I must apologize for my absence from this blog. It has always been one that I only posted on occasionally, but lately it has become terribly neglected.  There are many reasons for this, which are really not that interesting so I won't bore you.  At the moment, I'm trying to work on several projects at once. One of them is Robert Lee Brewers ("Poetic Asides") November Poem a Day Challenge, which I didn't quite get through last year, but I am determined to conquer this year. I'm also working on NaNoWriMo which is, I don't know, some Martian language for National Novel Writing Month.  The goal is to write an entire novel in a month. You are encouraged NOT to edit or rewrite. The point is to get the story down. Cleaning it up comes later.  While I don't see myself able to finish a two or three hundred page novel in the next few weeks, I am working on a story. I'm not putting any kind of label on it until I see how it goes.  My writing seems to take on a life of its own and who am I to get in the way early on?   I will try to write about my progress if possible. At this point, I have about seven pages handwritten, which, believe it or not will probably translate into about ten or twelve typed out. (I have my own messy short-hand)

To see what I'm doing for the Poem a Day Challenge check out my other blog:
