As the veil thins for the night...

Not a big post today, getting ready for the start of NaNoWriMo tomorrow. For now, since it's Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain, etc.. here are a couple of poems I've written about this wonderful season.

Character Development

Well  I'm seven days away from taking on the biggest challenge of my writing skills to date. As I posted before, National Novel Writing Month starts on November 1st, and I'm gonna do my damnedest to write my 50,000 words. That works out to 1667 words a day roughly, I mean I can write, I've proven that here on my blog more than once, but 50,000 words in one month... wow. I've never thought of trying that, I've never dreamed of thinking of trying that, it's insane. Well.. so am I, or so people have told me over the years, so onward and upward.

I have a doppelganger...

There is a theory that everyone has a twin somewhere in the world, a doppelganger if you will. Someone who walks, talks and sounds just like you. Now for most, this person could be anywhere in the world, after all it's a pretty big place and there is room enough on the planet for two people to look alike, take twins for example. But this isn't a theory about twins, this is a completely different person who looks just like you. In my case it seems, this double is walking around St. John's.

NaNoWriMo Madness begins

So it's almost time for NaNoWriMo to start. If you haven't seen it, check it out. It's a project for National Novel Writing Month that starts on November 1st. The concept is simple, it's a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.

Weekend Geekery, Epilogue

Just got home from Atlanti-CON ( and all I can say is "Wow! What a weekend!"

Seriously, I love being  a nerd. I love the people I've met when attending and working for the conventions here in Newfoundland. Nerds are the most awesome group of people to associate with, there's almost a telepathic bond when they congregate where they instantly understand each other and all the geeky/nerdy/obscure/pop-culture references they make. There's no other social group like it anywhere.
