Gene R. Westfall - my hero
I don't post really personal stuff very often.  But I've kept a journal on and off for nearly 30 years, and here is an entry about a man that I've admired for most of my life.  He died today. March 15, 2015 Grandpa isn’t doing well.  The social worker at th...

NaNoWriMo - Yeah, about that....
Ok, so I didn't get to 50,000.  Didn't even get to 15,000.  I have no excuses.  I fell victim to the enemy of writers everywhere - or maybe only my enemy - apathy. I got off to a great start - but life gets in the way, as it has a tendency to do.  And once ...

NaNoWriMo - Day Eleven
Well, I'm officially WAY behind on this year's novel.  If I were on track, I'd be at around 18K words, and I have just about half of that. But, I'm not willing to concede defeat just yet.  Work stuff, cat stuff, health stuff not withstanding, there is still...

NaNoWriMo - Day 5
Today's a wash.  I knew it would be.  EDJ (that's Evil Day Job, if you didn't know) ran me ragged with new equipment installs today, so I'm taking a non-NaNo evening.  I'll have plenty of time this weekend to catch up.

NaNoWriMo - Day Four
Only about a thousand words today - but considering the miserable day I've had, I'm happy just to make a little progress. I don't like to get super personal on such a public platform, so all I'll say is that if any of you have ever lost a pet unexpectedly, ...

NaNoWriMo - Day Three
Hit the first milestone today - 5000 words down, 45000 to go.  I usually get a lot more done on the weekends, so as long as I can get my minimum -1667 - on the weekdays, I don't see any trouble finishing on time. One of my favorite memories of the one novel...

NaNoWriMo - Day Two
Day two has started out better.  Not completely over the sinus thing, but I feel a little more human today. Got three ebooks updated yesterday, and I'm up to about 2200 words on NaNo.  I'll have to chalk up another thousand today to get back on schedule, bu...

NaNoWriMo - Day One
Day One of this year's challenge was a non starter.  Spend the day updating covers and descriptions on a few of my Amazon ebooks.  The plan was to work on NaNo in the evening.  But around sunset, I had a sudden, unwelcome relapse of the cold/sinus/upper res...

And we're back....
There's no better decision than an ill advised and poorly thought out decision.  So here's mine.... For the first time in nearly ten years, I'll be participating in National Novel Writing Month .  50,000 words in 30 days - a shortish novel, but a novel none...
