Well. As of this moment, I am now at 51108 words for NaNoWriMo. But as I have said before, NaNo is worthless to me unless I can get complete projects done. At the moment I have complete my daughters story, ‘The Adventures of Evana Sweetland.’ And I have finished Book 3 of my sons ‘Space Courier’ story. But my son’s story isn’t finished. It still needs the last book. Originally we planned to write the story in 5 parts. But as I wrote Book 3, I realized that I had included pieces that I was planning on for book 4. So now, I have gotten rid of book 4, put the parts into either book 3 or book 5 and then called book 5, book 4. Basically, Space Courier is going to be four books. And I am not done NaNoWriMo. I have ten days to write 22500 to 25000 words for this next book. That means that I must write
So this year has gone off with a bang. First I’d like to apologize for the lack of blog posts. I have been distracted by NaNo. It happens. For the first bit, I was writing 3k to 4k words a day. I was on track with my double NaNo goals. Then life happens. And it happens. One day you are going strong, then the next you have fallen behind. All you can do is to try and catch up when you can. We had ordered some Ikea beds for the kids, and it took 3 hours to build them. Each. Plus I had to go through my storage bin and find some boxes. It’s all delays. Ie. Life. And it happens. It is not a bad thing. Cause life does that. No need to get anxious or frustrated by it. And if it weren’t NaNo, there would be no need to try and catch up. It is best not to.
Well. NaNo is upon us, and that small statement has reminded me of a little meme. Well, I am not sure that is a meme, but a twitter post. But no matter. This is very true. For those that don’t know, Inktober is when the artist draws a new ink drawing each day for a month. The picture can be as complicated as they want. That means that Inktober can be quiet easy. For those that can draw at least. NaNo, however, is fifty thousand words in thirty days. That is huge. That can be challenging for some people. Me, I have gotten off to a good start. It is the end of Day 2, and I am supposed to be at 3333 words. I am at 8000 words. How am I doing that you ask? Well, I am glad that you did. First is that I type fast. I don’t type properly, but I do my own version of a
It is currently 9:30pm on Oct 31, 2017. In no time at all, I will be starting the chaos of
So things have changed for me and my family. But first I would like to apologize for the months of
I know that it has been a bit and my posts have dropped off. I apologize for that. My day job has gone nuts and I have spent a couple weeks doing 10 hr days. The pay will be great. After the greedy governments takes there cut. Anyways. That has taken a lot of time from my writing and other thing time. I have pushed some things aside so that I have time to think. I am only working on one writing project a day at the moment. The others will be there once I get more time. I am also wanting to work on the house more. I need to get it done. I am tired of living in reno-land. It is not pretty and there is no cookies. I was promised cookies. Anyways. The family is going good. My 5 yr old girl is singing and dancing to everything. We have to be careful to what we put
So I am a dad. More specifically, I am a father of two. I have a six year old boy named [REDACTED] and a five year old girl named [REDACTED]. My kids are great. I am not sure how it happened, but these kids are nothing like I was as a child. I was the child playing in the mud, ALL the time. I didn’t want to be inside the classroom, I wanted to be outside playing. I had multiple run ins with the Special Needs Teacher because they thought that I had a learning disability. It was just that I didn’t care, I knew the stuff, and I passed all the tests that they threw at me. What can I say… I wanted to be outside. My kids, however, love learning. They love doing things that expand their minds. My son, [REDACTED], loves science, math, and reading. He plays the piano and he practices for a couple hours a
