Why am I Sick? (And a Give away)

I am still sick. It’s been almost a month. At this point it’s a light cough and heavy congestion on the right side of my head. I have reached the point that now and then my ear clears out, and it feels like someone… Continue Reading “Why am I Sick? (And a Give away)”

NaNo D24: Towels

I could have made it. Really. This isn’t blowing smoke. Story stalled. I could keep forcing it. I’m good at that. But I have another story which requires editing. I bought a domain name for it. Since it will be at least six months… Continue Reading “NaNo D24: Towels”

NaNo D5: Does quantity really mean a lack of quality?

Last night I was telling my friend I would have to go three days without writing. Thursday through Saturday will be a wash. He said in the spirit of it, couldn’t I just tack on three days at the end, and I told him… Continue Reading “NaNo D5: Does quantity really mean a lack of quality?”

NaNo D1: First Sentence

November is the best month of the year. It starts with Reformation Day on October 31. It moves into the frantic 50,000 word turmoil of NaNoWriMo. If you’re keeping track, it started today. This year I have a men’s church leadership retreat in beautiful… Continue Reading “NaNo D1: First Sentence”

NaNoWriMo approaches

I hate weddings. They make me dour and for the next week I’m in a melancholy mood. The reception puts me on edge and gives me anxiety. Sure I can have fun, but most the time I feel sick. Every other weekend there has… Continue Reading “NaNoWriMo approaches”

My next novel and gearing up for NaNo

Editing was going well until I was introduced to Diablo III. The game where you can die and still laugh about it. Even on hardcore mode. Died three times last night. Game is a lot of fun, and I’ve gotten a few ideas off it.… Continue Reading “My next novel and gearing up for NaNo”

Camp NaNo

I’m taking my time on my edits for my book. I’m outlining things, writing short stories for support, and just generally truly putting my best foot forward like I could not seem to do in Kelst and Ayne. I feel good. I still haven’t… Continue Reading “Camp NaNo”

Post Coital with NaNoWriMo

I wish I had a cigarette for this. Or that I smoked. Maybe I’ll bust out the pipe. The plan has been to write K&A. Go scene by scene, destroying it, but every time I look at the computer, I get that bliss. You know,… Continue Reading “Post Coital with NaNoWriMo”

Thankful

It’s been a long year. There have been incredibly painful and joyful moments. These are a few of the major things I’m thankful for in the past year. God, Christ, and a loneliness and hurt that allowed me a closer relationship and stronger faith.… Continue Reading “Thankful”

NaNoWriMo – Victory

  You’re seeing that right. I’ve never won. I’ve never seen beyond the pearly gate. Now I have. It’s marvelous. My final word count, thanks to some trite dialogue when I hit 49,999 and couldn’t think of what to write, is 50,086 words. I… Continue Reading “NaNoWriMo – Victory”
