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.

Very Brief Update

Happy 2011!!!! I hope everyone has their resolutions tucked away into the oblivion of another year of failing to accomplish them (and for some of us not even try).

Having taken the month of December away from writing, I’m finishing my novel that I started during NaNoWriMo 2010. Hopefully, with fingers firmly crossed (along with eyes), I will have a completed novel by the end of January and will begin editing through February and probably March as well.
