I WIN!

nano_2006_winner_small

It isn't the greatest thing ever written, but my story "Snow White and the Prince No Show" is officially done and done! 50,000 words in 30 days (actually, I did it in 28).
I've written the story of Sara White, Snow White's descendant who goes back in time to save Snow White by waking her up with a magic potion taken from a dragon's lair.

Silly premise for a story, but a terrific experience in commitment to getting it done. 50,000 words is a lot of words!

Borat is Everywhere

Borat is everywhere. I saw the flick on Saturday and walked out with a big goofy smile on my face and an upset stomach from laughing so much.

On ESPN's College Gameday on Saturday, behind Chris and the boys was the funniest sign I have seen in a long time. As they did the pre-game for the USC/Notre Dame game, someone was waving a huge photo of Borat with the words:

US and C is Nice!

For whatever reason, I got a huge kick out of this and even now, find it amusing (er, Mind Numbing.)

My Novel



Yes, I'm actually trying to write this thing... 50,000 words in November. 3,000 down, 47,000 to go!

So what am I writing about? I had this idea a few years ago about a what would have happened if Snow White's prince never showed up.

Here's the prologue:
As it was, the king’s son took ill one morning and decided to forgo his trip through the forest.

In less than 30 days, we'll see if this isn't just the worst novel of all time!
