Anno Domini 2013 So Far…

With another stupendous failure for 2012′s NaNoWriMo and the cancelling of Script Frenzy, I’ve decided that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start planning for 2013′s NaNo. I’ve begun to run through a self-imposed exercise where, once a week,  I would write the first chapter of whatever story or concept had popped into my already over cluttered brain. Some very interesting things have come out of those exercises.

The story that has captured the most of my attention is an epic scale Sci-Fi yarn and just from the original idea, I have laid out the possibility of *drum roll* three complete books! That’s pretty hefty for me, but I like where it’s going. That being said, I’m outlining and getting my feet wet with writing a few chapters ahead of time (don’t worry, I’ll still be able to make 50k words in Nov., as I’ve got a plethora of characters and intrigues).

I’m excited about how this is going. Something else I have decided is, if I fail to reach goal this year, then I will spend the next year finishing, editing and rewriting all the NaNo’s where I did not reach goal. Call it punishment, masochistic tendencies, whatever…I can take the abuse.

Ongoing … and going … and going …

Since New Year’s resolutions are meant to be broken, I’ve decided to go with “goals” for the year. It’s nearly February and I’m already falling behind on those goals.

Let me explain. I’ve set a goal to write on a more consistent basis this year. So, while I’m finishing my NaNo (Puppeteer) I have also been writing some short stories. I’m desperately trying to hone my craft and the best way to do that is to write. Often. And to read.

That’s the goal and the story — and I’m sticking to it!

Off Topic … Yet Interesting

I have to mention this before it fades from memory so bad that I have to revisit it.


This movie is well done and intense. It has a fairly large cast for a film that takes place in a single room. Just read the synopsis and then try not to go out and find it. It’s on NetFlix by the way. It is well worth the watch. You’re not getting any spoilers from me because I wouldn’t want you to miss a thing.

New and Improved Crypto

Welcome to Cryptognosis! I’ll be posting progress reports on my various works as well as a bunch of random thoughts. The rest of this real estate will be filled with finished novels and where to get them as well as possibly a few podcasts.
