Okay, I'm hooked

"It’s true that I really enjoy writing, but it’s rarely easy. That’s part of the point for me: the challenge. It’s fun, but it’s not like I sit at my keyboard, occasionally throwing my arms into the air and squealing, 'Wheeeeeee! I’m writing!'”

I came across a guest blogpost on the Men with Pens blog written by Josh Hanagarne, World’s Strongest Librarian (which is also the name of his blog)

Anyone who can make me laugh is worth my time. Check out his blog.

Too awesome

Check this site out: Steel Head Studio

They held a game party to ring in the new year and created 100 cupcakes with 100 different games represented as the toppings. How many can you guess? I didn't keep track, but I think I got at least 2/3 right.

Friends of mine are considering a game night soon...maybe I should offer to make refreshments?

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my wonderful, faithful readers.

This past year had its up and downs for everyone. For me, my life took a downhill slide in August and I'm still sliding down. I'm praying I hit the bottom very, very, very soon so I can start that long slow climb back up to true happiness. I'm hoping this year, this JANUARY, things will turn around for me.

I've done a lot of writing over the past two months, primarily due to NaNoWriMo, and I'm determined to keep writing. My critique group is gearing up for first submissions next Saturday and I have several scenes ready to go. My goal there is to have my NaNo novel edited and reviewed by my friends by the end of March or April. is offering all successful NaNoists a free printed "proof" copy of their novels and I want to have this one submitted before the June 1 deadline.

My hopes for everyone is that 2010 be a happier, healthier, saner year that the previous one. That we all manage to hang on to what is right and precious in our lives and that when we stand on the brink of 2011, we can look back on 2010, smile at all we've accomplished, and look happily toward the future.
