Call this my thousandth post…

March 18, 2014

After all, what’s a post or two between friends? 😉 In fact, I’m not quite sure exactly how many posts I’ve put up here at the Kelworth Files, but it’s definitely in the quadruple digits now. So, in another little retrospective, I’ve come up with a semi-random list of ten posts for your regularly scheduled walk down memory lane.

  1. Feedback Swap Update
  2. Nanowrimo Day 23 – jumping from story to story.
  3. Crossover Banner: The Wizards of Roswell
  4. Blog the Cat: Chapter Eight and wrap-up
  5. NanoEdmo Update Week 3 (2011)
  6. C is for Critters (A-Z challenge 2011)
  7. J is for Just a Dream (A-Z challenge 2012, Script Frenzy)
  8. Nanowrimo Spotlight 2012: Rhianna. Also, check out my guest post in Rhianna’s Bag of Holding!
  9. A Day to Rest. (Sabbath thoughts.)
  10. Nanowrimo Spotlight 2013: A Fairytale Heart Races Through November

So, thanks for hanging in with me. Stay tuned for the next thousand posts!

Guest Post: I’m in a Bag of Holding!

January 5, 2013

Hey, everybody. Something really cool that I’ve just been waiting for has arrived – my guest post over on The Geektastics Bag of Holding. Rhianna has interviewed me about Nanowrimo, writer’s block, zombie apocalypses, Firefly, and other really cool things. So come check it out, and then wander around the rest of her shiny new blog!

Post-Nano interview approaching.

December 5, 2012

Well, I’m still in gliding mode, working on archiving the old Stringing Words, trying to figure out how to apply Holly Lisle’s revision program to a short story, and learning the ropes of the new dashboard upgrades. But there’s something new that I wanted to let you know about.

Rhianna was one of the wrimos that I did a spotlight interview with in late October,  and she’s asked me to return the favor now with a post-Nano interview for her blog. She’s sent me the questions and it looks like a fun interview, but it won’t be scheduled until January.

Still – I wanted my friends and followers to be the first to know!

Nanowrimo Spotlight #6: Rhianna

October 25, 2012

Well, let’s see. It’s seven days from November the first, my local Kick-off details have been finalized at last, and I’ve got a new Nano spotlight interview to share with y’all. Say hello to Rhianna

What’s the most unusual part of your writing process?
That I’ve never done anything like this before!  I am completely new at the idea of writing a novel.

Where are your backup files?
I hadn’t thought of that…I guess I should start saving a hard copy somewhere safe just in case.

What advice would you give to all your fellow Wrimos?
Give us complete noobs some love!  Writing may not be our passion, career, or hobby; but we’ve been bitten by the inspiration bug whether it is because of the challenge, prestige of being able to call yourself a novelist, wanting to try something new, or what-have-you!  Sometimes it can feel like an exclusive club where non-serious writers aren’t accepted and that can be sad.  So, open up your arms and send a supportive hug towards a newbie this year!

Sneaky Ninja Question! How much schooling have you gone through?
I have a bachelor degree in animation (focus on hand-drawn) with a minor in graphic design. I went back to school two years ago and got my master’s degree in instructional design with a focus on eLearning design and implementation – which, although a lot to say, means that I make corporate training materials like new hire training, how to use software, and pretty much almost anything else you can think of that you’d have to learn for/at your job!  Often training can get a bad rap for being dry in content and pretty ugly to look at; I have made it my goal to use my arts background to give you something to draw your eye so you want to look at it and has the content jazzy enough to match!

About Me: Howdy! I’m Rhianna! I am in my 30’s and rockin’ out in Colorado.  I have a wonderful husband that keeps me well loved and crazy at the same time.  I am a first time mom to a beautiful girl who also keeps me well loved and insane at the same time.  I like a lot of different geek genres, but I don’t consider myself a die-hard fan of any of them…more a lover of most.  I adore almost everything Disney (especially the Disney theme parks) and read a lot of paranormal romance. I like to follow Doctor Who, The Venture Bros., Project Runway, Top Shot, Hell’s Kitchen, Dexter, and I cried when Firefly went off the air. If you must know, I prefer Star Trek (TNG!) over Star Wars. My favorite movies include Jurassic Park, Aliens, So I Married an Axe Murderer, and Jesus Christ Superstar. I feel that there is a time and a place for every type of music, but I mostly listen to classic rock. I am a self-taught sewer/quilter, beginner photographer, expert couch potato, and a seasoned marksman. Basically, I’m all over the place – but I think that makes me more interesting. I also reserve the right to change my mind.

Thanks for volunteering, and best of luck in your first of many Nanos! You can do it. Oh – and keep an eye on Rhianna’s blog in December – I’m going to be doing a Post-nano wrap-up interview for her.
