Beware: this NaNo excerpt post contains narrative nudity, discussion of violence, dumb jokes, urine, and strong language. Cue cheesy awesome full moon picture:

baby, I'm howling for you. )

So I'm not going to set up a NaNo filter yet, because I don't know that I'm really going to make that many posts about it and it seems silly to set up a filter and never use it, so. If this handy introductory post catches your interest, and you say to yourself, "Self, I'd really quite enjoy the occasional post about the wacky adventures of these wacky werewolf chaps," then please let me know and I will add you to the filter that does not yet exist. If you are one of those GODDAMMIT, NOT ANOTHER NANO POST people, please let me know and I will set up a filter immediately, for fear of your mighty wrath.

So the big lesson I'm trying to learn from NaNo this year is to loosen up on my obsessive self-editing death grip as I write, which means I have to deliberately let myself be messy, which means my head will probably explode by the end of the first week. Even this summary is hard for me to post, because the writing is flatter and more utilitarian than I would usually share with you guys, but - okay, shutting up and getting to the point now. This is a rough summary of Phases, a contemporary-set novel about werewolves, fairy tales, and the world through a monster's eyes. Enjoy.

Or not. Whichever.

Title: A History of Cartography

Rating: PG for mild language.

Warnings: None.

Notes: This is the first chapter of the pseudo-novel that I'm working on for my pseudo-novel writing class. For lack of a better explanation, let's say that it's something like The Royal Tenenbaums + Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher + something else that's absolutely nothing like either of those things. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet.

Title: The Third Woe Comes Quickly

Rating: Teen for language and violent imagery.

Warnings: Dark. Very.

Notes: This is an old story, one that long predates any of my Doctor Who fic. I've been cleaning it up, trying to work myself into an original fiction sort of mode, and I thought I might share now that it's readable. Not recommended for those who avoid themes of suicide, mental illness, or teenage boys. Oh dear. Apocalypses.
