The Lost Story

Many years ago (before there was an Internet), I began a book. Life happened, as it so often does, and I never got past the first three chapters. The book was begun in good old Word Perfect for DOS (if you’re old enough to remember DOS, congratulations; you’re a survivor), and at some point converted…

Life Happens

Well, it appears that health (and other boring necessities) have derailed me, once again. I find myself scrambling to get things done, stressing over time constraints, and finding that the day to day routine has me totally sidelined.

Lost in the Woods?

I earned my 10,000 word badge today. Even thought I’ve been somewhat sidelined by doctor’s appointments, power outages, and Election Day, I’m still on track with NaNoWriMo. It’s been six whole days. Only 24 to go. Will I make it?

NaNo Again

For nine years (well, on and off), I have entered the NaNoWriMo writing game. For those who have yet to be initiated into the online writer’s world, that stands for “National Novel Writing Month.” For many years now, NaNoWriMo.org has challenged writers to draft a novel during the month of November. The goal is 50,000 words.

An Old Friend

It’s the book that refuses to allow me to type “the end.” To be honest, it’s nowhere near ready for that, but it’s been around since 2013. I keep going back to it. I’ve used it for NaNoWriMo twice by pretty much wiping out the original content and starting it from scratch. It has parts…
