Thanksgiving Thoughts and an Update...

FIrst off, HAPPY THANKSGIVING everybody.  A day early, but I'm not going to be working tomorrow so I had to get it out now.

Next up, I'm still without a properly working laptop.  My old one is still working as a word processor and I've been able to make some progress on the 7th edit of my novel.  Just haven't had much time to work on it due to college demands.  Hope to get further on it over the next 4 days.  I was going to get a replacement this weekend when I visited family, unfortunately the check engine light in my car came on and that trip has been nixed, until I get the car checked and fixed.  Oh, well.

I'm also hoping to get a couple of 'finals' done for college as well.  Instead of exams, I'm getting papers that need to be done.  One is already completed, it just needs to be edited and cleaned up.  The other I've already got the material to work from, I just got to get it started.  I also hope to complete a third paper this weekend or at least get it well under way.  Then the only "FINAL" I have to worry about is a regular test in my Spanish class, that really doesn't count much.  My teacher drops our lowest test score and I've gotten A's on all my tests this semester already.

I'm also fighting a bad cold bug which is in a holding pattern right now.  It's not getting worse, but it's not getting better either.  I'm hoping for the latter soon.

So that's where I've been and what's going on.  I hope to do another more helpful entry here soon.  All I can say for now is have a safe and happy Thanksgiving and keep writing.  Look to your dreams for inspiration.  Because some of those funkier ones can give you ideas for new storylines and characters.  Believe me I've had more than one of those.  Play with the ideas, flesh them out and see where you can go with them.

Enjoy, and thanks for being patient between blog posts.

So, you can all see what's been happening
