Unfortunately most of you have been trying to hold me tell me that this blog has been delete it as of late. I appreciate the knowledge that many of you have read it by unfortunately it was deleted by LiveJournal itself by accident I was told and no backups can be found according to them. This meant that over half the novel of my biography is going to have to be rewritten. I know maybe I should have better storage for my thoughts in an better backup system or at least copies but I was counting on this website to actually back itself up. What is even worse is that pictures I have been saving and inserting into the blog have also been deleted. If anyone has any of those pictures saved I would appreciate a copy or two and I may even mention you in the dedication page.
Currently I am in the middle of a new novel project, actually more of a philosophy book tentatively titled "open mind , insert nature - the philosophies of an urban Druid" . I admit it's not the greatest title and title may change in the future currently it's only thing that actually came to my mind. The publisher that I've chosen for my writings has decided that more than enough ideas have been presented and it's time to actually finish one of my novels considering I have about 15 half written. Their suggestion is I just write and not care what I put down and what titles are. Basically they said sketched the novel out through a basic layout plan and just type words underneath it and worry about the punctuation later.
So far so good as it's been proofread by two coworkers who shall be nameless but if you're lucky I might consider putting you in the dedication page.
I actually thought voice-recognition system would make writing easier but actually it's a direct opposite. The thoughts just don't flow as fast as actual typing and with my speech defects, I have to make more corrections than if I just type the outright. Sometimes my dyslexia makes things really difficult so the voice-recognition system helps that respect especially when I am tired.
Speaking of dyslexia and spelling problems, if you like whacked out cartoons I have a great site for you. http://devilspanties.keenspot.com/ (no it's not satanic porn) has been a cartoon I've been following for about six years now , since I met Jenny Breeden at the Baltimore comic convention in 2003. She is a real trip and at times really reminds me of myself even though she's about 15 years younger than me. In fact, through meeting her and reading the comics and following her blog, it is what encouraged me to take up writing seriously rather than just the scribbles, poems, and short stories I've had published in college magazines, underground newspapers, and on the web.
Well it's no less than 1 AM on the East Coast which means it's time for bed since I have to be up at 5 to meditate before work.
