Class Lateness

Every morning, I have to write at least one article for Unplggd before I leave for school or work. There is just no way that I’m home in time to write one for the 5:30PM deadline. This has a tendency of making me late. At least I’m professional. I’m only late for my morning classes (the ones that I attend at school, not the ones that I teach!), and not by much. Between 3-5 minutes. It’s really annoying, but I’ve yet to find a system that won’t make me late. I’ve tried waking up earlier but it’s to no avail.

I could always write before I go to bed, but that rarely works. I’m just too tired.

Stories Page Updated

With all this writing that I’m doing for NaNoWriMo, I got a feeling that it would be a good idea to update by Stories page on this blog, which indexes all of my creative writing. I haven’t updated the Articles page in months and I’m not sure that I’m going to do it. There are a lot of posts to go through.

A quick update: I’m at around 30000 words for Symria. The target is to reach 50000 by the end of the month.

Another quick word to all you haters out there, I always post my sources when I quote someone. All of the words from the Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake post are mine. I’d thought that I’d just to make things clear.

Strange Happenings

Strange stuff just keeps happening today.

This morning, on my way to work on my scooter, it was raining. I hate being on the bike when it rains, it totally sucks balls. My visor keeps getting fogged up, the end of my trousers is wet for most of the day, and I just don’t like it.

Plaisirs Circonstanciels

Il lui joue un tour,
Après elle tombe en amour
Il la fait monter chez elle,
Et la fait monter au ciel,
Plaisirs circonstanciels.

Plaisirs Circonstanciels, Stéphane Bass (1992)

Here is a quick translation:

He plays a trick on her
Then she falls in love
He takes her up to her place
And brings her to heaven (implying that they make love)
Circumstantial pleasures.

Symria And NaNoWriMo

Just thought that I’d give everyone a quick NaNoWriMo update.

I’ve successfully written over 20300 at the writing of this post. I have about 30000 left to complete this novel. Symria is progressing well. I’ve honestly become totally obsessed and focused about this story. The story is slowly taking shape, and I am inserting more elements of the Symrian Mythos that I need. I keep a notebook with me at all times to write down ideas as they come to me. I’ve dreamt about the story and found new ideas. I’ve been at work and had new ideas. I like typing out the things I’ve written down by hand. It gives you the time to rewrite and edit things. I’ve also done a lot of research over the last few days. I wanted to have about 30000 by tonight. We’ll see how things go later. Right now, things are really good. There is a lot of editing needed in certain parts and minor rewrites, such as the prologue and the first interlude, but all in all, I’m pretty happy.

And So It Begins… NaNoWriMo That Is!

A quick logo I created today for my Facebook profile. I took the photo in Phuket, Thailand.

Well, it’s begun!

I’m really excited. I’ve been writing throughout the day and I have been able to write almost 2000 words. That’s pretty cool. I’m still on it right now. I’m wondering how I will manage to draw, write and blog at the same time. Oh, and there’s a little thing called work as well that I do every week day, from 7AM to 7:40PM!

Here is a link to my NaNoWriMo profile.

My Thoughts On NaNoWriMo And Symria

I’ve enrolled in NaNoWriMo this year. Here is my profile. I’ll be writing 50K words on Symria, The Land of Dreams. It’s a daunting task, but after the stress from all of this year, I feel pretty motivated. On top of that, I look forward to finishing and continuing my other stories. I find synergy in writing. This often leads to writing other pieces.

NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month 2007

A cloud in Taipei. The sky has been extremely beautiful in the past few weeks and I’ve been taking a lot of photos of clouds.

I’m currently considering participating in NaNoWriMo this year.

Let me just explain quickly.
