NaNo Cometh…and the Blog Sleepeth


No, I don’t have a lisp. Silly people!

As I write this on Saturday morning, I’m about forty-eight hours away from embarking on a month-long voyage of discovery—about me, as a serious writer. That’s right, National Novel Writing Month is upon us, and I’ll be taking part. (But if you’re even a semi-regular reader, you knew that!)

To add to that “distraction,” I’ll be leaving home on Friday, November 5, to travel first to Miami to meet that Saucy Wench, the wonderfully talented Arleen Barros and her family. The following evening, I fly up to Tampa to spend the ensuing ten days at my son’s home, babysitting the granddaughter for several of those days while Mom and Dad head to Key West to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary.

Consequentially, new articles at the Aerie will probably be even scarcer than they have been, of late. However, I’m hoping to get at least a couple things done, as I meet my daily writing goals. I’m also seriously considering returning to the blog’s roots, and writing more about World of Warcraft. Specifically, I want to write about Enhancement Shamans, since they (we?) appear to be underrepresented in the WoW blogosphere.

I also intend to occasionally write about grammar and usage, as well as the craft of writing, but those missives will occur on an irregular basis, as situations arise that pique my interest.

So hang in there, Dear Readers, and wish me luck (and nimble typing fingers) as I forge through November. In the meantime, Happy Halloween!

    I’m NaNoing too. I’ve only won once – in 2004. Let’s see if I can do it again with a story idea I’ve had for at least 15 years.
