The Two Hundred and Forty-Seventh Post: The One Where Progress Is Made!

One of the few times you will hear this and not shrink away! I’ve gotten the novel back from one of my beta readers and there are a lot of changes that need to be made, but I can work on those during the weekend since I still have Nanowrimo and Tyro’s novel to work on during the weekdays (still maintaining the pace to finish the Nanowrimo novel a few days before the end of the month). I’m a little bleary eyed right now, but I am going to perk up with some caffeine in a few minutes. Working double duty is hard, but if I can keep it up for the duration of the month and finish something then I will be sitting very pretty as far as getting stuff to print. I am married to the goal of getting three novels finished in 2014 and getting at least two of them printed in that same year. Slowly, I am tottering towards getting out of my current predicament. Right now, I just need to focus on getting one thing: finishing a novel.

Speaking of novels, I am getting to the next good scene in the Nanowrimo novel in which Danny and Rhonda meet. Don’t know how that’s going to happen – should I make it light hearted or a bit more serious? Well, either way there’s going to be a dead horse involved. I’ll have to think about that. I am trying to work on another project a work which I am calling Eat me, Drink Me and it’s about the feeder fetish. I don’t know where these ideas come from, but I am going to work on them all. My philosophy with this is pretty standard and can be summed up with the notion of the golden BB. I just need that one novel to get me going, so until that one hits – I’m gonna keep throwing out everything but the kitchen sink. I need my kitchen sink because where else am I going to do the dishes? If I did dishes… I kid. I do some dishes. Cups, saucers and the occasional cooking utensil on the rare times I do cook. What is the key to success for all of you writers out there? Two words: paper plates.

Pro tip: if you’re slow to wake up like I am, don’t put on ambient music like Brian Eno. I almost slipped into a coma listening to him. I think I’ll buy the album (was listening to it on my YouTube channel) and have it on standby if I am suffering from insomnia. What’s more my steam (ha-ha) as I am finding out is bands like Abney Park and Dr. Steel – which I should break down and buy one of their albums soon.

Oh! Almost Human premiers next week on FOX. I am a bit of a Karl Urban fan, so I am looking forward to this. I also hope this won’t get in the way of any future Dredd movies… if there are going to be any. Let’s face it, Urban was far better than Stallone. Seriously. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, go buy it on iTunes or Netflix and watch it in HD. It’s well worth it.

Well, I need to get to the Tyro novel and get our main character out of the village. As always, feel free to leave a comment. I’ll answer them as long as they’re not spam (mmm…Spam…).
