This blog has fallen by the way a bit. I've been spending an inordinate amount of time on the 360 blog. It is easier to post where you know people are reading! And I like my friends list there.
I've been working on my novel for fun "Hidden in the Mist". It is now over 38,000 words! I thought it would have died a painful death long ago. But I have decided to follow it to the end.I have closed it to the public and it is only by invitation now. I am considering doing my next project the same way. This is a good way to get input on my draft. Other eyes see what I miss!
I am also gearing up for the National November Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). This is where you write a novel of 50,000 in 30 days. The only prize is the satisfaction of doing it. I tried last year and got to about 35,000 words. I was frustrated I didn't make it but I am looking forward to trying again. I did get a good start to a new story so even though I didn't reach the stated goal, I did reach a goal of sorts.
I will have a writing buddy this year, I think. Chris from my 360 blog says she wants to try it. It will be nice to have someone to comiserate with! If you are into personal challenges, please take a look at the the NaNoWriMo site.
Michael had an MRI and EEG this past Tuesday. If you check the 360 blog you will find a post explaing why this occurred. He had some kind of seizure a few weeks ago and we don't exactly know what caused it or if it will happen again. The test this week looked ok they said but they want another in 3 months.
I'm not closing this blog down. I just haven't had the time to do two at once. There are still things I like about it but it needs a few tweeks. I'd like to put up my own wall paper but don't know how.
