Today being Wednesday, take a look at The Ramblings of a Titanium Don for Pathwalking 20.

And if you are not on Facebook or Twitter, you did not see that Spells and Swashbucklers is now available for purchase.  I will be attending the Steampunk World's Fair this weekend, reading my short story, The Vapor Rogues and taking part in other discussions and panels with the authors there.  I have copies of Spells and Swashbucklers for purchase as well.

And with the story, I am presenting the extended world on The Vapor Rogues website. 

Many cool things happening!!

Yes, still going strong.

Very, very happy with this story. 

Nearly done reading Aleph.  I will have to read more of Coelho's works.

And on a sad note - RIP Anne McCaffery.  I very much enjoyed reading your Dragonriders books.  Your contribution to sci-fi and fantasy will not be forgotten.

I have developed a DEEP respect for author Paulo Coehlo.  I have read a couple of his books (The Alchemist, Warrior of the Light) follow his blog, follow him on Twitter, and he has amazing insights.

Today he posted a challenge to create a story in 6 words.  A writing challenge I CANNOT pass up.  My story:

Life is brighter than the sun

This short moment of creativity his tremendously brightened a slow moving, overly-busy work day.  And its a message I can take to heart. 

I had to share.

Not terribly exciting, but feel free to check it out:

Shades of Mediocrity continues apace.  I need to up my word-count some, but I believe I can still make it.
fencerm2: (NaNo 2008)
During my mom's visit over the past several days, not nearly enough writing had occurred.

I do think, however, I may have made up for this somewhat tonight.

I know several of you have expressed an interest in reading Shades of Mediocrity, as well as my past NaNo stories.  I am seriously considering creating a new website (I see a domain acquisition in my future) to put up work NOT related to The Source Chronicles.

Ok, it is late, I think sleep is in order.  I believe that this year's NaNoWriMo project is coming along rather nicely.

For those playing along at home:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter

I am moving right along on this.

Ok, for those who asked:

Shades of Mediocrity takes place ten years in the future.  Nine states of the Northeast have seceded from the Union, and become the Northeastern American States.  Recognized by nations across the world, but certainly not by the US President, a man named Halpern, representative of the Fundamentalist party (a result of the 2010 split of the Republicans, forming the Conservative and Fundamentalist parties in the process), we meet Marcus Noble, an average citizen living in the new nation.  As the story opens, we learn that California, Oregon and Washington will be voting to secede as well, becoming the Pacific Coast Coalition.  Marcus witnesses a man get gunned down on the Delaware River, and winds up with a briefcase - a briefcase with all kinds of plans from the US Government.

Marcus soon learns that he has not come by this briefcase by chance - he is, in fact, a sleeper agent of the Northeaster Security Bureau, the NAS's equivalent of both the CIA and FBI.  No longer the simple administrative assistant he believed he was, Marcus has to unlock the clues that will reveal President Halpern's reaction to the probable secession of the Pacific coast states, and he has to find a way to stop him from committing atrocities that will rip the already divided continent apart beyond everyone's worst fears.

At least, that's where I think I'm going with this.

More to follow as I write it!

Yesterday went to Warrior's Nadaam in Putnam County, NY.  A nice, relaxing, low key event.  I even arched, instead of fencing.  Not that there WAS any fencing, but I did bring the appropriate gear.[Poll #1075106]

I did it!

Last week I didn't think I would make it - but I even left room to spare:

50,876 / 50,000

And this is what they present to you when you finish:

You've Won!

Dear Novelist, 
You did it. 
Despite everything else going on in your busy life, you managed to pull off the creative coup of writing a 50,000-word novel in just one month. 
When the going got tough, you got typing, and in four weeks, you built vast worlds and set them in motion. You created characters; quirky, interesting, passionate souls with lives and loves and ambitions as great as yours. You stuck it out through the notoriously difficult middle stretch, and pressed onward as 80% of your fellow writers dropped out around you. 

And now look at you: A NaNoWriMo winner. And the owner of a brand-new, potential-filled manuscript. It's an amazing accomplishment, and we're proud to have had you writing with

I am relieved to be done with it.  This was an intense project.  And yes, I will find some way to share it.  Maybe I will add it to The Source Chronicles.

It should probably be noted that today is the 7th anniversary of my accident.  Seven years ago today every aspect of my being was changed.  Wow.  I would post more on this, but I just spent a month reliving much of it already. 

Lastly, before I go to work:

Happy Birthday [profile] unicornpearlz!
