I'm still here - Updates, fundraising, guest blogging.

I'm still out here in blog town.  I've been working a lot lately with my day job, and also spending most of my free time focusing on finishing up my rough draft of the novel I'm working on right now.  It's going really well with the novel.  I'm almost there, really.  Only a couple chapters away actually. 

Then I can put it away for a month or two while I start planning the second book and get prepared for November.  I plan on getting my first 50K of book two done in November during NaNoWriMo. It's always a good way to just get the words out and let go of worrying.  Just trusting what I've planned and seeing what happens instead of stressing and letting myself get worried about what might be coming next.  I'm also raising money for Office of Letters & Light/NaNoWriMo and the Night of Writing Dangerously fundraiser this year so the can help put the program in schools and do all the great programs that they do each year.  So, if you'd like to help me out, please donate.  my goal is pretty modest, but I'd sure like to go far beyond it.

I'm also raising the money in memory of my cat who passed away at the end of November last year.  It was a very tough November, and this year I'm going to kick Novembers ASS.  You heard it here first.  Remember that when I start complaining.

This Sunday I'll be guest blogging over at my friend's Sheryl R. Hayes Blog.  There I will pretend I know things about writing and say stuff about words that seem pretty darn convincing thus proving I know at least a few things about writing.   Also, by doing this guest blog thing I'm guilting myself into being more regular about writing my own blogs. Hilarious.

I have plans though! 

In the next few weeks I plan to write blogs about the Novel I've been working on and some of the things that I've struggled with. 
Such as names that begin with the letter G, just like an episode of Sesame Street.
Going on a never ending research spiral.
Do you let family beta certain kinds of stories read if they have PTSD?

So, I leave you with these exciting preview ideas of what will come in October, because that's when I plan to write about these things.  Until then, this has been a semi irregular blog from me.
