The Two Hundred and Forty-Sixth Post: The One Where Tom Dooley and I Have Something in Common…

Today I go back to work. *sigh*…. I had a rather productive vacation. Got back in contact with someone from my Twitter feed and they were nice enough to promote my book here:

I can now say that I am an internationally known writer…without laughing… and oh, yeah—I’m on Twitter, too: @admiralnowhere

I’m well into the second chapter of the Nano novel, which I am going to work on more when I get home. The Tyro novel is going to star back up as soon as I am done here. Some time with Borderlands 2 and time spent with a good friend on my birthday made for the best vacation in a while. I’m off back to the grind with a renewed sense of purpose (finish something and get it out there). The Chromebook I have is amazing. It’s fast to start, dependable and I actually don’t need an Internet connection for it to work (but it helps). It’s a really good, lightweight laptop. Yes, tablets are the way of the future and I have finally gotten down the Swype keyboard so that I could use my Kindle in a pinch, but I really like the feel of a keyboard. When I go the Galaxy tablet, I bought a Bluetooth keyboard so I can use it at work (pointing back to the renewed purpose) and try to fill those empty six hours I occupy at the desk.

More details about Nanowrimo novel you ask? OK – it’s coming along quickly. I’m finding that getting the minimum is easy now. 2K is a good possibility to hit consistently now that I’m getting to the meat of the story with Danny finding out what’s happening with is body and running into the wraiths. The next big thing will be running into Rhonda and learning more about that. As far as Tyro goes, we’re still in the village, but that’s going to change quickly if I can get to it today. I’ve got so many irons in the fire right now (Tyro, Nano and the First Novel), I hope that I am not spreading myself out too thin. Well with the First Novel, the only thing I am waiting for now is the beta reader to finish making the recommendations and getting them done so I can at least hit the 80K limit so the artwork can fit. After that and the giddy moments of knowing that I have 2 book out there to blabber about, I will put my focus on getting Tyro’s novel finished and maybe getting the Nano novel edited down. After that… I might change direction and work on that old chestnut I/O Error and get that ready for more hard work. It might be good to take a bit of a break from fantasy/romance to get back to horror to cleanse the palate before I work on the second Tyro novel.

There is little else to say here. The vacation is over, but the next one is in 2 and a half weeks and I hope to be in the home stretch for Nano!

Well, I hope y’all have a good day. Thanks for reading and always feel free to leave a comment or a tip.
