Writing Round-Up

Well, it’s New Year’s Eve and while I’d love to do a retrospective ‘Year that Was…’ I ain’t gonna. At least, not yet. In the meantime, I’m all giddy about some writing stuff. First and foremost…

GOODHALO II – Is done! It’s done, done, done! Well, at least the first draft anyway. It’s length shattered any previous records held by …

Unattainable Goal?

What it is, Tappers. What. It. Is.

So, I’m trying to set myself a goal for writing the much anticipated (well, I’M anticipating it!) next book in the GOODHALO series. And here is/are the catch(es):

1. I’m trying to get it drafted by the end of September.
2. I think it’s going to be 100,000 words or so.
3. I …

Egg Drop Soup & Other Delights

Hey, it’s not like I don’t love you Blogger (you too, Tappers!) but I’ve just been a busy, busy boy.

So busy. Boy.

Let’s sit down for a spell and catch up a bit, why don’t we? Yeah, you can sit there on the futon. Just go ahead and move those Hot Wheels cars over to the side. That’s fine. …

Landmarks, Goals, Progress & 100 Pages

So, I hit kind of a big landmark last night and I’m pretty excited about it.

Despite the urging from my Nintendo Wii to go out and play Super Mario Galaxy for an extra hour, I pushed through and hit the 100 page point on my editing/red-penning of GOODHALO. While that might seem like nothing to most (or all) of …

Anna 2.0 Meter

Not that anyone is paying that close of attention, but my little meter for the progress on Anna 2.0 is off. The numbers are right and I think my math is pretty close, but they’ve taken down the site that gives me that cool little read-out because of the impending NaNoWriMo thingy happening in a couple of days.

So…yeah. 57,000+ …

Good Fortune

After taking my little fella to his gym class tonight, we stopped at a nearby Chinese buffet for some mouth-watering deliciousness. We usually go there if we don’t want to cook and are so hungry we’re dizzy. After eating, we got some fortune cookies. Laura laughed at how dumb her’s was.

Something about: If you want to fish, you need …

Weekend Round-Up

So, there’s another weekend for the books. It seemed like it lasted longer than most weekends, so that’s kind of a cool thing. Here’s some savory nuggets to chew n’ enjoy.

Birthday – Yep, turned 35 on the 19th, just like I’d planned. It’s so weird to me to be able to be heading toward 40. Crazy, crazy. I picked …

You know, as much as I love October and think this is the best time of the year, I’m really anxious for this October to be over.

– The weather has been crap. I want a crisp, brisk, autumn. Instead, it’s rained like all but 6 days this month. I’m usually not affected by weather (I live in Minnesota, after …

I wrote 3,495 words tonight.

That’s like some kind of record for me, I think. Especially since I started around 9:40-ish and got distracted and stuff.

My head hurts.

Good night.…
