Less than 24 hours to Nanowrimo

on October 30th, 2009 by Scott

And I pulled a stupid stunt. The story I had pretty well mapped out about a month ago, just didn’t have that spark.  So Thursday I decided that I wouldn’t make it if I had to write that story right now – the outline wasn’t finished, I kept trying to add characters, and the plot [...]

Nanowrimo 2009!!!

on September 26th, 2009 by Scott

Okay, so at this point in the year, I am out of any concept of editing existing novels and planning my next one.  (Very cool and strange to say “next novel”!). Nanowrimo is coming in November and I’ve been plotting already. I took a crappy outline from a couple years ago and am working hard [...]

Getting connected

on September 25th, 2009 by Scott

Alrighty, so trying to plug in again.  First wanted to say tha you can now follow me on Twitter and Facebook (I’ll get the links over here eventually)!  I find it a little strange that a techie like me has taken this long to get into things like Twitter and Facebook.  Sure, they’re frivolous, but [...]

Career vs. Job

on March 3rd, 2009 by Scott

Okay so the thing back in January fell through, and ’nuff said there. Right after that fell though, I found a course on what I currently do with training and instructional design that I was approved to take. It has pretty much changed my mindset. With technology, it is always a challenge to keep on [...]

Kindle and Kindle 2

on February 5th, 2009 by Scott

Okay, so I’m excited about Monday, and the supposed announcement of the Kindle 2.  I’ve owned a Kindle since December 2007.  I have wanted something like this since, really, mid 90′s.  I remember there was this insanely overpriced crappy little screen unit that used mini-CDs for the books.  The only things you could get on [...]

There is no spoon

on January 14th, 2009 by Scott

Or if you prefer Kung Fu Panda, there is no secret ingredient. In writing, it took me an insane number of years and books and classes to find that, really, there is no secret ingredient to crack the code of writing a novel. Okay, already I’ll take that back. The secret is that the first [...]

Unhealthy competition?

on January 12th, 2009 by Scott

My wife and I have a mostly friendly unspoken competition going. We don’t like to ask each other for help. Ever. The mindset of this is mostly that if we can do it all, then we’re unburdening the other from the duty. Unfortunately this competitiion has usually manifested itself in the form of heavy lifting. [...]

Gutting a bathroom

on January 9th, 2009 by Scott

Funny how I wanted to start this blog to chronicle my writing career, yet I haven’t posted anything about writing yet.  Oh well.  At least I’m posting something every day, so far. I’m so happy we’re getting back to our remodeling job.  Starting this afternoon, I plan to tear down the old plaster walls of [...]

Interesting Phenomenon

on January 9th, 2009 by Scott

It seems like whenever I re-start this blog, there’s something that comes along in my professional life that changes dramatically.  This time is no exception.  I’m keeping it quiet for now, because it is way too early to talk about publicly.  Still, it is interesting that this domain seems to have “mystic powers” toward my [...]
