NaNoWriMo – Done but not Dusted

In October I sensed much excitement in writer’s circles about the approaching National Novel Writing Month. I felt it was way out of my league. I even expressed my respect for anyone game enough to attempt it. It seemed a mammoth task to me. Congratulations to anyone who attempted it and to those who finished. You are all brilliantly dedicated. Continue reading

Six Sentence Sunday #18

6 Sentence Sunday LogoHello again,

Thanks for reading last week. Giving 6 Sunday a miss this week. Probably next week too. Too much on and NaNoWriMo is taking over my life. Slightly obsessed about not bombing out in the 40K range. I aim to be back in December.

Six Sentence Sunday #17

6 Sentence Sunday LogoHello again,

Thanks for reading last week and for the great feedback. This week we continue straight after last week’s 6 where Dominic watched his pregnant fiancée being thrown out of a plane. Last week’s BS warning still applies! Enjoy!

Dominic stood, open mouthed, listening to her screams fading away. This could not be real. Then with a sudden realisation that his unborn child and its mother’s life were in his hands he took two long steps for the door and dove out head first. Dominic could vaguely hear Maxwell’s fading voice calling out something about real extreme programming as he spotted Natalia below him, screaming like nothing he’d ever heard before.

Dominic, frozen with fear, clutched the notebook to his chest like a life buoy as he fell towards the earth. After a few seconds he came back to reality and realised he had to get closer to her and figure out how to program the computer to release both parachutes before they hit the ground.

Six Sentence Sunday #16

6 Sentence Sunday LogoHello again,

Thanks for reading last week and for the feedback. This week we follow on from last week’s opening paragraph of Extreme Programming. We jump forward a bit. Warning: this story has a James Bond style BS factor.

Dominic is surprised to find Natalia, his pregnant fiancée, already seated in the plane. He has just been told his task is to program his computer to remotely open Natalia’s USB parachute via the WiFi connection.

“Great!”, Mr. Maxwell smiled. He handed the other laptop to Dominic. “Oh, by the way, the WiFi only works up to a hundred metres so stay close.” He connected Natalia’s laptop to her USB parachute and gave the computer to her. He slid the door open, said, “Hold it tight, Sweetheart, time to go!” Then to Dominic’s horror, the two buffoons took her by the arms and threw her out of the plane!
