After a lot of thought, I have decided not to participate in NaNoWriMo this year.

I have to admit that I feel really crappy about that, as I would really love to do it. I even have a really great idea.

Last year I managed to finish, even though I had one less week to work with. Mind you, I rushed the last twenty pages, which makes me feel not-so-good.

I’m also a little disappointed that I haven’t revisited the story I wrote last year to fix it. When I first told Dave about my idea, he was a bit worried that I wouldn’t make it past ten pages.

So was I.

Surprisingly, it made it all the way to the fifty-thousand words that I was planning on writing. But at around the forty thousand word mark, the story became something more than what it was, and would require a lot more words to finish it.

If I was to have a list of things I would like to complete in the year ahead, that story would be on there.

Mama is Coming to Town

Mama is coming to T-Dot tomorrow. I am very much excited about this.

We haven’t seen her since April, which is far too long.

There will be a lot of celebrating. A few really cool people will be joining us, too.

Today is guaranteed to be the longest day of the year because of how much I am looking forward to this weekend.

  1. I just read the posts about your visit down to DC in April, and all I can think of now is:

    The Vega Bus is Comin!


  2. Mama refused to put me in her suitcase.

    I’m sorry I’m going to miss it but can’t wait to hear all about it.

  3. Kim, I’ll miss you, Heather and Amy. It’s like the four of you are a package deal. But since the airlines won’t allow for a “buy one seat, get three free” deal, I’ll just enjoy Mama to myself. I won’t even share with Jorge!


  4. Damn – I wish I was making a trip to Jorge-land! You guys are going to be having way more fun than I am this weekend.

    Have a great time!

  5. Beer and King of the Hill—-it could very much be worse. Have a great time, and get a head start on World Peace.

  6. Ho-hum Jorge,

    I thought your Mother was coming to visit!! I started reading your blogs because of the one you did describing your first meeting with Kris…

    Crazy, I’ve been cyber-stalking you for about a year. Is it scaring you yet or is my distance comfortable? lol!


  7. You’re stalking me?

    I don’t feel creeped out, so keep on stalking.
