the long overdue

I haven’t posted much of anything lately. This is my current perpetual life update.

I’ve given up on the novel for NaNoWriMo. That happened about a week or so ago. I know the month isn’t over, but I guarantee that I’m not going to hit the goal nor will I struggle to try.

I’ve registered for my first semester of nursing classes that I have been waiting a couple years to take.

The Crown is my Cheers.

Work is mostly the same ol’ same. I get holiday pay coming up this Thursday and Friday. w00t! for that.

I spend most of my time before work staying up all nite watching DVDs or surfing the information superhighway then waking up late the next day ’cause I was trapped in the dreamworld.

My dreams (which seem to occur daily) have been maintaining an intense state where I’m really sucked into them and wake up thinking they’re real and glad they’re not.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, and I’m looking forward to cooking (with Mare) for the family.

I really will try to update more often. I honestly don’t have much to say right now ’cause things have been the same for some time, and I’m perfectly happy with that.

I’m reading an excellent book right now called Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud.

Sooner or later, I plan on jumping back into the fun of minimalist illustration execution.

There’s a writer cooped up in his batcave right now that’s waiting for the right moment to resurface and actually be productive with his time, but we’ll give him all the time he needs ’cause it’s the holiday season and if he chooses not to get on the writing, then he’ll just be left behind. Boo-hoo is right.

I failed at writing 50k worth of a novel in a month, but does that make me want to throw in the towel? Absolutely not. I’m not a quitter. I’m not a failure. I persist even when complete success hasn’t or possibly never will be met. That doesn’t stop me and shouldn’t stop you. Your calling exists; maybe you just haven’t found it. Don’t quit looking. Yes, I’m just bashing myself in the head right now for not being as productive as I’ve wanted to be these past six months or so. But writing this right now has definitely given me that extra boost along with the thoughts that run thru my head. I’m not after global domination. I’m just after doing more than you. You’ll keep going but I’ll never stop.


Someone relay to Kent not to forget about Saturday ’cause he’s been a recluse & that’s highly uncouth in the realm of responsibility.
