Explaining Myself

I’ve got to get this down so I can stop thinking about it. I’ve spent entirely too much brain time on it already.

So, some women in town are angry with me. I can get along with almost anyone, so naturally, this is frustrating. If you read this, know that you’re only getting my side of things. They can be angry; I don’t care. Except I do.

Here’s the situation. If you don’t know me, I’m a large guy. I’m only 5’ 10”, but I’ve got about a 54” chest and a 50” waist. I always feel like the proverbial bull in a china shop when I’m in public. I’m very conscious about the amount of space I take up.

Renewed Focus

I’ve completed rough drafts on two novels now. I’m three-quarters through the first draft of a biography and have a good start on a short story and a novella. As a writer trying to get published, I’m pretty sure that I could be said to be doing it wrong.

Ultimately, being published is my goal. My priority, though, is to be a good (or at least better) writer. That’s the main reason that I’ve been working on so many diverse projects.

I think it’s now time to focus.

Notes from the Shower

I don’t know about you, but I get some interesting ideas in the shower. This is what I was thinking about this morning.

We have senses that tell us about our environment. Current theories suggest that these evolved over time and were passed on because they gave the organisms that possessed them an advantage over those that didn’t.

Thoughts from the Drive Home

Several years ago, I was driving a young lady to an appointment. She and I were friends. Or friendly co-workers. Ex-co-workers at that point, I think.

At any rate, as we were nearing our destination, she informed me that before we got there, we needed to find a “bippy boppy.”



Back to NaNoWriMo

I’m ready this time.

I tried doing NaNoWriMo last year but only got a little bit in and crumbled under the weight. It was like entering a marathon without training.

This year, I’m ready. I’ve been writing every day since June 1. I started with only 250 words per day. Now I’m up to 450. I usually write well over my goal, but not always. I never write less. I’ve written almost 90,000 words since I started.
