I spent the month of November 2004 hunched over my keyboard writing a novel of 50,000 words. Why? Well, I was dared by a friend to "compete" in NaNoWriMo, having sent the link to a group of friends last year. The friend who sent the reminder failed, but I and another friend suceeded this year. Is it a good novel? Well, no, but still, I wrote 50,000 (actually 52,000) words in the 30 days of November, and "won" NaNoWriMo. What did YOU do during November? Check out my profile at the link given, or bookmark NaNoWriMo so you can write your own novel next year!
Geez, you'd think I'd learn, but I did it again. Once again a friend says she's going for it, and we're all pussies if we don't too; I'm the only one to take her up on her challenge, and the only one to succeed this time. It was an exhausting November, as I stayed up regularly past my bedtime, but it paid off. Not in quality, exactly, but with accomplishment.
Guess who dared us to do what again? That's right, November was NaNoWriMo time again. Boy, I really didn't want to, as I didn't have any good story ideas. But I couldn't let her tie me! End results? I barely squeaked by (50,014), but neither she nor my brother, a first timer, got by the 40K mark. Yay, I'm the winner!
I am a member of Cyberpunks Entertainment, who released Stella Gets A New Brain and more recently Version 2.0, as well as Stella At 20, a videotape documentary of the old Atari programmers.
I took over editing the 2600 Connection newsletter from Tim Duarte after issue 50, but he still maintains the web page.
I also edited a zine called Slap-Dash, but not very regularly at all, and there's no web page dedicated to it yet. The are some writing samples at the On File site (or the old On File site).
I am on staff at Digital Press, though I don't write as much as other staffers.
I am a member of the band Dethkorpz, whose six albums are available on CDR. We are happy to accept orders for the albums (or the related Lord Bryon album), just contact us via my email address or the band web page. The band is on hiatus again due to a member moving back to scenic Madison WI.
Hey! I've got some electronic games for trade (maybe sale), perhaps a couple other things.
