Yes, I know that I vowed to do NaBloMoPo and a daily post, yet here I am three days late with a entry.
You should really read this before you go any further.
I am beginning to think that this is what a Frontal Lobotomy feels like. I can’t concentrate, create or focus on one single thing. I found myself too often today staring off into space without comprehending anything going on around me. And before you say anything, I know that I have a habit of staring off into space, but that is usually when I am writing and poking at a scene and it is for a purpose. But the amount of snot I am hoarding inside my skull right now is making it hard to be articulate. I vowed in the spirit of writing to participate in NaBloPoMo, though, so here I am trying to keep up with my promise.
No, David Draiman, I do not want to get down, get down with the sickness.
I just want to thank everyone for being patient as I get my bearings and the blog setup. It seems that every time I think I have it figured out, there is a new way to optimize or format or whatever to make this all bright and shiny. And I’m not a big fan of bright and shiny. So thank you for reading, and don’t mind the mess.
I originally planned for this post to be released last night on Halloween, but minions and a sugar-induced coma (mine, not the minions) blew that right out the window. So today is November 1st, 2013 and marks the beginning of the annual “thirty days of literary abandonment” known as NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month for those who are not familiar with this cruel punishment. You have 30 days to write a 50,000 word novel of original origin, meaning not the half-baked story you tossed aside months ago or the almost completed novel that you have been slaving over. It has to be a new story, never told before by you, the writer.
I came across this nice little nugget here while pursuing writing references on Tumblr, and I had to share it here for those about to embark on their month-long journey into madness that is NaNoWriMo. It is a very valuable reference and I hope it helps out.
So here I am, back again in the blogosphere spouting off nonsense to the meager crowd of my friends & family who are willing to read something I’ve created. As you can see from the previous post, it has been a long time since I’ve graced these pages with my words and no, I still have yet to figure out WordPress. Fortunately for me I have a group of highly intelligent friends and family who ARE familiar with WordPress that can decipher it for me.
Figuring out this crazy WordPress thingy.
Due to Mini Me having a cold (ack! and two days before she starts Kindergarten, no less), I sent Rich and his son Ryan to represent us at the Cure for the Run so I could stay home and pamper her.
Both guys had a great time, and needless to say it was a success! SomaCow pulled in over THREE thousand dollars for the homeless. There was even a performance by Wes Heath !
You can watch a video Orlando Event TV made of the event here. Congratulations to SomaCow for putting together this awesome event, and I hope next year I will be able to attend!
