Atrocity will be an ATROCITY!

I have decided to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days!!

That’s right, I am participating in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. This annual contest challenges would-be authors to write a novel during the month of November.

Since this was an impulse decision I made yesterday, I’m expecting the results to be horrible. It should be hilarious.

Read my novel here:  Atrocity

Do you have an idea for my novel? Should I give up? Tell me about it in the Comments!

Empty Promises

Well, this is embarrassing.

I create a new blog and declare that I will update it every day with useless ramblings.

…And then I don’t post anything for 4 days.

I always advise people to not make promises that you can’t keep.  I have literally yelled, “Stop making empty promises!!” more than once during my lifetime.  So I am ashamed to admit that I have been hypocritical here.  On the Internet.  For everyone to see.

The good news is, according to my Site Stats, zero people have visited this blog in the last 4 days.  So at least nobody was disappointed.

What am I Doing with my Life?

I am still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever know.

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a film director.  Then I arbitrarily decided to be a psychiatrist instead.  College convinced me that I didn’t want to do that either, so I became an investigator.

Now I’m trapped in your typical, 9-5, boring I-hate-my-life desk job.  I’m thinking it’s time for a change.  The problem is this: when you spend six years of your life focused on one career, you don’t build experience in anything else.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer.  I wrote all the time, when I wasn’t busy doing other things.  Most of what I wrote was hilarious; a lot of it was just crazy.  I’m kind of a crazy person.  Most people don’t know about my craziness because I’m a relatively quiet person.  I keep most of the craziness to myself.  But that all changes now.

If I’m going to be famous, I figure I’m going to have to share my craziness with others.  So I started a humor blog, Funny or Crazy?.

Since a lot of what I write isn’t explicitly funny, I have started this blog.  This blog will probably be more like your average, “guess what I did today?” rambling, over-sharing blog.  I have so many observations of the world, maybe somebody will want to read them.
