A long time doesn't really cover it I suppose! As far as time goes, I guess we need to use it where its needed the most!
Great to hear that "... it's all great stuff." There was a time a few years ago when I think things weren't as good as they are now for you. Happy to hear that things are better now.
As for me, things going alright. Finished NaNoWriMo for the second time this year and beat my word count by just over 11k words! Besides that, my wife is taking me to Jamaica for my birthday in April which I hope will be an awesome time. The kids are good, my wife is good, my hobbies are doing alright and work stinks... but you can't win em all I guess, right? The important things are good though and that's what counts.
If you figure out how to get yourself more time, let me know! It's probably something worth millions!
Wow! Here we are again right at the beginning of the holidays! Been way too long since I was here and even longer since you and I had a chat.
Hope you're well though. I've seen a few pretty awesome things happening for you on Facebook such as the house renos and the new baby. CONGRATULATIONS!!
Seems like things are going really well for you and that's a great thing, buddy! Anyway, just like last year, have a great Christmas and an awesome new year!
Hey Nate! Not sure if you still check this place out or not. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and I hope you have a very Happy New Year!
I did NaNoWriMo this year and I actually finished. There were some days when I thought there was no way that I would get done but with a little encouragement from my wife, I did it. 51000 words in 30 days. A lot of it was goo but it's out so thats something.
Anyway, I hope you're writing a lot and I hope that there are more stories coming out for us all to read soon! Take care! Talk soon!
Good to hear, man. Really good to hear.
Hey, a friend of mine told me about a website called sixminutestory.com. Have you ever heard of it? Basically, everyday except Friday you're given a prompt and you have to write as much as you can based on that prompt in six minutes. Once that time is up, you can no longer edit what you wrote and it's available for anyone who wants to read it to do just that. I've done a couple but they were on a Friday which is a free for all kind of day. No prompt. It's tough to do but kind of cool at the same time. Gets you out of your head for a second or two to just write something. And you can't edit because there's no time for that. It's basically a snapshot of an idea. A concept I guess and that is what's important. If you haven't heard of it, give it a look and let me know what you think!
I'll keep a really close eye out for The Reach because I really want to read that one! I'll be ticked if I can't get my hands on one. I'll have to ask everyone I know from other cities to look for it for me too... gotta have it!
You take care of yourself. Great to hear that you're doing so well though. I saw on facebook that you're in a relationship too... again, great to hear!
Hey Nate! I noticed on Facebook that your status is "in a relationship"... nice buddy! I hope it's going well!
As for me, I haven't touched my stories in months and feel that I've done, again, what I always seem to do and that's just fizzle out... maybe one day I'll get something done.
Anyway, hopefully everything is awesome in your life. I can't wait to read Sparrow! And I'm still looking for a copy of The Reach... I'll find it... oh yes, I WILL find it...
Well, now football season has started! Man the year is going by so quickly! Baseball season is half over, football season just started (CFL that is) and my daughters birthday, which marks the middle of the year, has passed. You know there are only about 170 days until Christmas?! Whoa, it's just motoring along, passing by, dwindling down. I suppose that's going to happen with every year but they seem to be going by a lot quickly than they used to.
Anyway, hope you're doing as good as you were four months ago! I hope you're feeling creative and getting a lot of writing done and I hope that you get to ride this great wave that is Sparrow for a good long time. Told ya... you'll be a household name in no time!!
That's great to hear! So it was an accurate prediction so far! And that of course would refer to 2010 being a great year for you. Things are going alright for me. Still dealing with my wife's ankle injury but besides that, things are okay. We were in the dominican again in January and I have a couple of weeks off in July. I'm gonna take some time to figure myself out, you know?
But, it's great to hear that things are brightening up for you and hopefully that trend will keep up for a good while! Maybe even longer!
Mr. Nate! How the heck are ya,man? Been a while so I figured I would drop you a message to see what has been happening with you lately. By that of course I mean the family situation that you were dealing with half of last year. How are things going on that front? Any resolutions? Any headway at all? I sure hope so.
Baseball season has basically started. Well, at least the preseason has started and my BlueJays are playing basically like they've been playing for the last 15 years. The Leafs were out of the playoffs after 10 games this year and I have to wait until June for the CFL to start again. I think we'll go see a game live this year. Never been to one so it should be an experience.
Anyway, hopefully you're doing really well... with everything. Keep in touch!
Awesome! Can't wait to read SPARROW and I'm still trying to get my hands on a copy of THE REACH. I wish I had more time to read but so far I'm really enjoying THE BONE FACTORY. I've been trying to learn web design so I can maybe change my circumstances a little. Not really enjoying my job at the moment and I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. Not sure how to get out of it either.
Anyway, there are only 19 and a half days left until the holidays and then we'll be on a plane to Victoria for a week. I'm really looking forward to that because it will be some desperately needed rest and relaxation.
As for writing, I think about it all the time... but I haven't written a word in weeks.
So, have a great holiday season, get some writing done and relax a little too. Here's to an amazing 2010!
Talk to you soon.
Really? You have some troubling family developments too? I hope nothing too serious.
Well, I think that when people read the novels that you already have available they're hooked and can't wait for the next one to become available. And when the reader base gets wide enough you'll be set. Besides, you're brilliant passion for the craft will get you there whether SPARROW ROCK is the breakout novel or not. You will get there.
I wrote for a little bit today because I was at home while our flooring was being installed. It felt kind of dry but it's there. I also heard about NaNoWriMo. Not sure if I'll sign up for that or not but it's something to think about since it's coming up soon.
I'm really looking forward to SPARROW ROCK. May 2010 won't get here soon enough!
Wow! You are a writing juggernaut! Most impressive! The best you've ever done??!! Might be your breakout novel??!! I can't wait to get my hands on it then! That is really awesome! I'm excited for you!
I've been managing to get some reading in lately. More than I have in the last while anyway. We've had some troubling developments in our family that demand attention so I haven't turned as many pages as I would like to. I've been reading the DEXTER series as well as some King that I have on my shelf that are as yet unread. Hopefully things will settle in the next couple of weeks and I can get some real reading done!
Keep going, Nate. Personally, I think you're well beyond well on your way to writing full time and as your living! I hope it happens for you soon!
