And so it Begins

Camp NaNoWriMo has begun. I am happy to announce that I have written 1, 726 words. To be honest, it was a bit easy today to get the words out. I think it had to do with my preparation and because I knew how I wanted the story to begin. 

The word count, however, is for my fantasy side story I decides to write. I still have the 850 words or so to contribute to the collaboration story with my sister but I’m confident I can get it done. 

So far, I’m off to a good start.

A Writer's Path

by Mercy Pilkington at Good e-Reader

If you’re a self-published author, writing your book is only half the battle. Some might even argue that it’s the easy part of being an author. Indies have been beaten over the head for years now about the need to hire professionals to take the manuscript and turn it into a book, with costs associated with editing, proofreading, cover design, formatting, and marketing.

Share Your Writing!

charles french words reading and writing



Hello to everyone! I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help.  All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This include poetry and non-fiction.

If this event is successful, I will do this about once a month.  To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books.

I hope this idea is successful, and I hope many people share information on their books!


Please follow the following links to find my novel:

A break in the routine

A lot of things have happened in the last two weeks. Some good, some terrible, but I survived. 

Character development for the game is still under way. With the different time zones its difficult to get everyone together. That hasn’t stopped progress yet. 

On the writing side, its been slow. I’ve edited some essays and typed a script up for my job. Nothing too exciting. I decided not to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo. There was just too much going on this month.

Took a trip to the hospital last week. Hence the lack of a post. I’m alright. Just some bruising and scraps. A bit of a scare but it passed. It was a major inconveiance to say the least.

I did go to Austin and San Antonio. That was fun. Played ina soccer game and, as someone who doesn’t do heavy conditioning/ exercise, it wasn’t bad. We did loose. Those PT athletes are no joke. But it was fun.

Lastly, I’m going to a convention this weekend. It’s not for writing though. It’s for a hobby of sorts. I wanted the right to say that I’ve been to an anime convention at least once in my life. Plus, I’m really looking forward to seeing all the cosplay costumes and just enjoying the experience. It’s a break in the routine. Something to do and get out of the house. Possible pictures to come.
