New website and a long overdue blog post http://wp.me/p2migk-3c

"Some of you might be doing NaNoWriMo next month. Others of you are just writing novels because that’s what you do. It’s in your blood. Like flatworms and syphilis.

I’d like to offer myself to be your penmonkey sherpa. Let me guide you and your word-mules up the mountainous ascent, into the whorling flakes and keening winds, where we shall plant our manuscripts into the snow with a delightful crunch, probably only moments before we freeze to death and our frosted corpses are sexually violated by lonely Wampa creatures. At least our dead colonic flesh-stockings will serve as a place to incubate the Wampa’s squealing pups, and we may take some solace that the novels that grew out of this treacherous journey may one day go on to be bestsellers or, at least, help fix a crooked table.

All this month shall be geared toward the act of writing a novel in preparation for you crazy kids who are going to step into the breach and tango with the NaNoWriMo bear.

As such, the purpose of this post is tri-fold."

I'll be calling fans every day throughout the month of October to say thank you for your support! Find out how to get a call from me here!

My nephews often confuse me and my Mom. We look and sound alike to a 1 yr old and a 5 year old, we both live far away, call on the phone and computer and occasionally send presents - ergo we must be the same person in child logic. We are trying to get to talk to them together this week while she is visiting them (me on the phone) and apparently blowing little minds everywhere. Just had the most awesome squeal fest with Sam the younger one, who says "No-oo" just like me! Not sure if this is helping the confusion or not, but I love to get to talk to them!

My day is made - Harry Connolly followed me back on G+ (probably put me in the 'fans to avoid' circle)

Updated my blog for ROW80 today.

This has been a long week, so long in fact that I just realized I was in danger of not posting either of my updates for ROW80. A lot of what happened was boring busy work that just seemed to pile up and needed to be done all at once, so nothing exciting to report, but combined with a summer cold, it just makes the days go slowly.I am still “on track” for my projects, but I am not necessarily generating a large word count – one of the things I realized was that I didn’t really know my characters, and that since I didn’t know them well, the plot I had etched out for them, wasn’t working because I suddenly found that they all were acting quite predictably and honestly I was getting a little bored with the story. If I am bored, that is a very bad sign because it means that anyone who reads it will be bored – and worse, I caught my MC whining.
