the last several chapters from the original radio play I wrote in 2011 during ScriptFrenzy. And for once, I managed to keep updating my outline in the Index Card app as I went (oh, um, I forgot -- gotta update the last two chapters and delete a couple...anywhoo). And I found the Scrivener NaNoWriMo obfuscation compile template so that I could quickly and easily validate my manuscript on the NaNoWriMo website.

I'm now done. I'm finding that hard to believe. Wow. Done. Gotta let that sink in.

I'm feeling rather at loose ends, like, what now? Well, celebrate with some chocolate, of course. And then peruse the winner's page to see what the goodies are. And oh yeah, update my BiblioCrunch annual membership. That is one winner's goody from last year that more than paid itself out to me. Best one ever!

Official word count: 59,345.
