Big Empty

I really hadn't intended to let October go by without a post here, but it's nearly happened. I'm stopping in to give you some updates and a couple of links of interest.

  • I've been writing, as is my usual excuse. I hope I'll be able to tell you what I've been writing (and even show you) before too long. Such, though, are the vagaries of publishing. More to come on all of this, soon.

  • I urge you all to go out and vote this Tuesday if you haven't already done so. We have early voting here in Kansas and I felt very satisfied when I left the booth today. You may not think your vote counts for much, but it does. If everyone voted, the United States would be a very different place than it is today. Americans should never, ever let anyone tell them what to do. I understand realities, believe me, but it is your RIGHT to vote. It's guaranteed. 
  • I'm participating in NaNoWriMo again this year, for the third time. My idea this year is, I think, good enough to actually do something with it. I might make it my first try at a true novel. All I have to do is write 50,000 words of it in November to be a winner.

Okay, those are the updates. Here are some things I wanted to share with you:

Jon S. Lewis is having quite a discussion about self-publishing that's really interesting. You should hop in and check it out by clicking on his name there.

Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn created a wonderful comic book call Firebreather at Image Comics many moons ago, and now on November 10th it's going to be a movie on Cartoon Network. Here's the trailer:

I'm really excited about seeing this. It's directed by Peter (AEON FLUX) Chung.

You'll notice a few changes around here, too. Most notable is the top header there and the ability to share posts via Twitter and Facebook a little more easily. Feel free to make use of any of those things.

Stay tuned. More to come.

Hi Jason, good to hear you're alive and well.

Hope NaNo goes to plan. 50,000 words is a lot in one month. But, it's probably 'old hat' to you having done it twice before.

Good luck!
