The Cold, Harsh Winter

[Author's note: Please pay no attention to the title of this blog. It's simply the first thing that came to mind.]

It's a harsh, cold winter. That's more like it. It has much more of a ring to it.

Now that you've been thoroughly confused, I welcome you the monthly update of my writing endeavors. It has been an up and down month, that's for sure, but I did get a few things accomplished and submitted, so that's always a plus.

First of all, let's talk about National Novel Writing Month. To read more about that, please refer to my blog post on November 1st. It explains a little bit. Basically, I had a goal to write an entire 50,000 word novel in one month. To cut to the chase, that did not happen. I have plenty of excuses, but here are the ones I feel like using: I got sick a few weeks ago and it was my birthday. The same thing happened last year (the birthday part) and I did not quite achieve what I set out to do. I happened to get close to 230…

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Maury has tied Oprah in the ratings!

This should be on the front page news. The Queen of daytime is being dethroned by the King of Paternity Tests. Maury better watch out. This reminds me of another time when another daytime talk show host tried to take on Oprah. Please read and enjoy!

*Author's note: This is essentially a re-post of a blog I wrote for another website in 2005. I may have changed some things. Not to protect the innocent, but because chances are I spelled some stuff wrong the first time.

ONE NIGHT ONLY

THE MATCH EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR

OPRAH VS GOD VS TONY DANZA

That's right folks, after all the months of debate and name calling, these three heavyweights are finally taking their jabber to the ring. It all started months ago, when after a barrage of questions from Oprah, God threw off his microphone and stormed off of Oprah's Chicago set. Even after his exit, Oprah continued to tear into God about what a lousy father he had been by leaving his poor w…

National Novel Writing Month

Well, it's that time of year again. Time for me to set about writing an entire novel in one month. The only difference is, that this year, I've decided to continue to the novel I started last year during this event. What does that mean to you, valued reader? Well, I'm glad that you asked.

First off, it means I may not update this blog for the month of November. While I will try, there are no guarantees. Of course, the blogs have been few and far between lately, so it's not like I've exactly been on top of it.

Secondly, I will be posting the chapters on my other blog on this site: Palm trees and paradise. I will post a link at the bottom of this page or you can just click on my profile picture and access it from there.

The first ten chapters that I write are a re-hashing from last year, so feel free to skip those if you read them last year. If not, or even if you did, please read and enjoy.

All feedback is appreciated.

Thank You.
