Just letting you know that I needed to update my RSS feeds, thank you very much Google for messing with everything.
Православни иконииконихолни масиI know it has been a while since I last posted, and I will do a post soon that updates everything that is going on. I found out that I lagged behind a bit on my wordpress updates and as a result my site was hacked and I was banned by any decent virus protection. It would seem I am more popular than I though, not!!!! I just don’t understand the thought process behind hacking an innocent blog, such as mine. Now that I am working again (YAY!!!!) and my life is getting interesting again, I promise I will be posting more often.
It has been about a year since the last time I wrote anything. The joy I once felt putting pen to paper has been smashed out of me by the depression of real life issues. I have always been an organic writer, the words flowing to me from the ether or my muse, whatever you wish to call it. I have been blocked or the well has run dry. My creativity has left me, or has more likely been stiffled by all the crap in my real life. I know I need to fix this, but as yet I don’t know how. Hopefully you guys out there can help. So I’m asking you all how do you get past issues that affect your pursuit of your dream?
The alternate title of this post was, NaNoWriMo = FAIL!
That what I feel like anyway. I didn’t participate at all, no write-ins, no writing, nothing at all. That in my book = FAIL! I need to make myself get in the habit of writing. I have to, if just to preserve my sanity. I really need to find a local writers group, so I will have deadlines, even if they are self imposed, to share something each time we meet. I really need to get back in the habit. It was truly the only time I’ve been really happy with what I do when not working or caring for my family. Now my hours are spent gaming and socializing on the game. I will still game to relax but I need to have a part of my day spent writing as well. If I ever plan on someday “seeing my name on the spine of a book” I need to carve out the time. This means prioritizing things, I need my life to have more structure than it does. I will work on that and update you on my progress.
Also wanted to say that I have been playing with my recording software and an audio post (not sure I can call it a podcast) will be coming soon. Once I get some of my fiction done and polished I will be putting that here as well.
Take Out the Trash from the album “The Else” by They Might Be Giants
NaNoWriMo starts in 14 hours, and this year I am scared to death. I have no idea where my story is going to start, let alone end and forget the stuff in the middle. I really have no even faint plot idea, except that it is going to be a horror/thriller (which I have never tried before) and involve the supernatural. Guess my head will be trying to figure out what I am going to write about so I can get in at least 2000 words tomorrow. Wish me luck, I think this year I am going to need all the help I can get.
Welcome To My Nightmare from the album “Alice Cooper School’s Out And Other Hits” by Alice Cooper
Hello all, been a while since I posted. Things have been crazy at home and at work and some of it was completely out of control nuts, but that is a story for another day. Today we discuss Vampires and horror stories and NaNoWriMo.
First I have decided to write a horror type story for NaNoWriMo this year. I leaning toward a mystery that involves the supernatural and of course vampires. It will revolve around a news report who is reporting on the crimes as they take place and starts to realize that there is more going on than just a simple bunch of murders/crimes. It will be a departure from my usual writing and I’m really looking forward to it. I need to have an good overview of what is going on, and I’ll be hammering out those details in the next few days.
I’m hoping to get back into the blogging a bit more and I want to keep a detailed journal of how I am doing and the problems and issues I find myself up against during NaNoWriMo this year, and possibly with some audio posts mixed in so don’t forget to check out Thoughts of a Simple Man for those.
