Time Has Come Today

In a few hours Namowrimo will begin. In fact in a few places it might have already started, like in Australia and Asia. Hmm, I wonder if the Nano word count computer can read all the Asian ideographs that are used in Asian writing. What about Sanskrit or Arabic? I don’t know. I guess it […]

Three Days To Go

Nanaowrimo is just three days away. I have everything ready for the big write-off: I got my idea, my outline and my plan of action for the first day. I plan to start at 12 midnight and write for only a short while. Then later on in the morning really start to work on the […]

A Day In the Life…

I thought today I tell you something of what I’m doing today and some of my reactions to them. This won’t be a blow- by -blow account; after all how exciting is a bathroom break? However, there may be other things that might be interesting. So here goes: Right now I just got up at […]

Serial Update

With seven days to go before Nanowrimo kicks off, I’ve been busy organizing, and getting ready for the big write. I got my notes organized as well as my outline. I’ve already checked out my novel writing software, Z-WRITE, which seems to work well in keeping my notes and research only a click away. That […]

Crazy Week

This past week is one week I think I will remember for a while. If nothing else, it will be for the up and down emotions that I went through as the week progressed. This past week I was in a sense, laid off from my job. I say it that way because the job […]

Interesting Day

Yesterday was an interesting day. Besides all the usual mundane things that had to be done, I had to spend some time finding out what happened to an article about my last book that was to be printed in our local paper, Northwest Indiana Times. The gal who is writing the article, Jane Ammeson was […]

That Time of the Season

I took a walk this weekend while going to the bank and checking out my big bucks (?). I thought that with the place so short a distance from my house, a walk would be a great time to get some well-needed exercise in. On the way back from the bank I saw a couple […]

The Last Cub Watch, 2007

The weather finally turned cooler in the Midwest this week. Temps are more like fall instead of summer. I went out today with a sweater and light gloves when I took my walk. So, I guess it’s time to put a wrap on the Chicago Cubs baseball season. As you all know, the Cubs were […]

Taking A Stand Lightly

I had an interesting weekend, this past one. I worked this weekend, which was pretty boring. Usually on evenings on weekends, it’s usually a baby-sitting job. Just answering the phone and door and stocking supplies that was left over the from Friday night. So, no big deal here. I also had a chance to use […]


Seems like I spelled Keith Olbermann’s name wrong in my blog of a couple of days ago. It’s bad enough to be criticized by everyone, but have your name misspelled by an unknown blogger? Well, that’s what I am, an unknown blogger that can’t spell. So forgive me everyone. There are days that I shouldn’t […]
