Thanksgiving

Well, here we are, a holiday that comes once a year, though we should practice it everyday, Thanksgiving. I just wanted to post a few things that I’m grateful for.

  1. I’m thankful for God and His redeeming me from sin.
  2. I’m extremely grateful to be homeschooled. Some subjects may be hard, or almost impossible (staring at you chemistry), but I am thankful to Mom, Dad, and God for allowing me this opportunity.
  3. In closing, I’m thankful for the opportunity, love, and hopefully gift of writing. Some days are difficult, but I don’t want to stop being a writer, and giving glory to God through my words.

These are just a few of the many things I am thankful for. If you’d like to share what your thankful for, please comment below. Alright, that’s all I got. Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!David Author Picture

 

NaNoWriMo Update #2

Hey there, guys. Thought I would share my progress so far. As of posting, my word count is at 20,081.

My character has conquered his initial goal. Now, on to the next one.

Only problem is that I’m sort of losing the will to write, but that’s just part of being a writer. 😉 I’m still pushing through, though, hopefully the passion will return soon.

Good luck to everyone, keep on writing!

Audio Book Series for Children of the Bard

Hey there everyone, hope you’re having a great Monday!

I just wanted to share a crowdfunding campaign with you guys. Bryan Davis, author of the bestselling series Dragons in our Midst, Oracles of Fire, and Children of the Bard has started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to fund the creation of audiobooks for Children of the Bard.

Here is a link to the Tilt page and a link to Mr. Davis’ blog.

I’d be obliged if you check the project out. 🙂 Funding stops in 28 days.

Keep on writing for His glory!

NaNoWriMo Update

Hello there, fellow NaNoers and blog readers. I broke through the ten thousand word mark Friday. Yes! As of posting this, my word count is at 10,496.

But, there has been a slight hiccup in the story. A new character has superseded someone I made up weeks ago! I had no prior plans to do this, but really, the basic plot stays the same, with just a few slight differences.

Right now I am in Chapter 4 and still in what I call to be the “First Act”. Not that I’m still in the first scene, but I have three sort of “pinch points” that change the direction of the story at different times, as well as slightly different goals for the MC.

I may bump up my goal to maybe thirty-five or forty thousand words; I’ll just have to see.

Good luck to all of you.

Keep on writing!

The Very Serious Writing Show

I’m not sure about you guys, but I love to listen to podcasts (especially when I’m walking the dog or doing some other chore). There is a podcast you MUST listen to.

It is called the Very Serious Writing Show. Don’t let the name fool you, the host, guests, and listeners have a lot of fun.

It is posted in two parts every weeks. Each episode is about twenty minutes long, give or take.

Some authors that have been interviewed are the following: Bryan Davis, Kerry Nietz, Wayne Thomas Batson, Bill Myers, and Steve Rzasa.

It’s a great resource and just a fun radio show.

You can listen on either iTunes or SoundCloud and here’s a link to the show’s website. You guys should all listen.
