Working on Nano, Taking charge

I’ve been working on Nanowrimo this month as I get ready for the writing to take place starting on November 1st. I got the planning out-of-the-way, that is, the outline and a short synopsis of the story. I’ve written a short description of the main characters and some background. I try to let things be […]

A Long Quiet Summer

If you noticed, I tok the summer off from doing a large amout of writing. It was the first time in nearly 4 years that I took a break. Not that I wasn’t busy. It was just that doing writing, was not hight on my list of things to do this summer. I had the […]

Catching Up

Just thought I’d catch up with all of you on some things since I’ve been busy lately. Some of it is serious some not so serious. Been watching thr e immigration battle in Arizona. I believe that the law has a lot of unintendeed problems for it, like: whaere are you going to put all […]

What is Happening Lately

I have been busy lately, partly writing a couple of short stories while they were still fresh in my mind. I got a little more enthused about writing short stories since I had a couple accepted for IUN’s Literary Magazine coming out in May. Besides, I sometimes enjoy the idea of having an idea carry […]

Halloween Report

I’ve been among other things, getting ready for Halloween. We usually get around 100 kids on Halloween, being that our house is in the middle of the block. Like the six years, I’ll be handing out the candy and listening to the kids cry “trick or Treat!” It’s usually fun and I enjoy the little […]

Honking: The Alternative to Tweeting

These days, people are always tweeting on the Internet. I guess it just about having a short attention span. No one can seem to write   thoughts more than 140 characters. They are tweeting this and tweeting that. So much so that anyone who has a long thought can not get a word in edge-wise. I […]

A Tough Month

Wondering what I’ve been up to lately? I haven’t blogged for a two or three weeks as I’ve been busy plugging holes in the dyke that makes up my life. First, I was in a car accident about three weeks ago. No one was hurt, but my car was, I had my front end crunched […]
