Juggling November

Two years ago, I wrote a blog post on Halloween night discussing whether I should take part in NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. I did do NaNo that year and "won," meaning I wrote 50,000 words in the month of November. That first draft sucked. But for the next year and a half I worked … Continue reading Juggling November

Things That Make You Go Hmmm…. Trenton Style

Trenton, New Jersey! The New Jersey state capital. I get to work there and it never ceases to amaze me. First, the people. My biggest complaint about the People of Trenton is that they don't know to "cross on green." It would really help traffic patterns and us out-of-town road-ragers if they'd just follow this … Continue reading Things That Make You Go Hmmm…. Trenton Style
