NaNoWriMo Right Around The Corner.

So, I'm very aware that my posting has slowed down tremendously these past few weeks. I'm sorry! It's not my fault! School work is starting to rear it's ugly head, I'm in the process of applying to university, and I have a social life.

PLUS NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. I didn't realize it till just now, but it's only five days away. Goodness gracious: I'm extremely terrified and extremely excited. Last year I only got to 5000 words or so before I gave up, but I'm determined to make it this year to the full and ripe 50,000 words. We'll see how that goes. :)

I fully encourage anyone who is serious about writing or even those who've always thought it would be cool to write a novel to participate. It'as thirty days of mayhem, but really so much fun to get involved with the community and so rewarding to come out of the month with something. Be it a couple thousand words or a full manuscript.

The website is here: http://www.nanowrimo.org

Check it out, and then join me for a month of baggy eyes, ideas squeezed from a ragged and dry sponge, and bloody messes for fingers. :)




    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.


    As a native Swede, I am particularly proud of my love poetry suite Sonnets for Katie.

    La présence; un coup de vie morte? non, ce n'est qu'être. Et puis pour l'errante fenêtre: étant vue la nuit, dans tous le coins des rues de la veille la même étoile.

    Fremde Gedichte


    En el archipielágo del mundo
    los recursos son concentrados,

    algunos barcos azulos
    partieron para la isla más azula.

    Uno grito bajo la mesa
    vuelca uno cantaro;

    visitantes paran
    en preguntas silenciosas –

    el anacrusa de una tromba
    remolinea en la biblioteca.

    CHALLENGE again. I say: generally, e=mc(n-1) for the n-dimensional room. I say this is close to self-evident.You think not? Then prove the contrary!

    And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

    The best way to do it is lining up as a Follower, since then your icon will advertise you indefinitely, and I will follow you in return. Let's forge a mighty alliance of synergy and common interest.
