Nanowrimo 2007

I have been quiet on my blog of late - not a whole lot to say... well, not true, lots to say, but I've been putting all my words into my latest novel for National Novel Writing Month. Nano is the greatest thing ever and I plan to do it until I die. May I finish every year.

I struggled this year, and for the first time, I've reached the end of my 50k words and NOT finished my story. I plan to continue, because I liked the writing and love the idea.

This year, my novel is called "The Holy Book of Janus" and is about a far, far future where a space man is stranded on a primitive planet and becomes their messiah. This time around though, he gets to read what all the gospelers are writing about him. How will it turn out? Well, it's not done yet, but I have a good idea now that I've hit my 50,000 words.

Winning means giving!

I read Andy's blog regularly. Recently, he had a post called "Free Stuff is Good", and I was one of the first to comment on his blog, so I won this bottle of wine.

I am now trying to come up with a list of 5 things to give away.

Things that I'm thinking of giving:

- books
- cell phone (just bought a new one, need to give away the old one)
- mp3 player
- radio pen
- skype mike/headphone combination
- Master of Orion III video game

Look for my up and coming blog - I will post what I decide on along with photos.
